I've had a great experience coming to this college all thanks to my dear friends, counselors, and to everyone else who helped me advance thus far. My counselor has been a great guide, ensuring the classes I took were related to general ED and what the university requires; they also make you think outside the box. On top of that, they are always there for you under your stressful times, which is vey much appreciated. In addition to that, the professors have also formed an alliance to make sure I pass my classes and succeed with my career. Thus, helped me with resumes and provided letter of reccomendations to jobs or volunteers programs. I am nothing but grateful to have the priviledge to have first started my college experience in this community college.
I attend a small community college that is about 11 minutes away from my house. Before I even considered enrolling in Imperial Valley College, I had always heard the worst things about the school and it mostly consisted of it just being to small and never being able to register for the classes that you need. I have been attending this college for a full year now and I still don't have any complaints. I think for someone who is not ready to be to independent yet a small sized college is great because it allows you to get to know your peers and your professor's without worrying if you'll ever see them again or not. When it came to registering for classes my friend had informed me about a program (EOPS) which provides you with your own counselor throughout the years and allows your to get priority registration so I never really have to worry if I will get in a class or not. I will admit it isn't the wild college experience that you see in movies but it sure is a great start.
The major psychology is one of the more interesting major for me and many people in my colleges choose to take it. The class are very interesting since the major involves a lot of critical thinking, analyzing situations, common sense and also includes sciences like biology, and chemistry which we can see how people react according to chemical reactions in our body or mind. We see how we are biological made and that opens our mind to realize how people think and that all we are very different according to our nurture or nature. A good thing about my college is that you can finish an Associete degree for transfer and then finish a Bachelors degree in a university. I'm looking forward to transfer to a state university. My college provides good conselors which are very helpful assistance if you don't know what are the requirements to tranfer and deadlines applications.
