3 College Sophomore

Weather: Because the University of Central Florida is such an outdoor school, one beautiful days, it is great. When the weather is perfect outside you see people laying out my the fountain studying rather than being stuck in the library. It's a great walk, but this is also a down because when the weather is bad and it is storming, you have to walk across campus and usually will be soaked by the time you get there.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: At the University of Central Florida, sports is a pretty big deal. People are constantly updating their facebook status' saying that they are going to a game or there are always email students receive about the sports taking place that week. Student involvement is crucial, not only on the fields, but also in the stands as the students from UCF are constantly going to games to cheer on their fellow classmates and peers.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Strictly speaking, if you are a woman who is alone at night on campus, you would best be walking with a purpose. Lately, UCF has been experiencing a fair amount of crime consisting of robbery and assault and it is recommended to all students to walk with purpose and if possible in a group. However, the campus itself is safe in general.

Nightlife: Especially around the downtown orlando area/international drive, the nightlife in orlando is extremely attractive to people of all ages. The club scene that is local to ucf has been temporarily stunted with the construction of the new plaza, however, the slack will pick up soon. Transportation is available till 3 AM

4 College Sophomore

Majors: My specific program is flexible in the way that you can go on a variety of tracks, and encompasses many fields of Exercise Science. That being coaching, human performance or medical tracks its a very flexible major in the college of education.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: A typical internship in the Major of Sport and Exercise Science consists of a practicum due by the time you graduate to get hands on experience with professionals of your desired field or medical track.

4 College Freshman

Computers: The computers at UCF are reliable, fast, and up-to-date. Printing labs are very simple to manage and are conveniently free to students. However, I would greatly recommend bringing your own laptop for ease and privacy. This way you do not have to walk to a computer lab every time you have an assignment due. Working on your own laptop in your own room is much easier and more relaxing.

1 College Freshman

Parking: The parking is simply horrendous. The permits are expensive and it is a struggle to find a spot on a daily basis. Be prepared to circle around the garage looking for a spot for at least fifteen to twenty minutes. Therefore, get to campus around 30 minutes before class starts.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletics at the University of Central Florida are increasingly prevalent. We recently reached the status of "largest university in the nation" and our student fan base couldn't be more proud. Football games bring immeasurable excitement and school spirit throughout the campus. IM sports are also huge, attracting everybody and anybody willing to play. The athletic scene is also greatly influenced by our enormous gymnasium. The gym holds four basketball courts, two stories of work out equipment, Olympic style pools, a 40 foot rock climbing wall and many other things. With the help of a great array of equipment and easy access to personal trainers, I would venture to say that UCF's athletic scene is top notch.

4 College Junior

Majors: To get into the Theatre program at UCF, I had to encounter an interview. The interviewer was being hard on me, but looking back, I think he wanted to see how bad I wanted to be in the program and how hard I would fight for it. Once being in the program, I can see that the other students that were accepted are very passionate in what they are doing.

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: all i have to do is fill out FAFSA and the money comes in on time

5 College Sophomore

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: the foot ball games at our schools are well attended but the other sports are now\t

3 College Junior

Computers: The computers at University of Central Florida are usually crowded most of the time. They have a numerous of computers available at the library and computer labs in different building. Although you have to walk around a few laps around to find a computer, you will eventually find a computer for your use.

3 College Junior

Transportation: Public transportation is really good around campus. They have shuttle transportation that are provided among many locations. They have them every 30 minutes picking up students and taking them to the campus. They have the buses from most apartment affiliated facilities that take you to the main campus and also other campuses.

4 College Student

Greek Life: Greek life consists of students that are very close to each other and share a majority of their lives, they study and relax together, creating a very relaxing environment.

Whether you are from a different ethnicity, different religion, different sexual orientation, different socioeconomic background or different political beliefs; people are very understanding and demonstrate their acceptance by not having prejudice or stereotypes of others.

4 College Student

Facilities: My school has an excellent engineering program which I am proud to say that I am a part of. This engineering program contains internships available to students and produces an amazing experience for future engineers.

4 College Student

Facilities: Student life on campus of University of Central Florida is superb, the university is extremely modern and seems like a small city all on its own for the many students residing at University of Central Florida. The library is a place often visited by many students and contains a plethora of knowledge available for the students to explore and there is also a plaza where dining places and bookstores are located.

4 College Student

Drug Safety: The students at University of Central Florida are concentrating on the academics and events that the university provides, there is no place for profane things such as drug and alcohol use. The no-drug and no-alcohol policy is very enforced at this grand university.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms aren't great and feel small, but they are still a decent place to sleep and study. And they are close to the campus and it won't take you long to get to the class

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I got the financial aid that I needed, though the office didn't provide that much help when it came to it. They just leave it to the students to figure out for them selves

3 College Sophomore

Computers: It has a nice, well maintained campus with all around classes, and the buildings provide good internet service. Walkways are crowded and filled with people, and you will have to dodge oncoming bikers and skateboarders.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: Don't know, the greek life seems normal to me. I've never interacted with them so its hard to say.

3 College Junior

Transportation: The shuttles could be better/faster. They are not always as reliable as they could be, but they're still not bad. Also, KnightLYNX and the airport shuttles are awesome.

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!
