I joined the UCF Knights because I was told to believe they have an excellent education program. I came with high expectations and they were all met. The professors there are excellent at what they do and getting their students to being the best educators in the state. The professors are always available and ready to answer any question you may have. Participation at UCF is encouraged, because it helps you to better understand your peers and yourself.

UCF is a great place. It is like it is own little town or city. There is lots to do on campus, so leaving would just be pointless. The excitement at football games or basketball games is just amazing! In the Central Florida area in general there is a lot to do, such as bowling, going to the movies, or grabbing a quick bite to eat. I love UCF, I believe it is the best place to be.

Orlando is a very college and tourist town. Some areas by the school are so pretty with lots of words and even deers sometimes. There are lots of places to go out with close friends and even met new people like the college bars, the downtown area, etc. Our school is known as under construction forever. Orlando might not be to safe but every college neighborhood has a under cover cop watch out for the bad guys. I love Orlando and wouldn't want to go to any other school!

Not Difficult at All – If you really like what you want to study and you have an open mind. Everything will be easy

School Focuses on Student Learning – A lot of help is given to students. Researches in which students participate are likely to affect the policies of the school concerning the education given.

A Lot of People to Meet a Lot of Stuff to Do – There is Universities and colleges very close to each other. There is a lot of nightclubs around UCF. Very good restaurants. Disney is no more than an hour and a half drive.

In general the facilities (from libraries, to food, to gyms) are all well maintained and accessible. During busy times some of the gym classes can be hard to get into, but other than that they are all well presented, the grounds are maintained on a regular basis, and the school, overall, is kept in great condition.

Health & Safety:
While I don't think it's overly safe (as a string of burglaries and shootings seem to be common near campus frequently) I personally have never felt unsafe or scared. At night there is the SAPS (I don't remember what it stands for but it's the guys on golf carts that come and pick you up and will drive you around campus at night so you don't have to walk) that I've used a few times and there is almost always other students present walking around campus.

Legal Studies – I have had many incredible professors and very few that I disliked. The Legal Studies program at UCF is excellent. My professors are more than willing to give me career advice as well as write recommendation letters and set up internships.

For the size of the school, UCF does a really good job at making sure students receive the help they need if they seek it. With such programs as SARK and Kaplan and Princeton review, tutoring in any subject is always available. The professors are mostly willing to make sure the students are understanding the material covered in class and are always willing to talk to students during their office hours.

Atmosphere of Orlando – Orlando's perks include it's variety of theme parks and attractions of that nature which include Walt Disney World and Universal Studios. I'm not a big fan of the sports teams here mainly because I am not a fan of the Orlando Magic, however, they are a pretty good team with avid fans. The Florida mall is vast and includes a wide variety of stores from high-end to bargain and outlet and is a great touristy spot. There are plenty of outlet malls here which are nice for the bargain hunters out there. The negative aspects of Orlando are that it is a landlocked city, there isn't that much cultural diversity, and it's extremely spread out.

I am very happy with the major I chose at the University. As a freshman I was not sure exactly what I wanted to do. Once I chose my major I have enjoyed the challenging classes. I have always gravitated towards math and now I am surrounded by it. With Electrical Engineering their are so many options which is the key to a career. I think that is the most important to me which is why I chose the major. I don't have any concerns about finding a job once I graduate. In the future I would like to work for Certon Inc which is a company near Melbourne Fl.

UCF has a very demanding and challenging Engineering program. In my opinion it prepares students very well for the future. As you may know Engineering requires a great amount of concentration on Mathematics; Calculus 1,2,and 3, phyics and other analytical courses.Students may not at first understand the importance of these courses at first but I feel as though these course mold your thinking habits. Engineers must be able to think methodically, step by step, working with their foundation and then beginning to build. Each real life problem is different but what we are taught is to use what you have learned an apply it to everything

The local atmosphere is very entertaining at the University of Central Florida. Not only does the school offer daily events on campus but off campus is another type of fun. Generally the places to go would be the theme parks; Disney, Sea World, Wet N Wild, however there are other places that are also just as fun and sought out. There is Ripleys Believe it or not as well as the new Dave and Busters that has recently opened. If you want to have fun International Drive (I-drive) is the place to go to be surrounded by food, fun and friends.

I haven't had an internship. I plan on having one because I need to pay for school and the school is cutting my funding!

The course standard is very low. Students need to try hard to fail. Special study option is not there.

The cost of rent is kind of high. The weather is terribly hot!

Master's in Social Work – For getting into the graduate program was quite challenging the waiting process took awhile.I have challenges in my internship the hands on experience.The important aspect is 3.0 G.P.A ,good resume and three reference letters. Remember you can't get lower then a b- in this program. No the application process isn't abnormal. Make sure you try to get in real early.

Home of the Knights.. The home of University of Central Florida atmosphere is a therapeutic atmosphere surrounded by beautiful trees and modern renovations.As a student it's a home away from home to me.Not only is the school surrounded by new building but you see new faces everyday. We our one of the top largest schools in the state of Florida with 60,000 students.Our motto stands for opportunity not only through academics but a chance to meet students from different cultures and participate in social activities throughout the campus.The University of Central of Florida is known throughout the Orlando area.No college could be perfectly located near attractions such as;Disney ,Universal Studios and Sea World.UCF Home of the Knights is a safe campus to be on students feel safe to walk around and shop at our Memory Mall. So convenient student purchase items for school ,get a hair cut or nails done after a hard work day.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
