I was hesitant to attend San Bernardino Valley College but after a year here, I am glad that I made the choice to start. I was very pleasantly surprised by the Professors, the majority that I've had classes with have been helpful beyond my expectations. The support that the school offers in the form of Supplemental Instructors, Counselors, and assistance programs has been amazing. San Bernardino Valley College doesn't pass out A's to anyone who wants them, you have to be willing to work for it but it is possible to succeed here. I have been able to maintain a 4.0 GPA throughout my first year and three summer classes. To top it off, I will be graduating with a double major in the Spring!
Review San Bernardino Valley College
I was a high school drop out when I started SBVC. I changed my life, I had the best math professor. Dr. Zadock Reid...he taught me that I could do math...all the way up to multivariable calculus...and I started in his Pre-Algebra class! Another professor there is Professor Glass taught me chemistry, and there was a swim instructor who actually swam the English Channel when she was 65...not sure if she's still there but she's awesome too! I highly recommend this school!
I love most of my Professors and the other student. The Counseling department needs much work, so as Students do not get misdirected in their studies. Also, finachial aide needs more workers and improvements, so you complete all your extra paperwork at one time. Other then these short comings this is a great campus!
