Diablo Valley College

Dear Ms. Walters,

I am writing this letter to express my sincere gratitude to you and your fellow associates for the excellent educational environment you have created at DVC. My son, Thomas Laursen, attended DVC in 2006/7 and 2008/9 with a personal goal of acceptance into the Haas Business School at UC Berkeley. He researched all of the requirements well in advance including courses, grades, and community involvement and found the opportunities he needed at DVC. He also encountered a very supportive staff of teachers and counselors to assist him during his attendance.

I am proud to say that Thomas has been accepted at Haas, and has already completed their required summer courses with high marks. He’s living on College Avenue within walking distance from campus and very excited about the educational journey ahead. As his Dad, I couldn’t be more proud of his accomplishment and grateful for all of your support.
