2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I'm Not Sure – Since I live off campus, I spend of my free at home studying and exercising so I hardly know what the Greek social scene is like at my campus.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: If you have classes in the morning, you better come early. However, as the day goes on, the parking situation becomes lenient.

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: I'm not sure specifically for scholarships, but I know anytime I've gone to the financial aid office, they have been very rude. They are just very short with you and not helpful at all. I know from personal experience that paying for college is very difficult but I would suggest any outside help from websites or the community. I find it very difficult to find scholarships available through the college itself, especially if you family is middle, or even low-middle income. If you're family makes more than thirty grand a year, it's very hard to get any federal assistance.

4 College Student

Nightlife: there is nice bar in downtown and there are free buses to go there at weekend

5 College Student

Weather: there is no better place than Florida. especial in winter

4 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: there are several spots that not far away from school and they provide decent Japanese food and Vietnamese food. Also there are nice restaurants to have whole food and special sandwiches. But the else are just the common fast food chains. However, non of these places will have discount to us students.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The one I live in (Sterling) is garbage! They now have new management because they only had a 30% renewal average which says a lot. They are dirty and your packages never get to you in time. I put A because U-House is amazing and so is Orion on Orpington. Best things about all off campus housing is the shuttle that brings you too and from school so you don't have to go through the hassle of finding a parking spot.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I received a good amount of financial aid and I've applied for scholarship after scholarship and I haven't received on from my school yet.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Some of the organizations on campus really try to promote game day and they give away free things if you also try to help promote the games!

4 College Freshman

Majors: I haven't taken many classes for my major yet, but so far I really enjoy it.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: A lot of my fellow students use a bicycle, long board, or skateboard to get around the university. I guess it is easier to commute on this large campus. Our student body seems to take interest in theme parks seeing how there are a few in our area. Concerts and parties in general are also a popular past time. There are a lot of students interested in fitness so you will often find them running or working out between classes.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is convenient but not always cheap. Being on campus it is easy to be invited to partys, workshops, and events. So it is easy to make connections not only socially, but also academically. Living on campus is the best opportunity for networking.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am a Transfer student so I am new to the campus and don't know much about the Greek Life just yet. But what I have heard so far is that they through a few parties and events, and some former members enjoyed the elements of brother or sisterhood. Although I don't know much about the Greek influence I still manage to see them get involved in a lot of things on campus.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: UCF has a very strict drug policy. Smoking on campus in public is frowned upon by the students. Doesn't necessarily mean that they don't do it themselves on their free time. Drinking is the most popular activity on campus and highly tolerated by UCF. If a student has had too much to drink at a bar or somewhere else on campus, there is contact information on the back of the student id that has a number for the campus taxi that will come by free of charge to pick you up in an effort to prevent drunk driving.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Plenty of off-campus housing communities to choose from. The only downside is cost. Orlando is a money sucking city, so cost comes with the territory. Overall, safety is average. Can't account for every idiot that decides to do something stupid. High population unfortunately calls for high chance of meeting an expendable member of society. Attractions and lifestyle is great around off and on campus housing. Plenty of malls and restaurants to choose from. Along with Disney World and the beach close by, UCF is a prime location for activity.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: UCF is one of the most diverse schools in the nation because of its vast size as a campus. Second overall in the nation considering campus size. There are numerous organizations that target specific racial groups, sexual orientations, and political parties. Each organization holds events to further a cause. However, the location of UCF does attract some of the preppy kids, which comes with judgmental students. Much like any other campus. Whether we would like to admit it or not, we all judge people at some time or another.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are TONS of restaurants in the UCF area. Just driving down University blvd. alone you pass about 15 places to eat in a matter of minutes. A lot of places have student discounts for things but you have to ask for it. Even if they assume you are a student they cant give it to you or offer unless you ask. If you are a vegetarian or just really enjoy diverse salads, Greens and grille is one of my favorite places to go. Flippers pizza is also a good one to go and hang out with some friends. It's always a lively place!

3 College Junior

Weather: During the fall and spring the weather is nice. Summer is hot. It's Central Florida. Expect humidity, cold buildings to counteract the heat, and sweating.

2 College Junior

Parking: Parking permit at the main campus is too expensive and not always guaranteed a spot. Very fortunate to being able to take classes at the Regional Campus in Brevard County. Parking permit is super cheap and finding a parking spot is relatively easy.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are many good option for living off campus, right now i live at northgate but i am thinking about moving only because i'm trying to live with some friends. Do you research of the surrounding properties and im sure you'll find what you're looking for. Make sure you take tour but also find some one who lives that so you can get a look of what the place really looks like not just a model. Make sure you have a particular list of question you want answered. Price wise you can find places from the high 400s to 700s or you take over a sublease which could save you a lot.

4 College Freshman

Majors: For the most part getting into my Health Science major didn't require any abnormal processes. At orientation you could pick what your major was and if you were still undecided then you could wait but by your sophomore year you have to declare one. I definitely recommend speaking to your academic adviser because they can provide some good insight as to which route you would like to take.

4 College Student

Computers: The computer labs at UCF are usually filled with students, but, aside from that, the labs are up to date and functional.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Overall the food around campus is fairly good. Knightros especially has a lot of quality to offer. The menus there change every night and the cooking is superb.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: The parking on campus must be looked from outside the box. The University of Central Florida is one of the largest colleges in the nation. This means that around late mornings and early afternoons, you have to leave pretty early if you want to find a spot and get to your class on time. All in all its fairly manageable, but you must practice time management and know which areas get crowded first.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: There are a ton of scholarships at the University of Central Forida, the only problem is that most of them have pretty specific requirements. The good news is that you will always find at least one scholarship to apply for, and you definitely should.

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!
