    West Valley is a smaller college in comparison to its neighbor, De Anza. However, the school is very well funded and thus offers tons of scholarships and financial aid. Overall the tuition and enrollment fees are not very outstanding either.

    Take Geology for your physical science courses. The camping trips are SO SO fun. Literally my favorite memory of my time here.

    I believe what you get for what you pay here is an exceptional deal. Some of the professors teach at 4-year universities, but the students get access to them for a 2-year price. The beauty of the campus is also a huge bonus.

    Solid education, and teachers are extremely memorable. A few expenses are not immediately recognizable such as the cafeteria expenses not covered in any cost calculator, but it is still well worth the expense.
