The latest edition of Vitae, the magazine of  Valencia College, is now online:

Vitae Magazine – 2014 Spring/Summer

In this issue, we check in with those who are part of a grassroots effort to boost college attendance in Osceola County, where it lags 10 percentage points behind neighboring counties. Read also about how students are working with local business owners to come up with creative solutions to small-business problems, and our cover story on distinguished graduate Angel Sanchez and other unlikely scholars who are defying the odds. All that and video too, where you can listen to the incredible vocal range of opera student Emily Grainger in a story titled “Idolizing Opera.”
