Scholarships: Financial aid comes in different forms. First, I received Bright Futures and then I lost it. There is SO much money lost in scholarships that I never knew existed! It is a hassle to fill out forms but if it takes a bit of work to get money for tuition, it is MORE than worth the time!

Health & Safety: UCF has a safety emergency system in place that e-mails and texts students if something goes wrong on campus. It makes me feel extremely safe.

3 Recent Alumnus

Computers: The library has great computers if you can grab a free one. Wi-Fi is a bit shady and sometimes doesn't work properly.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: Just like any other city, there are numerous places to live off campus. Some places are cheap and exactly what students need and others are more expensive because they are new and have special amenities.

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: UCF KNIGHTS! School spirit is BIG at UCF.

Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: I've never lived on campus.

4 Recent Alumnus

Transportation: The nearby apartment complexes have free shuttles that run to and from the school. The cost to go down down is fairly cheap and a great idea if you want to have fun on the weekend and be safe at the same time! WIN-WIN!

Local Atmosphere: I've lived in Orlando for 4 years and there is still so much I haven't done! The main campus is about 20 minutes from downtown which is always busy on Friday and Saturday nights. There are plenty restaurants and bars near campus as well as a few restaurants that serve alcohol ON campus. Campus activities: there is ALWAYS something to do! Theme parks are 45 minutes away and as a student, we get discounted tickets! I mean, who doesn't want to go to Disney for a fraction of the average ticket?

5 Recent Alumnus

Computers: There's free printing in the student union and a couple computer labs on campus. Wireless can be accessed anywhere by students on campus.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: During the daylight there is nothing to be concerned about safety wise. The health center is easy to make appointments with and very understanding when you're sick.

3 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: You have to be sure to submit FASFA by a certain date to be eligible for some school scholarships and grants.

Academics: Nursing is an extremely hard major academically. I love that the building is not on campus but only like a 5 minute drive away.

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: There are a lot of different fraternities to choose from. Greek housing on campus looks amazing on the outside.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Strictness: They enforce the no underage drinking in fraternities since they got into some trouble. Attendance depends on the teacher some require it some don't.

3 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: Its a college there's talk of parties on the weekends and which clubs you should go to.

4 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: I think UCF strives to have something for everyone to be involved in and is very accepting of everyones varying beliefs.

4 Recent Alumnus

Local Atmosphere: Orlando is a huge city with lots to do. You can venture to the theme parks, go shopping downtown, or go clubbing with friends. There's always something to do.

4 Recent Alumnus

Transportation: Finding parking on campus can be a pain, so taking the bus and getting some walking exercise is a better choice.

5 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: There are a ton of dining options on University Boulevard. Having a wide variety so close to school is definitely beneficial.

4 College Student

Diversity: I think most students are very accepting of one another. If there have been any incidents regarding bullying, I haven't seen them.

3 College Student

Greek Life: I am not into the Greek life, it is definitely not for me. I like groups that are more inclusive.

3 College Student

Transportation: The best option I find is to live on campus, then parking is a non-issue. For off-campus transportation the shuttle is the best bet. The campus shuttle is very convenient and has many pickup locations, plus it runs pretty late at night.

3 College Student

Nightlife: I am not much of a party person. My preference is getting together with a small group of friends who like the outdoors and just hanging out.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: There are many different restaurants available within a short drive. It is fun to get together with friends to go out to eat, and the hardest part most of the time is agreeing on where to go.

4 College Student

Scholarships: The UCF scholarship list has many different scholarship opportunities available. Some of the scholarships are limited to certain fields of study or certain demographics. I would like to see more scholarships that are available based on your academics alone.

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!
