University of Central Florida Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (140)
UCF is a large modern school that offers a large range of degrees. The university itself offers numerous outlets that gives students the chance to better understand each classes material which I found personally very helpful. Sport and Exercise Science on the Human Performance is the degree I am pursuing. The teachers were genuinely interested in helping their students and I used them as resources towards other aspects such as volunteer opportunities or shadowing hours as well as with academics.
My experience at UCF has been nothing short of amazing! My professors have been so enthusiastic about teaching and are more than willing to help when asked! The program is easy to follow, but advisers are always available to guide you through the process!
The Health Services Administration program at UCF was a great program. I started at UCF in Fall 2007 and changed my major a handful of times, ending on HSA. The advisers were super helpful in working with what I had already taken and figuring out which classes I still needed to take to graduate in the most time-efficient manner. I also was able to find an internship though the program so it was very helpful for that as well.
I attended the University of Florida from 2007 to 2009 and studied marketing after finishing a high school diploma-AA program. Most of my professors were good but when I graduated I was extremely underprepared for actually getting a job in my field. Hopefully, this has changed. Pros: Top 50 school, super cheap if you're in-state, massive size of the student population means there are many clubs and classes Cons: Could have used more guidance to transition into actually getting a job. Getting this academic degree seemed almost entirely separate from finding a job. Pro or con: Many of my classes were online and had 100s of people taking them at a time, many of my marketing classes toward the end of my degree were group project based
I am completely satisfied with the University of Central Florida. I earned my bachelor's degree in criminal justice completely online. I also earned an certificate in criminal profiling as well. The professors and staff were extremely helpful throughout my academic program.The people of UCF were also extremely accommodating to my physical disability. Thanks to the knowledge I obtained from the University, I can now move on to graduate school and achieve my dream of becoming a psychological profiler for law enforcement. I would highly recommend UCF to anyone interested in pursuing an education in criminal justice.
My whole experience felt like I was on a conveyor belt being shuffled along. I at no point felt like I was being cared for by the faculty or staff. However, Orlando was an awesome city to live in and the people of UCF are amazing. I just struggled with the structure of the communications department.
If it was not for the UCF DeVos Undergraduate Sport Business program, I would not be prepared for graduate school in the slightest nor would I have been accepted into two exceptional univerisities to obtain my MBA. When I was a senior in high school, I had every one of my peers and their mother telling me to choose either Florida State University of University of Florida for my bachelor's, but something in me pulled me towards the University of Central Florida. During my sophomore year, I met Professor Scott Bukstein and Doctor C. Keith Harrison who have become the largest influences in my life. They saw potential that I didn't see in myself. I spent my first semester in the sport business program volunteering at over fourteen events related to sports and eventually landed my first two internships, one with the Orlando Predators and another with Orlando City Soccer. I went on to volunteer for the Miami Dolphins and work for UCF Athletics and the Orlando Magic afterwards. Now, I am finishing up my last semester as an undergraduate student and moving on to either Seton Hall University or Point Park University to obtain my master's, but I need some help financially. I can't do this journey alone anymore as my student debt continues to rise and graduate school is significantly more expensive. Without UCF, however, graduate school would not even be an option for me at the moment and for that, I am forever grateful. They prepared me better than any other university could have dreamed of.
Although I had a highly atypical college experience with my father passing in my junior year, UF made me feel like I could succeed and make a difference even in the face of adversity. Every class at UF offered a unique challenge with a professor that showed they cared about his/her students. UF gave me a home and the knowledge and compassion to help others as a future Speech-Language pathologist. You can't find that at many schools!
The University of Central Florida is the second largest school in the nation. The psychology program is one of the largest at the school. If you do not need hands on attention, this school could be everything you ever dreamed of. The amount of diversity this school has is amazing. Every day I met someone new. Even just watching others from afar gave me a truly different insight on life. I pursued a major with a minor and I am off to complete my doctorates and the professors at UCF are who I have to thank. I wouldn't change my undergraduate years for anything.
University of Florida was great overall experience. The classes were sometimes challenging. Getting together with fellow classmates to complete work provided for different points of views on projects and a great base for finding new friends. The diversity on campus was great! Each month there was a different ethnic group being celebrated. There was a joyous sense of being associated with the "Gator Good."
