University of Central Florida Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (142)
I attended the Nicholson School of Communication at the University of Central Florida where I received my degree studying Interpersonal & Organizational Communication. While I loved the overall University and it's campus culture, this degree program left much to be desired. I believe this degree program isn't even offered any more. I left this program feeling unprepared and honestly not sure how to apply the things I learned. It seemed like an itinerary of courses to check the box for your completion.
UCF's Accounting program is rigorous and rewarding. I am now attending graduate school, and I feel that my degree from UCF has certainly prepared me for this endeavor; UCF covered extensive topics that are just now being introduced to some of my graduate peers. There were plenty of networking opportunities at the university, but it is one of the largest in the nation, and thus very competitive. I must also note that it was difficult to attend UCF as a working student. Many networking opportunities clashed with working hours, and some College of Business programs required attendance to these event.
I can honestly say, I fully enjoyed my experience at UCF. It was a university that made you feel comfortable and had tremendous school spirit. There was always something going on and the campus is beautiful. The professor were pretty good for the most part.
I graduated wth my 4 year degree from UCF and I am about to begin the dual masters program for Criminal Justice and public administration. The curriculum for undergradauate studies was challenging but very rewarding. It has prepared me for my future career and has provided me the stepping stones that I will need to succeed in graduate school. The process has been great for graduate school. The advisors stay in communication with you and provide you with everything you will need to get started. I couldn't think of a better school to begin your future.
University of Central Florida it's rank high among many states because of the quality of their programs and their knowledge of current career demands and hands on training required to be successful in the marketplace. I love the environment, most instructors are amazing and I was so pleased that I am currently enrolled again and doing my Masters online.
I attended UCF as a Biology, pre-medical major. I have nothing but excellent things to say about the pre-med program at this school. The advising office is top-notch, preparing students in ways that many other schools do not even offer. There are multiple UCF accredited clinical internships offered per semester, which is also not offered at any other Florida university. There are endless research and networking opportunities in STEM. I highly recommend the university if you are pre-clinical! The only negative thing about going to such a huge school is that most classes have around 200-300 people in them. This makes it hard to get to know professors, although office hours help. There is also common issues with lines and parking, but UCF is doing its best to work on this while it continues to grow.
UCF's Real Estate program is excellent. I am triple majoring at UCF with a degree in Economics, Finance, and Real Estate. Real Estate by far is the best degree, it is very hands on, professors are industry experts that have worked countless years in the field. Out of the college of business it has to be one of the top programs offered with the most opportunity for students. I enjoyed and learned so much from the real estate program that I applied for the Professional Master's of Science in Real Estate program to which I will be attending in the fall.
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.
University of Central Florida (UCF) stands for opportunity. There are numerous resources provided at this institution to help students succeed. From classes to the service learning, career counseling, and even business laughing tips. UCF provides the skills to aid students to start their career with Career Service Center or even jumpstart their own business with the Blackstone LaunchPad. There's a diverse population here and everyone has a voice. I learned about the world from the perspective of students who are not like me and even made life long friends here. I believe I acquired the tools to start my career or even impact the world at UCF. There are so many ways to make an impact in the community here at UCF or even the world. I acquired over 400 hours of community service at UCF, learning about different parts of the community and building relationships. Coming to UCF is one of the best decisions, I ever made. If I had the chance to do it all over, I would do it the same and still choose UCF. UCF cares about their students physically, mentally, and emotionally. UCF provides services to keep students safe with police escorts at night and health with health service center. They provide programs such as counseling and UCF Cares for students going through an emotionally rough time. Even though UCF is the largest university in the nation, with a population over 64,000 students. I promise you, you will not feel like a number here at UCF.
My degree was primarily out of the College of Business and I was nothing but impressed with UCF's integration with the local business community. All of my professors had great connections and would bring in C-suite guest speakers from all types of local companies. If you made a relationship with your profession, they would also directly help you into an internship program by facilitating introductions and writing letters of recommendation. The program really works to make sure you get practical experience by teaching useful skills, offering resume advice, and requiring you to attend community events.
