UCF is a great school as far as the academics go and there is a great atmosphere. Unfortunately the financial aid department is completely incompetent . when dealing with students. i have been instructed by them to take out loans because i wouldn't be receiving sufficient funds to cover my tuition and a week later after taking out loans i received other aid. By them it is too late to cancel the loan. I have also been cheated out of aid because the FA office processed my information late despite the fact that i submitted my fafsa in the first hour that it was open on January 1st.
I currently hold a full time job. I went back to college to earn an Interdisciplinary Studies degree in Political Science and Public Administration. The combined areas suited my current profession well by making me a better candidate for promotion.
I transferred from Florida International University to University of Central Florida. My first impression of the school was that it was bit overwhelming. The school itself is larger than most so I assumed the classes would be impersonal and I would be overlooked. After getting into my major, I found out how wrong I was. The professors I have come across at UCF have been phenomenal. They were inspirational, well-informed, and motivational. My professors did everything and anything they could to push you forward in life. It has been semesters since I have taken some of their classes and I have yet to forget their names. Coming to UCF has been one of the best decisions I have made for my life.
Deciding to attend the University of Central Florida was one of the best decisions of my life. There are so many opportunities at this school that are always a short reach away. The professors not only taught well but were confidants and sincere to their students. I still keep in contact with some of them and they truly care about where I am going.
Professors are very interested in assuring students get the most from their education, at least in the Elementary Education program. The program offers not only the degree but Reading and ESOL endorsements (they are integrated into the program). Additionally, the staff works with students to build minors and certificates onto the major, often using major courses for minor course requirements. Great school for Elementary Education!
Chemistry, being one of the smaller majors has a great selection of courses and professors. The class sizes are reasonable after organic chemistry II and the teachers want the best. The school overall is decent, the housing department is horrible, financial aid is iffy at best, stick with your department advisors for the best experience.
UCF is an amazing school with a lot of future opportunities. I attend Rosen college of hospitality and it's awesome! They provide a lot of help when it comes to getting jobs and helping students. I am thankful to say that they will make sure every student graduates with a job.
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!
As I embarked on a lifelong career, I enjoyed the experiences at UCF. This journey wasn't easy but it was all worth it at the end of my tedious journey. I had great professors, peers, and UCF workers that help me as well as instilling in me the knowledge that I can use throughout my career.
UCF truly stands for Opportunity. Get involved right away with whatever your heart desires; SGA, Greek Life, Student Orgs, Internships, and more. I did it all and it made my time worthwhile. Talk with professors, use career services and I guarantee you will have a career when you walk the stage as I did. Don't let anything pass you by and never give up.
