4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Although the cost may be a little high, if you room with other people, the price decreases dramatically. You can pick anything from on-campus to off-campus housing. Apartments, houses, townhouses, lofts, studios, hotels, everything is open to the students of UCF.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The student involvement, team performance, fan support, school spirit, athletic facilities are all above superb. The students show their support by participating in Spirit Week- one of the most fun weeks in all of UCF!

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: If you go downtown, there are plenty of clubs for the people 21 and over. On campus, there are a lot of house parties held by your fellow students. If you are not into the party scene, there are movie nights and events held by UCF's Late Knights which consist of themed gathering both safe and fun.

3 College Junior

Academics: Every professor is different, so I can't make a general evaluation the staff. I'm a Communication Sciences and Disorders major, and I am enjoying the program. The classes aren't too difficult, you just have to put in the time to study. Registration can be frustrating because classes fill up quickly, and it's tough to get the "perfect schedule."

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: There are a wide range of dorms on campus. The Towers are the nicest, with full-sized beds and individual rooms, a living room, a dishwasher, etc., but they are also the most expensive. Nike and Hercules are just as nice, but they have twin beds. The rest (Libra, Apollo, and Lake Claire) are not as nice, but still get the job done, and are closer to the buildings on campus.

2 College Junior

Greek Life: The Greek life on campus is fun for those in it, but to everyone else, many of the Greeks are viewed as very annoying, but not all of them. A lot of them are involved in student government, so that's a plus.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: UCF is strict about drugs and alcohol on campus. Drinking is more of an issue than drugs, but peer pressure usually isn't a factor.

4 College Junior

Facilities: The gym is great, the reflection pond is a beautiful place to relax/study, and "All Knight Study" is a great place to do homework.

3 College Junior

Facilities: The film and digital arts programs are top notch, the campus is beautiful, the gym is great, and the Towers area is really cool, because it has different shops and restaurants.

2 College Junior

Campus Dining: They offer a lot of different options for food, but the quality of the food worsens throughout the year. They only cook the fresh stuff at the beginning of the year to attract people to buy a meal plan if they're visiting the campus, and at the end when they want you to buy another meal plan.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are people of all different races, religions, beliefs, hobbies, and everything you can imagine at UCF. Being such a large school, there is a place for everyone.

4 College Junior

Academics: I think there are some really great professors, however, there are some professors that are absolutely horrible, or rather, some professors that don't understand outstanding situations (death of a parent, even) or some where you can do everything to get a grade you wanted, but still end up with less.

Regardless, the grand majority of professors are great, even if the workload is a lot, it's worth it overall.

3 College Junior

Majors: Both of my two majors are very simple to get into, basically, you can just declare a major and that's it, it's like that for anyone involved in a humanities major, I would assume. I think it's more difficult for other majors, but I'm not sure as I've never ventured out of the humanities.

3 College Junior

Weather: It's way too hot most of the time. It doesn't help if you're in or around the older buildings on campus because there's not a lot of shade. When it happens to be cold--very rarely--it often seems like some of the buildings, especially in the Business Administration building and the Engineering building are the same temperature as outside.

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: There is quite a variety of actual restaurants on campus. I wouldn't know so much about the actual dining halls but... there are plenty of options for buying lunch or snacks between classes at UCF.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: The computer lab with the best computers always has a huge wait. If you want a computer instantly, there's more than enough in other labs, but those computers are pretty slow. So I suppose it's a trade off. Wifi connection for personal computers is hit or miss.

College Student

Off-Campus Housing: Right now I have not personally researched off campus housing. I am entering as a freshman and will living on campus. I hear from my friends that are attending UCF that they love living off campus and they did not have a problem finding a home, but I personally cannot rate it right now.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There are all sorts of girls and guys at UCF. The population is nearly 65000 people. There has to be at least one special person out there. If it's not love you're looking for, then basically most people are friendly, though they may portray a bit of cockiness.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: The nightlife is not for "students". It's for party animals. As for clubs, there are barely any clubs for under-18 students. However the nightlife is great for legal drinkers. More clubs. More parties. More insane lives. For the underage, like me, house parties are the best. Usually frat parties are better than the clubs. Better music, food, and most importantly free.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I received an amount that was quite low for an outstanding student. My FAFSA and financial aid forms were "lost" in the process. I live in Celebration. So to drive to the financial aid office every single time a mishap had occured was one, quite annoying, and two, a waste of time. In the end, I got my money.

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is currently nonexistent due to all sororities and fraternities being put on temporary suspension due to allegations of hazing. Before the hazing incidents, Greek life didn't play that big of a deal on campus. I went to rush and got invites to a few fraternities, but decided that Greek Life isn't for me. While Frats go out to bars and hold their own parties, everybody can take part in just about everything a fraternities offer (other than the bonding trips you pay extra for).

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The attendance for sporting events is not as great as it used to be. At the start of the season football and basketball games achieved sizable crowds, but as the seasons wear on it seems that there are less than 40,000 people in attendance, which is embarrassing for a school of over 60,000 students. IM sports are pretty big, as I have participated in quite a few, including IM Basketball, IM Flag Football, IM Baseball, IM Kickball, and IM Soccer.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The campus is very layed back and not very strict. Sure there are rules in place for your safety and well being, but the majority of rules in play here all have to do with common sense. For example, try not to act all crazy when decide to drink and the campus police shouldn't bother you.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Fairly simple process that is smooth and self explainitory. All you have to do is fill in ucf in the college attending blanks when you are filling out your fafsa and boom, you're in. Any questions or mistakes you think may have been made on your application and all you have to do is go to the financial aid building located in Millican Hall and the trained proffesionals will be able to assist you. The school sends you plenty of emails to let you know about deadlines and such dealing with financail aid, so you never fall behind or get left out.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Very well kept and good looking apartments. Close to campus and close to entertainment all around the orlando area. Inexpensive in my opinion, which is wonderful.

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!
