Overall

UCF offers a very unique college experience for its students. The school is located in a prime location and allows for students to best utilize their potential in networking with surrounding companies and organizations.

Academics

UCF has an established engineering program which is what I plan on studying in college. Like many state universities, many of the general education classes contain an abundant amount of students, which is to be expected due to the nature of the school and higher education in general.

College Life

UCF is located in the heart of Orlando, thereby providing for a thriving atmosphere to be involved in, including but not limited to Disneyworld, Universal Studios, along with being a D-1 school in athletics, including a nationally recognized football team.

Overall

What I like the most about UCF, is the feeling of being in a well known diverse area. Orlando is the home of the University of Central Florida, the most beautiful area where you will occasionally see tourist. Tourist would periodically bring a multicultural atmosphere in Orlando, FL and that's my reason why the Orlando area is a diverse city. Having a diverse upbringing could easily enhance your learning expenses by experiencing other settings than your own. If you're a prospective student wanting to attend UCF, I would advise you to be open to try out different things in life because it might help you out in the long run. LETS GO KNIGHTS!

Academics

University of Central Florida is said to be the second largest campus of the nation, due to the very large selective and large number of students, classes are fairly large in size. As you're approaching to be an incoming freshman you will have a classroom size of about 200 students. But as you began to approach as an upperclassmen you would eventually have a decrease in size of the classrooms to mainly focus more on your major.

College Life

There are numerous of clubs and organizations in the Orlando UCF main campus, due to it's notorious and very diverse surroundings.They have everything ranging from being a LEAD Scholar, playing intramural sports, Excel program, and etc. All programs strive to have one common goal which is to help the community and enhance the citizens to be more productive citizens. By doing this UCF programs will occasionally have weekly events on campus and getting more people involved with there community.

Overall

The campus is fantastic. Although I have not visited it myself (yet!) I have had the pleasure of seeing pictures of the school on my friend's internet blogs and hearing detailed accounts of the campus. The University of Central Florida is a fairly new school and most of it's accommodations are brand spanking new! The Recreation and Wellness Center at UCF is beautiful and just another plus to the already gorgeous campus!

Academics

The University of Central Florida has exactly my major! I plan to study medicine and health sciences, alongside biology. While the classes can be quite large - the school is the second larget school in the country - most of the classes designate to your major are quite reasonable and it is easy to get help from your professors.

College Life

There are a plethora of clubs at UCF! The campus is large, therefore there is a ton of security around at all times, including RA's and other personnel. Our football team is coming up and it's great that our stadium is in walking distance from classes and our dorms! The Greek Like is great, too! There is a bunch of sororities and fraternities on campus and they are all available at your viewing pleasure on the UCF website!

Overall

University of Central Florida offers disability services, student life opportunities, and there is plenty of internship opportunities for potential graduate UCF students due to the surrounding area. It is located in the middle of a very popularized and tourist community. Everything a student need to live is on campus. UCF is not for everyone but on the contrary if you're a prospective student that loves a campus that is large, very diverse setting, and offer numerous of free activities for students. I would suggest contemplating this school as being your next future. Let's Go Knights!

Academics

University of Central Florida classroom sizes varies as you begin to start classes that are affiliated with your major. But as a undergraduate your prerequisite classes have about a max of 100 students. UCF offers several different programs ranging from Accounting BSBA - College of Business Administration from Advertising/Public Relations BA - College of Sciences. As a senior at UCF, workload is alot heavier than any other grade, since now you are focusing on your major. This is beneficial for yourself and for your professors because you would have more time for any needed information on assignments.

College Life

University of Central Florida is the second largest facility in the nation. Due to the increase of population UCF is big on student life opportunities such as; there are several recreational activities for all students, they offer numerous of free activities for students on weekends, and UCF up holds the biggest recreational and wellness fitness center in the state of Florida. Campus safety is superb. Since UCF is very large in size and highly selective they must have there own Police Department.
