To get into the Business school you have to complete a set of prerequisites that are flat in all Florida state universities. It is simple all you have to do is complete the classes and maintain a 2.0 gpa.

I have not had any internships yet. I will be entering this year as a Junior and I intend to have one either this year or in the summer. I do not have any concerns looking for one because first off Orlando has various opportunities for finance or any business related major and also UCF does a good job in helping students land an internship.

Sports are a huge part of the University. The biggest sports are football, baseball, and basketball. Students are very spirited participating in game day activities all around campus.

Overall, the housing on campus and off is conveniently located. Prices are some what reasonable, depending on if you have roommates. Parking on campus is hectic , however it is improving each semester, as they are constantly adding parking garages. Safety on campus is awesome! Each of us are signed up to receive both email and text alerts to let us know when there is a possible threat. In addition, located around the school are alert pods that contact police with the push of a button. Tuition is slightly expensive, but that's to be expected at any large university. There is tons of opportunities for scholarships and grants. Current students are very welcome, there is absolutely something for everyone!

UCF offers a lot of scholarships but I personally have never been legible for one.
College Junior 2013-07-25T17:58:16Z
UCF has so many different activities to choose from. I'm personally in a sorority and it was the best decision I made. I have truly made some really close friends and on the plus it always keeps me busy.

I love ucf rec center. I probably go five times a week and I always go to the classes. They have great instructors for all of them.

Guys & Girls:
There are all types of guys at ucf. You have your preppy, fraty, surfer, skater and many more. Everyone has their own taste and I feel like there's a great diversity in guys for all of the girls.

I am happy with my decision to attend UCF overall. I am double majoring in economics and finiance and studied abroad for a semester to attain an international business minor.
UCF does not have a stellar economics program, but it is decent. The finance program is also good. The best part for me has bee the opportunity to study abroad.
I hope to work in the economics forecasting field and am concerned about finding a job after graduating because the job outlook is not great for anyone right now, but plan to use UCF's resources and the network I have made at UCF in my job search.
College Senior 2013-07-25T17:07:47Z
I am planning on having an internship this fall and am currently applying for several positions. There are many resources on campus to help you develop professional skills and fidn internships. Career Services is one of these resources and offers many helpful workshops and networking events.
Experiential Learning also assists business students in locating internships that can be counted as academic credit.

Embodies every almost every culture, lots of tolerance
College Senior 2013-07-25T17:05:04Z
I am double majoring in Economics and Finance and enjoy the school. UCF has a more applied focus for its economics programs than many schools, especially if you do the BSBA (rather than BA) in economics. Professors are generally good, but there are a few that are very unorganized.
Finance has a heavy focus on investments and real estate. There are many professors, but in general they are good quality.

While tailgating at UCF football games is popular, attendance at the games is low. There is an enormous student section that students can get into for free, but it is often only half full.
The facilities are generally all in good condition. Football receives the most support, basketball also receives quite a bit, but other sports are not extremely popular to the general student body at UCF.

There are multiple free printing labs on campus, but students have a printing limit. The Burnett Honors College offers free unlimited printing to Honors students.
The UCF Library should have more desktops available as they are often all in use.
The biggest problem is wifi on campus. It can be difficult to get in many locations and very slow. It is often impossible to get in the UCF library, which is a location students should be able to access the internet to complete work.

Health & Safety:
Security guards are available to shuttle students around campus late at night upon request. Campus police are definitely on top of things. Health center is generally quick and effective and is located close to most dorms. I do think more blue light phones should be installed.

While it does rain frequently in the afternoon between April and September, the majority of days on campus are sunny. Florida is very hot and humid, especially in the central part of the state, so if heat is a problem for you you will need to learn to drink plenty of water and dress appropriately for walking from class to class. If you enjoy the beach and summer vacations, this campus is ideal because three quarters of the year are summer vacation worthy.

I have had no problems with Financial Aid at UCF, but I am a chronic early bird. I know that getting things done well before the deadline and staying on top of our to dos are the secret to making the process smooth. There are also many scholarships listed for each program and then in general for the school.

I have not had an internship yet, but they are required for my program of Science Education. These internships are not paid, but there is significant probability that they will hire you to work in their school once you graduate.
College Sophomore 2013-07-25T15:45:15Z
As a Science Education major, I found it very important that my program be equal parts science curriculum and learning how to teach. This program excelled in both fields. There is a very specific degree plan, but it works to your advantage because you know exactly what your goals and objectives need to be. When I graduate, I plan to get a job in a local high school teaching Biology and Anatomy. I do not have many fears about finding a job. Science teachers are in high demand right now as many teachers from the baby boomer generation are retiring, and there is an 85% hiring rate for students from my program to the school they do their internship at.

I am not a picky eater. There are two dining halls on campus. I have only been to one and it is smaller than the dining halls at FSU. The union has many different options of where to eat. There is an Asian Chao, Whopper Bar, Pizza, Subway, a Mexican place, Chickfila, pita pit, and many more. By the towers(an on campus housing development) there is another subway, dominos, and the Japanese steakhouse Kyoto. Pricing is average and they do have flex dollars. Since I lived in on-campus housing that had a kitchen, I never had to get a meal plan.
College Junior 2013-07-24T19:22:31Z
If you choose to be in the program then you are in it. From what I understand at this point, there are no requirements
College Junior 2013-07-24T19:19:21Z
Although my program is difficult, I wouldn't change my decision for the world. If given a chance to do it again, I would. I am not concerned about finding a job because the medical field is full of opportunities.
College Junior 2013-07-24T19:13:59Z
My major is Biomedical Sciences. This major has a very heavy workload with 13+ credit hours per semester. The classes are not easy but the professors are top notch. This is a good major to look into if you are interested in pursuing the medical career.

Orlando is a huge metropolitan city, but its not amazing at all
Recent Alumnus 2013-07-23T22:45:39Z
It has many options to get around UCF. UCF provides transportation such as shuttles and zimride. There is also public transportation with the school with the Lynx Bus System.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
