West Valley College Reviews
West Valley College has such a beautiful campus! Most teachers are helpful. the variety of majors is awesome! More than most other community colleges. The math resource center and tutoring center are great resources for help. Parking is easy if you have morning classes, more difficult if you have mid morning/noon classes, but after the first few weeks parking is easy to find throughout the day. The campus is clean, friendly, and safe.
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.
