This is my second semester attending LAVC andBrightCriminal
This is my second semester attending LAVC and I?ve hated it. I was previously enrolled at LACC which is where I completed 90% of my classes but I needed a class that LACC didn't offer during the season so I had to take it at the nearest college and they made me switch home schools in order to get my financial aid. It?s been ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE. It seems like everytime the semester start they take their precious time with the disbursements and then they always try to take ext money. They don't take academic status into consideration it's basically like they don't care. Counselor office is hard to get an appointment with so if anything does go wrong it takes weeks to see a counselor and then EXTRA WEEKS for the to fix the issue

This school sucks, you can't get any helpBright
This school sucks, you can't get any help from anyone. If you try to call for help, you are either on hold for more than an hour, or you go straight to VM. And don't bother leaving a message because no one will return your call. And don't bother sending an email (I tried department heads, administrators, even the president's office.) You will be ignored. And don't waste your time even trying to get in front of someone and seek help, because you are just in the way. How dare you need assistance, you just graduated from high school... you're an adult now, so figure it out on your own is the attitude. You are all alone in a school that could care less whether or not you are successful at their instution. You are just another another cow on the slaughter house floor in this 8-2 M-TH, closed on Friday joke of a school.

This school sucks, plan and simple.Quite BrightComputer Engineering
This school sucks, plan and simple. Most of the student body are foreigners and act like they are still in their home countries. This school has no culture at all. Do yourself a favor and go elsewhere. This is the most boring school ever.

Everyone avoid eye contact in the halls. Its not your gang infested neighborhood people, stop walking with your heads down on campus.
