    The sun always greets Diablo Valley College without fail in the morning, with a biting cold that dissipates quickly by 11. The students are typically quiet, coming to class on time, doing the expected amount of work, and leaving without much to say. Teachers tell us what they expect from us, when they expect things to be done, and give us a too bad, so sad if we're unable to deliver, pretty much what is expected from attending a community college.

    Diablo Valley College is one of the best environments I've had the opportunity to study at. Students from all across the Bay Area come to attend this campus and all of these students are eager and willing to learn. From the two years I have attended this college, all of my classes have been fantastic and everyone of my professors has been excellent.

    DVC has great academic programs. Their wide range of class choices gives you the opportunity to explore what you want as a major and figure out what you truly enjoy studying. The campus is fairly small, so it's easy to navigate and become familiar with.

    DVC is a great school with a huge variety of classes, great professors, small class sizes and a diverse student body. There are so many opportunities to take courses that interest you. The campus is large for a community college so parking can be difficult at the beginning of the semester.

    There are lots of professors who have professional experience in their field. Class sizes are relatively small. Taking PE classes is a fantastic substitute for going to the gym.

    Incredibly diverse with national and international students. Wonderful counselors with loads of experience and willingness to help. Plenty of highly qualified instructors who sometimes teach simultaneously at another 4 year university and DVC.

    At DVC you get the experience and education of a university for the price of a community college. Staffed with wonderful, highly educated professors who are passionate about the subjects they teach you won't regret attending this college.

    Diablo Valley College professors strive to educate their students and help them improve their lives. I have not encountered a single professor who does not try to engage their students. The only problem with the school is that many of the students are not invested in the school or their education.

    DVC provided a good way to get general education requirements out of the way. It was good at first but now the school seems a little too crowded. I am glad that I was able to get stuff done over there and over with.

    Diablo Valley College holds a reputation that puts it ahead from any other community college in the area. Last year 23 students from DVC transferred to Haas School of Business at UC-Berkeley, ranked # 7 in US.
