The University of Central Florida offers two school cafeterias located on opposite sides of campus. The meal plan cost is a little pricey but not exorbitant. The food is usually pretty decent. Some days the food is amazing and other days it is below par. Sometimes the food they serve does not make sense to serve to college students. Outside of the dining halls, there are a large number of other places to eat on campus. Almost every type of food is served.

The University of Central Florida has the 2nd highest college enrollment in the United States. With about 60,000 students , parking can be challenging.The majority of the time you can find a spot (usually in the parking garages). However sometimes and in some places, it is nearly impossible to find a spot. Permit costs seem reasonable and ticketing and fines are also reasonable. With all the above being said, you do not need a car to function on campus. Everything is in walking or biking distance.

Because this is the second largest university in the nation, I worry about my ability to get internships, jobs, or even opportunities to volunteer for activities that would help my career. UCF is a very do it yourself atmosphere. With 60,000+ students enrolled, you have to be ambitious and fight for your own opportunities.

The police are brutal, and parking services at UCF are among the worst in the nation. Any and every reason to give you a ticket for parking is taken advantage of. There are 8 cars to 1 parking spot, so often you miss classes just trying to find a place to park. Even the professors arrive late complaining that they couldn't park.

The UCF area has everything within the miles outside of campus from just about every ethnicity of food. I'm very pleased with dining options here, especially as a late night eater.

As long as I can log into the computer on various different areas in the massive campus It's a fine experience. If there's login issues it can get tricky.

The psychology department at UCF has a lot of interesting class options for those interested in various types of careers within psychology. However, research and lab options at UCF are pretty limited to I/O psychology which is unfortunate as many people are more interested in clinical or counseling psychology.

Rosen is a small community where it's easy to meet people. The dorms are wonderful, clean, with a full kitchen, and everyone has their own bedroom. Cost is fair, the people are nice, and there are events every couple of weeks. It's close to a lot of fun Orlando attractions. Wifi is hard to find though.
College Sophomore 2013-07-19T20:10:35Z
Its located in Orlando so theres a vast variety of choices to dine from that are open late.
College Sophomore 2013-07-19T20:08:10Z
Student life on campus is very active. The student union is always filled and has plenty of activities. Theres events such as spirit splash and tent day. Tent day is what the students call it because random people show up near campus and camp out.
College Sophomore 2013-07-19T20:02:11Z
UCF facilities are mostly brand new and maintained very well to meet every day student needs. Buildings such as an arena, Student Union building, ballrooms, and the best building In my view is the engineering building.
College Sophomore 2013-07-19T19:57:58Z
University of Central Florida is a fun and well educated school with many many activities to do after classes. Such as Late Knights and local Orlando attractions.

Its not uncommon for you got get a roommate who deals or buys drugs.

I did not have any challenges getting into UCF. The Arts and Humanities doesn't have a special application for English, unlike music, visual art, and theater where you have to audition or make a portfolio.

The most exhaustive list of majors I've seen in many colleges I've looked at, and I spoke a member of the English department and they said they plan on introducing two new majors by 2014, and that it is not uncommon for them to provide more majors in my time at school

I enjoy my program because it takes a really big school and divides it into a smaller school. Meaning it brings you closer to students with like degrees and gives you access to share information about the program and what to expect. UCF also offers clubs and organizations for this specific program. Also, most of the teachers have experience working in that specific field.

I my major is healthcare management. My parents wanted me to be a nurse but but I was always in love with the management side of business so I compromised with healthcare management. I ham very happy with my major. My career goals is to transfer into the physical therapy program. Once graduate school is done then I will open my own practice. My concerns is I am only working on a bachelors in management and most position require a masters degree.
College Student 2013-07-19T12:54:46Z
I have not had an internship as yet but it is required in order to complete the program. Upon entering the program I received a packet with basic information about the program and who is responsible for internships. The packet included a list of different facilities that I would be interning at the end of the program. The school is very organize.
College Student 2013-07-19T12:49:02Z
My program is a bachelors in healthcare management the requirements is to at least have a 2.0 gpa. I didn't have to do a special application process. The challenges I encounter was my orientation was close to the begining of the semester. At orientation is when you register for classes but because my orientation was so close to the begining of the semester class availability was full. It was really hard to find a class under my degree program that was not full. My advice maintain a good GPA and choose an orientation date as early as possible.

There is a lot of availability with off-campus housing. Pros are they offer shuttles to and from campus. They offer roomates to help with cost. The apartments are safe with security and very close to the school so you can ride a bike or skate board to class. Cons most floor plans force you to share a bathroom. One persons name has to be on the lease and if roomates decide to move you are responsible for the payment.

I gave a C because a strong Greek life versus a more subtle one is a matter of perspective. As a non-Greek student, I like that I do not feel any pressure to join a sorority to fit in, though doing so would make networking and meeting new people easier. I like that Greek events are fairly easy to find, but mostly if you look. However, compared to other universities, the on-campus house choices are pretty few, especially for such a large university. I can see this is partly due to UCF's highly variable and commutative study body, and some incidents of on-campus parties and hazing going badly. Though encouraging upstanding behavior is good, this also limits the growth of the Greek community on campus.

I was provided with a large amount of major options and minor combinations, and am happy with the one I have chosen. I would definitely choose my major and track again, though I may have declared a dual major to supplement my original major. I am mildly concerned for finding a job in my field. Being English, my parents were originally quite unhappy, but I joined a related professional organization and have already seen a considerable number of job offers posted to the organization. Additionally, the main campus is located very close to a number of potential employers who offer internships and room for advancement.

I like my specific program, and like its uniquely practical nature compared to other English degrees in Florida. Core classes and restrictive electives are well-focused, and the department is helpful. Course plans are outlined clearly and in a way that is easy to understand. However, (though I am only entering my senior year and still have plenty of core classes left) my core classes so far have been a blend of other Tech Comm majors and IT/Computer Science majors. While this makes sense, I also feel that as a Tech Comm major I could be challenged more with the curriculum. Teaching students with such different degrees makes it harder to effectively instruct either one in the way they should be for their intended careers.

Entering the English program was easy. After being accepted into the school, you did not need to be accepted into a second program to enroll in English major courses, for any of the three tracks. I needed a certain grade point average, which was not very high. Declaring online was simple.

Off-campus dining is great. There are a variety of options to choose from.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
