"Los Angeles Valley College is an incredible institution. In high school, I was a mediocre student who graduated with no sense of direction. Now, thanks to the amazing opportunities and resources I discovered while attending this school, I will be the first in my family to graduate from college this Spring, and will be transferring this fall to a university."

"The journalism department is my favorite aspect of Valley College. The professors are passionate and the life lessons learned in this program cannot be learned elsewhere. I have made some great memories being a part of the Valley Star."
