My experience with Kalamazoo Valley was to say the least motivational, the staff there was always helpful and caring and never ceased to challenge my academic abilities. I truly see an alteration in my determination to finish school and work hard for the degree I seek. At the times I felt defeated, and overwhelmed I took advantage of the many resources Valley offers to their students such as, advocates, advisors, tutoring, etc. I wouldn't change a thing, this college experience opened my eyes to what I am capable of and has driven me to continue my education, and I wouldn't be surprised to see a doctorate in my future!
Review Kalamazoo Valley Community College
Kalamazoo Valley is a wonderful community college. The professors are very responsive, parking in convenient, classes are easy to register for, they work with you on payments, and it is one of the cheaper options for receiving your degree. Although the party scene isn't big at Kalamazoo Valley it is close to Western Michigan University so, you can make friends at western and party with them if that is something you want.
I love that I chose to go to KVCC before going on to a four year college. Most of the teachers have been awesome, excluding a few here and there. I recommend to any incoming freshman students to use Ratemyprofessor.com prior to registration or as they are making decisions about registration because I have rarely found a professor that that site has been wrong about. Only one in the three years that I have been there, and even that particular professor I only know the truth about from a few peers, but I never have personally had that professor.
