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 Your College
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.
Jobs are the next step directly following getting a degree from this school, and if not a direct job internships along with being a step closer to the next degree required for a particular job are given as well. Alumni tend to work together for the greater good of all of its members. One of the best groups to be a part of is Phi Theta Kappa. I am not one of the outgoing students, though I am intelligent, and Phi Theta Kappa is there for the entire spectrum of smarties. You can be a member and never go to one of their meetings. Employers regularly have meetings at the school and will have fairs to introduce those looking into transferring into four year colleges or directly into a career to their options and the cost of those options. The career center works for you much like education as a whole: they will put in as much time to help you as the time you put in to help yourself. My number one thing I would tell the college freshman version of myself would be to go in and get aquainted with the college counselors sooner. And to visit with them at least once a semester. You may believe you are doing great, and you probably are, but what is the harm in looking into information that you may actually need. And planning ahead for some of the most important points in your life.
