Guys & Girls:
Every one at the campus dresses to impress. Also share a lot of interests.

Some of it was expensive, although the convenience and quality was sure the key.

The drug scene at the University of Central Florida is almost non existent. Of course it depends on who you hang out with and where you are located at but the safety on campus makes it so that the air and environment always feel safe n clean.

The weather in Orlando is beautiful! Blue skies with perfectly whitened clouds above and birds chirping. It's beautiful. The downside is that being in Florida its so sunny and with the campus being so large it can be blinding if you don't have sunglasses. As for the rain...that can be miserable some days. During orientation they actually suggest every student to buy rain boots. If not you're stuck in a 3 hour lab in wet shoes and pants. Apart from that, I enjoy every minute of the weather at UCF. Daily, I relax in the grass by the reflection pond and watch the clouds!

Getting into UCF was the issue I had. I had a long list of extracurricular activities, I was ranked top 13 in my class of like 280 students, my GPA was a 3.9, I took a total of 7 AICE classes junior and senior year and passed all the exams, except for math. I had a great application, but my standardized test scores were average having an ACT score of 23. With this, I had to attend the summer semester or I could not go in the Fall. This was hurtful, but I'm just saying they really do hold test scores as number 1 priority!

I've only completed my first year, but I enjoy it thoroughly! The teachers are well experienced, and welcoming during office hours. We've had guest speakers come into my forensics class and they inform us on websites we should look into for job/internship opportunities, although they're hard to get into. The workload is reasonable, but you must stay on top of your work or it's easy to fall below a B.

I'm currently majoring in Forensic Science which is enough for me. Only two of the major universities in FL have this type of program so I'm grateful. I'm very pleased with it so far, the teachers I've had are very experienced in this field and show their passion. After I graduate I hope to start a job at a local county sheriff department or in a forensics lab. I worry that there won't be many openings although "google" claims its an increasing field, but with a job in this area, not too many people leave until retirement. But I'm willing to take the risk even if I have to move across the country! UCF will prepare me for my future.

Drug safety has become a huge initiative at UCF, but a lot of students who do drugs tend to do it off campus at house parties. On campus, they are strict enough to even ban smoking, but off campus is where most of the drug- doing takes place. As with most colleges and universities, alcohol is more prevalent. Policy has become more strict, though, and they are really cracking down.

Off-campus housing is great, from what I have seen. There are plenty of options for each and every students' needs, with expensive and inexpensive, fancy and simple. Some are close and some are far. There is an apartment for everyone, and all are safe.

Campus strictness is very all over the place, it is neither consistently strict nor consistently lenient. It appears to run on a case by case basis, with some extreme cases let off very easily, or the opposite occurring. Cheating is regularly punished, but underage drinking is caught and controlled sporadically.

The athletics are absolutely fantastic. Football is our biggest, and we have recently moved up a conference into what was the Big East, after becoming Conference USA champions just this past year. Our workout facilities are designed to benefit student athletes and general students alike, as well as cater to IM sports. As we compete in a wide range of sports, there is almost always an event to go to!
College Sophomore 2013-07-22T20:59:17Z
The weather is lovely all year round! No snow, very rare harsh weather, and the occasional refreshing afternoon rain shower in the warmer months. Even in winter it's not too cold, and students are almost always outside!
College Sophomore 2013-07-22T17:48:12Z
They know how to separate the people who don't care from the people who do.
College Sophomore 2013-07-22T17:45:37Z
They provide a lot of clubs and parties for students but a lot does end pretty early.
College Sophomore 2013-07-22T17:44:00Z
They certainly do care about the football team because that's all I hear about but i know that other teams are appreciated which is also cool.
College Sophomore 2013-07-22T17:42:13Z
I've never lived on campus but some of the dorms aren't bad from what i've seen.
College Sophomore 2013-07-22T17:40:37Z
the school is one big open circle and if the union is closed, you're stuck in whatever weather it is

There are different cultures here in campus and everyone is accepted by it. There is nothing wrong with the student body or a person's ethnic backgrounds towards other students. Everyone gets along great and we expand diversity here at UCF.
College Senior 2013-07-22T16:57:24Z
I am excited with my program at UCF because I was able to learn more about adolescence and children and education that I never learned before. I'm also able to learn a lot of math which is easy for me because math is my favorite and best subject to take. My career goals is to complete a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics Education and work full-time at a middle school and part-time as an adjunct professor in college.
College Senior 2013-07-22T16:51:47Z
It feels great to know you can meet the same people with similar majors like yourself. I enjoy y professors and my classmates because my professors are easy to understand and it's great to work with other classmates and interact with one another.

A typical internship will be a student teacher or Leader. I am currently a Supplemental Learning Leader at a college and it gives me a lot of experience on education. There is a pay every other week since it is like being a tutor, but with more benefits. I have to come prepared to help students and make sure that they have the study skills necessary to pass the course. My other responsibilities are coming up with my own hours and making SL sessions for the students to come to me for help.

The process of getting into my Mathematics Education major was simple. Although Education majors are not as restricted as other majors, there were specific guidelines to follow in order to graduate and earn your degree. There are three tests to complete, and they don't come very cheap. Each test helps you get closer to your major. I had a little problem completing one of the test that was a step into getting out of "Pending major" status because of the cost of the test and the time to take it. Now that I have taken it, the only courses I have are just mathematics courses and education courses.

I am really having a hard time finding financial aid and scholarships. I have an extremely high GPA, so one wouldn't think it would be that difficult to find schlolarships that I qualify for.
College Junior 2013-07-22T14:44:04Z
There are some great options near campus for cheap dining. Student discounts are plentiful.
College Junior 2013-07-22T14:38:38Z
I am taking online classes only do I don't really know what the on campus scene looks like
Sorry, there are no reviews.
