 panda  Panda (Gerardo) I chose DVC because it was the first college I found success in. The freedom and benefits this place provides is astonishing, from financial aid and brown bag workshops, to ICC and ASDVC; if your major is represented here, you will find the resources to succeed! My major is Computer Engineering, but I enjoy learning anything. The students here come from all over the world, and are some of the best individuals I have met in my life, and I take pride in helping them as they help me. If there is anything you need, don’t hesitate to ask!
Kaitlin Dey  Kaitlin  I am a sociology major, and I am very active on campus. I’m involved in multiple clubs, as well as our student government, ASDVC. My passions are to cultivate diverse and inclusive communities. DVC has an incredible amount of resources for its students. I’m so glad to have the opportunity to help create a space for community and activism in the multicultural center. 
neeraj Neeraj Attending one of the best community colleges in California is definitely a special feeling. I have spent two semesters here, and every day when I walk into the campus, there's always a new activity or event taking place on campus! Also, I have seen the college make essential improvements on a timely manner to enhance the student and faculty experience! About me, I am pursuing Mechanical Engineering as my major, and am planning to transfer to a reputed research university and I am confident that DVC is the best first step to reach that goal!
