Yakima Valley College Reviews
Yakima Valley College (YVC) can be described in one word, convenient. First, it's close to my house therefore gas money, housing, and food is not an issue. Second, the class sizes are small compared to universities. it' much easier to get a hold of the professors because they don't have a hundred students trying to contact them. Third, the buildings are not too far from each other. It's convenient especially when passing time is only 10 minutes. Finally, YVC has a diverse community. From various age to different races, YVC is full of students and faculties who come from countless backgrounds.
My experience was great, with a lot of great professors who give you a lot of one on one time if needed. Also the recourses are amazing! The writing center and math center helped a lot! There are tutors in both and in the library as well which have your books you need for cheap! Campus is small which helps with getting where you need to go!
I enjoy coming here because it is in my hometown -- nearby -- and it is affordable with my financial aid. The degrees offered here are mostly two year degrees, and there are a few four year degrees offered, too, depending on what you are going for. But be aware that if you can't get a four year degree with your field of study, you would end up having to go elsewhere. So I consider myself lucky that the Bachelor's (four year degree) I am going for is here at YVC. The place is very diverse sex, religion (including those that don't follow a denomination), sexualities, culture, etc.
