Close to home and not to expensive to attend
Construction was a nightmare.
I enjoyed the professors. They were very understanding and helpful to all of us and shared personal stories that encouraged students. They were very involved and tried to connect with students.
I did not like the lack of on-campus dining. There is stuff nearby so that's okay but time-consuming. I also did not like the way that counseling conducted itself. Unless you're in the transfer program, it is hard to get consistent counseling aid.
Overall it's a really good foundation for someone who is planning on transferring to University. There are multiple clubs and an honors program is great as well.
It can be very frustrating when classes get full very fast.
I enjoyed the small community feeling and the amount of money I saved. Given its smaller amount of students, I feel I was provided with more opportunity
I didn't like the food options and sometimes registering was a hassle
As a bio major at AVC, I recommend creating study groups with your classmates. There will be many professors who will not help you, so creating a tight-knit community with your classmates will be helpful. Attend SI sessions because nine times out of ten those students will have study guides. Make sure to frequent Rate My Professor.
If you were to go to the admin dean regarding a professor, don’t expect there to be any action when holding the Professor accountable if they’re tenure.
I attended AVC as a way to continue my education as a student who had very few options. I pay for 100% of my schooling, and can't rely on my parents for help. AVC offers a wide variety of financial and social aid for students like me. The staff is patient and understanding, and even on occasion, sources of wisdom you didn't think you needed. Many of my professors let me stay to ask any manner of question I wanted. Asking for help didn't feel like something to be ashamed of. I went from barely able to attend a college, to back to a driven person with goals for their future. If you are thinking of attending AVC, I highly recommend it.
Some of the teachers tried too hard to control their students. During two different classes, I had to remind my teacher that I'm an adult, and therefore will leave when I want and attend when I feel able. There isn't a whole lot of room to study on campus. The Library and Student Lounge fill up fast with other students as well as SOAR students.
