Am learning a lot
Since West Valley has such a supportive and helpful staff, it is very easy for me to learn alot of new things so that I may get my degree faster and easier. It also helps me complete what I couldn't quite understand in high school.

I do enjoy being at West Valley. It is quite a car ride to get there, but I do like being here.
Bang for the buck
It is alot cheaper than an university. I highly recommend going to West Valley.

Am learning a lot
I was accepted to San Jose State University and then kicked out because I did not make the payment deadline for orientation. I am now in my second year at West Valley and I love it. The teachers are amazing and love what they are doing. All of my classes have been very interesting and I am better learning in smaller classes, which West Valley offers.
Am enjoying being here
I enjoy being at West Valley. The campus is beautiful and there are so many people who want to make friends. Teachers are available on their off hours and there are almost always fun activities taking place around campus.
Bang for the buck
West Valley offers great prices, 36 dollars for a unit! It really is different from the University prices and is better to me!
Tips for prospective students
It is so easy to get classes, cheaper, and the teachers are amazing. I would strongly suggest that you come here to get your General Education requirements out of the way and save some money. I am so glad West Valley was near my house so I could attend here. The classes are easy to get into, the campus is beautiful, and the teachers are amazing. They are willing to help you on their off hours and love teaching. It makes it fun to be at school again.
Great for these types of students
It is great for students who don't yet know what University they want to attend and who want to live at home and save some money. West Valley is also great for students who just want to get their GE requirements out of the way for less money.
