IMPERIAL, Calif.—Imperial Valley College had a growth spurt in the last three years with a techno-new science building, expanded parking facilities, updated classrooms, and water-friendly landscaping.

I'm just a student in IVC looking forward to becoming a journalist, a cook, and a musician someday. I'm hoping to transfer to CSU San Marcos once i obtain the credits required and obtain my majors there, and hopefully a minor in the Culinary arts. I'm not really social, but i look forward to become social thorugh music and journalism, so far, it's working little by little. I love music, cooking, and writing, which explains my interest for school, and one day i want to make them into a career.

    Awesome job!
