Overall Rating

I have been attended Irvine Valley College 2 years and going for the 3rd year as part-time student. I like the school because most of the faculty I met are knowledgeable and they teach with their passion. When I visit them during their office hours, they are always welcome and helpful. Especially Sarah Bereiter in writing class. She opens her door to every student, and offers above and beyond help we need to achieve our academic goal. Additionally they have a great system for transferring. So this is the way to get in Universities without perfect SAT if you possessed study ethic and were willing to work hard toward your academic goal. Overall, the school has been providing greater education for my academic goal even I am not fresh out of high school.
