4 College Freshman

Majors: I'm in the College of Business Administration and I've been very happy with it so far. As an Accounting major, I have experienced many professors who are willing to help students outside of class time. The class will be big in the beginning but quickly narrow down once you are past the general classes.

4 College Freshman

Weather: In Florida it is always sunny! It's nice to hang out by the pool and also there are lots of things to do outside on campus. The warm weather is great for kayaking or paddle boarding on Lake Claire, and beach volleyball on the sand courts. It does rain however in the Spring, but usually for a few days and then it's back to sunshine!

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Lots of kids do it, but you don't always see it

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: There is tons of stuff to do around UCF and a lot of it you don't have to be 21 years old. There are multiple bars, clubs, and sports bars that everyone can go hang out and have fun at. UCF offers bus transportation and on certain nights the party bus will take you downtown and pick you up so you can go to the bars down there as well.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There's a variety of people at UCF. Everyone seems friendly, but everyone is in their own world. One thing I noticed is that girls dress very provocative, which is inappropriate since students should be focusing in their future career, not focusing on a fashion show or who wears the least amount of clothing.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: In Orlando there are thunder and lightning storms constantly and when that happens the roads get crowded and unsafe. When I travel to school during a thunderstorm is very dangerous. I think the school should take consideration of these storms and postpone classes when these storms arise.

3 College Freshman

Parking: It's alot more convenient to have a car AND a skateboard/longboard. Parking is hard to find almost all the time. But once you find it, you don't want to leave it. So take a skateboard/longboard/bike to get from class to class once you're there. Arrive to school at least 25-30 minutes before your class to get a decent parking. The first few weeks of each semester are the worst time for parking so get there even earlier. In some parking garages there are no back-in parking, so be cautious for that in order to not receive a ticket.
The Parking permits come out a lot cheaper if you buy the annual(year) permit opposed to buying a new each semester.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There's so much variety and diversity at UCF. You'll find sorority girls, fraternity boys, country girls/boy, city girls/boys, religious girls/boys, etc. Depending on what one looks for, they're all seemingly attractive. Each person is unique in their own way so it's never an issue to build a friendship/relationship with any girl or guy on campus.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The guys are Awesome. There are preps, jocks, emo's, skaters, surfers, future politicians, and a plethora of guys. Most of them go to the gym 4-5 days a week, so they walk around shirtless or with sleeveless tops. The girls are cool. Most of them take the dance class's at the gym so they are pretty toned. They love to party and will throw on a pair of pumps in a heartbeat.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel extremely safe on this campus. There are always students walking around, so the school never feels deserted. So early morning jogs are perfectly safe. At many forks are emergency buttons to press when you need help. The school also offers after hours police escorts, free of charge.

1 College Senior

Parking: Parking is horrible. If you have to move your car for anything, expect to either find a very far parking spot or just wait in your car for hours.

3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: It's far from places like Disney but there are a lot of shopping plazas around campus. Not too much to do outside of campus regarding social life.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Living in central florida is the best of both worlds. It's warm and not too far from the beaches all year round. Plus there are tons of attractions and things to do on your days off you'll never get bored!

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I like my major and the school itself. It's not very big at least no my campus. Plus I get to take some pretty interesting courses that specialize in my field of study.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I didn't receive what I was expecting. I'm putting myself through school and waited til I was 25 to go back because I'd finally be emancipated from my Dad who hasn't really helped me at all with school costs. I was definitely disappointed that I'd have to pay so much out of pocket. That's why I'm here.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I like the professors they all seem pretty nice and pretty fair so far.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: Haven't had a problem so far but I mainly use my own.

1 College Sophomore

Parking: UCF parking is horrific. Yes, there are eight parking garages and numerous parking lots, but you will still never find a space any where even remotely close to your class. They just accepted a ton more students, and still haven't made more parking! You have to learn the art of stalking people to their cars, and then fighting someone over a space. To get to class on time, you have to leave at minimum 30 minutes early, and even driving you will have to walk about 10 mins more to your class. It is that bad.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: The amenities at UCF are really top of the line. The Library and the Gym are both excellent, and provide fantastic services. There are also lots of places to hang out on the campus itself, and the environment always feels relaxed, friendly, and modern. One of the biggest draws of the University is it's great facilitates that are available to students!

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Both financial aid and scholarships are difficult to get any information on, or to receive in general.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I've never really felt too unsafe on the campus- only in the parking garages am I ever nervous.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There are restaurants open and there are clubs, but the clubs are about 30 minutes away from the campus. There is also a bus service, but I am not sure how late it runs.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: I don't like the dining halls, but they have a bunch of restaurants that are good.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: There are many activities and it's a large campus.

2 College Junior

Parking: Parking is confusing unless you stop by the visitor center to get a Map and directions. Also students have to PAY annually for the University's own parking decal or get fined. That's a great safety measure however students are not compensated for this requirement. Once you fugure your way around campus, there are several parking garages and parking lots to choose from.

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!
