I love going to Valencia college! I like the fact that professors make sure their students are learning and on track. Ever since I started Valencia in August, I have learned and grasped a completely new level of education. For example, when I started Anatomy and Physiology, I have learned so much more knowledge about the human body. For future students, I would have give a few pointers about keeping up with classwork and checking updates and announcements the professor or students make.

I like the environment and the people around the school not so much how long everything takes to get processed or taken care of. Financial Aid is still not done being processed for me and I had to borrow money to pay for one class that I am taking this semester, hoping I can get enough money from scholarships or FASFA this time around in January when I intend on taking three classes.
