Kalamazoo Valley Community College Reviews
I'm still attending KVCC and as of right now, I've only been there for this one semester. It's my first ever college experience! It's great, truly it is. My professors show my peers and I that they care about what they're teaching and they're adamant on making sure we understand the criteria. I feel that all of my professors could be good friends even outside of a school environment. They're cool people. On top of that, I work at the school as apart of their work study program and I love that job. My bosses are excellent and kind people. It's a place that I recommend to anybody.
I have just started at Kalamazoo Valley Community College and I am taking all of my classes online due to Coronavirus. My classes are just beginning and all of my teachers have done a great job making sure you are in touch with the programs you are expected to use! Online isn’t easy, but we’ve been in contact daily and are starting to configure what works best for me when I’m learning and how my learning style fits me with the online classes.
The staff is very helpful and friendly including the teachers, but make sure when you have questions in regards to the degree you're working towards ask very clear questions and ask them as often as you can so you don't become confused on anything! I was told the wrong information a couple of times and had to ask around more once it was too late to get the answers I needed.
