I am attending the Napa Valley College as a part-time student. My favorite thing about the college would be that the teachers are great with their subjects and with the students. My first experience there was during the summer and although it was school during summer it was one of the best summers ever! The campus is gorgeous and people there are very nice. They also have very good security for the students. Another very important characteristic is that the academics are excellent. The campus is always very clean, they offer a numerous amount of courses for general education. The Napa Valley College is a community full of knowledge and harmony.

I like that Napa Valley College is a close commute for me. It’s very affordable and a great place to start instead of going straight into a four year college. What I’d like to see change the most is the organization of the website. It’s very difficult to find what you’re looking for. It’s also very hard to find and contact staff. It’s like they don’t want you to contact them. Few teachers are very good about keeping in contact with their CURRENT students. When it comes to prospective students it takes forever to get a response. In regards to the campus, I know it’s small but I wish there was a bigger indoor space for people to congregate and eat. The cafe is too small, the cafeteria too loud, filled with one type of crowd and doesn’t serve food, and theres no food allowed in the library.
After graduating from high school, I decided to attend Napa Valley College to receive an Associate's Degree and complete my general education before transferring to a four-year college. The application process was simple and straightforward. I was matched with my counselor, Elizabeth Laura, who is the counselor for all Science, Technology, Engineering, Math students. She has been incredibly helpful and supportive these last few years. I have not met with any other counselor, so I cannot give a review on the whole counseling staff, but my personal experience has been nothing but positive. The campus is clean and it is fairly easy to find your way around. All of the professors that I have had have been professional and pleasant. I have enjoyed most of my classes at Napa Valley College. Overall, I have enjoyed my time at Napa Valley College.
