I am finishing my second year at the University of Central Florida, and undoubtedly, I am very content with my experience thus far. UCF is a diverse campus with tens of thousands of students, thereby providing us with an amazing opportunity to connect. Personally, I have met some incredible friends through attending this university and experienced some unforgettable memories. Generally, the professors I have had over my two years at UCF have been very helpful in my journey to become more knowledgeable; the knowledge I've acquired through my classes at UCF has expanded my horizons and has given me plenty of hope for my future endeavors. The campus is absolutely beautiful and I feel very safe there; it is easy to navigate, as I adapted to the campus within my first two weeks! I dearly appreciate the inclusivity of UCF and how free people feel to express themselves; I believe our campus is one of the all-time best. I'll always remember UCF!

The UCF Orlando campus and surrounding areas are filled with many things to do for students and alumni alike. From excellent food, Orlando City Games, theme parks, and fun night life, you'll never be bored as a UCF student. For one of the largest universities in the nation, I felt I was able to receive individualized attention on many of my academic needs as a student. The university has many amenities and resources for students to utilize. The school spirit is runs deep, and sporting events are always so much fun. Go Knights!
The University of Central Florida (Orlando, FL) is a great public university with many options available for its students. Even though it is only my first semester here I can already see what an amazing school it is. Friendly students, caring facility, and a gorgeous campus are only a few attributes that make this campus on to remember! One thing I would hope to see changed on campus is the diversity of students. Most students who attend the University of Central Florida are from Orlando. I would enjoy it if there was more variety.
