Best thing about UCF is definitely the location. For example, event management majors have great resources because they are near amusement parks, high scale hotels, etc. Pre-med majors have numerous hospitals and medical professionals offices around as well. One thing I would change would be how people stereotype UCF. People always think that UCF stands for U Can't Finish, but I personally think that they are saying that because they know UCF is one of the largest schools in the country and its building its reputation every day. I think UCF is breaking down the negative assumption through our athletics, academics, and our new medical school. A lot of people react pleased and say good things when I tell them i got to UCF. The people around Orlando definitely support UCF and vice versa. On campus, I usually spend most of my time in the Student Union, various buildings for classes, the gym, and library.
Some professors know my name, but only if its a small classroom setting. My favorite class varies, but currently it is Biology and my least favorite is Chemistry. Class participation is common in the classes, depending on what we're doing, but overall, the class participates and interacts with the teacher. Some students are competitive in the classes, but they're just looking out for themselves and wanting to get the best grade possible. Many students within the science classes that I am are very determined to get the best grade possible, but it helps for their GPA.
I think ethnic students would feel out of place at UCF, but recently I say that perspective is changing. There are many ethnic organizations at UCF, promoting great events to try to make everyone feel included. most UCF students are from Florida, but not all from mainly Orlando. Just everywhere around Florida. There are organizations that are politically aware/active, and students that are interested are more than welcome to join to those organizations.
