4 College Freshman

Majors: The aerospace engineering program is pretty great at UCF, considering UCF was originally a technical school specifically to educate students to work at NASA. There are plenty of opportunities to work on UAVs, rockets, and other aviation/aerospace projects. Classes are of course difficult (it's engineering, after all), but most of the staff is helpful. Workload is also very time-consuming. There are plenty of internship/job opportunities and most students get a job straight out of college.

3 College Freshman

Computers: Wifi can be awful in the most crowded places on campus such as the student union, and there never seems to be enough computers for everyone. You should definitely bring your own laptop to campus. Computer labs during finals are completely full all the time. Printing is alright; the best part about being in the honors college is that you get free printing in the honors college and honors dorms.

4 College Freshman

Majors: To declare an aerospace engineering (or any engineering) major, you have to meet certain general education requirements. Until then, you're "aerospace engineering - pending". It was relatively easy to declare my major once I was eligible--it was all online and approved via the online system.

5 College Freshman

Majors: As an aerospace engineering major attending UCF, I'm right next to aerospace companies such as Lockheed Martin and NASA. Through KnightLink, there are dozens of internship opportunities you can apply for, as well as internships not affiliated with UCF. I haven't completed an internship while at UCF as of now, but I will be completing one next summer, as it's very important to have internships under your belt as an engineering major.

2 College Student

Parking: Parking on campus can be difficult. If your classes are early in the morning or at an unpopular time it will not be difficult. Just be aware as an incoming Freshman you will get the worst parking and wont know the right spots for your schedule yet. Just be sure to give your self time until you know how the flow of parking works for you.

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: There are many places to eat at on campus! Anything from pizza, to subs, to chinese. I just wish there were more healthy options available.

3 College Junior

Academics: Many students, so no too much one on one time. Many business students, so there are always activities going on around campus, its's really easy to get involved and find help when you need it.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I am A Biomedical Sciences major and i think the curriculum is very well made and challenging.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: I think UCF is diverse in all areas. There are all types of races and economical backgrounds as well as all types of sexual orientations.

Drug Safety: Drinking is so popular especially during football season. There are numerous people who smoke weed, they may not be particularily visible but you can find them if you look.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: From Rosen to Main Campus transportation is alright.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: My school has something that we take pride in every year, it's called spirit splash. This happens every year for home coming it is something that pretty much every student looks forward at the beginning of the fall semester. Other than that I am part of this thing called the Excel Program which is only for STEM students (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics majors) which give their students the tools they need to make sure that they don't fail out in their first semester. Not only does Excel make sure you don't fail, they also give you the opportunity to take part in undergraduate research. Even though it might not be something for everyone it still helps out a lot because it gives the students some experience in their field and allows them to add a little something to their resume when on the job hunt. Also did I mention that students that do partake in that opportunity get around $1,000 for their time. This is just one of the many details that show the UCF stands for opportunity and if someone wants to get involved that person just has to go and look for it and they will get it.

3 College Freshman

Parking: There are multiple parking garages and lots here at UCF. some are obviously more popular than others due to where the the garages are located. Anyone can pretty much get parking where ever that want as long they have a permit to park. Usually most people shouldn't have a hard time getting to class from any parking garage only if you go to one that is really full.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life here at UCF isn't the biggest thing in the world. It's a good place for a person to meet new people but it's not something that you have to get into to be accepted her in UCF. It's great for the parties and the social life but as I said before it's not something that is vital for success.

5 College Junior

Academics: I love my major and I feel that my teachers love teaching it and they are very knowledgeable

5 College Junior

Campus Strictness: The university is very strict on drinking, parking, and drug related activities.

3 College Junior

Academics: I think the science department at this school is not that good.

3 College Freshman

Academics: I'm a biology major, and I have access to a lot of resource that I need for my major at UCF. The program is pretty good and you can get a lot of help if you need it. However, there is always the issue of not being able to get into a class or a lab, especially if they are lower-level courses, because of the sheer abundance of students at UCF.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I don't know of any use of really hardcore drugs at UCF, but I guess it depends on who you associate with. All I have seen is alcohol and pot use, but that is pretty common at every university.

3 College Freshman

Academics: Most of the professors at UCF are highly knowledgable, however there are always some professors that are more focused in other projects and research than they are in their students. Besides that, there are plenty of ways to get help with your academics at UCF, especially if you are a part of the Honors College.

3 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: Safety is a top priority for me on this campus. Needs improvement.

3 College Junior

Majors: To be a Chemistry major at U.C.F is rewarding if the student truly works hard. There are numerous research opportunities, as well as offers to be part of special groups or clubs. There are not, however, placements for internships. A student can register with Experiential Learning, which assists in resume building and job searching before graduation. The workload in general is absolutely time-consuming, which makes proper planning of outside activities, like jobs and family life, very essential.

3 College Junior

Majors: Overall I am happy with my program, especially due to the extremely helpful professors, as well as the College of Science's advising team. The one negative, for the Chemistry B.S anyhow, is that the senior-level classes and restricted electives are only offered one per year. This becomes a problem if a student withdrawals from one, which immediately affects graduation time. I would still repeat this degree, but would

3 College Junior

Majors: The acceptance criteria for the University of Central Florida's College of Science was simple. The student must have at least a 2.5 GPA, and have completed all general education requirements. To then be eligible to declare any major within the College of Sciences, the student should be enrolled in the core requirements that pertain to the degree chosen. I did not encounter any difficulties, however, I do recommend to any student transferring from another college, that it is essential to complete a certain amount of remaining credit hours at U.C.F's campus, to be awarded a degree. This holds true for the other Colleges at the University.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I love the Psychology department at UCF because there is always opportunities to participate in research. Also, the professors in my major are really great and actually take interest in your academic success. Although the classes are usually lecture halls, it is easy to get in contact with the professors. I also love that UCF offers free tutoring for certain classes that are typically difficult for all students to pass. Ultimately UCF is a great school to attend.

UCF is growing by leaps and bounds. The students love to hang out, and they all know how to have a good time. There’s so much to do and there’s something for everyone. Do you really need any more reasons to go to college in Florida?

Orlando is an exciting city with tons of attractions and activities available to all. In many ways, going to school at UCF resembles a four-year vacation (Disney on Sunday, classes on Monday!). Downtown Orlando on a Friday night can, at times, seem like Mardi Gras, and City Walk on a Saturday night isn’t to be missed. Also, Floridians are welcoming and friendly and most students at UCF make friends quickly and easily. Friendly faces and sunny skies, what more could a college student ask for? The stellar academics, up-and-coming sports teams, and state-of-the-art facilities are reason enough to spend the next four years of your life at UCF; the city of Orlando is just one big fringe benefit. Come join us!
