The University of Central Florida is one giant campus filled with students and faculty from all around the world. I transferred to UCF from my home in southern California. After my first semester at UCF i've fallen in love with my choice on schools. UCF is giving me the opportunity to follow my dreams by having my Human Health Science major available with helpful Academic advisors who are helping me reach my next goal in life of going to grad school and eventually preparing me for my ultimate goal of becoming a physician assistant. UCF also has a wide range of student activities like clubs, sports, and fun exercise classes that me and my friends have found helpful for making connections, releasing stress and for finding more ways to learn outside the classroom. Overall coming to UCF has been one of the best choices of my life and it gives me pride to believe in the slogan: " U Can Finish"!

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!
