4 College Sophomore

Student Body: Nothing special, it's just your average college campus.

5 College Senior

Student Body: There is a lot of diversity on campus. People accept others no matter their ethnicity, religious views, economic status, or sexual orientation. It is a great environment.

3 Recent Alumnus

Student Body: I am usually in school to study, then go to work. Not really into the student body at my current place of study.

4 College Freshman

Student Body: Valencia has a very diverse population, and yet every just seems to get along just fine.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: Most students who go to Valencia want to go in and get out quickly so they can pursue a higher degree. I don't even know what types of clubs are offered or if anyone is in them. But some students are really goal oriented and want to interact with others and form study groups which is really helpful.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
