A Message from Wendy Givoglu, Interim President, East and Winter Park Campuses
Donuts were going fast on Tuesday, August 27, 2019, when East and Winter Park Campus Dean of Students Joe Sarrubbo hosted “Donuts with the Dean” in the atrium of Building 3. Students participated in this meet-and-greet session and were able to make connections with the Student Affairs leader and other students.
During the program, Joe discussed his position and how it impacts our students. Students asked questions regarding Valencia College’s policies and programs along with questions about how they can help other students succeed at the College. After all questions were answered, Student Development members initiated an ice breaker challenge where students tried to encouraged teammates to guess a word by providing other word clues.
Reflecting on the event, Joe said, “It was a great opportunity for me to interact with our students in a meaningful and transparent way, and to listen to ways we can improve their experiences in our learning community. I am glad so many students had the courage to ask questions and had fun interacting with each other.”
