I have met incredible people including most teachers at Imperial Valley College and learned a lot. I have met my best friends in this college, and i can say they are genuine, loving and caring people. I would want change is the student campus life. There should be better student lounge because we live in the desert with 100 plus degree Fahrenheit weather. Maybe even give the teachers lounge to students and make a new one for the teachers that itself would make everyone way happier. Also have more associate degree options.

My experience here has been great. At first I was disoriented but, by asking I've got to learn and solve my inquiries. Its awesome how can this college help you succeed, and help you transfer for so much greatness. I have taken diverse classes and with many interesting and helpful teachers, and even some that advise you about how to deal with some circumstances and help you growth inside and out too. I will always recommend to apply here and have a great study opportunity. At here you can find programs that will help you financially and in your study difficulties, that is what I like the most. It has a great location for foreigners that are excited to study in here. The library is huge and has diverse types of books and computer labs too. The school is very organized and open to hear students.
What I admire most about Imperial Valley College is that even though it has many critics constantly stomping on the school's reputation, IVC's priority is not only to give students education, but for them to be successful. The community college does everything possible to ensure they transfer to 4 year universities and have a clear goal when it comes to careers. Counselors are extremely helpful. Professors do not refuse when students need help. Programs offered in the school surely improve student and campus life. Without doubt, it does have a great educational environment that can prepare me for a brighter future. Now that the school is expanding, I would like to see more courses offered like Veterinary Sciences, Biology, etc.
