I am just a Freshman this year and all of my classes have been online so far. I started this college in High School in Dual Enrollment during Covid, I have had all classes online and have only been on campus a few times for my registration, and to get my school ID. The teachers have all been really good to get back with me online with answers to my questions and have all been fair. The classes I have enjoyed so far and the students have been helpful with the peer reviews. I like the college so far and hope to be back on campus soon.

Jabria - 08/03/2021

Valencia is an affordable college for people who can\'t afford to attend a university, valencia\'s environment is very welcoming, The professors that I\'ve chosen so far have all been great they care and are willing to work things out if you have problems such as an emergency. Although I didn\'t have the full experience with valencia college like on campus (events, staying on campus (union west), etc). I guess valencia zoom university has been a great experience. 10/10 recommend.

Ruqayyah - 07/12/2021

My opinion of Valencia college is that overall, it is a great school! It is a community college, which means that class sizes are smaller, and the professors often know you by name and answer your questions directly, which is very nice. The culture is very accepting, and most people are friendly and polite. Most professors are kind, and Valencia offers a plethora of different degree programs, which is amazing.

Charmeka - 07/08/2021

Valencia is a very involved school. I attended Valencia right after high school and when I transferred because of moving; I hated the other school so I transferred back. Valencia has awesome teachers that are always willing to help and want you to succeed and move up. The administrators are helpful and want you to be successful as possible when it comes to getting ready for financial aid, taking challenging classes etc.. Valencia has great events and always wants students involved in clubs and other festivities. Overall Valencia is a great place to be for me, I would recommend them always.

Valencia College FAQS

    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 _____.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    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.

  3. Describe the students at your school.

    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.

  5. What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

    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.

  12. What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

    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.
