Student life at Valencia goes well beyond the classroom. Throughout the year, our campuses come alive with cultural performances, art exhibits, film festivals, concerts, guest speakers, rallies, and dozens of clubs and organizations. Valencia has even been a tour stop for U.S. presidents, including Barack Obama. In addition, International Student Services hosts special events, from immigration and employment workshops to cultural events, where you can meet other international students.
There’s always something happening on Valencia’s campuses. Check the events calendar regularly to see what’s coming up.
