It's #GivingTuesday! It's a chance to have your gift directly impact another Knight's life. 
A five-year-old grassroots initiative to make the Tuesday after Thanksgiving about giving back to the people, organizations and causes close to our hearts, Giving Tuesday has quickly grown into a global celebration of generosity, a wonderful counterpoint to Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Research university set on 1,415 acres with a lake & woodlands.- Google
"The facilities are well maintained, but they should invest in more parking!"
"You definitely spend more money on living expenses rather than tuition."

Just ppassed my first semester and I have to say, parking is terrible, resources are great if you can figure out how to even get them, too big to even know where to go half the time, classes are crowded and prepare to teach yourself and navigate your way through pages and websites of all kinds for different courses, if you want to LEARN something go elsewhere. If you just want to pass and struggle while doing so without really learning content then by all means this is the university for you. Oh and good luck finding the classes you need.

The only reason I'm giving it one star is because I'm unable to give none. This is the absolute WORST school to attend! All they want is money. They don't care about your well being as a student or getting you through college. Their advisors are trash, they tell you stuff to get you in and out ... their professors are not any better. I've had the worse experience at this university. Semester after semester I have to constantly turn in unnecessary forms that hold up my account and whenever I call to get information on anything I'm always told "I don't know" or "I think" this is a sorry excuse for a university. I had to stay an extra year because I wasn't informed until the last minute that I needed a certain class to graduate. I was at valencia for 2 years and NEVER encountered these problems. But as soon as I transferred over it's been problem after problem, hurdle after hurdle in order to even attend a semester. So save your time and money and go to another school.

I completed an engineering undergrad degree from UCF. I would not recommend UCF engineering if your goal is to actually learn useful things for a future career (computer science/engineering is an exception, and I've heard good things). From the first freshman engineering courses (some with hundreds of students), the atmosphere is one of professors against the students. It feels like their primary job and goal is to trick you and fail you, not help you truly learn or succeed. Perhaps this actually is the goal, since probably 70% fail out from engineering in the first 2 years. In higher level courses, good luck trying to understand your English-as-a-4th-language professors. And what they teach is 98% how to solve high order math problems, which unless your goal is research and academia, is a great waste of effort and time. I quickly forgot almost all of it, and I use practically nothing from my college courses in my engineering career. There was no practical knowledge taught, and nothing about how anything works. I instead have taught myself "real" engineering through my job, and thankfully have been able to overcome the inferior "education" and succeed despite it, not because of it. Another note, in lower and mid level courses (math, physics, gen-ed and such), there is an utterly tremendous difference between multiple sections of the same course, depending on what professor you choose. Some teach well and most students do well, others fail 90% of the students, some keep the workload light, others burden you like you're a PhD student. I STRONGLY recommend vetting your class sections/professors carefully; ask around beforehand. It makes all the difference. On the other side of things (worth an extra star), the campus is beautiful, and the available student activities are plentiful. For anyone attending UCF in general, I also highly recommend keeping a super-cheap old bike on campus to help you get around.

Graduated from UCF and I loved every minute of being there. The facilities are amazing and the school is always working to provide the students with more resources, opportunities, and activities. Most of my professors were absolutely amazing, and as long as you show that you're dedicated and willing to work, they will work with you to help make sure that you're passing and understanding the material in the courses. The actual campus is gorgeous and they work hard at maintaining all of the buildings. My biggest complaint is the parking because there's never a place to park so I would HIGHLY recommend finding other modes of transportation ( I took the campus shuttle which was convenient and timely). The staff there is always very helpful and I never really had problems with speaking to an adviser or talking to the financial aid office, etc. Attending this school was an excellent college experience. Just be prepared to work hard and take responsibility for your schedule, etc.

Absurd unnecessary policies that only serve to hinder students from finishing or even finishing at all. The best thing is they are making you pay for it. Thank you UCF
