The University of Central Florida has lots to offer students from various cultures, that said, it is not without its flaws. The Biomedical Sciences program exists with little to no advising opportunities. There is one, unnamed, advisor for the entire department and they don’t meet with students outside of extreme conditions. Finding research opportunities can be a challenge; the research portal is rarely updated and most postings on it have already ended by the time they appear on the lists. Classes are large and professors are overworked and underpaid. These all can amount to students slipping through the cracks and falling behind on their degrees.
However, being such a large school also has its perks. There are students from every part of the world and many events to share and learn about each other’s cultures. There are multiple large companies that recruit new hires and interns directly from UCF campuses, making post graduation job searches that much easier. Weekly market days at the student union allow students with business to find new customers and bring a welcome sense of community to the large campus.
It can be easy to get lost along the way but if you get involved in smaller organizations within the University (of which there are hundreds to choose from), you can create a community that can help you achieve your goals.View more
So far I have loved my time at UCF. The professors feel like they actually care and want you to succeed. They pour their heart and soul into assignments and the courses to ensure you get the best experience.View more
I liked how we were given a lot of opportunities to create projects in groups because that is how this field operates outside of school. Most of the students are really friendly and are almost always willing to help someone out if they need it.View more
UCF is a good learning facility, It is just very big and easy to get lost. I would recommend it to anyone though they have a lot of on campus activities and benefits for students and things to get involved in and help with your major or career choice. Everyone that works there is very helpful and kind. The school looks very nice, and is very clean.View more
