3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: The Orlando area has so much housing surrounding UCF. And there are so many varieties, we have apartments, condos, townhomes, and regular houses available for rent. And the apartments vary quite a bit, there are average, standard, and luxury based communities. Also, apartments provide a myriad of different living situations: there are studio apartments, one bedroom one bathroom, four bedroom, two bathroom, etc. So you can find something that works for you!

3 College Senior

Diversity: They have a very low international population but they are vehemently trying to increase this percentage. It seems there are more white students than any other race.

4 College Senior

Parking: Right to Find a Spot – The parking is really cheap compared to other colleges around the country but the parking permit only gives you the right to look for a spot, does not mean you will actually find one.

4 College Senior

Nightlife: Always Something to Do – There is a plaza literally across the street with 3 18+ clubs for students. Once you feel that you have outgrown these clubs downtown (has some 18+ clubs but not many) you can go there. Party buses and the "Knight Train" run constantly so transportation is easy to find. UCF also has one voucher per semester for students for a free taxi ride should you feel you cannot drive home safely which is great.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Never Bored – Orlando has great daytime activities as well as a good night life. More so for those who are 21 and older but there is something for everyone.

3 College Senior

Campus Dining: Good but It Gets Boring – When I was a freshman the food was always good, but after a few months you will get tired of the same cycle of food that is available.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: There are a variety of dorms available at UCF. Depending on which dorms you live in (or on-campus apartments) will depend on your experience. The only real issue I had while living on campus is how far I had to park from my dorm so bringing in groceries was always a real workout. I enjoyed living in Apollo my freshman year, didn't have any issues except for parking.

4 College Senior

Weather: The weather in central Floria is usually great, but sometimes it can be too hot and it rains all summer long.

3 College Junior

Weather: Florida is soo hot, carrying your heavy textbooks and walking across campus back and forth can wear you out especially since its ridiculous trying to find just any parking spot!

5 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: Plenty of Extra Housing! There are plenty of different types of housing all around Orlando. Whether you're at the main campus or at a separate campus, there are plenty of types of housing opportunities!

5 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: Between the different races, religions, polotics and personalities, there is TONS of diversity at UCF. No shortage whatsoever.

4 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: Diversity, Diversity, Diversity! No matter what kind of person you're into, you'll find someone who will fit well with you at UCF. Whether it's their background or what they like to do in their spare time, the students at UCF are definitely unique and have their own unique personality.

3 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: Very Helpful as Long as You Stay on Top of It! I have kept up my Bright Futures Scholarship since high school, but other than small grants and loans I have yet to earn a scholarship from UCF. I have a 3.05 GPA and have a great academic resume. Since I am a transfer student, I hope to eventually acquire a scholarship from UCF once I put in time at the school.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: UCF has been an amazing school to attend. The teachers are excellent when you go for one on one time to learn. Alot of my teachers have reached out helped students to get jobs once they have graduated and I believe that is awesome because that means the teachers are not only here to get paid but to also interact and help students which means they are dedicated teachers.

3 College Senior

Transportation: The UCF bus system is actually one of the best ways to get to and from school considering the costs of a parking decal and also when the traffic gets backed up on Alafaya you won't be wasting your gas and getting frustrated, instead you sit with ease and air condition as the driver takes care of everything.

4 College Senior

Computers: Computer Labs – The computer labs on the Rosen campus are always open as long as their isn't a class going on. There are also additional computers in the library if anyone needs to use one so the computers are always accessible and available to use.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Would Do It Again! I would most definately do my undergraduate years all over again. I was a cheerleader all four years and got to experiance football games and basketball games up close. I enjoyed all the classes and felt the professors prepared me well for my future endevours. There was always something to do around campus to keep my occupied and involved in the community.

4 College Junior

Diversity: Very Diverse – I have seen a wide variety of people and students on campus. There are both sides of political parties, various races of people, and ethnicities. However, I see many of these groups mingling and working toward a common goal when it comes to the best interest of the school.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Drinking During Football – I see more drinking during tailgating of football games. I rarely notice it on campus, however, I do think that being with other people in that scene influences others.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: It all depends on your timing. If you come early, of course there's parking. If you come during class time...yea good luck. Parking during the summer season is a lot better than during the spring and the fall.
I would say to give yourself about 15 minutes time before your class. Also, don't look for the closest spot. Just look for A spot.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Amazing Professors – The professors are so helpful that you just can't help but love them! They're always happy to write recommendations and help whenever you ask. That's the key thing though. You have to ask to recieve help. I'm a french major and in one semester I learned more french then I could in one year back in high school.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Do What You Should – As long as your not doing something you shouldn't be doing you have nothing to worry about. If you aren't you do the police are there to keep you safe.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Healthy and Safe – We just became a smoke-free campus! And yes, we do allow drinking on campus but it's responsible drinking! I have yet to hear a bad thing occur because of our drinking rules. There are late night shuttles if you're on campus late and your car is half way across campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: There are many options but I find my self eating at the same places never trying new things. we have comfort food, mexican and other options.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: It's Florida, so there's a lot of sunshine. It does rain at random times though.

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!
