I am a transfer student from Utah attending Wenatchee Valley College in order to play basketball and pursue a degree in Nursing. The education at WVC by my experience has been pretty good. The teachers seem invested for the most part, and they do a great job of involving the community in support of our education. There are many opportunities to serve and participate with those who have similar interests and skills. It is relatively cheap, and I believe the faculty has the success of it's extremely diverse student body as it's first priority. I would like to see the hours of operation and availability changed. The office and staff and library and various other facilities don't stay open for very long, which at times can be an inconvenience. Additionally, It's software and ease of online use could be improved. Payment plans and financial aid accessibility and tracking should all be available online and should be easier to navigate.

There is so much diversity, in the students, professors, and teaching methods. To me, this makes everyday something new and fun!
Being a smaller school the professor are a lot more willing to work with you and are very personable. It's a campus where it is easy to make friends and run into familiar faces so you are never really alone. Here we have a campus ministry called Connect that meet every Thursday at 7 p.m. and it's a great way to find some roots here in the valley. Sports are very popular among the students, during most games the student section is packed with people who are there to have a good time and are very friendly. Another nice thing about this campus is you see the variety in weather: rain, sun, fall colors, and snow so it's a great place to figure out what kind of place you would like to live in the future.
