4 College Junior

Campus Dining: I am not too fimilar with the On-campus Dining at UCF because I do not live on-campus. From what I have had and seen, it does offer a variety of choices with sever types of ethinics foods. However, if I am ever in a rush or want something convient, UCF does offer several places that is convient where I can pick up a quick snack or a cup of coffee. . From all the places I have eaten at they have been very swift in service with a good value of food too.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Being in my program is a lot of fun and not too hard.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I have not had any difficulties yet and enjoy my program.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: As a sophomore I have not had the chance to take classes for my major yet.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I plan to get an internship at a psychology firm when I am a junior or senior.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: On-campus food is average, but there are plenty of good restaurants nearby

4 College Junior

Nightlife: There are many bars around UCF which makes nightlife very exciting. Every place is 18 and older so everyone can pretty much get it. The local bars are fun and easy and if you are 21, downtown Orlando is only 20 min away. Since all the bars are close to campus its not hard deciding on where to go.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Drinking is more of the scene at UCF then a drug problem. Since there are many local bars around, it's more convenient to go out. I guess it all depends on who you hang out with.

4 College Junior

Computers: The university has many computer labs available to all students. The Student Union has the main lab in the center of campus which is the most convenient. The whole campus has wifi available so you can take your computer anywhere you want. Each computer lab has printers for your use and so does the library.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Orlando is the perfect place to be living as a college student. There are endless amounts of places to choose from at every corner. All the different restaurants and fast food places you can think of are 5-10 min from the school. Waterford is the best place to go when you are hungry because that's where most of the places are. One of my favorite places to go to is California Pizza Kitchen and right next to it is a very well know Italian ice place. The prices at all these places are very reasonable for a college student.

5 College Freshman

Campus Dining: There are many places to dine at on campus. Two of the dining halls can be used with the meal plan, and then there are many chain restaurants and other places to eat on campus.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Orlando is a very up-beat area, so with all the attractions it includes, there are also a lot of restaurants. With the variety given, off-campus dining is never boring.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: The University of Central Florida is a drug-free, no smoking campus so the Drug Safety is very high.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The atmosphere of the University of Central Florida is beautiful. It is very modern and new. The area, Orlando, is also a wonderful, populated area to be in, and there are very many attractions nearby. The students and faculty are great and the school overall is an amazing school.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: off campus has the best places that you and your friends can hang out and eat. there are variety of place with excellent food.

4 College Senior

Facilities: The teachers and tutors are excellent, they are always there to help you and they make sure that you understand the curriculum.

2 College Senior

Health & Safety: On a day to day basis I do feel safe at UCF but I did feel a little uncomfortable to be on campus when the young man was found to have plans to kill his fellow roommates on campus.

3 College Senior

Academics: I think that UCF offers many tutoring options for the the math and science classes but when it comes to you getting into your major I think they can provide better assistance.

5 College Senior

Majors: When reviewing UCF's majors, it was hard to declare one. There are a handful of majors I wish I could have chosen, but I ended up choosing Sociology. Glad that i picked this major, I truly enjoy the classes offered and the diverse professors that I have had have been wonderful!

5 College Senior

Campus Dining: Although I do not live on campus, I do live across the street in student housing apartments, but they have a variety of food options. When I am on campus for classes, there are so many options to chose from. Whether you are looking for breakfast, lunch, dinner or even dessert, there is dunkin doughnuts, smoothie king, salad bars, Chinese food, pizza, burger king, and etc.

4 College Senior

Drug Safety: Although the University has little control on what students are capable of, they do in fact try to have some substantial control. Incoming students are required to complete drugs and alcohol tutorials. unfortunately, the amount of alcohol and drugs students consume is really up to them and although a lot are underage, they still manage to get alcohol. The police around the area though are always doing their job, and enforcing the law.

5 College Senior

Athletics: School spirit here at University of Central Florida is something everyone participates in. Strolling around campus, you will find almost everyone in some sort of UCF attire. Most students or faculty either have on a sweat shirt, shirt, sweat pants, yoga pants, book bags, or even something so simple as a pencil that illustrates UCF's name. Even more, the amount of vehicles in the surrounding area that have decals on their windows, license plate frames, or even a license plate that has the UCF emblem are endless. As a proud student of UCF, I must admit that I engage in the school spirit as well!

College Sophomore

Nightlife: I really do not spend much time on the nightlife scene. I hang out with the D20Knights club (basically a bunch of people playing board games every Friday night) and the SSA (meetings every Monday night with a movie night every month).

College Sophomore

Greek Life: Unlike some universities (where Greek life is so important that you are unlikely to get into parties if you are not a member of a frat or sorority), UCF's Greek life doesn't dominate the UCF party scene. I have not rushed for a frat, but UCF did put a suspension on rushes and most Greek activity this year (possibly due to hazing), so rush at your own risk.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have only felt unsafe once on UCF's campus (it was because of this http://www.baynews9.com/content/news/baynews9/news/article.html/content/news/articles/cfn/2013/3/18/suspicious_death_rep.html ). They have call buttons throughout campus that will summon the local police, there is a fire station right at the north end of campus and a police station at the south end, they offer escorts across campus if you feel unsafe, and they are very good at controlling large crowds of people when there is a big athletic event.

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!
