Evergreen Valley College
I like Evergreen Valley College for three reasons. For one thing, it has a good child care center. This is very important to me. I am a young mother with a two year old daughter, and the child care center gives me the freedom to take one or two classes a semester. In addition, it is easy to get to campus by bus because the bus stop is only a block away. My car is old, and it is not always reliable. If I have car trouble, I have another way to get to school. Finally, the school is a friendly place. Most students do not know each other at the beginning of a semester, but they have many opportunities to become acquainted through school clubs, sports, and group work in class. The teachers are also very friendly and usually have good sense of humor. It means a lot to me to have such a good school in my neighborhood.
