Am learning a lot
This school has a very student oriented program, they have great teachers and excellent tutors that are willing to help each student to better there learning experience. The teachers do exactly what they say that are going to do in the classes and they are competent and teach very well in there field of teaching.
Am enjoying being here
Yes I enjoy this school, it is in a nice interesting town, and the weather is nice and mild most of the time. The campus is very nice and maintained and this school offers a variety of classes to get a student started on their new life as a student and looking for a job.
Bang for the buck
For the cost of tuition the school is great, this school is cheap but it's teachers still teach great and the student resources are very good.
Tips for prospective students
I would say that if you are intorested in this school than go for it, do your best and you will do great. This school is set up so that if the student works at it they will achieve and pass the courses that the student is in. The biggest thing in this school is don't get behind and do all of your home work, this will keep you on the times and the home work is a very large portion of the students grade.
Great for these types of students
This school is great for all types of students, the school has a wide variety of classes and it will transfer to many different Colleges or universities for the student to further their education.

In three sentences
Yavapai College offers a very good array of selection of class choices for just about any field of interest. When the college had its' renovation, it made it so easy to access one building and room for registration, advising, cashier, and financial aid where one stop does it all. My experiences with staff and teachers has all been so positive. The warm and professional manner make it so inviting to go here.
Tips for prospective students
I would recommend anyone looking to attend Yavapai College, to view the campus and meet some of the different people here. Look at all course selections of those you would be likely to take to see if they are offered where and when it would work for you. Keep in mind classes can have several options, whether in the classroom, online, at a different campus nearby, or a little of all. If you are considering transferring to a university, be sure to know what classes are required so you can plan your classes at YCC accordingly. After all this is established, I highly recommend getting registered for classes asap, as they fill up fast and many are full a month before start date.
Academic Rigor
I have personally experienced the high standards that the staff have required and demonstrated here. When I was in an EDU class and a MATH class, I was challenged and astounded at the delivery in the classroom of the content, knowledge and the expectations that they put on us. Anyone attending here will be more than qualified in their profession and more than ready for the university.
Dorm Life
This was not a need for me however, I do know someone personally that is in a dorm at present and is so pleased as he is able to be right there on the campus allowing him to come and go to class, library, cafeteria and whatever else he needs. He has excelled in his studies as a result.
Food and Dining
Yes, the food is excellent and very affordable. I encourage anyone to eat there. In fact once when I was at lunch there I saw offer for a scholarship sitting on the table. I applied and was approved within days!
What to do for fun
I encourage the seeker to research activities through the college, parks and recreation, and browse other links about activities in Prescott as well. Many free events or very low cost.There are hiking and biking groups, plays, many performances at the town square, weather permitting that are free and biking or walking distance. No matter, there is more than enough to fill up one's schedule for fun.
Bang for the buck
Prescott enjoys clean air, many community events, and all the 4 seasons. It is the Christmas capitol of the state, and locals enjoy the annual event of the lighting of the Courthouse where the Christmas story is told and Christmas songs enjoyed. People here have the small town feel with advantages of small city as well. There is so much history that one can walk and view buildings, read different posted readings in many places down town. Most things in Prescott can be within walking distance or biking if one is in heart of Prescott. Makes it the perfect college town for sure.
Great for these types of students
YCC is got a very good relaxed and clean feel to it. With it offering just about any class one could think of, all types of students feel right at home with its' clean, professional, small town feel, with the highest of standards of excellence of education, everyone feels at home here. Arizona has many things to go and see if you want to travel for an hour or two, sites including the Grand Canyon can be a great way to recreate.
Campus Safety
Prescott already enjoys a very low status of crime, and at the campus it is no different. I have personally felt very comfortable walking even at night to a performance at the hall or special event. We enjoy the security of a very well staffed police, sheriff, and highway patrol to the point you actually see people walking around in the evening unlike you may find in the large cities.

I am not from Arizona and people seem ruder here than where I am from.
Bang for the buck
Very cheap, love it!
Tips for prospective students
Register for classes early, especially for medical type classes.
Great for these types of students
Most classes/ teachers overall are very easy. A B should be pretty easy for even a slacker to pull off.
