They dont help studentsSuper BrilliantBusiness - Management and Administration
They dont help students at all, they are seeing how to get money for the school but not to help student going to school, there's like 2 or 3 good faculty staff and the other are very unhelpfull and arrogant.

First off, Imperial Valley College is great forQuite BrightUndecided
First off, Imperial Valley College is great for getting an Associates and starting a small time career...has a good variety of classes, and is almost tantamount to that of a High School Campus, only two times larger.

More good things about the campus, the cost of attendance is not that high, tutoring services are available in the library [and the Disabled Student Services Program which I am enrolled in.] Financial picky pending your doesn't provide Federal Aid, but it does provide State aid. There is a transfer center to help you with transferring out of the college once the time is right [I might just go for a University Studies Associates, from there I can decide what I want to do with my life.] The cafeteria isn't all that good because most of the food it serves is high in all you would not want, too many energy drinks and pizza pockets, not many healthy options, JUST because the cafeteria is not owned by the college, it is its own entity.

Faculty are available up front or by email to talk with, so no matter who you are if you earn respect you will get it [which include the teachers], councilors will thoroughly help you with finding the right classes you need, ext...

As far as problems go, like I stated the cafeteria is a private business of its own, so things are not likely to change, also the extended campuses have started closing so I hope you don't live anywhere too far away from IVC Main Campus. I would NOT recommend transferring to San Diego State University because classes are dwindling and students are getting upset with it. I know I am getting off topic but SDCU is in cahoots with IVC...speaking of which, IVC doesn't have too many articulation agreements with other colleges, which could make things more difficult if you had a plan for a Masters degree or higher in some areas, and if your not careful theft could be a problem with a few problem students [they are in every college]but as long as you do not forget any of your things, you won't have to worry about that.

The atmosphere of the college makes it a great place to start out your college days, just try not to lose anything.My advice, this is supposed to be a campus with mainly ENGLISH, but Spanish seems to be dominant amongst the students, which is annoying for someone that cannot grasp a second language all that well, so if you don't speak Spanish, you may feel a bit out of place, and yes, they even speak Spanish in the English classes...what a pain.
