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 love West Valley. The campus is beautiful. There are lots of trees, and they are always updating the campus. All the teachers are passionate and very thorough. There are always lots of activities and the student body is very involved. They even have really good food in the cafeteria. The breakfast burritos are amazing!
I love this school. The professors are amazing and they truly care about your success as a student and as an individual. I have never felt so secure in my education than I did at West Valley. The faculty, staff, and the President are absolutely fantastic and I am honored to have been a student at West Valley and I feel so much more confident going into San Jose State!
