"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."

"UCF provides an excellent psychology program. They really help you with goals for graduate school, plan out your classes for your interested field of psychology, and offer a lot of research assistant positions within their labs."

"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!"

"Tell us about your college experience.Good fit due to size of classes and campus feel. College experience was nice overall.Would you get the same degree if you could start over?Yes, but only because I love working in the field of my degree. The pay is horrible.What advice can you offer other students?Figure out what job opportunities are available and if possible continue to graduate school. Seek internships and experience prior to graduating."
