Helping Students With Writing, English and Speech Support Services

A Message from Falecia Williams, President, West and Downtown Campuses

Writing is essential for academic excellence across all disciplines. To help Valencia College students improve their writing skills, the College offers the Communications Center and Writing Center.

Students may visit the West Campus Communications Center and Writing Center in Building 5, Room 155, for support services for reading, writing, English and speech skills. The centers also supports EAP (English for Academic Purposes) students seeking to improve their communication and language skills in all academic areas.

If students need help with grammar, citations and even Microsoft Office, this is the place to turn to for help. Instructors and lab assistants are available to answer questions and assist with skill practice.

Students may use the center’s video speech room to record their speeches with the interactive green screen or practice their speaking and presentation skills. Additionally, the Center offers reading circles. Students can check in with a Communications Center instructor for the latest read and book circle times. Students can also reserve the collaboration room, a smart room with moveable furniture that can accommodate up to six students for group projects and speech practice.

The centers’ hours are Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. – 8 p.m., Friday from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Satu
