4 College Senior

Overall Experience: My University is extremely helpful and has been nothing but good to me and that I am thankful for.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The University of Central Florida is a university which strives on top quality education. I have not had an encounter with a difficult professor to this date and they are very eager to help their students learn.

Another quality which I admire about my university is the diversity. Being that it is the second largest school in the country, one cannot deny that there are going to be a large group of diverse people. This has forced me to reach out to people out of my comfort zone and become more enlightened to other cultures and traditions.

Lastly, The University of Central Florida offers multiple resources to help their students succeed such as tutoring, career services, workshops, career fairs and more.

I can truly say from the bottom of my heart that I made the best decision by attending the University of Central Florida.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: UCF has a wide range of clubs and activities for students to get involved into, to create a better and more enjoyable learning experience. UCF also offers tutoring and course to give you tips on how to improve your absorption of information, to get a better understanding of what your learning. I must say overall this is the best university I have attended

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: While avoiding the freshman fifteen is constantly at the front of my mind I can never seem to pass up one dollar ice cream cone days at the University's Ice cream parlor. The University of Central Florida is like the melting pot of Florida students and students from around the country. The campus is a place to witness the beauty of different cultures and beliefs mash together in the most excepting atmosphere.

Throughout High School several of my teachers told me that they attended the University of Central Florida when it had not yet been known as "The University of Central Florida" but as Florida Technological Institute. Back in their day going to the now UCF was considered what teenagers consider the same as going into a Community College out of High School. And I like those other teenagers did not want to be stuck at Seminole State College, but on my way back to my car to endure my thirty minute drive back home to Sanford I noticed the pendulum that hangs in the Mathematical Sciences Building explaining how the same experiment had been performed in France hundreds of years before. The pendulum which was surrounded by glass still had the old seal, still containing the Pegasus and the star, but still boasted the name Florida Technological Institute. In that moment I didn't care where any of my other friends went to college, I chose the second largest University because I didn't want to be looked down on by my education choices but my choice wouldn't be so highly looked upon now if there hadn't been a Florida Technological Institute. The Institute that then fed into the NASA Space Program. The Institute that then became the University of Central Florida, the best choice for me.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I absolutely love UCF. I remember knowing nothing about colleges. When my parents took me on college tours, UCF was the first stop, and I haven't stopped loving it since. Their marching band is superb, and they have several great a cappella groups for me, one of which is an ICCA semifinalist. The academics are just as great as more "prestigious" schools such as UF, and the entire community has been very welcoming to me since I first got here. As someone who deals with social awkwardness, having a community to support me has really given me more confidence to be myself, and I'm grateful for that.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I really enjoy going to the University of Central Florida. The professors are eager to teach and treat you like an adult and are there to help, every step of the way.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Some staff members aren't very helpful and the campus is so big and confusing, even with maps, but the few good staff members are excellent and will go out of their way to help you

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I have had great experiences while I have been attending UCF. Their satellite campuses make it so simple to attend class whenever and wherever you want. The professors are extremely helpful and always have time for their students. Our school is unique because it's so diversified. There are students of all ages and races. I would choose UCF over and over if I had to do it again.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I haven't started classes yet, although I have toured a few times and I absolutely love it. Everyone seems so friendly and its a great school, I can't wait for classes to start!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: What made me choose UCF over other schools I was accepted to was the amazing financial aid and great weather. UCF gave me enough money to cover half of the cost of attendance and who could say no to Florida weather? I knew I wanted a large school with great academics and athletics, in particular a good football team, and UCF gave me just that. UCF went undefeated at home last year including an unforgettable overtime win against BYU. I would choose my school again over others because of how my freshman played out. I was able to save my parents tens of thousands of dollars by going here and received a once in a lifetime experience by doing so. For those who are curious, the only other school I was seriously considering before deciding on UCF was Penn State. Ultimately UCF cost a fraction of PSU, has better weather and a better football team. Those three truly pulled me down south to Florida and i dont regret a single second.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Everyone is very accepting. It is a bright and beautiful campus!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: UCF is an awesome school, everone is very welcoming and it is very easy to make freidns despite the large student body.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are so many opportunities at the University of Central Florida in the realms of both social and academic pursuits. Academically, there are many different majors, as well as internships and jobs in close proximity to the college. Socially, it's harder to be lonely here. While I'm overall a particularly shy person, it's easier to meet new people due to the sheer number of students. Additionally, as a result of the large student population, there are a plethora of different organizations, clubs, and events. My favorite events so far have been the football games (a lot of energy there), and Universal Knights, which gets you into Universal Studios free one night (how cool is that?). This school seems pretty tailored to each individual's needs, and I don't think I'd choose another college all things considered

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: UCF is not just a mere university, It is a world unto itself.

Boasted as the second-largest campus in the nation, it lives up to its reputation. Monolithic buildings stand guard over the sprawling campus, filled with every possible amenity you could dream of.

The residents are nice and welcoming, and are always there to lend a hand if the need arises.

There are over 600 cubs and organization to join, most of which hold massive campus-wide events like dances, concerts, sports, and much more. The Knight is not just a mascot, he is a symbol to look up to. Honor, Integrity, Scholarship, Community, Creativity, and Excellence, these are the tenants every student upholds.

UCF is opportunity, not just for scholarship, but for life as well. Hundreds of companies offer internships or partnerships on-campus, some even recruit from UCF exclusively.

I chose UCF over all other Universities because of this opportunity. No other University is as connected in the business, scientific, and economical world than UCF. I wouldn't trade my time here for anything.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Most university's were built years ago with the plan to house and educate half the amount of students they currently have. UCF, on the other hand, has had a plan of growth since the beginning. The university successfully educates thousands of students that is brilliantly laid out. This type of planning is consistent in every aspect of the university.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The University of Central Florida is an excellent university. That being said, I feel as though it is too large of a school for a student like myself.While UCF is a large school with many options, it is difficult to narrow down what it is you're looking for. I feel as though the advisors are not very helpful and the GEP program does not help guide you towards your interests. There are only a few classes offered for your core education and they are much too similar to high school options. One real positive about UCF is their desire to make a large school feel like a community and offer many resources whether it be mental health counseling, writing center assistance, or campus activities. Also the gym is a major selling point- great on campus amenity!

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The University of Central Florida has many reasons that make it a unique school. I find one of the biggest reasons is because they not only have their main campus in Orlando Florida, they have many regional campuses spread out across the coast of Florida. For me personally this has been huge because I am able to not just travel to the main Orlando campus, but I also have the option of going to the Cocoa or Palm Bay campus. Which saves me money, time, and more hours to focus on studying. Having regional campuses is also great because if you see a class is filled up in the Orlando campus you have the option of taking it at a regional campus, where the classes are smaller. There is more one on one time with the professor and peers. Overall I love University of Central Florida and all the different options that are available to make everyone's lives easier.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love UCF so far!

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!
