Students nowadays face many challenges when it comes to obtaining a college education. We evaluate an institution’s quality based on what we need the most. The qualities sought out may vary by each person’s personal point of view. However, as a student, I’ve found that most students seek for an institute that benefits them the most. Attending a community college has been an enormous advantage towards my education. I have been attending San Bernardino Valley College for the last two semesters. I have come to respect their philosophies and values. The institution has now been in business for 87 years. They venture to encourage both students and faculty towards high standards of achievement and progress into exceptional members of the society. They now offer a variety of degrees, transfer programs and certificates for a wide range of students. San Bernardino Valley College has an accomplished staff, student support services and technological tools that pave the road towards the conquest of a quality education.
My Philosophy of the Community College Community college is a great institution for students to start their educational journey. Especially when they do not have the funds or lack some of the prerequisite that a university would require. Community college was created to serve the community, traditional and non-traditional students with the best higher education and lifetime learning opportunities. The faculty and staff members at a community college is there to provide leadership in education while going above and beyond to recognize the needs of the students and the community by providing excellent educational programs and support services that are available to all who have the opportunity to take advantage of them. “Student services now include recruitment and retention, counseling, student activities, student health, financial aid, academic support, career centers, transfer centers, and supplemental services such as transportation, child care, and services tailored for specific populations of students” (Cohen, Brawer, & Krisker, 2014, pg. 209). My philosophy in fulfilling the role and mission of the community college, is to establish the mission, vision, goals and values to guide all students on their journey to strive to become successful both in school and in today’s economy.
Students are given a variety of options to help them work toward an AA degree. Employees are given the opportunity to help change a person’s life on a daily basis by helping the students’ progress to a higher education. Employees are also given healthcare benefits, a pension, and paid vacation. With this job, every holiday is paid for and the employee gets two week off for winter break paid. An employee is given vacation time, sick leave and personal leave as soon as they start working. Each fiscal year, the time not used is carried over and more time is added. While HCC does have amazing benefits, it is the primary goal to boost enrollment and continue to strive for excellent services to the students
It seems that this day and age, college is becoming a very crucial part of today's society. Without college it is very difficult to get a job in a field that you want to be in, but at the same time it is difficult for people without a degree to maintain their job. This is why it is very important for a person to complete college. Hutchinson Community College, like many other colleges, is working to prepare their students for life after they have graduated. Although there are many ways to improve a college to make people want to stay and finish their degree, the college should be aware of the students’ desire to finish the degree before they are accepted.

Being a Bunker Hill Community College student is not that easy unless you are associated with all the useful and valuable sources provided all over the school. As I seamlessly move from my high school experiences into a two-year college at Bunker Hill, I was so anxious to explore new things in the new college world. After I come to this college, I found that this college has many friendly and helpful resources that help me engaging myself in the new world.

This experience has provided me the opportunity to speak with CEOs, finance executives, CPAs, entrepreneurs, politicians, lawyers, and more that have spoken at club gatherings. I obtained valuable insight on the rewards and challenges of these careers, as well as priceless advice on the best route to success in all those professions and things to avoid doing. I was even able to gain tips about transitioning to the UC system from those who’ve graduated from a UC. I have also taken part in numerous trips to different University of California campuses and have met and received advice from transfer students from NVC. That advice ranges from services offered at their school’s transfer centers, managing the quarter system, how to prepare for finals week at the UC level and more. Taking advantage of resources such as these during my time at NVC has played an instrumental role in preparing me for my major and the rigors of the upper division courses that await me at the University of
