What Students Are Saying

3.88 Average Rating
With over 50,000 students at the University of Central Florida, it is easy to feel like a small fish in a big pond. But, with all of the opportunities afforded by this institution and all of the resources available, a little effort on the student side of things makes UCF a really great place to kick-start a career at. Quite simple: I love it here.
