3 College Senior

Student Body: The student body is okay. I have actually met a few outgoing and friendly people in the classroom, and some I am following on Instagram. But, besides that everyone seems to me in their own little world and just trying to get to class, finish and go home. I would like for there to be more excitement with the student body because that produces positive vibes within in everyone.

5 College Junior

Student Body: Valencia has so much diversity. People come from all over the world to study at Valencia. You can find any type of person at Valencia.

3 College Junior

Student Body: There are a lot of cliques at Valencia, so you basically just find the one your most like, and join them!

3 College Junior

Student Body: Valencia is a cheaper school and does draw a lower class of students who sometimes seem like they dont want to be there. But then others are there for the same reason as me, get the A.A and then transfer to a larger university.

5 College Junior

Student Body: The student body is great! There is a lot of diversity and I have met so many nice and friendly people. I thought I would be surrounded with a lot of people my age but I love that there are so many people at all age ranges. So many people with different cultures and backgrounds it is all so interesting.

The student body is very diverse when it comes to age, race, ethnicity, culture, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, political views, and economic standing. Most ethnic minorities are well represented at the school; Valencia Intercultural Student Association (VISA) is the voice of the international student body.

The majority of students have a busy schedule. Most of them work full-time and are full-time students, so while they are happy to socialize, it is not their priority. Most students just want to get down to business and finish their associate degree. However, it is not uncommon to see several different groups of students congregating in the coffee shop, at the library, discussing politics and religion while playing chess. Valencia is an open community where everyone seems to be working together to better their educational experience.

As for economic background, students who attend Valencia range from underprivileged to the upper class. However, economic differences rarely cause problems; students regard each other with mutual respect.
