Skagit Valley College Reviews
SVC is a warm, welcoming place. As community colleges go, the population is diverse in several ways (race, age, religion). The professors reflect that. The thing I'd love for them to work on is getting their satellite schools to be better. Whidbey Island campus, for example, has no cafeteria and lacks many lab spaces so many science classes are impossible without commuting to Mount Vernon -- a one-hour drive one-way. Mount Vernon campus is great in every aspect, but the other campuses are lacking in opportunities.
The teachers really go the extra mile in order to reach out to you when taking online classes. Normally taking online classes would be the hardest part, yet all the classes I have taken online have been very beneficial in my learning and quick access to the teachers via email or even texting when needed! The instructions were always thorough and challenging to the mind too.
I have enjoyed going to Skagit Valley College! The campus is easy to navigate. The professors have been very knowledgable and helpful. I highly recommend going to this school.
