Am learning a lot
I am learning new subjects while reviewing old ones. I am able to understand better on some of the most difficult subjects, such as general physics and multivariable calculus.
Am enjoying being here
I enjoy attending Evergreen Valley College (EVC) because of its atmosphere and environment. Teachers and fellow students are there to help me whenever I have questions.
Bang for the buck
Despite the budget cuts that increase the tuition for continuing education, EVC is still less expensive than many other public and private universities. There is also financial aid available for eligible students.
Tips for prospective students
Even though EVC is a community college, prospective students must not waste time. With the budget cuts, lots of people are now applying to community colleges like EVC.
Great for these types of students
EVC is perfect for students who do not know what they want to major in, but are interested in continuing their educations.

It is a nice school. The campus is beautiful. The people are nice here.
Tips for prospective students
Don't be afraid to be yourself. Once you enter college, bullying doesn't exist anymore. Just work hard and ask the professor for help and you will succeed in college.
Academic Rigor
My professor is very nice and helpful.
Dorm Life
There is no dorm life. If you want to explore and live on your own, this is not the school for you. If you want to stay close to home and enjoy living with your family and don't want to move out for college, than this is the school for you.
Food and Dining
I eat from home.
What to do for fun
I just take a night class, but they have clubs at Evergreen that you can take.
Bang for the buck
Going to community college is a smart way to save a lot of money and debt to get an education. The only con is that the process of getting a bachelor's degree is longer.
Great for these types of students
Those who want to stay close to home and like living with their family. It is also great for those who want to get a college education, but can't financially afford to go to a four year university or there grades were not good enough for a four year university.
Campus Safety
It is safe. Nobody bothers me when I am waiting for my ride to pick me up at eight pm.
