Antelope Valley College
Antelope Valley College held its first classes on Sept. 10, 1929 as an extension of Antelope Valley Joint Union High School in Lancaster. Then known as Antelope Valley Junior College, the college was established by high school officials as a way to provide local residents with access to the first two years of a college education in what was then a remote, rural area.The average daily attendance at the college was 13 during the 1929-30 school year. The stock market crash in October 1929 and subsequent Great Depression led to challenging times for the new college.Alfalfa farmers in the area were hard hit by the Great Depression. The college suffered serious financial difficulties as teachers took pay cuts to keep the tiny college viable.
The Antelope Valley College is a Public university located in Lancaster.
The Antelope Valley College was founded in 1929.
The current president of Antelope Valley College is Ed Knudson.
