Besides being #1 Transfer Rate in Orange County and the state of California! Professors are very helpful, care about their students and available outside of class. There are many great programs such as EOPS that help you with academic planning and borrowing books for free. More parking lots are needed. And it would be nice to see more healthy food options around campus other than the only privately owned restaurant that is overpriced and not fresh.

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.
Irvine Valley College is an excellent community college. I have attended several various community colleges and IVC is by far my favorite. First off, I love the campus because of its “quaint” size, it is far less intimidating, especially for first-time and adult students. Although the campus is small there is a beautiful performing arts center on campus as well as some grassy quad areas for studying and lounging outdoors. Apart from the aesthetics and accessibility, there are lots of services and events that are incredibly helpful with the “college experience” including helping you find a major, transferring, financial aid, and more. The professors are caring and want you to succeed. Many will reply to after-hours emails and meet even at times that do not fall within their office hours. Parking can be a bit of a conundrum and books are quite expensive, but other than those two complaints, I really don’t have anything else negative to say about the school.
