University of Central Florida Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (140)
The University of Central Florida is a school that wants you. I had such a personal connection with everyone I was in contact with at UCF from my senior year of high school until even now. Being the largest school in Florida, it can seem like you're just another face. But with staff and students that are genuinely interested in your success, you feel as if you are cared for. Since day one of my freshman year, I have always felt comfortable with my choice at UCF.
The legal studies program at UCF is the reason I have a full time job today. Employers in the area see UCF Legal Studies graduates as potential new hires for their business. If you take the hardest courses offered, you will learn an abundance of information about legal writing and legal research, two skills that are necessary to get a job in the legal field. They also offer multiple specializations. I recommend getting two, as they are rather easy to obtain.
The school is great! Staff is friendly and so far have been helpful. There have been some individuals (staff and faculty) that I've had to constantly email or call to get help about something. The school is very active in communicating with students about career opportunities, campus activities and important academic matters.
I recently graduated from the University of Central Florida's Rosen College of Hospitality Management and couldn't have been more thrilled with my experience. Studying in the heart of hospitality allows students to learn from leading industry professionals. Internships and real-life work experience are right around the corner and employers are eager to hire students from Rosen.
I truly love UCF. It's the place I call home. I have been to three university's in my whole college career and this is the one I have made as my home.
The University of Central Florida is definitely worth going to. They always have events going on in order to show school spirit. There's concerts, movie nights, pool parties and Light Up UCF is the best. The people there are usually nice and the teachers are not too bad. I would definitely utilize every tool on campus. Talk to advisors, go out for clubs, get to know teachers. It will definitely help you in the end. All in all, the experience was one of the best of my life.
I am so fortunate to have obtained my English degree from UCF. The professors at UCF in the English Dept are extremely brilliant and quite engaging. I'm very proud of my education!
I gave the University of Central Florida a review of average because I think that I did not graduate with he above average knowledge that I would get compared to other seemingly better schools. I do believe my freshman year was above average. I learned a lot from UCF in my first year because they used to have an outstanding first year program. After your freshmen year it seems as if you're on your own but that could be where the real work begins in growing into an adult. For my major specifically I liked how the teachers were open and caring for you but it would only relate to their specific class. I think education encompasses more than just your major so that's why I gave UCF an average review. I do believe that the technology that UCF has is above average. They could increase the amount of locations they have for studying but printing on campus was pretty good and free. Great gym but there should be more of an emphasis on health because that is a huge factor in completing school and living life. I attend another school now and the teachers are always letting us know that if we need a job to let them know. And they have companies on campus at least a couple of times a week. There should really be no reason why someone doesn't have a job that wants one at the school I attend now. Can't say the same for UCF. They have fairs but it is only large fairs that happen occasionally.
I went to Valencia Community College and received my Associates degree, and then finished my Bachelors Degree at UCF. I loved being a student at UCF for many reasons. I found the Professors to be helpful, inspiring, motivating and passionate about helping students learn and achieve success with the classes. The UCF campus has grown, but my favorite places were the library and the student computer center where I could study and complete homework. I also liked how I could buy my books right there on campus at the book store in the student union, and the school campus had everything you need. The campus has a gym, restaurants, medical center, book store, computer center, library, and student help desk when your computer does not work right at your finger tips. I loved the UCF campus, and I would recommend the school to anyone interested in going to college.
The University of Central Florida has a lot to offer. Central Florida has great social justice activity, art, music, dancing, and on and on. The programs, I fear, are what you make of them though. Our field (social work) has become incredibly competitive. I was willing to go where the work was - in my case, to Alaska - but unfortunately a great deal of people in my graduating class are either unemployed or not employed in our field. So if you go to UCF, or any University really, make sure you get involved, learn lots, network, and do as many different types of things as you can!
