University of Central Florida Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (135)
I learned a lot from the opportunity to success because I too advantage of the professional resources. I am fortunate to have made mistakes and maybe even overcomit to different academic and extra-curricular responsibilities because the faculty and mentors at the school try engage in working with a student to help them understand what the best action to take is. Academically, UCF allowed me to purpose growth not only by giving me the opportunity to double major in marketing and finance but to also pursue a sales certification. Professionally, UCF allowed me to really get exposure to the corporate world by providing college work experience programs and unter national exchange internship programa of which I took advantage by being a co-op student at Lockheed Martin and Siemens Energy as well as being in the internship study abroad program through the office of experiential learning. It was invaluable experiences that taught me the skills necessary to succeed in the real world.
Hi, my name is K. and I am a freshmen at UCF. I am going in as a mathematical biology majors with the hopes of applying to pharmacy or medicine school at the end of my four years. You must be thinking mathematical biology? that sounds hard. Well to be honest with you it does sound hard because it requires a lot of dedication meaning no wild parties for me. But you should give up on it now because in the end it will be worth it. Word of advise don't give up on it without a fight!
It was a very good experience, especially with online classes in engineering. The facilities were rather nice and easy to use, a decent computer lab and classrooms, and a rather expansive and useful campus. There's very little that isn't located on site.
No complaints. I learned a good deal at my Masters program (UF). Not so much at my undergrad school. UCF was more of a experience that I will never forget. Joining a fraternity helped mold me into the person that I am today. Without that experience I do not know where I would be.
UCF has a lot of strengths but the humanities, the arts, and philosophy are not among them. There are some fine faculty in these departments but overall I would not recommend attending UCF if these are your interests. (Also, please consider that my review is based on attending from 2004-2008)
The University of Central Florida is an outstanding institution to come to, network, have fun, and get an education. The psychology degree program has plenty to offer and jobs can be found around the greater Orlando and Tampa area after completion of work. There's internships, labs, and many more things you can do in order to be successful enough to learn and get into a nice Master's degree program and Doctorate's. I can't really say much but UCF has everything any student would need. It's big, there's food places on campus, hair shop, and just it's an all around city!
The college program is great for those continuing on to Law School. However, I am an older student, returning to school trying to become a paralegal and almost a year after school, I still cannot get a job because everyone wants experience. I cannot afford an unpaid internship for 5 years all offices expect for experience as I have a family to support. Young students - get yourself involved early in an internship.
Great program with their own clinic, the aphasia house, and the fast center.
I did Direct Connect, a program where if you are accepted to UCF from the local Junior College, you enter in as a junior. Classes were offered at the same junior college for UCF as there are UCF campuses sharing the junior college campus. Some of the students are very involved. I was not able to be as involved because I worked daytime hours and could only attend evening courses. Most instructors were able to communicate with on a regular basis and even when I was having trouble, the professors worked with me. Though tuition was a little pricy, overall the school is great. I plan on returning!
I believe this degree is very important in identifying patterns of domestic and international issues, and helping shape the political minds of tomorrow that will be implementing and executing plans to solve real-world problems. The International Relations track was very useful in that it requires two additional terms of a foreign language that I found to be very helpful in not only language barrier break-down, but also to understand the way that other societies interpret information via their language building style.
