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.
Review Your College
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.
Napa Valley College is all in all a great community college. The college offers many great teachers who truly care about their student's education. Despite this, there are also quite a few teachers who are clearly just there for the paycheck. My best advice is to go online and do some research or rate my professor to truly understand which teachers will work best for you. The college is very clean and has a lot of social activities and clubs to offer students. The worst experience at the college for me has been with the guidance counselors. In order to apply for colleges and figure out which classes I have needed to take I have had no help from school counselors. Each counsolers tells you something different and then you later find out that nothing they said has helped you, just set you back.
