University of Central Florida Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (137)
The University of Central Florida is an excellent academic institution with very helpful faculty and a plethora of resources such as the Writing Center and Health Services, dedicated to yielding well-rounded, educated students.
The interdisciplinary studies department at UCF is not for everyone. One has to do most of the work yourself because there is not much guidance. You are severely restricted with what classes you can take because each department doesn't consider you a student. I wasn't able to take upper level classes in education or psychology because I wasn't considered a student in their department even though I was a declared IDS student with those selected disciplines. Every semester was a struggle for classes.
The Rosen College of Hospitality Management at UCF has given me the confidence to expand on my dream by welcoming me by multiple means. Returning to school has given me a wealth of knowledge making me a more educated and well-rounded individual and I appreciate that the faculty feel my working experience can be beneficial to students in my program. Being a role-model and leader has set me apart in allowing me to pursue other foundations for service than the traditional learning path of students not coming from the workforce. There is never a time when one stops learning, and I know there is always more to recognize in the profession. Because of my relentless drive to succeed and my desire to learn, it is my desire to better serve those who will be put in my care and be an example to others that follow my footsteps. I wish to continue giving my time and experience to others in the hospitality field, so that everyone’s service encounter is “giving the world the best you have” and have “the best come back to you” by giving to others that best I received!-Madeline Bridges
This school can definitely be a little intimidating because of it's size, but it is simply amazing. Everything at this school is not only convenient, but excellently designed. Once you learn your way around, there really are a lot of helpful tools they provide you with to aid you in your college journey.
Although class sizees were large, professors offered extra help during office hours. Take advantage of the large class sizes by forming study groups. Extra help is always available to those who are willing to make time and put in the effort.
Though University of Central Florida is the 2nd largest university in the nation, that doesn't stop one from being able to receive a quality education. I'm currently enrolled in Psychology, and I can't even begin to describe how helpful and kind all of my current teachers have been. Without the guidance of many of my professors, I'm not sure I would be where I am right now.
UCF is a great school to go to! Earning my degree did not take long. The atmosphere and campus is awesome!
The University of Central Florida is a school that wants you. I had such a personal connection with everyone I was in contact with at UCF from my senior year of high school until even now. Being the largest school in Florida, it can seem like you're just another face. But with staff and students that are genuinely interested in your success, you feel as if you are cared for. Since day one of my freshman year, I have always felt comfortable with my choice at UCF.
The legal studies program at UCF is the reason I have a full time job today. Employers in the area see UCF Legal Studies graduates as potential new hires for their business. If you take the hardest courses offered, you will learn an abundance of information about legal writing and legal research, two skills that are necessary to get a job in the legal field. They also offer multiple specializations. I recommend getting two, as they are rather easy to obtain.
The school is great! Staff is friendly and so far have been helpful. There have been some individuals (staff and faculty) that I've had to constantly email or call to get help about something. The school is very active in communicating with students about career opportunities, campus activities and important academic matters.
