Hi! My name is Adeolu Orogade and I am a junior majoring in Biology. I attended Zamani College (a high school). A class that I really enjoyed at UCF was Philosophy. It required a lot of reasoning and is one of the classes where discussion about topics in class are interesting. Although I have different positive experiences with the professors that have taught me, two professors had a great impact to me at my stay at UCF. Dr. Miles, who taught me Organic I and II, continues to inspire perseverance and excellence in the academic life. Mrs. Rhonda Nelson, one of my very first professors at UCF taught me Composition I and II. She showed me through her actions, warm words and evaluations that adherence to rules are crucial to succeed. I cannot talk about my years so far at UCF without mentioning this program, EXCEL. GEMS, in particular, have helped me to build strong relationships with people with and outside my major. Involvement in this program, I believe, will provide a great support during the academic years. When I am not studying, I love to watch shows and musicals, read novels and hang out with friends. “”I am sure you have heard this billions of times (if possible) but do not wait for the last minute to get things done. I agree some classes requires less time spent when compared to other classes but you will be amazed at how overwhelming doing many last minute things will affect you. Most importantly, make sure you relax once in a while and make the best of your college experience.””
