    Decent-sized campus with a friendly community. The classes aren't too hard, so it should be pretty easy to maintain a good GPA here. There are also lots of resources to help you with transferring to 4-year universities.

    It's a great school to go to when you want to stay at home because you need to save money. They give out great grants, and also the financial aid office and the other offices are really helpful- they actually care about what the students are doing and how they are going to reach the next step in their academic career. All the teachers I've had are really nice and want to help you succeed!

    This is by far the best school I could have chosen. Beautiful campus, amazing professors, and an abundance of opportunities. I would 100% recommend DVC if you're looking for a community college.

    Located in the prosperous city of Pleasant Hill, Diablo Valley College is a school with the most up to date resources and facilities. The campus itself is beautiful, while the classes are spotless with teachers that are not only extremely willing to work with you but not afraid to give you a tough dose of reality.

    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.
