Clubs and Organizations
Valencia offers more than 60 groups, clubs and organizations, including clubs for movie, book, art and animal lovers, clubs for African-American, Latino, Caribbean and Muslim students, career interest groups, student government and Valencia Volunteers. We also offer intramural sports and campus fitness centers for aspiring athletes and those who just want to stay in shape.
From film festivals to music and dance concerts, plays, guest speakers and cultural events, there’s always something happening on Valencia’s campuses. The biggest student event is Spirit Day, a festival held each fall. A long-standing tradition, this fun-filled event features music, food, games and contests.
Year-round sunshine, local theme parks and nearby beaches have made Central Florida a vacation destination—and a great place to live. In addition to nearby theme parks, shopping and restaurants, Valencia students can take advantage of downtown Orlando’s unique arts venues and music scene. Sports fanatics can cheer on the UCF Knights at their new football stadium nearby the East Campus or catch a Magic game at the Amway arena in downtown Orlando.
Valencia’s study abroad program prepares students to live, work, and collaborate effectively in a global community by providing learning experiences that promote an understanding of cultural diversity, increase language acquisition and fluency, and develop intercultural competency.
