University of Central Florida Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (140)
UCF is a place for opportunity. Besides the challenging programs and courses, UCF provides a myriad of resources to prepare a student in their future endeavors. UCF is what you make of it. If you take advantage of courses, club and groups, and networking opportunities, your career can start as soon as you start your degree.
The staff of teachers for the Studio Arts program were wonderful and I learned valuable skills, but the program itself will not help you find a career path. I have learned nothing about companies to apply for or jobs I could get with the skills I am learning. There is a separate resource for that, but there should be a business class required as well. Also, the Visual Arts building is terribly cramped. There are too many people being accepted into the program and not enough space or materials in many classrooms. The building is so boring that it sucks the creative energy out of the air. I payed a little less to go to UCF, but the whole experience felt more like a business taking my money than an educational center. To top it all off, the parking was stressful. I spent an average of 30 minutes a day finding parking after paying around $100 for a 2 semester pass.
This is one of the best teacher prep programs in the state. I learned so much from the professors at UCF and it was all things that could be applied right away into the classroom. I am so happy I decided on UCF for my undergrad in Education. The degree program is highly respected in the state, and employers know what a degree in education from UCF means. Education is always changing and UCF takes the initiatives to keep up with the changing technology and theories to make sure that their students have access to the most up-to-date knowledge in education.
I enjoyed my time at UCF. The facilities were superb and the teachers were interesting.
My professors were very knowledgeable and helpful every step of the way in my degree program. Assignments and course readings are relevant to the skills necessary to become an excellent reading teacher. After completing the degree program I was well prepared to pass my comprehensive exam and teacher certification exams. My professors were always available to help me at any time. I would highly recommend this school and degree program.
UCF was a large school with several activities going on. If you are looking for a large social group or a large variety of groups to try and connect with, UCF is an excellent place to do so. If you are interested in smaller class sizes and stronger connections with professors, you may want to consider elsewhere.
I believe that the marketing and business courses have been very valuable with dedicated teachers.
UCF was a an amazing school with great teachers and a unique campus.
Going to The University of Central Florida for college was the best decision of my life. I made so many personal and professional connections that are continuing to positively impact me to this day. The professors in the College of Education are more than willing to assist and truly care about the success of the students. The internship opportunities provided allow for a real life experience and truly help prepare for a career in education. The time I spent at The University of Central Florida will stay with me forever. I even decided to pursue my graduate degree here partially because of the positive experience I had throughout my undergrad degree. I would highly recommend The University of Central Florida to all students who want an enriching and fulfilling college experience. The opportunities The University of Central Florida provides for it's students are endless.
I love UCF as my undergraduate choice of study. There are plenty of resources and so many degree programs to choose form. The college location is perfect for first time college goers and has so much to offer
