Winter 2018 Vitae Ready for Reading

This holiday season, Valencia College invites friends and family to take a break from the hustle and bustle to read our best stories and catch up on the latest news affecting the Central Florida community.

The 22nd installment of Vitae, the college magazine, features a story on our fast-growing mechatronics program. Not sure what that is? Well, manufacturing for the space industry and smart factories is growing in a big way for the Central Florida region. Read how Valencia College is training the skilled workforce needed to help these industries thrive.

Looking for something less technical? Fans of quirky work spaces will appreciate our second feature, “Campus Nooks,” which explores the unique offices and labs of Valencia College faculty and staff.

In addition to telling Valencia College’s freshest stories, Vitae will bring readers up to speed on the latest news regarding the college’s growing role in the region – including details on Disney Aspire, the college’s new educational partnership with the world-renowned entertainment company.

For those looking to know more about our forthcoming downtown campus, check out “Up Close” to see the numbers behind our new collaboration with the University of Central Florida, opening in the heart of Creative Village on Aug. 26, 2019.

So grab a hot cup of cocoa or coffee and snuggle up with your mailed copy of Vitae – or log on to for extended digital content – including 360-degree videos and photos galore!
