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.
Review Imperial Valley College
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.
Imperial Valley College has a very unique atmosphere. It is surrounded by agriculture and desert. The people who attend are very humble and always trying to help and learn from one another. The professors are very engaged with their students and care deeply about their success. Because IVC is such a small school, they make it a priority to help every student accomplish their goals.
