Orlando, DUH! What can you not do in Orlando. It has plenty of theme parks, a basketball team, and tons of other things to do.

Everyone at UCF and the surrounding areas is very laid-back and open to all different kinds of cultures and races. There is no kind of discrimination and everyone interacts with one another. Nearly all of the population is upbeat and friendly which keeps crime and violence to a minimum. And there's never a dull moment in Orlando, Florida. Even on week nights, there's always something to do or somewhere to go.

Biology TA – I worked as a teaching assistant for a Biology II Laboratory class and found it very rewarding. I did not get paid but received class credit for my work. I was not only able to interact with students and teach them what I already knew from previously taking the class, but was also able to learn many other things about biology and teaching itself that I did not previously know.

Biology Major Has Its Perks – I am currently a biology major and it definitely has its perks. The course load is rigorous but the rewards are phenomenal. Taking a very tough upper level class and succeeding is unlike any feeling. The professors are always there to help students and truly want them to succeed. In addition, there are many opportunities to obtain positions are undergraduate research assistants and other internship/job opportunities, all available at the biology office.

Orlando Atmosphere – The UCF atmosphere is great. There is so much to do on campus and off that it never gets boring. In addition, having Disney and Universal basically in our backyards is nothing to cry about either. It happens to give many students job opportunities as well as activities to do on the weekdays or weekends.

There are many varieties of classes to take at UCF, but the registration process is very poor. It seems like there are only so many seats available in each class and way to many students to accomodate which can be frusterating for some. The professors are nice and they know their subject matter. The work load is about average not too much to handle, and there are plenty of people and groups to reach out to if you need help as a student in your academics.
College Senior 2011-08-22T18:38:31Z
Very Encouraging – The staff is very encouraging to the students. They offer the help if you are willing to ask for it. There are many resources as well

Orlando is a very nice city, and has a lot to offer with attractions such as disney world, seaworld, and wet n wild. Safety all depends on where exactly you are, there are very nice places in orlando as well as not so nice. As far as UCF goes, I think it is way to big, but it has a lot to offer students as far as sports and clubs as well as a good education. The attitudes of the students from my experience has been good thus far.
College Senior 2011-08-22T18:36:04Z
Lots for Students and Young People to Do – There is a lot to do around the UCF area. It is close to the beach and Daytona as well as the Disney parks.

Not That Challenging – Honestly the biggest challenge is completing the classes and memorizing a lot of information since most of it you will need for jobs or graduate schools. As long you do your general education and some sciences courses you be on your way

Good Major – Well im a health major so i have definitely found many others with my same interest. They have clubs in which you can join and find information on my major. Guidence counselor willing to help me on which classes i need to take toward my major. Major itself i love it because it fits me

Oh Yes – Orlando is a tourist destination one of the most popular so just on that you have so many attractions like water parks and theme parks. City is diverse more than one culture and many diverse spots like restaurants and shopping center

I'm in OSI Productions and it has been an excellent experience. It is a great way to stay connected with my community and better my resume for my career in film production. It allows me to take another step to getting that edge in the workforce.

Always There for the Student – At University of Central Florida, the professors are very flexible. They will try their best to make sure that you, the student, is taken care of. The campus is a little spread out but it allows you to meet up with friends almost anywhere.

Waterford Lakes – It is a good little place about five minutes away called Waterford Lakes. It is an awesome place to hangout with friends on a friday or saturday night. There is a lot to do and personally I like to people watch. There is plenty of that to do. Plus you can do a lot of browsing and shopping for really cool clothes, food, and necessities for the dorm. What will get you in the end is the price of everything. It may be fun to hangout, but it can be expensive if you don't discipline yourself.

The Hidden Beauty – The University of Central Florida is located in the huge city of Orlando, allowing students plenty of exiting activities and attractions all within a 30 minute drive. There are plenty of clubs, restaurants, fun places like indoor laser tag and mini golf, and don't forget easy access to Walt Disney World and Universal Studios. With all of these crazy easily accessed attractions most students fail to realize the hidden beauty of the Little Econlockhatchee that lies right in UCF's backyard. My friends and I just happen to stumble upon and since that day whenever we are bored the Little Econ is where you will find us. It offers hiking, fishing, canoeing, awesome rope swings, exploring, and a great sense of adventure. Our adventurous Black Labrador Retriever, Gerkin, absolutely loves leading the way down the trails, and swimming up and down the river. We have explored so much of this river we have actually created of series of bridges from trees we have chopped down ourselves, as well as creating shelters in areas were we stay the night. So while every other college student is struggling to find parking at a club or a restaurant, we are simply enjoying life with each step we take deeper into Mother Nature's sanctuary.

Nike and Hercules Are the Best – The dorms at UCF are very nice. They are very modern and the Hercules and Nike Dorms are the best! They are located right next to the pool and the recreation center so it's convenient when wanting to tan and work out. They are also located walking distance from the Student Union which is the centralized building on campus.

Communication Sciences and Disorders – I'm in the College of Health and Public Affairs at the University of Central Florida and loving it so far. The professors and advisors are very helpful and I know I can go to them whenever I need something or someone to talk to.

The environment surrounding UCF is one of a kind. The poeple are very nice and the fact that there are a variety of shops and restaurants 10 minutes from the University is very helpful. Not having to travel far distances to buy groceries or to go out is very convenient.

Orlando + College = Awesome – It's calm and peaceful. There are activities and lots of events. There are so many theme parks located throughout the city. There are a lot of trees and at times stores and buildings are a bit spread apart. The school itself is huge and there is always an event going on. It's like its own mini city. There are a lot of plazas in the city. In all it's a nice town and wonderful school.

It Can Be Interesting.. College is located not too far from theme parks. There always seems to be something going on in the town. Orlando has a great basketball team and a developing soccer team.

Easy Squeezy – The process of getting into my Communication of Sciences and Disorders major could not have been easier. It is considered an "open major", which means you do not need permission to join. I could sign up for classes in my major without having been accepted.

Experienced Professors – I spent the past two years as an Elementary Education major learning from professors who actually taught in Elementary schools during the day. It was nice to have professors with real experience and not just someone with a degree lecturing to me.

Perfect Location – Orlando is known for it's amazing theme parks and nightlife. There is an attraction designed for practically any hobby. University of Central Florida is on the border of the busy Orlando and the quite town of Oviedo, making it the perfect location for both busy city students and small town locals. The University is less than an hour away from the beach, which adds to the long list of activities available to students. The only worry at this school is the stressful parking, which is guaranteed to take an extra hour out of your day.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
