THe dinning option that UCF has at the marketplace contain your typical college student meal: pizza, pasta, cookies,ice cream etcetera. If you choose to have a meal plan you have a choice between the unlimited or 6 times a week. The cost of the meal plan, in my opinion, is extremely expensive considering that the food is unhealthy and there is not much variety as the semester continues.

I haven't had an internship, but I plan to have one in the future. I think that internships are a great way to know what to expect when you get out in the workforce, look great on a resume, and are an easy way to network.

People often complain about the lack of parking at UCF, but I have never found it to be an issue. Granted, I'm very much a morning person, so I tend to begin my classes early in the day. I also enjoy walking, so I like to park further away from the university centre than most people do. I have never failed to find parking by the visitor's centre.

There are plenty of late-night entertainment venues available for the average college night owl. Unfortunately, these venues are very much tailored to the age of an undergraduate.

There are many places to eat on campus, from Chik-fil-a, to Einstein Bros. There is even a UCF affliliated restuarant, that is student owned, called Wackadoos. Off campus, there is a larger array and choices, from Japanese buffets, to Mexican bistros. So when it comes to dining at restaurants, one doesn't really get bored, but it can take a toll on your wallet. As for meal plans; the food is pretty good, but the meals get repetitive. There's always a choice, of hamburgers, pizza, and sandwiches, and ONE surprise meal that gets switched up each day. So things can get pretty repetitive with a meal plan. However, there are many food marts nearby for one to go grocery shopping as well.

I am very content with the program at UCF. I would do it all over again if I could, seeing that I feel prepared for my future as a Doctor. My career goals are to be a pediatrician, and one day specialize in Neonatal Care. My only concern with finding a job in my field, is whether to work in an urban hospital, or suburban clinic.

I'm in the bio medical major at University of Central Florida. I enjoy the program, because it is rigorous, and I feel like I'm being adequately prepared for Med school. The curriculum is well rounded, and the workload is demanding enough, but not too stressful. There are plenty of internship/job opportunities, and even a very convenient PreProffesional Health Assistance Office that walks you through your journey to becoming successful.

UCF is located just 30 mins away from all of the theme parks, so there is always something not too far away

I really want a internship in my area of study, but right now it is tough to find one. I would like to start my career and start to understand what a civil engineer exactly does during a typical day. I have been searching and applying for one. They usually are 20 hours a week with some sort of pay.

I have enjoyed the engineer department at UCF. It has plenty of groups that you can join and be apart of during your time here. This program has great success rate for graduating students to find a job after college.

As a engineer major, I went away from anything my family members know or what they do. I wanted to experience how to help people with the chance to create safer environments. So far my major hasn't brought me too much knowledge but in the near future there will be great learning opportunities. The jobs outside of college look promising in my field, everyone needs a engineer to design something more efficient and effective.

At University of Central Florida, we have a smoke free campus! Most people will drugs off campus and tend to lean towards drinking.

I will be applying for internships this winter and the process to acquire an internship or co-op is extremely easy. At the Experiential Learning Office building students are guided through the process of writing a resume, given tips on how to improve their image, and given practice interviews. The office features many programs which can help students find the job they need. When the student has decided on a company they would like to work for, they only need to notify the office, and the office will set you up with an employer who will most likely contact you soon after you notify the office.

Enrolling in the engineering program at UCF is easy. Before enrollment I only had to take a math placement exam and use the results to pick the appropriate classes. The most important quality considered in admission is the quality of your math and writing skills.
College Senior 2012-10-24T03:13:37Z
I am an engineering student and I'm moderately satisfied with the program. It seems that this program is filled with many theoretical classes that have topics which are repeated several times in other courses. There is a moderate amount of emphasis being placed on keeping students updated with the latest engineering software and if they approved on this I would rate the program higher.

It rains a lot here, but that doesn't affect the campus experience. There are a lot of covered places at UCF. The only problem with the rain is that the parking lots/garages are so far away from classes that by the time you get to your car, you are soaking wet.

I like Orlando especially where UCF is located. I like the environment and and i feel safe. Orlando has great outdoor shopping areas and nice malls.
I think UCF is in a perfect place because it is surrounded by forests, beautiful lakes, and huge grass fields.
UCF has several parking garages that make parking a little easier but it does get crowded. Other than that I like UCF spirit, activities, shopping, etc.

There are a handful of computer labs that always have some computers available. Printing is free for set amount of pages per day and is an amazing commodity! I save so much money printing for free on campus. The network is very reliable and the speed is pretty good throughout the campus. The wireless access is better in some parts of the campus than others, but still good once you have a connection. The need for a personal computer and printer is not fully necessary, but more of a convenience due to all of the computers and printing services on campus.

The strictness in reference to parking and driving is crazy! Every problem I've had at the University of Central Florida is with parking. They are very strict with the parking decals and speeding. In some ways this is really good that the campus is so safe and rule concious, however if you're in a hurry it can get annoying. The institutuion has many policies that you need to pay attention to in order to keep up with the academic part such as enrollment/withdrawl deadlines.

The computers are extremely easily to access. There are computers anywhere you could need one. There is a free print lab in the student union as well as many printing opportunities throughout the campus. There are computer labs in most, if not all of the buildings. The attendents are very helpful if you have any questions or problems.

It is obvious that they are present. Those who are involved are very involved but the greek participants aren't viewed badly by those who are not a part of it.

They have events to help with getting rid of perscription drugs that you don't use and they have a module of drinking education to help keep track of what and how much you drink.

Knights Circle helps you with any problems you have in your apartment and reacts pretty quickly. You don't have to pay for electric or water and there is no cap so thats always good. I know that there are some non affliated with the school that can have a $200+ electric bill

I don't live on campus so i won't really know what to grade it.
