This year’s graduates exemplified service — opening a student-run free clinic and leading medical mission trips to the Dominican Republic in addition to their military service.
The College of Medicine graduated 78 new Physician Knights Friday, the third class of UCF-trained doctors in the college’s young history. The new physicians are artists, scientists, athletes and solders. One trained to be a professional figure skater before entering medical school; two are brothers a year apart who waited a year so they could […]

“Traditionally there aren’t that many people with mobility impairments in science because of the barriers. It’s a whole new world of opportunities that were closed off.”
UCF doctoral student Michael Lodge uses a $1 million electron microscope to conduct groundbreaking research on graphene sheets the width of a single atom. But from the seat of his wheelchair, he’s never been able to see through the viewing port of the microscope, and had to depend on his colleagues for help. That changed […]

Laura Puentes' ultimate goal is to develop biological therapeutics that can target diseased tissue or tumors without affecting healthy organs.

As one of the 10 State University System students in Florida selected to receive a Frost Scholarship, Puentes will […]

“I never was really trying to be the youngest graduate, but being such a young graduate is something I’m proud of. I’m just a normal alumni.”
Adrian Gilliam, 17, will graduate from UCF this week at an age before most students even start attending college. Then again, he’s always been ahead of the curve. When Gilliam was 4, he started homeschooling through Florida Virtual School, an online public school that allows students to learn at their own pace, and at 13 […]

I was fortunate to have the opportunity to attend the University of Central Florida's off campus Microsoft Certified Systems Engineering program which included seven categories of valuable importance for it's time. I will never forget the importance of several of the principles I've learned in the program. Today the upgraded program is Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert and includes everything from Server Infrastructure to Business Intelligence and I look forward to upgrading through U.C.F. because of the quality of their instructors and the professional environment provided.

if your a single mother but are not over the age of 25 and you are not legally married dont go to this school the financial services dept does not help you with anything. horrible experience would much have rather stayed at valencia or gone to a community college for all the trouble and non assistance provided.

I will graduate from the College of Business Administration in 2015 as a Marketing Major and a member of the Professional Selling Program. I have had nothing but positive experiences with UCF, all of which I earned through hard work and dedication to my education. This school is like most things, you reap what you sow. Come to UCF and sow high quality seeds deep in this fertile ground; you too will see flowers bloom all around you.

Do not let your child go to UCF. I have been tricked into thinking UCF was serious about education and robbed of my opportunity to attend a legitimate university. UCF is not really a university. It's just a really big gym that happens to teach some courses. I enjoy the UCF gym but the university desperately (urgently) needs legitimate study locations that are open unconditionally before they spend another cent on the gym or trips to Universal studios and etc. Its literally a mission to find a seat in any of the two teeny tiny study spots and impossible to find quiet anywhere on campus unless you walk into the forest or something to study. It's disturbing to know that while the library is understaffed and closes at 7pm on Friday and Saturday, the gym is fully staffed and open until 12am all weekend. It really shouldn't matter if students don't enjoy studying and rather have funds go towards a larger gym, this is supposed to be a academic institution and funding needs to go towards library renovations and study locations before the extracurricular resources. Its like I rather buy a new laptop than pay for rent, but I pay for rent because its a necessity. A gym is not a necessity. I'm here to get an education but the university is making it a near impossible task no matter how driven I am because they do not have enough academic resources and facilities to accommodate for the 60,000 students that attend here. Basically, every student here are given 1/3 of the learning resources they would've got at any other public university. I have tried to contact many officials and representatives and even had a meeting with SGA president about this issue. Nothing came out of it. It's hopeless. If you want to get away from your parents, go to a overly nice gym, and party all the time, come to UCF and waste away four years without learning a thing. If you want to get a education, go to any other university but this one.
