3 College Senior

Drug Safety: I've never been pressured to do drugs or drink. I've been offered to go out and drink, but most classmates believe I'm of age because I'm in senior classes. Never really heard of drugs on campus, but I dont live there. I do have friends that live in dorms that smoke though.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: I don't know. I commute to campus, so once I leave, I don't eat until I'm back in Melbourne.

3 College Senior

Weather: The summers are unbearably hot. From the ten minute walk between classes, I'm usually drenched in sweat. That's if I didn't get caught in an afternoon shower. Then my hair just looks like a matted mess.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: I don't like that everything is online. This is where I find out my dues, accept awards, and try to read their documents. Honestly, I never know how much I have to pay, and how much I'm getting back. Still, everything gets worked out and paid for.

3 College Senior

Majors: I never had to apply to become an English major. I transferred in with 65 credits and immediately enrolled in the major's required courses.

4 College Senior

Majors: Although the workload can seem unbearable at times, at least the work is enjoyable. English-creative writing allows students to express their individual freedoms while learning the important aspects of the trade. I would suggest never taking two wring classes at the same time, because the respective assignments can seem muddled to me. Different genres, such as fiction and nonfiction, overlap. I sometimes get lost in the gray area in between when working on both stories.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is usually within walking distance, if not biking. Even still, they offer shuttles for those that don't want to provide their own transportation. Although a little pricey, the flexibility is worth it.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: I don't live on campus, and have never come in contact with campus police. I can say that the campus monitors every car, in every parking lot, every day to check for appropriate parking tags. Also, each of my classes allow for up to three unexcused absences. Any more, and the class is failed.

4 College Senior

Athletics: Even before the football team became good, students and tailgated and attended every game. Now the school spirit is through the roof.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Although we had the bomb scare last year, I've never felt unsafe on campus. I never leave my car doors unlocked, but I don't anticipate someone breaking into my car when it's parked in the garage. I'm also comfortable walking through campus alone, but I've never had to in the dark.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Campus housing is within walking distance of most classes. Many housing options are available, and it's relatively easy to apply.

5 College Sophomore

Computers: Printing is always free and readily available to all students!

Drug Safety: I don't notice drugs on campus. However, alcohol is a big focus sometimes.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: I don't really pay attention to these issues .

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Shuttles to and from campus are safe and comfortable. and the knight lynx downtown are a great addition.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I love my schools fan support!

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel mostly safe, however recently there have been some violent incidences especially in the parking garages.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Costs are college friendly with an excellent variety. There is definitely a restaurant to feed any craving.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I live in the area and go to places located around the campus often, there is a lot to chose from both during the day and at night. Most of these places are delicious and definitely worth going back too.

College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I am mostly an online students, the few times that I have been to the campus everyone has seemed to be following the rules in regards to drug and alcohol use and keeping it off of the campus. There was nothing noticeable to me while I was there.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: The few times that I have been to the campus I have seen a great diversity among the students, it is lovely to see so many people from so many backgrounds coexisting in one place.

Transportation: I am a student who lives extremely close to campus, I have never needed any other transportation to the main campus the few times that I have been there or the times I have needed to travel to the main campus.

UCF is growing by leaps and bounds. The students love to hang out, and they all know how to have a good time. There’s so much to do and there’s something for everyone. Do you really need any more reasons to go to college in Florida?

Orlando is an exciting city with tons of attractions and activities available to all. In many ways, going to school at UCF resembles a four-year vacation (Disney on Sunday, classes on Monday!). Downtown Orlando on a Friday night can, at times, seem like Mardi Gras, and City Walk on a Saturday night isn’t to be missed. Also, Floridians are welcoming and friendly and most students at UCF make friends quickly and easily. Friendly faces and sunny skies, what more could a college student ask for? The stellar academics, up-and-coming sports teams, and state-of-the-art facilities are reason enough to spend the next four years of your life at UCF; the city of Orlando is just one big fringe benefit. Come join us!
