Department Highlight

International Students Services Career Staff

From Left to Right: Marguerite Partain, Yonitha Berryhill, Clairssa Trujillo

Our dedicated International Student Services team assists students, from over 100 different countries, with everything from admissions and immigration to academic advising and university transfer.

We asked each staff member what what their favorite thing about Valencia was.

"It feels rewarding to know that as an institution in higher education, we (as career staff) are encouraged and supported financially by the college to continue our studies. Valencia College instills empowerment in its staff to continue learning and developing professionally. It’s a nourishing work environment!" - Clarissa Trujillo

"My favorite thing about working for Valencia College is that I get to advocate for the students." - Yonitha Berryhill

"My favorite thing about working for Valencia College is that it allows students, who may otherwise be blocked for a variety of different reasons, access to a great education to help them achieve their dreams!" - Marguerite Partain



Next CSA Meeting: July 22, 2015 (6-202)
