To get into the physical therapy program is a long process. The prerequisites overall must be at a 3.0, and completed prior to applying for the program.The doctoral program is a full-time program requiring completion of 112 credit hours beyond the bachelor's degree.

Physical Therapy Is Great – Ive taken all of the prerequisites for the physical therapy program and what I found out is that all of the classes have a certain level of difficulty. It just comes with the terrritory. I learned through going to school that your mindset affects everything, so I tackled each class with a positive mind. My career goal is to start my own physical therapy practice. I dont really have any concerns because I feel that if I do everything that im supposed to do ( get good grades in class) then everything is going to fall in place.

Off-Campus Participation – Drug and alcohol use among the student population at UCF is fairly common. However, both mainly take place off-campus at local or downtown clubs. During both my summer semester and thus far into my fall semester, I met a somewhat high number of students that partake in recreational drug use of some kind; but generally do so off-campus.
There are noticeable groups of people and individuals, however, who choose not to participate in any kind of drugs use and are able to do so and maintain a social life without being affected by a great deal of pressure. It is, by my observation this semester and last and the observations of upperclassmen that I have met, equally as common to find people who abstain from drug use as it is to find those who occasionally or frequently do not.

Health & Safety:
Pretty Well Lit and Safe – The campus is well lit, there are security people with golf carts that drive around at night and will bring you to your car in the parking garage safely. There are also buttons all around campus for emergencies that call the police.

Parking is probably the most complicated thing at UCF. The campus is huge and finding a spot is no easy task. People constantly follow you if you're walking in the garage in hopes of taking your spot when you leave. The whole ordeal is stressful. If have to get to the school fairly early, before 9, if you want to find a spot easily.

Student Union – Very good variety in the student union. Ranging from your usual burgers to Chinese and of course pizza. The pricing is affordable and the atmosphere is great. One of the best places to hangout on campus

Drugs scene at University of Central Florida is not very apparent. Although it hard to put a number to drug consumption at UCF, it exists; but not as big as alcohol use.

Rains Quite Often – Of course living in Florida, there is usually a good chance of rain when it is hot and humid.

Greek life at UCF is fun. It's a great way to get involved but you don't HAVE to be involved with it in order to have a good time. Greek life at UCF is much more strict than at other schools. We tend to get in trouble over silly, little things.

The shuttles at UCF provide transportation to the school from over 15 apartment complexes and other various locations. This provides transportation for those who do not live on campus.

I Attend Palm Bay Campus – Since it's located behind BCC, the parking isnt too bad
College Senior 2012-08-23T20:54:45Z
I Attend the Palm Bay Campus – This campus is so tiny. It seems like none of the staff cares. I still cant get my laptop to hook-up to WiFi because all they ever do for me is give me a phone number to the main campus to call and ask them. Its ridiculous. Not to mention, all the classes are taught by the same teachers. I only had a choice from 2 minors, neither of which I was interested in... and i HAD to pick.

Convenient and Affordable – Most of the off-campus apartments have a rent around $600 and that usually includes utilities, cable, internet, furniture, etc. There are some complexes that are better than others (especially in regards to cleanliness), but most are very nice.

Rainy and Hot – It rains quite a bit in the fall (what with hurricane season) and it can get very hot in late spring and early fall.
