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.
My experience at YVCC has been pretty great overall. I have been a running start student for over a year and the academics are way more suitable for me than high school.

Running Start: Definitely, do it if you're either advanced because this will give you a chance to actually earn college credits for free while you're still in high school.

College: If you're in the area, I would highly recommend getting a degree here even if you are planning on going to a 4-year because you can save money and time by getting a transfer-DTA degree.
