Campus Scenes | Fall 2023

In this edition of “Campus Scenes,” you’ll enjoy a journey through a variety of images of life at Yakima Valley College’s campuses and learning centers. Above, students participating in YVC’s College Assistance Migrant Program participate in a CAMP Bootcamp in September 2023 to help new students transition into the college environment and introduce them to resources and services available at the college to support their academic and personal success. If you take a photo of an event or activity at YVC that you’d like to submit for consideration in a future “Campus Scenes” gallery, please email
