The instructors here are a hit or miss. I've had three good instructors here, out of nine. Some instructors are horrible, and I almost dropped their class, but decided to hang in there and finish because I didn't want to repeat the class. Students are friendly here. I have met a lot of nice, helpful people, including the staff at the book store, cafeteria, and counseling office. I received my AA in Health Science, back in May of 2017, and will be starting their RN program in Spring 2019. I'm excited about this, and nervous at the same time. Good luck to you future students! Keep your head up!

As a student who grew up in a bad environment, evergreen valley college has been really good to me , im going on my 4th year and this would be my last semester before I graduate and transfer. Ive only had 1 unpleasant experience with a professor and all the rest of the instructors were cool and understood my circumstances and help me do well in school, many of them motivated me to try harder. I've also meet really nice people from different nationalities and have had so many study groups each semester. Ive learned here not to judge students by their cover because ive heard many of their stuggles and challenges we face and many people just dont talk about it. Ive felt like we are all in this together, the way we’ve approached our goals. Also, it is in a very nice location by the hills. The staff is also nice people
Overall, Evergreen Valley College is an excellent community college. Opportunities are available to those who seize them and I decided to be as involved as I could as a student, joining my college's Associated Student Government. At the time I joined, I had no idea how this position would influence my decisions and the decisions of those around me. Over the next year, I attended workshops, trainings, conferences, and meetings. I began to understand how my community college operated and what role I played in the large scheme of things. As a representative of the students on campus, I began to hold myself accountable for my own actions. I became aware of the way I interacted with those around me, my own work ethic and the way I presented myself. I've met some of the most hardworking students and faculty members at this college and I'm so grateful for the opportunities I've received at this institution.
