College Junior

Nightlife: iM SO BUSY WITH OTHER OFF CAMPUS ACTIVITIES THAT i DO NOT DO THE PARTY STYLE NIGHTLIFE. I AM THE LIFE OF MY NIGHTS

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I HAVE NOT REALLY BEEN AWARE OF WHATS OT THERE BUT BY THE SAFE FEELING I HAVE THEN ITS GOOD

4 College Junior

Academics: ITS A WONDERFUL PLACE TO BE. LOTS OF PLACES TO MAKE STUDYING AND SOCIALIZING CONVENIENT. LOTS OF WORK BUT HARD WORK ALWAYS PAY OFF

4 College Junior

Academics: A WIDE ARRAY OF SUBJETS OFFERED WITH WORLD CLASS INSTRUCTORS

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: THERE ARE A LOT OF ALTERNATIVES. HEALTHY AS WELL AS NON HEALTHY SELECTIONS. GREAT PLACE TO BE. CLOTHES TOO EARLY SOMETIMES

2 College Junior

Parking: YOU HAVE TO SPEND A LOT OF TIME EARLY TO GET IN....

3 College Junior

Greek Life: THERE IS A LOT OF THEM AROUND. ITS JUST ANOTHER LIVING COMMUNITY. YOU PAY EXTRA DUES ETC. TO NON GREEKS IT DOES NOT MATTER WE ARE ALL SO BUS DOING OUR STUFF NO ONE BOTHERS ANYONE. THERE IS ALWAYS SOMETHING GOING ON CAMPUS

3 College Junior

Weather: It's Florida! So during the summer time lots of rain. But it doesn't change the campus experience at all! Everyone who lives here is generally pretty used to the flighty weather, and I actually think girls are beginning to embrace the humidity, who doesn't want big hair after all!

4 College Junior

Computers: Computer centers were available for residents, and there were several free printing labs available as well! The internet was available for all residents and is generally reliable with a few issues every now and then.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I loved living on campus more for the experience. It was very convenient and fun to be involved in. There were events held almost every month for residents to get to know each other.

College Junior

Greek Life: I was not involved in Greek life.

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: There are over ten restaurants on campus available to the student population. You can have pizza, sit down, buffet style, Chinese, or even a salad bar! Prices match the convenience of the restaurants and they always have students siting down eating in the dining halls.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Tons of school spirit and activities, with sporting events going on almost every week. Intramural sports might not have as large of a turn out as varsity sports but they are still very popular with those involved in the actual sport.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: It depends on the students themselves. Everyone is different so there is no typical student look or dress. The guys and girls are all pretty laid back with a variety of personalities mixed in there.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I love the restaurants by the school. Lazy Moon has giant pizza slices that are available with loads of toppings, there are lots of places around the area so everything is very convenient. Many places have good prices for the college students, although there are some with higher prices. I am not personally a vegan, so I couldn't tell you how those options compare, but there are so many varieties of food that there is something for everyone.

5 College Junior

Majors: I love the program that I am in. The teachers are helpful, and more than anything there are tons of shadowing or volunteer opportunities available to those who choose to be involved in them. Many clubs are related to specific majors so they are also good ways of getting involved in the field of study. My specific major, communication sciences and disorders, is one of the fastest growing fields and UCF has a clinic specifically available for this major with many opportunities to shadow or volunteer and observe there.

College Junior

Majors: I have not done any internship opportunities.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: The most talked about drug is marijuana, but the effects are not extremely noticeable on campus and it does not seem to affect the student life. Otherwise, unless a student goes actively hunting for the drug scene, it is not a prominent part of the student life.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: UCF does have rules especially in regards to academic honesty. Students can get in trouble for alcohol consumption, and it is forbidden in the dorms unless the person is of age. Room checks are performed in the dorms as well checking for alcohol or drug use. If a student is found to be in violation of school rules they are sent to student conduct where their punishment or sentence is given out.

3 College Junior

Diversity: Campus is diverse. There are many "speaking" points on campus where it is free speech, so people from all different religions will come out and talk on various days. There are many classes offered at UCF that discuss diversity and encourage the acceptance of every culture and belief.

4 College Junior

Nightlife: The bars around UCF offer students a great opportunity to get out and have some fun. With Knight's Library located right down the street from the school it is a popular hang out, especially during the infamous riot Wednesdays. There is a stellar bus system available to transport students all around known as Knight Lynx, and students can also utilize free cab tickets from the UCF ticket center, although those are limited. Downtown Orlando holds opportunities for the more adventurous, if you are looking to ride an electronic bull or go to a skyline bar, hop on a bus to downtown and there is no doubting why it is filled with the fun and wild student population.

4 College Junior

Facilities: The University of Central Florida has many great opportunities for students of any year. With over 200+ clubs and organizations to join, there are endless chances for the student population to get involved with the school and the community. Located in Orlando, the University of Central Florida has an awesome ticket center with discounts for students, giving us the chance to explore the many theme parks in the surrounding area. The second largest university in the country, UCF has many academic programs available, and the career services center located on campus is a great way to make sure a student is in the right field.

4 College Junior

Facilities: The library is enormous, allowing many nooks and crannies to be discovered, especially during finals week. The UCF student union is located in the heart of campus, and offers students the chance to pick up free scan-trons, plenty of dining options, as well as an outdoor patio area with tables that offer students solar powered plugs for a chance to reboot their electronics. The best tradition of all is Spirit Splash, where hundreds of students get to rush into the UCF reflection fountain and fight for rubber ducks and shirts that are thrown out to the rushing crowd.

4 College Senior

Academics: I love what I do. As an animation major you have to be very competitive and constantly push yourself to do more. Its less about what you know and more about what you can do. Show me don't tell me. Just make art and make it better than the next guy.

As an education major it can get depressing. This program teaches you to manage a classroom and not to teach content. If you want to join the education program you need to ask yourself, "How passionate am I about teaching?"

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!
