The parking lot is crowded.Quite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
The parking lot is crowded. The new books have words missing, faded pages, and often are poorly organized. There are professors who don't know how to teach and classes often get cancelled. Some courses that are required for a degree aren't offered or you can only do them online. They don't have a good selection of places to eat. There is no campus housing. There is always a problem with the financial aid department. They change FASFA information last minute and have added inaccurate information even when told it was inaccurate. Financial aid will always be late because of them making "corrections." The automated system for their answer center almost never works and you get bounced around trying to talk to someone who can help you. Some of the bathrooms are dated and some smell heavily all the time of perfume. The library has very few books and more computers than anyone ever uses. If you have to go to the Math Lab half of the computers have signs on them so you can't use and have to wait til someone is done. There is no apparent reason for the computers to be out of service all the time.

I have to say that Valencia Community CollegeOther
I have to say that Valencia Community College greatly helped me with my upper level classes as an undergrad. As a matter of fact, i was pleasantly suprised to discover that i was well prepared for my upper level classes due to the instruction i got from many of the Valencia community college teachers passionate of their jobs.I have only positive things to say about Valencia community college-it looks like it may now be Valencia college- for the period that I attended there during the autumn 2008/spring 2010 semester. First off, there are a wide range of classes and majors to just from and at the time I attended, it was one of the top rated community colleges within the U.S. Many of the teachers are passionate about their jobs and treat students from various backgrounds with dignity. The financial aid office and the student accounts/business sections keep up to date on any tuition owed and work with you right away on resolving situations if something seems wrong. There is a cafeteria that serves decent food for breakfast, lunch, and there are clubs on campus that give a person a comparative feel as if they were in college. However, the main reason why I had to eventually leave is because the economy in Orlando was tricky to navigate even for minimum wage jobs. For instance, I was lucky enough to almost get hired at Disney and the interviewer even noted that I had the perfect personality and qualifications for the job. However, he bluntly admitted that he could not hire me because I do not have a car (anyone who has ever been unemployed in florida knows that trying to get a car loan on an unemployment income based on florida is in a catch 22 situation). However, I would keep the option open of maybe taking some online classes from Valencia college in the future.

Valencia College is schoolSuper BrilliantBiology
Valencia College is school surrounded by friendly people. I experience the friendliness from students, professors, employees, and even visitors. I am not too happy that I will graduate after this semester. I love my school.
