3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I recieved my financial aid without any problems but the office is a nightmare at the beginning of the semester!

2 College Sophomore

Parking: For a permit that is good for the whole year, its about $90 which is pretty pricey. But there are eight garages and you will definitely find a spot in ONE of them! Parking lots and garages are designated for certain dorms with a special permit, ensuring students who live on campus will always have a spot. Parking for the gym, however, really stinks, its always packed. Definitely leave for class early just in case! And if you live on campus, having a car is in no way necessary, when I lived on campus I barely ever used my car.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Being in Florida it gets HOT and walking around on campus can be somewhat of a workout because of how much you'll be sweating, but hey how many other schools have students wearing flip flops and shorts all year long? It also rains quite a bit, but usually at the same time every day, you learn to bring an umbrella after getting stuck in the rain a few times.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is a huge part of UCF. Being the now largest school in the nation, a large majority of students are involved with Greek Life. I, however, am not one of those students. I have many friends involved in soroities and frats but I could not honestly give the Greek Life here a grade.

4 College Junior

Majors: Hospitality Management is a very easy major to get into because it has its own college. The numbers are growing so I believe that is will start getting difficult to get into

5 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Food is very diverse from the dining rooms to the student union that has different options such as fast food to a salsa place by one of the classes.

4 College Freshman

Computers: The computers work but depending on the time during the semester the library can be so crowded that you cannot find one available.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The police can be strict on and off campus. Students who want to drink and party should do it discreetly and play it smart. Don't do anything in your dorm or other people's dorms. It's very likely you'll get busted. Also students jaywalking and speeding get fines all the time.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: UCF offers a decent amount of scholarships. I received financial aid but it was difficult to follow up with and forms took forever to get through. I received a scholarship with the Lead Program I joined. However my scholarship money did not come close to covering all my costs.

4 College Freshman

Computers: There is a sufficient access to computers in the labs, student union, and the library. Free printing is available in the student union and at the library. Most students bring their own or something, computers to college, but if you need access to one between classes, they are readily available at the library and labs. There's enough computers that students will almost have access to one, except maybe during finals.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There are different kinds of people. UCF is quite large so students have plenty of options to pick from. There are a decent amount of transfer students from abroad. Even students that are not transfers often are first or second generation Americans. Meeting people like yourself is not hard here. The guys are pretty attractive , I guess the girls are decent too. There are too many people to really make an accurate obeservation. The good news is if you ever want to avoid someone the school's size helps to assist you in that endeavor.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Overall the housing is pretty good. There are some really nice places to live like Towers, which is apartment style . You can share with i think one to five roommates or not at all which is obvioulsy the most expensive. There are also Newer dorms that range from singles to doubles. Some dorms within a building come with a kitchen area some only the basics. UCF has a variety of housing to fit whatever students can afford but nothing below averge. The less expensive dorms are closer to most of the buildings on campus.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Orlando is a very lively city . Because the area is a collge town there are towns of "cheap " appartments compared to the housing on campus past a student's freshman year. Shopping plazas are all over the place. A good number of students don't have cars and can still get around easily mostly using the school's shuttle which also runs to a few off campus housing locations. Universal is not too far away and there is plenty of night life for college students.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms aren't bad at all and you have no energy or water cap. The internet is nice and it is super nice to be on campus.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are many different places to eat off-campus. Every street has somewhere to eat and you can find many different food genres

1 College Freshman

Parking: The campus has so many students and parking is terrible

4 College Senior

Campus Strictness: UCF has a strict policy when it comes to school rules or addmition. However, this strictness is fare to all students. They will tell you about all the rules and policies when you first come and would give you a good reason why they apply those rules. Being here for almost three years now, I would say eventhough it is strict but it is fare.

Health & Safety: At the campus of UCF the police officers are always present, no matter where you go, they are there. Some time I would stay very late at night working on some assignements, and walk on-campus and I don't feel unsafe at all.

5 College Sophomore

Computers: Computer labs are awesome! They offer tons of expensive programs, and there are so many labs available on campus. Some are just for printing and others are major specific.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Good places to live - Libra, Nike, Hercules, Towers
Bad places to live - Lake Claire, Apollo

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Student like at UCF is great. There is always something going on on campus from events to free things at the student union. They are constantly renovating to make our school look the best!

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: I love the local town and atmosphere. There is so much to do in orlando from theme parks to downtown it is just a good time.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: UCF has some of the best dorms i have ever seen at colleges. Most of the "good dorms" are reserved for upperclassmen. Its almost as if the underclassmen get the bottom of the barrel but at UCF freshmen have nice dorms as well !

4 College Senior

Campus Dining: Campus food is pretty good! They have many restaurants on campus that are extremely reasonable in price. I enjoy eating there!

5 College Senior

Drug Safety: I haven't heard of any incidents related that violate the drug safety here at UCF.

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!
