"UCF always felt like a home to me, despite its huge campus and student body. Within my specific major I found lots of resources and support. Peer advisors were especially helpful because it was advice given from actual students who took the same classes I did. I also enjoyed most of my classes, and those classes I found difficult, the professors and teaching assistants always took the time to help me understand concepts and prepare for exams. UCF also offered a wonderful "college experience", with tailgating events, football games, and an entire week of fun activities every fall semester. I loved my time as an undergrad at UCF and would recommend it to anyone. College is what you make of it, and UCF offers lots of opportunities to make college the best years of your life."

"The Psychology undergraduate program at UCF is incredible. I thoroughly enjoyed my time. The campus is beautiful and the environment is all around pleasant. The psychology degree requires you to choose a track which was not available during my time, but I think it is extremely helpful. These tracks include clinical, industrial/organizational, neuroscience, experimental, human factors, or general. These tracks help students gear their electives to their interests. For example if you are on the clinical track, all of your electives are clinical based. The psychology professors are great and they all have their individual teaching styles. It is easy to build relationships with them. I also received a minor in Human Services and loved this program as well. I believe it has transitioned to completely online, but these courses really help you understand helping professions and how to be a helper to people. UCF as a whole has hundreds of inclusive organizations and events that really make the campus feel like home. There are clubs for everyone. Anything from personal interest to professional interest type organizations can be found here. The campus is extremely diverse and welcoming to all backgrounds and students. Student life here is always active and there is always something to do. From sporting events, to free concerts, to jumping in the reflection pond during homecoming week, UCF has it all. I enjoyed my time living on campus my first year because it really helped me become a part of the community. There is also a dining program available to students."

"The University of Central Florida is the home of diversity and inclusion. They have a diverse faculty and diverse students attending the institution. My most prominent experience are the organizations and campuses provided for students at the institution. These experiences range from social to professional organizations and include diversity in mind. The standards of the professors are at a 3.5 in my eyes. UCF could do a better job at hiring more faculty and well-versed faculty."

This helped enhance my learning experience and I am very thankful for that."

"UCF is a great school, although it is very big there are plenty of activities and clubs around campus to get involved in so that you don't feel lost in the crowd of 60,000+ students. Most professors are great and helpful. Parking is horrible, so make sure to arrive on campus early so that you can find a parking stop and go to class."

"Located in Orlando, FL, the University of Central Florida provides their large number of students with vast opportunities no matter what degree program you're in. For Psychology, I felt that the Psychology advising department gave me the leg up on any psych-related opportunities and assisted me in engaging with extra-curricular activities in the university. Although class sizes, online or on campus, can be larger than expected, students are given opportunities to connect with others and their professor for a more one on one experience."

"The University of Central Florida is the second largest school in the nation. The psychology program is one of the largest at the school. If you do not need hands on attention, this school could be everything you ever dreamed of. The amount of diversity this school has is amazing. Every day I met someone new. Even just watching others from afar gave me a truly different insight on life. I pursued a major with a minor and I am off to complete my doctorates and the professors at UCF are who I have to thank. I wouldn't change my undergraduate years for anything."

"Psychology is the largest major program at UCF, and they definitely have the respective resources. The professors want you to excel, there are research and volunteer opportunities everywhere, and overall the Psychology major program has a lot of great people who will help you succeed in your future careee path, as well as give you a good idea of who your competition will be in the workforce. UCF as a whole is a great school as well. The school spirit radiates from miles away, there is always something to get involved in relating to the community, and it's a gorgeous piece of scenery as well. I'm beyond proud to be a Knight."

"Overall, I have enjoyed my time spent at UCF. I feel that my education here has value. I had several great professors that made me eager to learn and even more excited about my field, psychology. I did take a few transient courses at a community college. To compare the rigor, there is no competition. I felt as if I was back in high school when I took a few general education courses at the local community college. UCF challenges you to do things you have never done before, however it wasn't impossible;e. The professors are there to make sure you succeed. I have always had trouble with writing, so I made sure to attend office hours for my composition classes because I wasn't confident about writing a Literature Review or an Auto-Ethnography. I was a little uneasy about safety, simply because it is a large school. There are over 60,000 students and it is the second largest university in the United States. Also, there were a few incidents that made uneasy, which were out of the university's hands. There was a hack of social security numbers and a mass shooting in downtown Orlando, but like I said the university couldn't do anything more to prevent these events. The financial aid office is helpful, but the processing of paperwork takes 4-6 weeks. So, I would advise one to file paperwork early and properly. Finally, I'd like to touch on the diversity here. There are so many different ethnic and cultural groups, that no one can feel out of place. I am an African American without any religious affiliation and academically inclined. I joined an honor society and have made life long friends. I'd also like to note that the amount of diversity is a deterrent of many prejudiced people. I hadn't encountered any animosity due to a category that I'm associated with. In sum, this is a great university. I would highly recommend to students that are up for a challenge and aren't intimidated by the size."

"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!"

"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!"

"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 University of Central Florida is definitely worth going to. They always have events going on in order to show school spirit. There's concerts, movie nights, pool parties and Light Up UCF is the best. The people there are usually nice and the teachers are not too bad. I would definitely utilize every tool on campus. Talk to advisors, go out for clubs, get to know teachers. It will definitely help you in the end. All in all, the experience was one of the best of my life."

"I went to Valencia Community College and received my Associates degree, and then finished my Bachelors Degree at UCF. I loved being a student at UCF for many reasons. I found the Professors to be helpful, inspiring, motivating and passionate about helping students learn and achieve success with the classes. The UCF campus has grown, but my favorite places were the library and the student computer center where I could study and complete homework. I also liked how I could buy my books right there on campus at the book store in the student union, and the school campus had everything you need. The campus has a gym, restaurants, medical center, book store, computer center, library, and student help desk when your computer does not work right at your finger tips. I loved the UCF campus, and I would recommend the school to anyone interested in going to college."

"The UCF experience was great. The psychology program is very good and there are a ton of opportunities to conduct research or work in a lab. The campus is very large and can be difficult to navigate at first. If you do not have a car or know how to skateboard, you will need a bike. Overall amazing school, professors, and program! Large library, tons of places to study, and friendly environment. The only downside is the large class sizes!"
