Irvine Valley College Reviews
Irvine Valley College has great resources for research and participation in enriched learning programs! Counselors help guide you on the rught path and help makes the process of transferring to a four year insitution a lot less stressful. Furthermore, IVC has great professors that are extremely encouraging. They truly want to see you succeed and try their best to hell you get where you want to go. They are supportive of everyone’s different pathways in life.
My freshman year at Irvine Valley was a smooth and composed transition from high school. I was quick to notice course work differences from Mater Dei High School to IVC, but had grown comfortable over time as I was guided by professors and new faces. IVC has a beautiful campus with a wide range of diverse students, allowing me to be a part of a community that’s unique. Academics are taught by determined and caring professors, whose goal is to provide students with knowledge helping their future plans and step out of their comfort zone. Along with teachers, guidance counselors were there to assist a students needs and answers, while making us comfortable. Unfortunately, an assault occurred during my year, making me feel uneasy at times as I walked to my car, but as time went on I took notice to IVC’s police authorities always being on campus at every corner, slowly helping me feel safer. IVC had excelled in making this transition easy, I felt there wasn’t a need to make changes.
I would like to see more change in how it helps students who are minorities. Especially those with mental disabilities. I wish the Disabilities Program there at IVC would be more inclusive and also allow for more leeway. Such as they can excuse absences and give an extension on assignments. The reason for this is because sometimes for the student it is overwhelming or intimidating to talk to a professor and sometimes the professor is not as understanding. Therefore, this is the only trouble that I truly had at IVC.
