3 College Sophomore

Parking: The parking is okay. There is just so much volume of students that need to park there so it can be a hassle sometimes.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Unfortunately this semester I am not entitled to the pell grant but I am going to receive aid from bright futures. When I was on the phone with financial aid they were moderately helpful. By the end of the conversation they were pretty patient and tried to get me the means of answering my questions, although not all of them went answered.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Not bad. There's all of the fast food chains within a two mile radius (Wendy's, UCF's own McDonalds, Steak N Shake, Chick fil A, etc...), but at places like Waterford Lakes Mall and on both sides of Colonial, there's lots of different types of eateries and bakeries. The best part is that they're not too pricy either.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I give UCF a B- because EVERYONE can get alcohol, easily. All you need is a fake or know people at clubs and you can get your drinks. Ladies get handed drinks, or sometimes if you have the money, SOME (that's only if you know people) bartenders will serve you if you're under 21. However, alcohol abuse has been a big problem on campus within the last two semesters. Sororities and frats were banned this past semester on underage drinking and excessive alcohol. So, although you can easily get anything you want, you need to watch out as officials are cracking down really hard on the student body.

4 College Senior

Majors: We have great programs if you take advantage of it. The only downside is the lack of personable environment in the classroom.

4 College Senior

Campus Strictness: We actually have a very safe campus. Despite how strict they can be about drinking and drug use - the police are overall loved. We had a big scare this year and thankfully our very own police force was able to be there within minutes.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Being one of the largest schools in the nation, you will find all types of people at the University of Central Florida. People range from the unattractive to the most beautiful and interests, dress, and relationships vary through out our community. Of course, there are those who take a different girl home every night or girls who go home with a different guy every other night, but these are also things that vary on the crowd you hang out with. With this being said I would say overall, UCF is a party school and people like to have fun here - this being a major priority of the students.

5 Recent Alumnus

Nightlife: Nightlife is awesome at UCF! The local bars always have great specials and everyone goes out a lot. All the specials you need to know are on the Party Tutor smartphone app.

4 Recent Alumnus

Weather: The weather in central Florida is constantly changing. Some days it is rainy and pretty nasty outside, which makes for a difficult time going from class to class across the campus. But every other day that it's not raining is a perfect day to spend as much time outside walking around campus or eating lunch by the pond under the sun.

2 College Student

Athletics: I will be an incomming freshman there this fall but i can tell the students really love the sports teams

5 College Senior

Parking: The parking situation at UCf is cool. Even if the spots fill up quickly, which they do... There is one extra parking garage just for people who don't have a parking pass and plenty off campus spots that provide free shuttle transportation. Can't ask for more than that!

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: Our last incident was a suicide attempt, that's it

5 College Junior

Campus Strictness: UCF is very lenient and relaxed when you are following the rules. The RA's make you feel comfortable and are always open to listen to your problems and concerns. UCF police are very kind but they take their jobs serious in order to ensure our campus is a safe environment.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: Drugs are alcohol are not noticeable on campus. UCF has now passed a rule that alcohol is forbidden on campus. I have never witnessed any drug use nor alcohol use on campus. UCF police department is very strict about regulating these policies and following up on calls they receive related to drug and alcohol use. It is well known that our school forbids this and will take strict action if this rule is broken. This is why this problem is very small on our campus.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living on campus is highly recommended for your first year at the university. The dorms are clean and the RA's make you feel like home. Living on campus is very convenient and you get to meet new people. Furthermore, freshmen are more involved on campus when they live on campus opposed to commuting. You also have more time to meet up with study groups and spend more time at the school library or join tutoring and supplemental instruction.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I do plan to have an internship as a Communication Sciences and Disorders student. I do not have any concerns in finding an internship as the professors and counselors in this major are very helpful and give us many opportunities to strive for our goals.

4 College Freshman

Majors: As a Communication Sciences and Disorders major, I am very happy with my program. I am aiming to apply to earn a Ph.D., which I think is because of the program at UCF and the opportunities we receive within it. My career goals start with working for a year in between my undergrad and grad. Then after receiving my Masters, I would like to work in a home-health facility as well as in a hospital to give my time to the elders. After that I would like to open my own private facility and teach in Universities. I do not have any concerns in finding a job since there are so many opportunities out there in different fields within this major.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I am in the College of Public Health Affairs and I am very satisfied with the classes and professors so far. It becomes like a great family and the professors and counselors are always available to assist when in need. In our senior year we get the opportunities to work in internships to explore the field more. The workload and curriculum are straightforward and goal oriented.

5 College Freshman

Majors: Getting into the Communication Sciences and Disorders program was fairly easy. First we declared our major and then were accepted into the program with high expectations.

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Orlando is a place where you can always find something to do. There is no way to become bored with all the theme parks, clubs, fine dining, and great shopping. Around the school in particular I always feel very safe. There are blue protecting lights that you can press if you ever feel unsafe and not one has ever been pressed. I walk back and forth on campus at all hours and have never felt threatened in any way. In addition, there is no need to worry about getting involved on campus. There are easily over 300 clubs to join and the Greek life is 60% of the school so if anyone is ever feeling out of the social loop there are so many ventures they can partake in.

5 College Junior

Majors: I am currently an Event Management major at the Rosen College of Hospitality Management with a minor in Entrepreneurship. I have a year and a half left until I receive my Bachelors and thus far love everything about the course of study that I have chosen. I believe that this is the right career path for me because I like having a different routine each day. I could never see myself working the typical 9am-5pm desk job that most Americans settle for. Event Management is a course of study that can lead to a career that is ever changing each and every day. I know this because I completed an internship in fall with Evolve The Group – a top production company in Orlando. During this internship I held various positions at many different events and implemented my own plans to make them successful. When I started with this company they had only been established for six months. This allowed me to provide constructive feedback to improve the internship program, and gave me the empowerment to contribute my own ideas to each event held. My ultimate goal is to always provide customers with a positive experience, which has allowed me to develop excellent communication skills. I am also a hard worker and have always been considered a personable and reliable employee, as I find it easy to get along well with customers, supervisors, and fellow employees. In addition, since this career path requires exceptional organization and multi-tasking skills, I would like to stress my ability to balance my time. I have had to improve my time management skills since beginning college due to the amount of involvement I wanted to have in the community between being apart of a sorority, taking part in various clubs on campus, and also having time to work and support myself.

2 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: I think Off-campus housing at University of Central Florida are not the safest places to live. Although the prices are reasonable, these areas tend to be crime-ridden. 10 minutes from campus are somewhat safer than right across the street, but the prices for the apartments are unreasonable for the apartment size! You win some or lose some, but there are so many choices it should be easy to find an apartment nearby campus that one would like.

3 College Senior

Weather: Being in Florida, the weather tends to be bipolar. So you can get soaked walking to class and as you reach your destination the rain has stopped. Otherwise, the days are usually beautiful sunny days but can be extremely humid!

4 College Senior

Athletics: There is a lot of school spirit on the UCF campus especially at football and basketball games. Students are so supportive and it makes attending sports events so much more fun!

5 College Senior

Campus Dining: Wide variety of restaurants and popular menu items that can accomodate anyone from vegetarians to meat eaters.

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!
