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 had a great experience at UCF! My only concerns include parking & general help with classes, financial aid, etc. Since I have graduated, they have added several more buildings throughout the campus but no additional parking. I am going back to UCF to receive another bachelors and/or graduate degree and have had several difficulties finding the help I need to sign up for classes, financial aid, etc. The resources are out there but an appointment is required for everything. I would love to be able to just speak to someone over the phone instead of driving 30+ minutes every time I have a question about something.
