My experience at the University of Central Florida is everything that any student that ever dreamed of going to college to ever imagine. Taking into consideration that UCF is the second largest University in the United States of America, you could say that it is a pretty intimidating start of a new begining. Although, with my professors, student life, leadership opportunities, clubs/organizations, and the overall structure of the campus itself has made my experience thus far absolutely amazing. I could never picture myself spending these four years anywhere else!

I love UCF because of its size, community, and location! I am a transfer student from a much smaller, private university. The large size of University of Central Florida gives students access to amazing resources and opportunities. I have had the opportunity to get involved in many clubs, and I have found an great opportunity doing undergraduate research - which I would really recommend. UCF's large size can be intimidating at first, but the community has been so welcoming! I also am a big fan of the location - Orlando is so busy, and close to home for me. The only thing that I would like to see change is class size in some of the introductory classes. My chemistry lecture last semester has 400 students, but in the more specialized classes, the number of people is much smaller. Overall, great school!
