What Students Are Saying

2.91 Average Rating
i feel as if kalamazoo valley community college is actually a great college to attend. it is this way because unlike universities, the teachers are more direct and into helping their students. personally, i find the teachers at a community college like this more approachable and valuable than someone that is a higher university teacher, because when i dual enrolled at a university, the teachers weren't very personable with their students.

This college has been a very good transition for my life. It is a small intimate campus that allows me to get the personal attention I need for academic success.
