University of Central Florida Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (141)
I believe that the variety of student services offered at the University of Central Florida causes the school to go above and beyond what most people expect. The amount of opportunities, help, and available resources that are offered to the students not only makes the experience much less stressful but also provides so many options for students to make the most of their time spent at the university. UCF takes advantage of the fact that they are located in such an active city by collaborating with the business around them to create jobs or even workshops that can be available for students in any type of field.
The coursework is manageable and the teachers are very helpful. A downside would probably be the math program because it is very demanding and less helpful since most math problems are done over the computer. I have taken part in an online class and the only other course that requires a high amount of online learning tools is math.
UCF, in my opinion is a great school and I would reccomend any aspiring student to attend this school in order to achieve their future goals. The teachers are very helpful and inspirational and work hard to set healthy foundations for their students. UCF has an amazing department for both psychology and engineering and the amount of work given is durable.
The University of Central florida, is a great school. It may be a little pricey but they at least give you a chance. There also nummerous places to go on campus: wheter it be to eat or just to hang out. Also when it comes to academics UCF has you more than covered(with such things as the Writing Center, SARC,etc).
I LOVE UCF!! Ever since I first visited the campus, I fell in love with this school, and even though I'm super self-conscious naturally, as part of my personality, and timid around people I don't know, I love UCF because it has helped me to get out of my comfort zone and not worry as much about what people think of me - most people don't even notice the people they walk by.
UCF has taught me so much independence, and I just love everything about it. There is so much UCF has to offer regarding student services, that I don't even know about everything. It is also REALLY cool how most of these services are FREE, because college kids are usually broke! I just really love UCF, and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.
The University of Central Florida has exceded my expectations. My professors never cease to amaze from their travel experience relative to the class, their field experience, their diversity and versitality. Online courses are easy to access and keep up with. Though not in the classrooom proffesors are accesable and breakdown course material very well. I have enjoyed all my online courses and I have learned my material just as well as if I was in a classroom.
Another thing I love is that I am never bored, there is always something to do, from movie nights, bowling, rock climbing, zumba, swimming, volleyball, clubs, conferences, volunteer work, and so much more. This may sound like a comercial but honestly I love my University. I feel enriched, inspired and I trully learn something new everyday. The University of Central Florida provides one of the best college experiences to all of those who are willing to take advantage of all it has to offer.
Student services are great aswell, you will definetly get all the help you need. In conclution I am a tranfer student from another country and I honestly dont regret moving to UCF. I enjoy all my courses and have met some quality people. Yes you may find this in other Universities but what sets us appart is that UCF trully stands for opportunity.
Workshops, internships and all the desire to make students the best they can be is a characteristic that is trully portrayed. As a student to sit in class and trully admire the people who teach you because of what they have accomplished and to aspire for more is rare but can be found here in the University of Central Florida.
I am currently (as of Fall 2012) enrolled in the University of Central Florida, and I love it!
I have met so many passionate people who are here to help students succeed. The big town atmosphere is thought to be intimidating but it is actually very "home-y" here and the many clubs and organizations such as Greek life make it so much "smaller". I love being a UCF Knight!
It is only my first year here but I love all of my classes and my professors, especially those within my major of Hospitality. The only complaint I have is when calling someone or trying to get direct answers the service is not always very helpful. Overall I love UCF! Go Knights.
I am currently in my last semester of graduate school at University of Central Florida (UCF). UCF has an abundance of resources for its graduate students including travel grants, a brand new Graduate Student Center, workshops for thesis & dissertation help, a huge, tech-savvy library with lots of helpful staff, and some of the coolest professors. The professors are very knowledgeable and a pleasure to get to know.
The school is pretty big, which may overwhelm those of us coming from smaller colleges. However, if you attend orientation, you can usually find where you need to go fairly easy. I have taken both online classes and face-to-face ones. I've always had great experiences. Th English department is well-organized and I've never had a problem getting an appointment with a professor or the graduate program director. Calls and emails are always promptly returned, which I really appreciate.
Grad school is tough(I'm not sure if I've ever read so many articles/novels/books or typed so many words in my life!), but attending a school like UCF, with its abundance of resources and staff/faculty that actually answer their phones/email, has made my experience a positive one.
I think this is a good school if you are on a budget because this school has such a large population, the cost of tuition is cheaper than other schools. I think that is something people look over a lot.
The professors are good and then of course there will be not the best of professors. That will happen at any school you attend. Word of advice talk to people in your major that are older who can help guide you and offer helpful suggestions like which professor to take and stay away from.
All the student services here are amazing I take full advantage of all of them, sometimes with the tutoring it can really help outside of the class. Or other things like the TA's (teacher assistant) help out so much.
UCF has been my home for over a year now , and I wouldn't wish to be anywhere else! My professors are helpful and kind our health dept is awesome (great dental services) If you're sick there is no fee to see a great doctor and minimal prescription cost an absolute must for a student with no health insurance.
Overall it is the helpful and friendly atmosphere that has helped me blossom into an A student in the Honors in the Major program and on the Dean's list. I was a transfer student from Valencia Community College C average and at UCF I really feel like I'm reaching my potential with professors and staff who care and are invested in my success.
If you want to go to a top notch research school with people who help you achieve the greatness that you would have never believed you could than UCF is truly the place to be. GOOOOOO KNIGHTS!
