As an older college student, I don't share the same experiences. I live in my own apartment which is about 40 minutes away from campus. I can say that with this being my second semester, I've enjoyed my time here and the resources available to me. The additional help for the courses I am taking, the advising support, and the facilities available to students, are incredible. They are all there to help you understand and succeed. I would say making more information accessible to new and incoming students regarding extracurricular programs would help to improve my experience.
More information is shared with new and incoming students regarding activities and programs that are non-academic related such as fraternities/sororities, clubs, and organizations.
I loved the welcoming atmosphere and the variety of events taking place there. There’s a club for everyone and they offer a plethora of interesting classes.
My academic advisor was not kind.
UCF offers extremely diverse academic opportunities. Their abundant amount of career pathways allows for a variety of exploratory electives.
UCF unfortunately when it comes to special circumstances is not very accommodating nor aware of the support to provide. There is no follow up nor follow through nor concern for special circumstances.
There are plenty of resources at your disposal
The people responsible for guiding you are often not motivated or seem to be annoyed when you need their assistance
I transferred to UCF from another University and even though UCF is a huge university I feel as though the professors here actually care about my success as a student. This was something that I did not find to be true at my previous university, I felt as though they only cared about upholding their reputation and not about us as students, so I am so grateful I transferred and I love it here at UCF!
UCF has a huge student body so it lacks the intimacy that you get at smaller institutions with smaller class sizes, but I haven't found that to be too much of an issue.
It was a cool school and I did grow as a person, but if all you want is to start a great career, then I don't think there's a lot UCF can do for you that smaller nearby colleges can't.
Ever-increasing tuition costs and terrible, over-priced dormitories (both on and off-campus.)
