International students like FVCC:

Studying at FVCC is the best decision I have made. As an international student who speaks English as my second language, I have received lots of help in and out of class. There are many great instructors and resources to help me succeed. FVCC is a friendly environment, and there are many intramural activities to participate in and meet new friends.” (Yasmin Peng, International Student from Taiwan)

I chose FVCC because of the variety of educational programs offered, while being surrounded by beautiful parks, mountains and lakes! The FVCC staff and teachers have been very supportive. When I’m not studying I have had the opportunity to hike, mountain climb, ski, horseback ride and paddleboard (just to name a few activities!) I would recommend FVCC to anyone looking for a solid education and well-rounded experience.” (Sabina Lomozova, International Student from the Czech Republic)
