Transportation is great! There are plenty of shuttles around campus that take you back to multiple apartment complexes in the area. Perfect for anyone living off campus

There are 6 requirements to move from the pending status into declaring education as a major. They include: a minimum GPA of 2.5 (2.75 for early childhood) , completion of the general education program, or an AA equivalence, completion of the Gordon rule requirement, passing all four parts of the General Knowledge Test (GKT), completing the three basic prerequisite classes for the college of education (intro to the teaching profession, diversity for educators, technology for educators) and 2 subsequent semesters of foreign language (or 2 years in high school). My biggest piece of advice would be to study for all 4 sections of the GKT before taking it. Luckily, if you fail one section, you only have to retake the section you failed, however, you do have to pay for it again. My major is not a limited access program, so anyone who meets all six requirements can be admitted to the program. All you have to do is submit the change major request form on my.ucf.edu and change your major from the pending status.

I am a Sports and Exercise Science major at UCF and I have been very pleased. UCF offers a club related to this major which a lot of networking and opportunities come about. We are able to meet other students with the same major, which allows us to make future friendships.

UCF on campus housing and off campus housing is against under-age drinking and big parties. If you offend this rule, there are serious consequences that can ultimately lead to leaving the school. UCF strives to maintain the student safe and without harm, and with what I have seen they do a good job.

Since UCF is the largest school in the nation, you will be sure to find all sorts of people, ranging from ethnicity, color, and religion.

I came in as a Biology major and I am not a Sports and Exercise Science major. I can honestly say that the advising staff is very helpful in narrowing down what you want and how to go about the process of achieving you dream goal. They help you pick your classes one semester in advance, allowing us, the students, to really do our research on the professors. The professors I have had have been completely worth while. Their office hours are very flexible and are open to giving the students help wether if it is a homework question or why the answer we chose on a test is wrong. Tutoring is open every day for the majority of courses UCF provides. Overall, I am more than satisfied with the abundance of help UCF gives us, the student body, when we need it.

I only took part of a semester online me the way the class was set up was excellent.

I was set back two semester because of all the wrong information that was given to me.

Although I haven't been on campus yet the photos of the facilities look outstanding.

The school is very cautious however the introductory videos that are meant to to make to students aware of dangers can also tip off people trying to cause harm to others.
College Junior 2013-06-28T16:18:31Z
I absolutely love the program set up for my major.

I've never attended on campus only online so I wouldn't be able to review it.

On-campus transportation is superb. Students have free access to shuttles that travel around campus and between campus branches. There are even a few free routes to and from the city of Orlando during the Fall and Spring semesters.
The city's bus system leaves something to be desired.
The Orlando International Airport is not very far, so that's pretty convenient.

It's beautiful here in the fall, winter, and spring. But the summer is an entirely different story. Expect humidity and rainstorms that are so frequent you can set your clocks by them.

The most noticeable food options are fast food, and there's plenty of it. You'll find fast food joints you didn't know existed. But if you look more closely, you can find more interesting options such as Hawaiian Grindz and more sushi bars than I can name.

The buildings around campus are beautiful. We are close to being the largest campus in the country and it is easy to see that. The gym is huge and has just about everything that you could want in it.
College Senior 2013-06-27T00:24:09Z
It rains a good amount in Orlando. There are plenty of buildings to go into when it rains but if you are walking to class or around campus, there is no cover.

To get into the Event Management major it was fairly easy. I didn't find any difficulties or challenges. There was no strange application process, just the general application and transcripts.

One of the things I like about UCF is that there is diversity and chances of fitting in, regardless of who you are. Some may say there are more white students in the school. but I am able to see more hispanic, black, and asian students. It makes the experience of learning new things not only from professors in the university, but also from the students attending this school.
College Junior 2013-06-26T21:00:11Z
I don't think it's rather UCF fault for this issue, but I sometimes don't receive an amount of financial aid I really need to continue learning. The process itself can be stressful because I have to worry if everything is done right so I can get as much financial help as possible.
College Junior 2013-06-26T20:57:12Z
They are up to date and I really don't have a problem with them. I find it very useful when I need to print a paper or use wireless access. I didn't give it a A+ only because sometimes it can be hard to find an available computer.

Guys & Girls:
At UCF there are many different people. Every stereotype you can think of, you can find. Nerds, jocks, preps, rednecks, ravers, country boys, blondes, Greeks, etc. There are many different people but the best part is that everyone is welcoming to newcomers even though we all have different interests. Most of the students are good looking and friendly so it makes campus a very warm place to be. Most know how to dress themselves to look put together and professional but also comfortable.
College Junior 2013-06-26T18:30:30Z
The computers at my school are very up-to-date and there is almost always availability. I love the new technology that we always get to encounter everyday because UCF is constantly updating their technology to keep up with the ever changing world. On the other hand, the WIFI is very difficult to get connected to and it is very slow. As long as you are using the many desktops around the school that are available, you will not need WIFI so it is better to just use those rather than try using your own laptop. Sometimes it is reliable and sometimes it takes forever to open a browser. There are two printing labs, one for long term use and one for quick printing, usually the quick printing has a line but it moves fast and is more convenient for students on the go. Because of both of these resources, there is no need for a personal computer or printer. I did not have one until the end of my sophomore year of college just because I wanted one.

The Off-Campus Housing at University of Central Florida is excellent housing for freshman. It is easily accessible, almost always has openings and has transportation to campus available. Unfortunately after a while of living in places that do not have a lot of privacy and do a lot of noise interruptions, students will get tired of the quality just like I have by my junior year. You realize it isn't worth the money, especially once your parents stop paying for it. Next semester I plan on moving into a normal apartment not associated with the school because it is much cheaper and better quality privacy to allow me to study in peace. It was a good start to learn to live on my own, but now I want better quality homes for better pricing.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
