West Valley College Reviews
West Valley has a lit of resources for academics. The teachers and faculty are also very caring and helpful. Everyone’s also really nice there. Campus is nice and full of nature, spread out! Sports is a big thing at our school. You se sports players everywhere! I love this school because of the faculty and students, everyone’s nice and not really judgmental, everyone take to you and people are willing to help. Food is average, good. Breakfast burritos are delicious. I’m glad I picked this community college! Best choice ever. Feels like I belong here, second home.
This school is great! The campus is beautiful, the wide variety of online classes helps me out so much with my work schedule as well. The cafeteria also has great, affordable food. The teachers are super helpful and are great communicators and also very knowledgeable. They are always willing to help and answer any questions. Overall, the school is great, the counselors that I've gone to have all been different, but they all provide excellent guidance and are extremely patient and helpful. I can tell they love what they do. Even when there is no class for me, it's a really nice campus to hangout and relax during gaps.
I loved my years at WVC! It was the best choice I made going straight after high school. The professors and counselors there are all very genuinely invested in helping their students. Also, the food from the campus center is amazing! Not to mention the campus is like 5 minutes away from a really good plaza that offers an array of different food places.
