Yes I had to take classes online but in my opinion it was way better considering that I am a very shy person. If i had a choice I would honestly keep my classes online, not only for my safety but I feel like I wouldn’t be as stressed.
Yvcc is a great school that is close to home. They have serval programs to get people right on track and set on to there future careers. I would totally recommend yvcc to anyone who is looking to go to a community college.
Most of the professors were amazing! They were helpful and answered questions when asked. I have not had any professors who were rude or unhelpful. Some courses were difficult but it would have been better in person than online but due to COVID all classes are online. Most online classes are good but being in person is a better experience.
It would be more helpful if the advisors were more helpful and if there were more programs. It may have been difficult because of COVID but overall it was a good experience.
My experience has been very good here at Yakima Valley College. The opportunities they offer are very wide and allow you to get a taste of everything if you are unsure about the field you are planning on going into.
In the spring of 2020, we were hit with a pandemic unexpectedly and people had to work online and get their education through virtual learning. Instructors at Yakima Valley College did not foresee this coming and they were able to adapt to the new change within weeks. The online classes were the same as if we were in a classroom because there were times where we could meet as a class through zoom and have time to interact with one another. The instructors from the courses I took were also attentive about responding to student's emails and answering questions on material that students didn't understand. I found it helpful that classes were online because I was working full-time and was having to drop to part-time due to my classes interfering with my work schedule. But because of covid teachers were very understanding and were willing to work with student's schedules and were very helpful with homework due dates. I saw it as the instructors wanting their students to succeed.
My experience at Yakima Valley College so far has been the best. Whenever I have a question in regards to paperwork or a certain program within the school, the staff is quick at giving me direction. The instructors that I've had also have been very helpful when it comes to answering student questions or when I would email them in regards to material clarification. The staff at the college want students to succeed and follow the correct career path. The advisors at the college are super helpful when it comes to guiding a student to success. I recently was not accepted into the Nursing program but the advisor mentioned to me in that same email that the college was starting an PN program if I was interested to email them back as soon as possible. The advisor was very informative in a timely manner that gave me the opportunity to enter the career path that I wanted. The staff at the college make the environment friendly and a warm welcome to new students that come into the area.
Overall, my YVC experience has gone well. There defiantly are some professors that I have had issues with in the past, but that's not to say they were bad teachers at all. I think that YVCdoes a good job of including running start students as well, which is pretty important to me.
YVC very much knows what they are doing when it comes to an online course. I've only felt overworked a few times online, but that was nothing compared to the in-person classes. I think that they have done a great job trying to adjust when it comes to the corona virus, and the professors have done a good job in this way.
With COVID I didn't expect too much, but I felt a lot of teachers were just as confused as us. I didn't learn the way I would have liked.
I liked the staff in this college, they really strive for academic achievement, they push and challenge each of their students to do and be their best. you're not only attending the class and listening but you really feel like your learning and receiving what the professor is teaching.
I did take online classes and I felt like I was very successful. you really feel like you have the support of the professor even though you don't have one on one time with them physically. They really tried to help in any way they could, they were only an email away and replied promptly which is appreciated.
I took several online courses during my time at YVC. Some of the classes were relatively easy while others were harder. I learned a lot in all of my classes, and my thinking was stretched. We used Canvas, and they set it up in ways that were easy to understand and follow. It was also easy to get into contact with my professors.
By far the best school I’ve ever went to. The professors care so much about the students education. There are so many helpful workers on campus, the counselors guide you to the right direction. I definitely recommend this school.
YVCC makes the work manageable online. Being a full time student taking 3 classes, I was afraid of online classes, but YVCC makes online completely manageable
Did my Running Start schooling here. Overall I felt it prepared me for when I transfer to 4-year University. However, their food selection on campus is limited. You'll probably have to bring food from home to have lunch without breaking the bank.
It's more responsibility on the student to get work done in the class. Though it should be expected. However, due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, not all teachers were familiar or prepared to do online classes. As a result some classes where not at the level they would have been if they were on campus.
