University of Central Florida Reviews
Review University of Central Florida
I enjoyed the camaraderie at UCF and the abundant amount of resources that was available to me. UCF really does promote itself on diversity and I definitely felt that I was apart of the family here. Fortunately, UCF also has a plentiful amount of connections, which could be used by students to find a future job prospect via internship opportunities. This is due to the fact that UCF is a partnership university, forming contracts with fortune 500 companies, thus fostering many careers. Although I expected this, I really did not appreciate the large class sizes that UCF had to offer, it was quite difficult to get one on one interactions with the professor. Furthermore, it was difficult to make meaningful connections with colleagues in class due to its interpersonal atmosphere created in auditorium style classes, thus I made most of my friends through work and clubs. Overall, UCF was a great University and I do not regret attending this great school. Go Knights!
The University of Central FL has a very lovely and spacious campus, it will definitely take you some time to learn you way around. The professors are extremely passionate about what they do, so, that makes learning and all of the lectures all the much better. People around the campus are also very friendly and helpful, if you are ever lost, simply go up to someone and they will help you with absolutely no judgement. The only negative thing I have experienced being a UCF has been the waiting time for your financial aid disbursements, it can get very stressful but you should also be understanding because the campus has more than 65,000 students; meaning you are not the only one facing the same exact problem!
UCF is a great school! It is the perfect mix of old and modern style, which makes for a beautiful campus. Classes and professors are great and there are so many opportunities for students not only in academics, but in extracurricular activities too. There are many clubs and organizations to join or starting a new one is always an option. Being involved on campus is made fun, especially when concerts, shows, parties, and other large events are held on campus. Opportunities range from studying abroad one summer to graduating with a dual degree. With over 60,000 students attending, it can be difficult to imagine that one is making a difference or having an impact on the university, but in reality, each student is a part of a much larger unit that all-together can make that difference in the community and even the world. Getting an education is made enjoyable at UCF!
