Fast, Large Campus, Heavy Traffic, Lots to Do – There are plenty of attractions to keep busy with. Disney, Universal, and Sea World are a few examples. These attractions are less than an hour away from the campus, but they are a little expensive. There are plenty of shopping malls and places to eat too. Traffic around the campus is a little heavy and parking is sometimes a little rough too.

The university offers tutoring and SARC (student academic resource center) that helps troubled students with their classes. The professors are happy to be there and love their job which makes class worth going to.

U C F – Orlando is a vibrant city full of intresting activities to do or to see. UCF hosts many concerts and events to bring the students together as one. Major attractions such as Disney World, Universal Studios, and Islands of Adventure are only about 30 minutes away. The university's sport teams are great and have many fans!

Easy With Planning – Getting into my program was not difficult. The difficulty came when I decided to switch my major and was unable to complete some of my prerequisites for my program in a timely manner. The most important criteria is planning and talking to advisors to double check your progress.

Lots of Help – There are many different resources here on campus. Students must be willing to visit offices and take time out of their day but there are definitely multiple ways to get assistance with the workload. Whether large or average

East Vs. West – The East side is collegetown. There are a lot of restaurants and clubs but I don't go to clubs. I would rather a museum or attractions of that sort, most of those are downtown or on the West side. So there is a little traveling to be done but I believe it is worth it!

Great Networking – There is never a shortage of information collected from all Professors. Also there are several classes taught via web streaming that makes life a little easier for those who are employed.

Competition brings out the best in people. If it were easy everyone would have a Business degree. The level of difficulty really brings out the best in every student. For example, the people who passed the financial accounting class at our school, you know those people had to be dedicated and willing to really focus for long hours.

The process of getting into Elementary Education isn't too difficult. You have to have all of the common pre req's done and you have to take the GKT also known as the General Knowledge Test before you are really "in" the major. Not to difficult if you ask me!

Orlando in a Nutshell – Where to begin?! I currently reside in Orlando Florida. I'm enrolled at the University of Central Florida and it's honestly the best decision I have ever made. Orlando has so many fabulous things to offer. There are many different cultural festivals, over a doxen theme parks, and many neighboring colleges. There is always something fun to do and the nightlife is booming. I would reccommend Orlando to anyone.

Do I Regret Legal Studies – As a Legal Studies major, it's tough to really explain how secure the chances of landing a job is after law school, but its something that I've always wanted to do. It's been my dream to become an attorney. If I followed my parents advice, which was to go into the medical track, I would have been miserable and risk the possibility of loosing interest and not finishing college. My goal is to finish Law school and go on to open my own firm, or at least join a well known firm. As far as concerns, I have concerns about being able to find a job in my field because of increase of the amount of people becoming attorneys. So competition will be high in the profession.

Our Professors Train Us for Success – I'm in the college of health and public affairs at the University of Central Florida and I'm very satisfied with my education up to this point. In this college I have chosen to be a Legal Studies major, and my aspiration is to go onto Law school after college and become an attorney. A lot of my professors have very successful law firms and if they aren't practicing through their own law firms, they have connections with many other attorneys who can provide internships opportunities for students. The curriculum is held to a high standard in hope that the students of the University of Central Florida will be just as good as any other student from another institution of learning. Although the learning experience is by far the greatest I have ever experienced, the tuition has been hiked up many times and it becomes very difficult to meet the tuition especially with one parent working and the other out of work due to the bad economy.

Chemistry Ph.D – There is nothing else I can say except that it is difficult. There is nothing necessarily wrong with it but it requires a lot of work. It becomes enjoyable if you choose a research group with a project you like. The department is also luckily filled with nice people so they help make the experience feel less stressful.

The City of Orlando from a Students Perspecitive – The local atmosphere is tourist based, surrounded by attractions such as Walt Disney World and Universal Studios being the largest of many in the city of Orlando. Small attractions such as Wet-n-Wild and the putting edge service time consumption and joyous fun for a vast range of age groups from young children to the older age groups as well. Although Florida has a history of being comprised of southern Caucasian families, over the past few decades immigration of Hispanic families have spread across the state. Such influx created Hispanic communities which in return brought cultural events such as the Medina festival which is held every year and the verbena festival which is widely advertised across the state via radio every year. Unfortunately, as far as sports is concerned there aren't many leagues or things like that without fees to pay. The city of Orlando has a positive attitude toward students.

Big School – The University is huge, at least to my standards. There are a ton of majors to choose from. The campus is very large and it stays up pretty late. Most areas may stay open till midnight or 1:00am but there are buildings which open 24/7. There is usually plenty of space in classes but this also means classes can be huge. Professors are average in my opinion and the workload give here is reasonable.

The City of Orlando – University of Central Florida plays a big part into the city of Orlando but it is not the main attraction. Orlando basically has the option of amusement parks such as Disney or Universal which are sufficient for a while but not if you have went multiple times. There are things to do here and there but all will require a car for transportation. The public transport here is terrible because you can wait up to an hour for buses and if you intend to travel across town on a bus than plan much earlier for it may take a few hours. Nightlife is not so bad for there are a lot of bars which can be visited downtown. But overall the town is not so bad being that there are little things to do here and there.

UCF is located in sunny Florida. Great atmosphere. Weather is beautiful. Locals are very friendly and welcoming. Obviously there is the local attractions like Universal Studios and Disney World. For all the sports fans out there, the Orlando Magic play in the brand new Amway Centre. Usually on the weekends there are local food trucks that locate in one area and sell food. Theres music and entertainment. Lots of fun for the kids. Safety wise, its very safe. Definitely recommend coming to UCF or the central Florida area in general! A++!

I completed by degree mostly on a regional campus, which saved a lot of time and money since I live over an hour from main campus. UCF does a great job in providing classes in their 20 plus campuses. I now attend main campus twice a week, which isn't to bad of a drive. I really look forward to completing my degree and my internship next year because I know it will help greatly in securing a job after graduation.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
