Detailed Ratings

I liked how the college is close to my home. The help and support I receive from the TRIO program they have at Yavapai collage has helped me stay above average in grades. This college offered a class in nutritional choices from a great teacher, that taught us the choices to make to stay alive longer by eating right, and losing weight, dropping the risk of diabetes.
