I have taken a few online classes through Yavapai College and every single class I have had the most helpful teachers. I also applied for the Radiology Tech program but, unfortunately, I did not get into it. Nevertheless, I had a really good experience and was able to meet with the Program Director, Richard LeClair, to review my interview scores. My favorite teacher throughout my Yavapai College experience is Matt Pearcy. I took his class for General Biology 1 and Human Anatomy and Physiology 1. He was so patient with our class and has such a passion for biology that he makes it fun to learn! If there was one thing I could change about Yavapai College, it would be the amount of students they accept into their Radiologic Technology program.

Yavapai college is where i found my true passion to help others! Being so involved on campus I was able to make connections with faculty and staff to turn to for any situation I may be stuck in or need assistance with. Yavapai college had some great instructors. They made learning fun and interesting. They always offered support and extra help to their students. YC and Prescott is my home away from home and im truly sad to be leaving as I continue my education at ACU, but I know I can count on YC to have my back through this journey!
I have been at Yavapai for 5 semesters now. It has been nice because you go and do what you have to do and you leave. Most teachers are great, and they are very helpful. I have taken many online classes and I find those to be very convenient because I work, but I noticed that I actually learned a lot! I will be starting the nursing program in the spring. The nursing program has a great reputation in Arizona, and it's one of the best!
