Madeline - 3/23/2018
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2013
"I had an amazing experience at University of Central Florida. I ended up working in the Speech and Language Pathology field for the past couple years with pediatrics. I enjoyed the UCF program and campus because regardless of it being a large school I still felt a part of a great program. I have enjoyed what my degree has allowed me to achieve. The program at UCF was very supportive and the more involved in extra clubs the better support for jobs in the future. As long as I kept a schedule I was able to handle school full time and work during my college experience. I am now currently enrolled online earning my masters degree in Applied behavioral analysis with a certification in Autism at Indiana Ball State University. I plan to work with children with behaviors diagnosed with ASD."

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017
"The University of Central Florida has an outstanding program and resources available to undergrad students to succeed. I believe the education I received and the quality of the school I attended by far excels from other schools in the surrounding area. The health sciences- pre clinical program has prepared me for my next journey into graduate school and I think that is the best part of completing my bachelors degree."

Degree: Exercise Science
Graduation Year: 2018
"The University of Central Florida is a great university. The tuition in the state of Florida is fairly low when compared to other state universities. In addition, UCF is one of the largest universities in the country, because of this UCF has many resources to offer students whether it be clubs, sports clubs, intramural sports, internships, jobs, and networking. UCF is also located in a great area close to many large corporations such as Disney who consistently chose UCF students for jobs and internships."

Zachary Richardson - 1/30/2018
Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2018
"The professors at UCF are committed to teaching their students. In the three years I spent there, every member of their staff cared more about their students than their paycheck. Often times I would find that the professor would grade assignments on the spot and would even answer emails in the middle of the night. The institution was not an easy A, but if you want professors that challenge you and do everything in their power to insure you succeed after collage, then UCF's Digital Media program is for you."

Cherjovm - 11/19/2017
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2011
"The program was very well structured and, despite classes hosting close to 45 students, the faculty in charge used different pedagogy styles. In doing so, faculty members were able to accommodate all learner types, keep the group engaged. Working with individuals can be an intimidating career; to ensure we remain objective and free of bias, different theoretical frameworks were reviewed, different consultation styles were role played. Group activities were encouraged to ensure ongoing discussion and peer learning; all learning was applied through case studies and scenarios review. Guest speakers helped bring an extra sense of reality to the subject matter to ensure graduates are prepared to quickly build credibility and work with all types of clients and needs."

Joshua - 10/31/2017
Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2012
"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."

Angela - 10/5/2017
Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2017
"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."

Courtney Peters - 6/28/2017
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2017
"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.
