The college is great!! It won the Aspen award, as the best community college in the nation!!! The campus is very nice.... people are very friendly, and eager to help when you need it... I certainly recommend any one in Orlando to attend Valencia first and then finishing you Bachelor's degree somewhere else. Although, Valencia is starting to add some Bachelor's programs, so you might be able to finish your degree there... Good Luck and have FUN!!!
