Ventura College has lots of opportunities for all different kinds of students. It’s easy to find classes that can fit your schedule even if it’s a busy one. I had two jobs and went to classes mainly at Ventura college; their partnership with the other community colleges in our county may have been the most beneficial for students who have diverse needs. The push for graduation is entirely self-propelled so your college experience here is whatever you put into it. These many different opportunities helped me figure out what I wanted to do with my life. Due to Ventura College, I was able to afford my own college and move out on my own. Even when times got a bit tough, there were services such as the food pantry, or the health services that were included in tuition that were a big help for my roommates and I. Use them and they will help you!

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.
I loved attending Ventura College. Many people primarily focus on the idea that a community college doesn't give you an opportunity to experience college student life, but to me, all that mattered was saving money all while getting an education. Ventura College for first year students offers the Ventura Promise, which covered all of my classes for my freshman year of college. Throughout the two years I spend here for my Associate's, all I ever paid for was books and supplies. Ventura College was the most economically friendly after high school and I can't be more grateful for the education it provided me.
