Ventura College Reviews
I like how Ventura College has many events to engage our campus community. I also like the campus food trucks, they have such great food! I do wish they had an actual food place on campus, other than the bookstore mini market. I also wish that there was more parking other than on the residential streets. Parking on the residential streets is mostly 1-2 hour parking and if you are there a minute longer, you get a ticket.
My experience at Ventura College has been an eye opening and growing experience, especially for someone like myself who has been attending VC for about 4 years now. I have had the chance to see and attend job fairs that have given me insightful information about different job opportunities. I also appreciate the fact that Ventura College informs you about free counselor sessions and health center resources. I found it helpful that VC offers a free tutoring center, as well as computers and printers that you can use if you don't own a printer or are in need of doing homework in between classes. When it comes to improving VC, I would suggest that there be more job fairs or information about job fairs given to students that attend evening classes. I would also like to see more options for healthy food being sold on campus and in the student store as well as it would be amazing to see healthy eating habits being promoted.
For a community college, It offers everything you could possibly need to get you to your next step in your goal. I am currently a student who is looking to transfer in the upcoming fall semester and VC has certainly prepared me to do so. The counselors are great, especially if you find one you really like and stick with him or her throughout the process. I have had some outstanding teachers that really seem to care about you, especially in comparison to high school teachers. VC is an affordable option that really prepares you. No complaints about this school.
