Imperial Valley College is a small two-year college. The professors are good and clubs better student life however it's their system of guiding students towards their goal that needs improvement. I had the privilege of obtaining a concerned and caring counselor through their student services program. Sadly, this school lacks more advanced prerequisites that universities require making it difficult to complete certain goals students have within their economic means.

I really enjoy studying at Imperial Valley College since all of the teachers I have taken classes with have been extremely helpful. I have enjoyed every single one of my courses. The only thing I would like to change would be the counselor's, they don't listen very well to what the students dreams are and plan out your courses without making sure they are what the student needs. I have had different counselors throughout my year at college and would have liked to have one that would actually listen to what I want to do with my future.
For the price, IVC was definitely the right choice and it provided two years of maturity in order to be successful at a 4 year uni. I discovered some study habits that worked, while others weren't as great. I managed to work my way up from math 91 to calc 3 and I think the smaller class sizes played a positive role in the earlier stages of the process. Partying was almost nonexistent, but clubbing in Mex was always an option so that was a plus and the beach was 2 hrs away in SD which provided a nice getaway every once in a while; it was sort of the best of both worlds. At times, it could get a little boring when gas money was tight, but overall it was a really good experience and a great way to save some money in the process.
