Have you heard of beehive fences?
Matthew Rudolph, 31, always knew he wanted a career that involved animals, but he never envisioned using tiny honeybees to help save the world’s largest land mammal. Still, that’s exactly what the University of Central Florida biology student has been doing for the past six months, working alongside a team of international researchers in Kenya […]

The first time biology associate professor Barb Sharanowski encountered insects, they terrified her. “When I was a kid in Ontario, Canada, my older brother used to throw them at me – gosh, it was just basically torture,” she said. “But as I grew older I overcame that fear, and curiosity took hold. I learned that […]

When Scott Frost was hired on Dec. 1, the very first question he faced from a media member related to UCF’s jerseys, and the questions eventually piled up from fans as well. A little more than five months later, UCF and Nike have announced a brand new look for the Black and Gold starting for […]

1 in 5 professors here provide a quality experience. As a Computer Engineering undergrad with 5 classes left I will say this has been the most ridiculously challenging commitment I have ever gone through. This university will not hold your hand. You will spend tons of money. This university will try everything in its power to break you (if your major is worth anything). But maintain a strong will and after being chewed up and spat out several times, you might just land a career afterwards. At least there are jobs now.

Cool place! I don't attend here, but it definitely has been fun visiting. Their degree programs are great from what I hear and their engineering program is superb.

I started at a different Florida university and, after 2 years, transferred to UCF because they had the major I changed to. As a strong student, I was worried about the quality of education at UCF given its large size. I was quickly proved wrong--I have achieved so much because of my education at UCF. Of course, you get what you put into it; no one is going to hold your hand here (and that's how it should be to prepare us for the professional world). That being said, there are SO many resources for students to take advantage of, from internships to diversity services to student organizations. The age-old advice still stands: GET INVOLVED! You'll meet people so many people that way. It was very easy to get involved, even as a transfer student, and the student body is diverse, open, and intelligent overall. I always enjoyed meeting people and hearing the incredible things they were doing. The general ed classes do tend to be large, but once you're in your major, you get smaller classes and individual attention. All of my classes were taught by professionals in the field, and my advisors and professors were always helpful and knowledgeably. I truly enjoyed my time at UCF, and know that I am where I am today because of the education I received here.

ucf is a horrible bad school- yes the campus is nice and pretty and they can make it bigger and bigger- but the education SUCKS. worse, the teachers are the worst- arrogant scumbags. they are inferior but think they're above others. usually arrogant low lifes who abuse students for stupid things. UCF has the worst professors, and the students are nasty immature childish idiots. It's true it's a big gym. it is not for serious education and they are abusive to good students. I had a teacher named belinda boyd, and this wench worked in the theater dept. She was abusive to students and abused me badly. I took her abuse the entire time, but I missed ONE day literally of class, and b/c i missed one day, this creature kicked me out of the class. I tried to file a complaint against this psychopath boyd but nothing was done. The professors here can harass and abuse anyone they want. It's the worst school. People who say it's good are usually idiots or mediocre people or students. Only stupid people succeed at ucf. the smart and better ones stay away from this craphole

UCF is a great university. Lots of options and opportunites no matter what you want to study. Like most large universities, you have to make your own way, or you can get lost in the shuffle, but you will find great opportunities here. Great campus, but terrible parking.

UCF is great! This school has a degree for just about everyone in fields across both the sciences and the arts. There are so many opportunities to be a part of clubs and they're a a great way to develop networking skills before you get out into the "real world". The facilities here are awesome, especially the buildings belonging to the science majors. The arts buildings definitely need some updating, however the music and and theater programs both have great facilities. There are various food options on and off campus and most of them are great tasting and affordable. When you're not eating, there's probably some event going on somewhere, you just have to know where to look. One of my favorite things to do here is group exercise, classes that are held all throughout the day every day of the week. Aside from that, SGA has tons of events throughout the year that students are encouraged to attend. Some of the biggest events that occur are Concert Knight and Comedy Knight, as well as Universal Knights. One the smaller scale, SGA and other organizations frequently have movie nights and weekly workshops that help students to prepare for life outside of college. This is a really cool place to be. As long as you're a friendly person and optimistic, you'll have a really great time.

U Can't Finish The Muslims are a 'country unto themselves' and the professors will hold 'special' meetings or schedule 'special' lab time only for believers of the Koran. Professor Mortazawi did this regularly for our EEL-5555 course. One day, myself and the only other 'American' student in the class - the only NON-MUSLIMS - happened to be walking by the electronics lab on our way to another class. Lo and behold - ALL the other students in the class - ALL OF THEM MUSLIM - were inside with the professor working to get their homework and lab assignments done. And then-Department Head Wasfy Mikhael didn't see anything wrong with it. See where I'm going with this? YOUR tax dollars in action - making sure 'Americans' get the short end of the stick, so (Prof.) Parveen Wahid can say, "Americans don't have the cultural background to excel at (RF Engineering)." Thanks a lot, Professor Bauer - YOU SELLOUT. In your face, I make WAY MORE MONEY THAN YOU DO!!

I just graduated from UCF, and I have to say the campus is really beautiful. The whole reason why I chose to go to this school in the first place was because of how nice the campus was. The people that attend the school, however, are less than to be desired. I look back without really having any emotionally ties from this school. it was a solid educational experience, and I learned a lot, and received the internships and experience I needed in order for me to be prepared for the real world, but I did not graduate with any true friends from this school. I tend to get a log with most people, and was really popular in high school, but when I came to UCF meeting people was extremely difficult. The size of the campus has some measure for this reasoning, but it's also the people who do not really want to take the initiative to meet other people. It's really surprising that within such a huge campus the majority of people do not want to branch out and talk to other students, and if you try starting a conversation with someone they look at you like you're the weird one.Overall, I was a transfer student who did not have anyone to go up with in the beginning, so this may had some effect as to why it was more difficult for me even when I tried to get involved, but it still was not successful. I still say it was a great educational experience, and no matter what you will learn a lot.
