I love LAVC because of the professors, staff, and faculty. They have shown me that no what don't give up and keep on trying.
Felita from Pacoima, CA
I really like this college and its instructors, they work hard to teach quality education in this campus. Its location is very convenient, there's the orange metro line next to it. Also, there's a variety of food stores around.
