"The instructors are amazing. They work with you to the best they can to help you with your education, and the school tries to give you as many resources as you need to succeed. You can borrow laptops, cameras, recording equipment and other tools to help you learn, and you have so many opportunities to use what you're learning through the school paper, the school news show, student-run magazines and news sites and internships. Companies are invited into the school so students can connect with possible employers. I loved my experience there."

"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."
