Unlike the university student who attends on-campus lectures, films and concerts as routinely as he attends classes, the Valley student has little or no time to indulge in such aesthetic "niceties." But just as a realistic computation of an average age is limited to rough approximations, determining the predominant gender of Valley students is subject to relative generalities. Statistics, however, clearly indicate that the proportion of women students is rapidly increasing. There is a change . . . women are coming to school. ln keeping with a national trend, women at Valley now constitute a whopping 41 percent of the student body, contrasted to a mere 25 percent just six years ago. "Susie Homemaker" has suddenly gone academic. Majoring in home economics and child care development was fine for Betty White, but chemistry, math, engineering, even electronics, are better. Prof. Locks, one of the few teachers who have been at Valley since its opening, spends most of his time counseling and teaching. But equally as impressive was the interim transformation of senior citizens into participating students. After a 30-to-40-year absence, retired men and women are flocking to the college for what Harry Morrison, 72-year-old history major, terms a "vitality booster." Freed of time and monetary restrictions, the Ben Gay crowd have turned in their heating pads and rocking chairs for black- boards, slide rules, and textbooks. A "tried-and-true" cure-all for individuals disenchanted with the monotonous "joys" of retire- ment living, enthusiasts say, Valley serves to retard senility. "The brain is a muscle," chirps 68-year-old art student Beth Goldman, "You don't use it, and it dies." A former nurse, Mrs. Goldman loathes TV game shows, morbid people, and ortho- pedic shoes. She has found, however, that the intellectual activity as a student at Valley now heightens and revitalizes her life. But whether a student is coming back or going to college for the first, second, or third time, one is impressed by the compatible blend of old and new faces. After counseling, graduating, training and transferring some students, Valley, in its 25 year life span, has gained long standing recognition for its ability to rejuvenate the old, re-idealize the cynical, and stimulate the unmotivated. Whether the individual sets his sights on an A.A. degree, an occupational certificate, or transfer or terminal work, the certainty of receiving the best possible education at the least possible cost is a guarantee offered to any student interested in the taking. So a quarter of a century later, Valley College, which began as nothing more than a disheveled network of ruffrock shanties, has mushroomed from infinitesimal insignificance to ranking predominance as an institution geared to helping people of all varieties to utilize and' develop their talents to the fullest degree. 7

V . . . .-- - li . ' This farmland is where Valley College was built. No one knew at the tlme that someday these grounds would become an educational center. Dr. Robert Horton, fourth president in the history of Valley College, will be leading the college in a salute to Valley's 25th anniversary. ufiiaui Q something. You're expected to ask questions. If they don't have the feed back, how else can they know if you're learning?" Located in the suburban midst of L.A. County, Valley is large by any standard of measurement, and after 25 years the college remains a standing butress of relaxed sophistication in a maze of technological rush. As statistics supplied by the office of educational develop- ment reveal, the Valley College transfer student is inclined to do better than the high school student who went directly to the university. This is of special benefit to the high-caliber student who cannot afford the ever-rising cost of the four-year schools. By attending the community college he may obtain the equiva- lent or superior education while at the same time cutting costs in half. Also running in favor of the community college is the fact that it provides a better chance for psychological adjustment during a time of emotional uncertainty reflected in national figures that show suicide to be the number one killer of college students. While the community college and university students face identical pressures for achieving success, one underlining differ- ence separates the two groups-that of attitude. Shortly after making the adjustment from one system to another, the transfer student is thrown into a state of limbo. ln opposition to the larger institutions in which a student suffers from a gnawing sense of alienation, the Valley student is accustomed to making and maintaining ties preserved long after leaving. At Valley, professors, rather than teaching assistants, con- tinue to instruct classes in which students are known and addressed by name. Student-teacher contact is a serious formality that escapes sacrifice in even the largest of classes. The Valley student does not lead a campus oriented life style. As available statistics reveal, the average Valley student is

Cesar Chavez, leader of the United Farm Workers, Valley's MECHA members, and farmworkers, rallied together at a picket line in San Fernando. eebs F bange By Marc Littman Illustrated byAparicio Gil The seeds of change planted in the throes of last lune's tumultuous A.S. government elections took root and bore fruit in the form of positive accomplishment last fall. Dominated by a viable contingent of minority students headed by lo Anne Orijel, the new council quickly asserted itself and appropriated S9O,220, the third largest allocation of student funds in Valley College history, for the construction of the Recreation Room. David Churchill, the catalyst behind the project despite his own physical limitations, later surfaced in the political arena before the Los Angeles Community College Board of Trustees, and in a bitter harrangue convinced the board to repeal a ban on campus cigarette sales. Indeed, the semester was saturated with fervent rhetoric as Churchill's fellow council members shed their stilted insulation and reacted with partisan sentiments to the pressing issues outside the college including the Mideast War, Gov. Reagan's tax limitation initiative, the energy crisis, impeachment, the struggle of the United Farm Workers, and teacher collective bargaining rights. Frustrated in an earlier bid, Orijel and her fellow council cohorts from MECHA and the B.S.U. mounted a successful drive to secure Bobby Seale, the co-founder of the Black Panther Party, as part of their November Campus Speaker Series. Bobby Seale, co-founder ol the Black Panthers, spoke before the largest student turnout ofthe year in Valley's Free Speech Area. 1 cr ,g New-J X " i Q T mvf T.,:f"-1.-Ive
