"UCF is a huge school. I did my first two years at Valencia College and then transferred over so it wasn't too scary or big of a change. If you look deep you can find a lot of opportunities. There are a lot of clubs to join and events to attend. I would say focus on your classes first. Take only 3 or so classes first and then see if you can take more so you can graduate faster. After you are comfortable with your class load, look around for events or clubs to join. Meet others, network and find like minded people, especially make friends. It is important to network because that will help you later a lot in life if you know a lot of people, because those people know a lot of other people who might be able to help you out. One more big thing is to keep in touch with your professors, because many future applications need recommendation letters so you want to get those too and to never get on the bad side of any professors because news travels fast. There are pros and cons to online classes. If you are self motivated and are a self learner and starter then this would be great for you. If you don't have good time management and are not self motivated it might a bad choice for you, but it doesn't hurt to try. Good luck in your future endeavors and GO KNIGHTS!"

"The University of Central Florida (UCF) was a great school to attend for my bachelor's degree. Even though teaching is not my intended career, after studying social science education at UCF, I felt completely prepared to teach well in a classroom. They connected every student in the program with two internships - a part-time one and a full-time one. During both internships, myself and my classmates were often offered jobs. We also learned a lot during that time - we had the opportunity to put skills into practice from our classes and were supervised by the teacher in the classroom and two others faculty members from campus. I rarely felt lost and was relieved to have so many people to ask questions. During my last semester and full-time internship, an education career fair was set up by the college and most students left that career fair with a job for the following school year. The only negative thing I can say about my program is I often felt alone in my classes. A few professors did not feel approachable and some did not have organized classes. You really had to put the effort in to learn with these classes but the outcome was worth it. A second part of UCF that helped me was having the option of taking certain classes online. I took half education-related courses and half social science classes. There were classes from each of these areas to take online, enough to where I could take about half or more classes online each semester. When it came to the on-campus classes, there were often different times and days to pick from. This flexibility was helpful because I was working during this time. The last aspect of UCF that appealed to me during my undergraduate years were the numerous resources available on campus. Group tutoring is abundant, especially for difficult STEM classes, like chemistry and math. There is a wonderful Counseling and Psychological Services center that students may utilize for counseling sessions each semester. I have found the Career Services Center to be particularly useful. They help create and review resumes, will talk to students about career options, gather resources for internships and jobs, and more. UCF is an amazing school overall, which is why I am attending again for my master's degree!"

"The education programs at University of Central Florida are pretty rigorous with the focus on making you the best educator you can be. This program requires you to complete service learning hours working in schools as well as two internship opportunities. This definitely prepares you to find work once you are done with opportunities to network through your work in schools and various conferences. The overall school experience was good, plenty of activities for student involvement and fun vibe on campus. VERY SAFE! Police presence is evident on campus and makes you feel secure knowing there are over 60,000 students in attendance at any time."

"Going to The University of Central Florida for college was the best decision of my life. I made so many personal and professional connections that are continuing to positively impact me to this day. The professors in the College of Education are more than willing to assist and truly care about the success of the students. The internship opportunities provided allow for a real life experience and truly help prepare for a career in education. The time I spent at The University of Central Florida will stay with me forever. I even decided to pursue my graduate degree here partially because of the positive experience I had throughout my undergrad degree. I would highly recommend The University of Central Florida to all students who want an enriching and fulfilling college experience. The opportunities The University of Central Florida provides for it's students are endless."
