Ventura College Reviews

The level of experience brought to my major by the various instructors is second to none. Our facilities and practice equipment Are high tech and well maintained.
The college frequently has on campus events providing free food to students, extensive information about all college sponsored and related programs, campus clubs, sports programs, and volunteer opportunities. All supporting/administrative staff that I have encountered have been knowledgeable and helpful.

It would be nice if there were more food options on campus than the daily food trucks and a few vending machines. And despite the fact that there is a Starbucks across the street, it's extremely irritating that there is no coffee available on campus. College students live on coffee.

Ventura College is a great pick! Its local, not too big, not too small, and offers a very wide range of classes to incoming students of all standings. I enjoyed their Holistic Health programs, which were fun to take while I was earning my AA in Math and Science in my path to PreMed. I would happily go to this school again for its ease of enrollment, and its close proximity--but I would change a few things too. Their parking is horrible, expect and accept that and life will become much easier. Though i live 5 minutes away, I often leave the house up to half an hour early so I can park down the road and walk to my classes. Thankfully, the college is located in a nice area, and I haven't had to worry about an extra 10 or 15 minute walk. I would also strongly encourage any student who is planning to transfer like I am: TALK TO THE TRANSFER CENTER ON CAMPUS! But like Regan says, "Trust but verify". They the councilors will lead many astray; do your own research. Talking to them is helpful, but do not rely on them to get to your dream college.
Ventura Community College is a great college that allows student to be able to commute and afford tuition given to many of its programs such as the Ventura College Promise and the BOG fee waiver which help low income students from all races and backgrounds to work and continue with their education without the worry of not being able to afford their tuition. Ventura College also offers counseling, tuition and guidance help through programs such as EOPS which also helps students with staying on track of their classes and offering early resgistration.
