3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Our varsity sports are pretty large! Women's soccer is highly ranked, and our football team is still up and coming. Their facilities are spacious and like-new. We have HUGE school spirit here at UCF! Even if our team is doing poorly, we still get tons of people at our games cheering them on!

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There are several great malls and theme attractions, but they are a good 30-45 minutes from campus. Orlando is huge and we are on the eastern outskirts, so we are limited on what is directly here. Downtown isn't too terribly far, though! Around here there are a few clubs that are popular. Safety here is average of that of a large college sub-city. The Bob-Carr center gets a lot of musicals coming in and is always nice to visit! Downtown is great to go to get a high end city feel with all the skyscrapers!

3 College Junior

Majors: The process of getting into Biology major is relatively easy. You have to have a minimum GPA of 2.5 or higher. You also have to take a Chemistry placement test to be able to take chemistry in that unviersity. You declare your major as soon as you apply for the university because you have to choose the college that goes with your major so you can have advisors for that major you are pursuing

3 College Senior

Weather: Florida weather is just so unpredictable sometimes. But it is pretty nice

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Restaurants are pretty good. The ones that I have attended are good on pricing and quality.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Amazing! I love my school and my time here has been phenomenal.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: I feel completely safe on campus. The amount of campus police patrolling the school reinforces my opinion.

5 College Junior

Academics: College of Health and Public Affairs – My particular college has some of the most genuine and helpful people I have met. I consider their dedication to be that of the highest degree and everyone benefits from the quality and mission the represent.

5 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Lots of Variety – The diversity of men and women on campus is the biggest plus; this is mostly because of the number of students but also a credit to the programs and culture on campus.

5 College Junior

Computers: The technology on campus works great and everything is up-to-date as far as software and hardware demands go for scholarly purposes. The library, classrooms, and web resources are great as well. Multiple labs are available.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: There are text and email notifications of any safety alerts on campus, escorts available at night, call boxes, police patrolling and other resources that keep the campus safe

5 College Freshman

Nightlife: There is always something going on in UCF. It could be a small dorm floor kick back or a Frat house kegger. The school also plans movie nights, raves, and school wide parties in the arena. As for transportation you have a number you can dial on the back of your id for a free ride anywhere on campus, as long as you tip the driver! Off campus there are clubs that are always fun but have entrance fees so it's only a once in a while thing. Bars are for 21+ so i don't know much about those.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: UCF is not a "white only" school. I see people every day that could be from places that I can't even find on a map. Just by walking past the student union center i am handed flyers by various religious groups to join their game night, bible reading, or blessed supper. I have a laugh at the rival Democrat and Republican club tents that are positioned side by side. They even have an Indian meditation group that always plays this strange music but seems like something i could do if I ever had the time or drive to sit down with them. I see all of this just by walking from one class to another.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Safety is great on campus. Security is always driving throught parking garages and around campus. If your there at night you can call for an escort so you dont have to walk around campus at night alone.

4 College Junior

Weather: Rain is the biggest problem. If you pack an umbrella you will be fine.

3 College Junior

Parking: Parking permits are expensive. I live at off campus housing and UCF offers a free shuttle. Parking on campus can be crazy depending on the parking garage. To get around campus most students either walk, ride a bike, skateboard, or scooter.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Everyone is free to be themselves. No need to dress a certain way. Dress how you want.

2 College Senior

Campus Dining: There is a good variety, but the chain restaurants on campus are express versions.

1 College Senior

Scholarships: At orientation I was told to make sure I apply for all of the scholarships that I can because they always have ones that go unawarded; however, I applied the past two years and have not recieved one yet.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Dining around campus is nice because there is always something open, but they mostly hire college students so sometimes it's hard to find good service.

4 College Senior

Academics: Education Internships – UCF partners with 11 counties to place interns which is nice because you don't have to stay around the college if you do not want to.

5 College Senior

Academics: Elementary Education Professors – Once I finally got to my upper level courses, the professors were great! They are all passionate about what they teach and want to make sure you succeed!

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: No Money No Fun – There is plenty of fun things to do in Orlando with theme park, water parks, and the downtown nightlife. However, the poor college kid doesn't always have the funds to take part in all this excitement. There are still a few local hangout places but the place is seriously lacking on low-cash entertainment.

Athletics: If They Were Good It Would Be Good – No tradition in sports and well we all knew what happened with their programs...

3 College Senior

Campus Dining: I'm a Chipotle Lover – They're are alot of places to dine around campus and on campus. But on my college student salary i stick to basic meals and sometimes chipotle.

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!
