What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a transfer student from Valencia who started college later than my intended plan...I found a huge comfort in my new University home than what I had found at Valencia. I was scared, terrified even. I had heard stories that UCF truly stood for "U Can't Finish" due to the unavailability and difficulties of classes, and the inaccessibility of teachers. However, my very first advisory appointment with Jenna Gonzalez of the Biology department immediately put all of my worries to rest by finding a schedule that fit so perfectly with the work schedule I had to uphold. She brought to my attention everything a first time university student should know about the place I was going to spend so much of my life at. The Knights Pantry (which offers free food to students who sometimes must go without) and the free membership to the Recreation and Wellness Centers on campus provided me with sustenance for brain power and a positive outlet for when those study sessions proved to be too stressful. Flash forward two years, and I am completely comfortable at UCF. It has become my second home... a place I can be completely me- whether I spend hours in the library or socializing at copious amounts of events held weekly. There is a little bit of everything for the everything...in everybody.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love UCF! Even though it wasn't my first choice, I feel lucky to be going here. The campus is extremely HUGE. It is literally it's own little city, it's crazy but awesome at the same time. Since UCF is so big, the opportunities for internships and such are endless. There is definitely something to be found for everyone. Not going to lie though, on-campus housing is super expensive for the decent dorms, so I would look into either their off-campus housing or an apartment close by. A great way to make friends is by getting involved in a club or a sport. Also, the police puts our safety first, so if you happen to ever feel uncomfortable walking on-campus alone (specifically at night), there is a number you can call for someone to pick you up or walk with you which is great.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UCF is one of the biggest and most populated schools in Florida and in the US. Their’s always new people to meet and someone to talk to if you’re willing to open up which is one of the main characteristics I love about it. Activities and opportunities are always happening on and off campus for students to have fun or help out with the community.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UCF is a giant school, one of the biggest in the country in fact, but being on campus and interacting with other students in general just makes it feel so much smaller, in a good way. The people are just so friendly and willing to help you and the campus itself is beautiful. The boardwalk is amazing for those who like to venture in the woods and the breezeway is great for anyone looking for a book, some new UCF gear or just a bite to eat. The RWC is so beautiful and even has a rock wall that is free for students! The dorms are apartment and pod style for the most part and you typically are not sharing a bathroom with more than three people. Oh and let me not forget about how the Student Government Association works day and night for students to get discounted tickets to events such as concerts, movie tickets, and even theme park tickets! There are so many perks to being a UCF student and it feels more like a community than being at school. There are so many clubs (around 600 I believe) so that there definitely is something for everyone! Being a UCF Knight is amazing.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of Central Florida is a clean, open, opportunistic and engaging campus. In my experience, professors within the Chemistry Department are excellent with clear-cut syllabi and helpful teaching methods. The Biology department also does a very good job of being accessible and providing study material to students. The Student Government Association is highly involved in communicating with students, hearing concerns, solving issues and organizing important events in a timely manner, often without mistake. You will find that the culture of this school is very academically driven. Students come here with a goal to achieve and do not often participate in or advertise actions such as drinking or partying.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The four years that I have been at UCF have been great. You can truly see the transformation in the buildings, the student housing, and implementing new restaurants on campus that students can enjoy. They are constantly working to improve the quality of campus and activities so their students can have a great college experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of University of Central Florida is they are full of lies. When I first went to the campus for my orientation, I was promised assistance because I was a first generation student. I have never received any assistance and I have never felt any kind of support. I was told I was able to go to my professors whenever I needed and I was told I was going to have at least one advisor to look over my every move. Again , I have never been contacted by any advisor and i can hardly ever meet my professors whenever I have a doubt. Besides not being contacted by any advisor, they are impossible to find. I had a hard first couple of years and instead of having staff look over me and inquire about my wellbeing, I was unable to study because I was unable to pay for the semester. My grants were taken away and they won't let me enroll until I pay my debt off. They don't encourage students to give their best and now I understand why people nickname the school "U Cant Finish". The only thing I like about the school is the campus. To think I solely moved here to Florida to go to the University of Central Florida, upsets me. Worst school ever!!!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a great school! There are a lot of students and stuff to get involved in. Very energetic. When I first started taking classes here it was something I had to get used to. I was a part of a summer program and had the opportunity to meet several great administrators. There are kind people there.
