I am a dual enrollment student at Valencia College and I think that it is a good school. I've been on campus several times and it's always lively. I'm unaware of any sports, greek life, etc, but the events they have make up for it. As for the academics, I think it's fine. I don't think it's as challenging as it is supposed to be, but it's not easy (depending on the class). Overall, it's a good school to start off with then move on to a university.
I can confidently say that the college's environment is absolutely amazing. The campus exudes a vibrant and inclusive atmosphere that makes me feel right at home. The sunny weather and diverse culture of Florida add an extra spark to the overall experience.
Due to class size, Professor are able to answer questions and interact with students one on one. I always receive fast responses from professors and they are always willing to help.
I also find the campus to be very organized and clean. They frequently host events for students throughout the semester where students can participate and learn about clubs and activities they can join.
Valencia College is a great option if you want to go to school with flexible hours. The professors are always very caring and understanding of the students' lives. The work is easy to follow. This is a great option if you want to finish school on a tight schedule.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Valencia College is 100%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
I would tell myself that time management is the most important thing in college. There are going to be those times where your peers go out and are going to pressure you to go out and party with them, but it is up to you to take responsibility and stand up for yourself and say no becaause you want to be something in life. There is going to be a lot of time to party after college, and all you have to do is give up four years of your life. I learned this the hard way. For my first year of college, I joined a Fraternity and partied all the time. I really put myself in a difficult position. I don't regret anything I did because all you can do is learn from your mistakes. Now I am working real hard in school trying to bring up my grades. I am not saying to be a book worm and study all day and have no fun because that is not what college is. The way I see it is study hard and reward yourself by going out when ever you can.
Most of my classmates take their schoolwork seriously and expected to succeed. All of the professors in VCC give each student an oppotunity to succeed, and each student is aware of that. Most of my classmates are working either part-time or full-time and are attending school either part-time or full-time. Because many of my classmates work as they attend college, it shows how hard VCC students work towards obtaining their Associate degrees.
That you should try to manage your time better and untilize all the resources available on campus. Also to always look out for scholarships.
One thing I dislike at Valencia Community College is the way lab classes are set up. For many other schools, a class is taught and the lab is standardized in order to make the schedule more flexible for the students. At Valencia, if a student were to select a teacher, the student must attend the teacher's specific lab. This may seem silly, but when juggling three or four lab-classes it gets very complex trying integrate each classes's schedule.
Valencia Community College is very driven to see their students succeed.
Valencia college use to be a community college, so therefor the classes are not as expensive. I can graduate with a nursing degree and pay a third, if not less, than any other university. This in general was my soul purpose for attending this perticular school.
I love the small class sizes; it allows the students to really get to know the professors.
The kind of person who shouldn't attend my school is someone who dosent take school very seriously. Someone who is just going to school because someone else wants them to. A person who is not dedicated to their future and what it has in store for them is not a good candidate for my school and should not attend.
I believe that any person of any background or religion can and should attend this school. This is an awesome place to get your education at and it has some wonderful people as well. If a person has been out of school for a while and decides to go back, this is a good place to do that at. I would recommend Valencia to anyone.
A lot of people go to my school. I guess if there is a down side, then this would be it. If they don't go to Valencia, either their not going to college or attending a more expensive school where for them cost is not an issue. Everyone knows what Valencia is probably just as much as a person attending the school, which takes out the element of surprise. On the bright side, if the majority of students in my area are attending Valencia, then it can't be a bad school.
The available hours for the counselors and professors. I also dislike the limited availability of dining spots.
I can honestly say I'm not big on some of the activities because I'm too busy sometimes. However, there is an honor society full of great people. The student government always manages to give us fun opportunities to join other groups and meet other people.
Teachers are very helpful. There are many ways to access help academically, and the online help manages to respond as soon as possible.
Valencia College is a good school. They encourage people to continue education after high school. I like to engage in many activities that involve community, and Valencia College had given me that opportunity.
I do not know what are the stereotypes. However, I like the school.
