To some, Valencia is an opportunity to grow academically, but to others it’s a place to relax and explore the academic world without any pressure from fellow classmates and professors. Valencia Community College is open to the overachievers and to the slackers. Most students remain at Valencia well beyond the two years required to complete the associate degree.
Valencia Community College is a small academic community that takes great pride in its students. It has well over 100 clubs and extracurricular activities. Many nationalities and ethnic groups are represented on campus. Furthermore, Valencia spares no expense; the school brings in speakers, philanthropists, and experts in various fields year-round to discuss various topics with students.
For those who are concerned about their environment, the school has great security on campus. Police are present, aware, and ready to help. Valencia will help you every step of the way, from enrollment to graduation and beyond. On any given day, you will hear of and see alums walking the many Valencia campuses, talking to current students about life beyond college. Valencia is truly a great place to start.
My academic experience at Valencia has been a good one. They offer many different types of classes and the professors are very helpful and want you to succeed. Class registration is done on line and is very simple.
The academic flexibility at Valencia College is very impressive. It is very convenient and my experience at Valencia College has been a good one.
The campus facilities are okay. The buildings are in okay shape, the library is pretty big; however, it can be loud sometimes as people tend to meet up for study groups, group projects or just want to chat or talk on the phone with someone. The library offers study rooms which can be rented for 2 hours (there's only about 5 of them upstairs). The people in the library are alright, some are helpful, others may not be (but I'm referring to those who work to check books out and such). They have alright coffee shop in 2 locations (By building 1 and building 5 in the cafe); however, the prices range just as those of Starbucks (and Starbucks is a lot better). The gym is unfortunately not free even for students. The only places that you may allowed in are in the tennis courts, racquetball room and track in the 2nd floor IF classes are not in session. Otherwise, students have to pay a fee every semester for them to utilize the gym. The campus is pretty compact when you get the hang of it. Parking is pretty bad if you don't get there a good half an hour before class starts. Campus activities are found every Tuesday and Thursday from 11am to 2pm
I've never really been inside the Career Center, but I know and heard it's pretty good because they can help you find a job or even help out with your interviews and resumes. Alumni Network I'm not sure of either because I've recently become an Alumni and have not looked into its network. Job prospects may vary but seeing how I've taken 60+ credits at the school including the CGS2100 course which provided me the help with computer knowledge in Microsoft Office, I'm sure I can find some job some time soon.
Mostly, Valencia at East Campus have students who want an easy grade and think they're in high school. There a good amount of students, though, who are engaging in classrooms, work hard, and want to learn. I feel that in most classes, you either become friends with people in the classroom right away or you don't. Many of the students seem pretty liberal with a good amount who are conservative. There are many bisexuals and few gay people at the school; most are hetersexual. Majority of the students are attending the school through loans, some through scholarships. I've seen a small group of Asians, lot of Hispanic, White and Black students, and a lot of people from different countries too who are really interesting to meet.
