Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

The BSW program at UCF is a good introduction to social work. The classes are not very challenging. In order to get the most out of the program, you should participat in NASW, complete the honor in the major program, and commit time to volunteering. You have to take initiative to reap the benefits of the program.

Degree: Molecular Biology
Graduation Year: 2013

This school has great diversity and plenty of activities/clubs to get yourself into. Being that this is a large university, the majority of your classes contains hundreds of students, making it difficult to get to know your professor. Good luck with scheduling, especially when you are in your last few semesters. Some required courses are only offered once each semester, so if it is closed, then you'll have to wait until the next semester or whenever it is offered next. No wonder they call it "U Can't Finish" (on time). My tip is to get to know your academic advisor EARLY and make sure you plan out what courses you want to take and when so that you can be able to map out how long it will take to finish your degree. All in all, nice campus, great students, great sporting events and a wonderful lifetime experience.

Degree: Hospitality Management
Graduation Year: 2015

With over 60,000 students enrolled, the University of Central Florida is, of course, a large university, but aims to always foster a strong sense of inclusion. At this school, you will not get lost among the numbers! In an academic sense, especially as you begin classes in your major, the classroom size is great for learning. The instructors are professionals in their field and have an abundance of relevant knowledge to pass on to students, in addition to what you learn in the classrooms. The courses required for my major provided me with many of the resources needed to excel in my career. In terms of campus involvement, there is always activities going on! From the sports to campus activities to greek life, there is definitely something for everyone here. UCF allows you the opportunity to get a great education, make lifelong friendships, and always have something fun to do.

Degree: Chemistry Teacher Education
Graduation Year: 2016

The education programs at University of Central Florida are pretty rigorous with the focus on making you the best educator you can be. This program requires you to complete service learning hours working in schools as well as two internship opportunities. This definitely prepares you to find work once you are done with opportunities to network through your work in schools and various conferences. The overall school experience was good, plenty of activities for student involvement and fun vibe on campus. VERY SAFE! Police presence is evident on campus and makes you feel secure knowing there are over 60,000 students in attendance at any time.

Degree: Journalism
Graduation Year: 2015

My graduating high school class was 40 students, so my choice to study at the University of Central Florida, a public institution of over 60,000 students was a very conscious one. I thrived in such a diverse community and loved the big campus feel. Surprisingly I never felt like I was just another face in the crowd, even being in such a large university. The main reason I felt so connected was because my major- Journalism, was one of the smaller majors. The Nicholson School of Communication is much smaller and more intimate than others on campus. This helped me grow quickly, seizing opportunities to lead and volunteer, participate in internship fairs, and apply for scholarships within my school. The biggest asset was that class sizes were not more than 20 students whereas some of my peers in engineering had a few hundred classmates in each class. I was able to regularly meet with my professors and they mentored me closely. I felt like I received a high quality education because the majority of my professors were excellent- even my first few general education classes were decent. I was challenged but could still meet my assignment deadlines juggling a part time job at the campus recreation and wellness center and a journalism internship. I had a few mix mode online and face-to-face courses but the majority of my courses were face to face on campus. Perhaps the biggest reason I would recommend this university to others is because UCF is not only advancing very quickly, but they are also continually trying to better their programs for their students. Theyre building a beautiful new campus downtown and the journalism and communications department is always restructuring to stay up to speed with the fast-changing news media industry. Finally, I was able to graduate in three and a half years without overcrowding my schedule and with having an excellent undergraduate experience.

Degree: Civil Engineering
Graduation Year: 1994

The University of Florida is a world class institution of learning and research. I was able to learn from professors who have earned advanced degrees, but also who have worked in the field that I wanted to enter. When I arrived on campus I did not know what I wanted to major in, but with the help of some University employees I was able to choose Civil Engineering. Attending a school with such a wide variety of majors gave me many choices. I am very happy with the education I received.

Degree: Electrical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

UCF is a rising star among the great school on the east coast. I attended during my undergrads and after graduation I landed on a job at Lockheed Martin. I am proud to go back for my M. S. If you are looking for an affordable school to start a career you can make UCFyour home. Like they say UCF a better place to start!

Degree: Film/Cinema/Video Studies
Graduation Year: 2013

I would recommend UCF for students interested in hospitality and engineering. For art students, I have to say there is little or no opportunity for advancement or guidance. As a film student, it's disappointing how little interaction there is with other departments. It's almost clique like.
