Kalamazoo Valley Community College Reviews

406 reviews
All Categories
Personally, I love Kalamazoo Valley Community college. There are some amazing professors, and a variety of classes, ranging from your general education classes to classes for specific courses. There is a great commune to the campus itself, the Kalamazoo metro. Buses do drop offs and pick ups every half hour, so you'll be able to catch a bus if needed no matter what time your class begins or ends. Also, since it's only a two year college normally, there's no on campus housing. There's an incredible security team at KVCC, they're ready to assist when ever you personally request them. They can also be contacted through one of the many red emergency phones located throughout the campus. Honestly, there isn't really anything that I'd change about KVCC, it's a nice local college.

I absolutely love KVCC! It has a friendly atmosphere, amazing professors, great food, phenomenally free parking, a beautiful campus, and much more! Another perk that KVCC offers are their low prices. When compared to just about any other college anywhere, KVCC's prices are tough to beat.
Considering that it is a 2 year college and doesn’t have all the resources and experiences that a 4 year college has, it is a fairly nice school. Most of my professors have been good and want to see their student succeed. There are a lot of places around the campus to study and work. Wish there were more athletic opportunities, even if it’s just a club team. If you are transferring it is crucial that you double check that you will get credit at your next school. Kvcc is mostly surrounded by forest which makes the drive and view from the library window nice.
