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!
My experience at West Valley has been remarkable. From the caring professors to the AMAZING breakfast burrito's, West Valley is the perfect college to help with transfer to a 4-year university. They offer a wide variety of classes, clubs, campus activities, office hours, and tutoring center, student health center, counseling, and many other attributions. Not only the the campus ranked #1 for community colleges in California for being the most beautiful campus, but the nature of the campus is so calming and delightful.
Classes at West Valley are great! Reasonable class sizes, but I dislike that classes can get cancelled with low enrollment. The professors are awesome and teach very well.
