Attending Los Angeles Valley College was one of the best choices I ever made. Not only did I save money by attending this community college, I also attained an amazing educational experience that has greatly prepared me for university. The counselors are there to help you, but I would highly recommend that everyone who attending LAVC to participate in student organizations because that is where I attained some of the best advice. Most students at LAVC are more than happy to provide assistance or advice. I would highly advise students who attend LAVC to join a student organization or club, carefully pick professors, and enjoy!

Valley has improved in quality over the years I have been there. At first, it did fit the description about how it resembled a "high school" instead of a college. Now, the campus has grown, they have become stricter in terms of admissions and financial process-- which is actually good because that way those who actually need the money can get it.

An awesome part about Valley, is that it is part of the LACC District (LACCD), and so when you can't find a particular class you need, you can venture into the other schools that are part of the district.

Before, I would have to separately print out schedules and transcripts from all the LACCD schools I was attending, but now, everything is listed within one sole class schedule and one sole transcript.
What I like about valley college is my experience with some of the professors I had. Some of them weren't good but I had a select few that I absolutely loved. They were very passionate and smart about what they taught and they really tried to execute it as best as they can to their students. The school itself is alright, it is pretty old and the architecture of it all should be renovated, but overall, the school provides a lot of resources for transfer students and that is really what is most important (on top of having good classes/professors of course). Also, I think they need to offer a bit more of classes, especially computer science classes.
