3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There are a lot of students that go here so you will hear about robberys and other situations. But the University does there best to make the students safe and I have never felt unsafe while being on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The academics here are very good. Some of the classes are hard but if you want to learn you definitely will. They also have a lot of on campus resources to keep your grades up. Most of the professors are very good.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Off-capmus dining services are excellent. There are many options close to campus allowing for a larger variety. The cost of most places are average but I feel the restaurants should provide more student discounts and meal packages.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus for the most part. However, the crimes that take place, usually at night, are a little scary. The school should take more actions to fix this. Overall, UCF has good security and i feel comfortable on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather is usually pretty nice but in Florida it rains a lot. The rain makes me sleepy and lazy to the point where I don't want to do any work or go to class.

5 College Senior

Academics: Great Programs – UCF has top ranked engineering and counseling programs. The Counselor Education program is the #12 program in the country. The Hospitality College is also widely known and acclaimed.

4 College Senior

Academics: I am working on my Master's in Marriage and Family Therapy. The program is excellent. The faculty is always available for consultation and guidance; Doctoral students are great role models; and your peers are ambitious.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: People are very concerned about fitness at UCF, so they are often working out. The Rec Center is always packed full of vibrant young college guy sand girls looking to maintain their figure and look their best.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The on campus housing options are good but only if you are really sure you want to live on campus. It is very convenient to live close to everything but only freshman really live on campus and not everyone is mature so you would just have to deal with that part. The dorms and small and crowded, but they are furnished nicely and whenever you need anything maintenance is always there to help,

5 College Junior

Diversity: I think the diversity is vast on campus. There are hundreds of clubs for every group you could possibly think of and for people with all kinds of different interests and hobbies.

3 College Junior

Athletics: We are good in all of our divisions but we are obviously not in the highest ranked divisions either.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Most of the teams are pretty good but don't always get the amount of student support that they deserve.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Orlando has lots to offer. Many different scenes not to far away. Campus life is great.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Really no issues in getting the financial aid i needed.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: Availability and Speed – The computers are available at several locations and are very easy to locate and acccess. Computers also have relatively good speed. If you have your own computer, it is a plus, but if you don't, it is very easy to find one to use.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are many options and varieties of ethnicity food that range from fast food to sit-down dinning. They're all within 10 minutes or less from UCF, and their are different options from buffets, vegan, and student restaurants, etc. as well.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is moderately sized for a campus as large as UCF but it definitely does not take over the social scene. There is no major push to have everyone in a frat or sorority, even during rush weeks in the fall and spring. You are also not judged for being involved or choosing not to be involved. This is a large enough school where there is a group for everybody!

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Because UCF is still pretty new (50 years old) we are still trying to establish ourselves in the world of sports. As far as football for this past season, we were 10-4 and are ranked 16th in the nation with the most alumni on active NFL playoff rosters! I think those are pretty good stats!

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms at UCF are not the best, but they are pretty good compared to those I have see at other colleges. The newest ones are Nike/Hercules/Neptune (opening Fall 2013). But I would say the most social dorms are Libra and Apollo if you are looking for an environment where everyone hangs out with each other, doing frequent movie/video game nights or just run around outside tossing a frisbee at midnight! People who live in those dorms say that where they lack in "nice-ness" they make up for in the bonding that goes on. And, by the way, these are all freshmen dorms.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: UCF police is really good at it's job. They offer SEPS which is something that you can call and will drive you to your car if it's dark and you feel unsafe walking. We also have a service where you can register your stuff (like electronics) for free with the police department so if it ever gets stolen, they can find it right away.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The only thing UCF is really strict on is Academic Integrity, everything else seems to be pretty lenient. Just do your own work and don't cheat and you'll be fine. The cops are pretty cool about the drinking as well, just be responsible. Oh, but watch where you park because you WILL get a ticket, but don't worry tooo much because they're easy to dispute.

4 College Freshman

Weather: It's pretty hot on some days, but most days its very nice weather. Occasional rain makes walking across our wide open campus sometimes annoying but other than that it's good. It can get cold here as well but if you're from any where outside of florida, it will probably feel good.

5 College Freshman

Academics: I have not had one professor who wasn't helpful and great at their job. The offer many classes and have many openings. The education program, specifically, is very welly done and is a great experience, especially if you get the opportunity to be apart of STEP.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek Life is prominent on our campus but you don't feel forced to join. They're very nice people and are very helpful if thats what interests you. If you want to be active on campus and make friends quickly, its the way to go. Everyone I know in a sorority has always benefited from it.

4 College Freshman

Majors: It is easy enough to get into the Accounting major, once you give it a little work. You have to finish your general education classes and a list of classes to be admitted to the College of Business Administration and from there you are welcome to any of the Business majors.

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!
