At West Valley, you can be a full-time student while working! The professors I've had are all amazing people and teachers, and they all have a passion for their respective subjects. This campus has the ultimate diversity, as it has not only every race and gender, but the students are also a variety of ages. And, you save a TON of money while getting the same undergraduate education courses you would at a University!

I've had a great experience with West Valley. Every professor and administrator has been amazing to work with, and they've made it very easy for me as a new student to navigate everything. The counselors helped me pick the right classes and understand my course of study. The financial aide department has been excellent in answering all of my questions and showing me the aid thats available to me. And all of my professors have been knowledgeable and inspiring. All of my classes are either online or in the design building on campus. The building is brand new, and everything is beautiful. The online system, Canvas, is clean and easy to navigate. I love it!
I really like West Valley college. I think they could use a little remodeling and upgrading. They have a beautiful atmosphere and it is very naturistic. I enjoy the walk between classes and the fresh air. Nice change to being inside a room most of the time. The teachers are very knowledgeable and are helpful. The online system took me a while to get used to, but once you get the hang of it, it's a breeze!
