This school is not awful, but it is nowhere near the hype that people are giving it. I remember in High School most of my friends had UCF as their #1 school and many of them would probably go in a time machine and change that providing they gave a crap about their education.

DO NOT DRINK THE KOOLAID AND BELEIVE SOME OF THESE REVIEWS. I see some idiots try to say that UCF is better than UF. LOL NO. There is no universe where a school like UCF that only gets 300 million from the government is better than a school that not only gets 1 billion from the government, but has better academic programs and student life in general. UCF is only ranked in the late 200s in university rankings while UF is in the top 50 and if you set foot on either campus, you would know that most of these reviews are half baked.

So on to why UCF is so average. Well, here is the deal with UCF. First, its a commuter college in disguise. How can you tell? The school is near Orlando, which means that many people commute from all the suburbs near by. Orlando is not like Tallahassee or Gainsville to where the schools were purposely built to be away from everything else. Orlando is decent for finding jobs, but the city is devoid of culture. Orlando is not a terrible city, but its no Spain or New York. Your not going to find a ton of diversity in this city.

The second average thing about UCF is the education itself. The university is mainly a Space/Technology research institution, since the university mainly gets grants to do research for these things due to the location being so close to the NASA base in Cape Canaveral. This means that most of the other programs are either average or crap. There are some alright programs like Psychology and Hospitality and Management, but there is not a large diversity of stable programs that will help you after graduate.

What I mean the programs being crap is that the university wont provide a ton of undergraduate opportunities to do any serious research or work with any professionals. I hear retards say "well its what you make of it", no dumbass, any good university will give you your moneys worth and prepare you to have a half way decent paying job/career when you get out. At UCF, your pretty much on your own, which means that unless your in a well established program at the university, your better off either going to a CC or doing some degree online at any other Florida college for your moneys worth.

Now lets talk about the stuff that kind of matters and kinda doesnt matter like the general student attitude, greek life, athletics, basically all the social stuff. The student body is pretty god damn annoying. Its hard to take anyone from UCF seriously when the school pushes so many god damn puns. Knight this, knight that, how about shut the knight up haha? Seriously, its toxic how UCF pushes its students to act this way since it makes the students look like they are mentally handicapped. I also hate how UCF tries to sell its "one of the biggest universities in america". This is more of a problem than it is a good thing. People say UCF is the next UF, no its more like the next Arizona State since the school doesnt give a shit who gets in and is trying to grow to make money, not to become a legitament institution.

Speaking about everything else though, Greek Life is horrible since its incredibly unstable. Frats and Sororities are constantly getting in trouble and Greek Life is constantly suspended. Athletics, well they are a lost art too. UCF isnt in a Power 5 Football Conference so they basically dont matter since they cant ever go to the championship game. They suck at all other sports, so theres nothing to compensate for their mediocre football program.

So all that is the bad, what is the good? Well UCF is easy to get into if your not coming out of College. Its also easy to get into the Graduate Programs. The campus looks decent, the housing in the area is not terrible expensive, there is a lot of good places to eat, theres the Orlando Magic downtown which is cool if you like basketball, its nearby a reasonable Metropolitian city, and its not terribly expensive to attend.

Now if your content with all that and don't think that there is any opportunity outside of UCF, by all means attend. Just dont expect UCF to be larger than life like some of these half baked reviews claim. UCF is a pretty middle in the road school. I would say that this is a decent place to get an AA at and a decent place if your looking to get an easy degree and dont care about your educational journey or connecting with any human beings or give a crap about life after college. UCF is basically a degree mill, nothing more, nothing else.

Online the university appears to be a great opportunity and looks appealing. After attending for one year the only good thing I can say about this school is that it is a beautiful campus. The advisors and other departmental staff are very rude. On general the professors are moderately kind. The math department is TERRIBLE. You will end up teaching yourself the material. Every math instructor will tell you that is incorrect because you are required to spend three hours a week in the math lab and that the assistant can answer your questions. To an extent, this is a moderate point, but as a student, you are paying to take a class in my opinion your instructor should actually take time to teach you, not spend fifty minutes going over pointless iclicker questions. Additionally I visited junior colleges that have much better chemistry lab equipment. I would not recommend anyone who is serious about their education attend this university.

The only reason I was compelled to write a review is because I feel bad for anyone that is trying to decide where to go to school and may not go because of the junk that posted here.

I will be graduating this year and can honestly say there is absolutely nothing wrong with going to UCF - it's a good school in a good city and you should be proud of the fact that you are there. The one persistent problem the school seems to have is overcrowding and large class size, but that is mostly for your gen-ed's (I took most at Valencia which I suggest to save $). Even for the large classes the professor's are good, and if you are engaged and put forth efforts in the class you will learn a lot and do fine.

A lot of the people posting here think it's the school job to wipe their butt, which UCF is NOT going to do. Keep in mind it's your responsibility to look at your major requirements and figure out what courses you need to take, it's your responsibility to make appointments with the advisers, it's your responsibility to pay your tuition on time, etc. If you expect all this stuff to get done for you, you will fail (and you deserve to).

I think UCF is one of the best values in the country when it comes to a major university. I am taking 6 classes this semester and my tuition bill (with fees) was less than $4000...once again that's 6 classes!
