University of Central Florida

Nov 9, 2023

I enjoyed my UCF experience. Excellent College of Education! I lived on campus and I commuted. Because it has such a large enrollment, it's important to either find a group of friends you click with if living on campus, or have a strong support system if commuting. Otherwise, yes, as one reviewer stated, you could feel like a number. But I am very proud of my UCF degree. Go Knights!

Great, classic college town, but we could drive to Chicago in an hour or so if you wanted a big city day.
