One of the things I love the most at UCF is the campus. The main Orlando campus is built so that you do not take more than 10 minutes to walk from class to class. As a hospitality student, I also love that UCF offers on-going shuttles between the main campus and the Rosen College. Also, all UCF shuttle transportation is free for students so if you do not have a car (like me), you do not need to worry. Weekly shuttles are also offered to a local Public to stock up on food and goods so that is also very convenient for students without their own means of transportation.
I did not personally take any courses online but I did have to go through the orientation process online. Although I do not think UCF handled it perfectly, I do commend the staff members for being able to guide thousands of incoming students strictly online.
So far, I love UCF! With the athletics, food, nature, people, it feels like the right place for me. There is nothing I haven't liked so far. I look forward to moving in with my roommates and creating so many memories. Go knights!
I am enrolled in 2 online summer classes and am excited to take them. I can't wait to live on campus, get involved with student life and be at UCF. With the remote learning system, UCF has made everything so easy and manageable.
My online experience was difficult at times but also very rewarding. A lot of professors are more than help to help you and adapt to your needs while others don’t really care. I think it all depends on the course and the way about which the professors decide to teach it.
I liked how inviting and fun the campus life was when starting there as an out-of-state student. There is always something to do and there are so many resources that you have at your disposal. The people are also incredibly nice and always want to help.
I love the environment and the school atmosphere. The campus is nice and it is all centralized around the Student Union.
Something that is tough is the parking, so try not to arrive to campus late or else it would be hard to find parking
I have been attending UCF for three years now and I have loved ever moment of it. the campus is very inclusive and no one ever feels left out. the students there are fun and respectable and the community is amazing.
