4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Many Resources – Campus has many resources and services to ensure safety. Some examples: if you are out late and feel unsafe walking back to your dorm, you may request a police escort. If you feel like you're in danger, you can find many emergency intercoms on campus. The health center on campus is also very helpful.

4 College Senior

Campus Strictness: Strict Means Safety – Campus policies are very well publicized and enforced. These rules can only add to student safety and well being.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Opportunities Abound – UCF is surrounded by many tourist attractions as well as fantastic restaurants and clubs. Lots to do at all hours when you are not in school or studying. Beach is only 45 miles or so away (Cocoa Beach) as well!

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Connected on Campus – Living on campus gives you easier access to the many on campus events. More convenient for study groups and such as well.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Being a Florida resident, I may have become accustomed to weather conditions that out of state students might find annoying. Weather here can change from sunny to rainy at any moment. Not very predictable. But manageable!

2 College Junior

Scholarships: Total Hassle – My original estimate for financial aid was perfect, however two weeks into school just as tuition was due the University cut almost all of my aid and I am still in the process of sorting things out.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Orlando is a really cool city to go to school in. The University of Central Florida campus and the surrounding area is pretty self contained which gives it a college town atmosphere. However there are also a lot of other attractions in Orlando like Universal Studios and Disney which add a metropolitan atmosphere. In the end students get the best of both worlds.

1 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Not Too Much – As I've stated, there really isn't too much to do in Palm Bay. There's bowling, golf, theaters, mall and parks. Everything is close in proximity which is awesome, however it's pretty lame.

4 College Senior

Weather: Not too much happens in Florida, besides rain and of course, the classes are never cancelled due to a little rain.

1 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The apartments are so expensive and everybody that I have talked to says there are plenty of problems with them from roaches to having their cars towed.

1 College Junior

Parking: The parking on campus is horrible, for 60,000 students, most of which have their cars or are commuting. There need to be more parking garages. The school makes enough money to build more, so DO IT!

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: Eh, Greeks. Greeks are not looked at any differently than non greeks. Being a part of greek life does mean you help out in the community and you're always having activities. The greeks are known for their parties, but you don't necessarily need to be a greek to hear about it or be invited. Greeks are constantly hosting activities and events for the whole school to participate in.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Fair Enough! The campus strictness is strict enough to keep the students in line, but loose enough to not make the students feel like they're in jail. The campus will make every student take drug and alcohol courses, plus an unless theres consent course, but it's all to keep the students safe. The cops on campus are pains 100% of the time, so be careful when it comes to driving with anything you know is bad on you. Like always, if you know something you're doing is wrong, be discreet about it, other than that the consequences are fair, not too rough at all. Just be smart!

2 College Freshman

Parking: There are many garages, but there are so many students! It takes up to 20 minutes to find a not so good spot. I recommend getting a bike! By the time you find parking and walk to class you could of already gotten there on a bike alone. If you're going to park, leave 30 minutes before class.

4 College Junior

Computers: There are always open computers in the library and throughout campus. Printing does cost money in the library, however you can print a certain amount of pages for free every week at the SGA office. The network is very reliable and the speed is usually pretty satisfactory, although the internet is sometimes slower due to so many other students online.

3 College Senior

Computers: Decent and Reliable – They are pretty good, not top of the line but nice

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I really dont know much about greek life on campus

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Theme Parks, Exciting Down Town, and Beach Fun! There are various kinds of fun to be had as a student at UCF. The beach is about 45 min. away and can be easily reached. There are 3 major and many other minor theme parks right in your city. There is a very large and exciting downtown Orlando scene that is ever new. No matter what kind of fun you are looking for, it is here!

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Yummy Yummy – There is a huge variety of off campus dining and it will cover all your food desires. There are high end classy steakhouses, all the way down to the best hole-in- the wall joints!

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Modern Crew – Most of the students at the University of Central Florida have a modern vibe that is reflected in their dress, the music they like, the events they are interested in, and the overall feel on campus.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: I Haven't Come Across Any – I haven't come across any drugs or peer pressure about drugs. So I give the school an A+ on it.

3 College Junior

Weather: It's Nice on a Nice Day – Campus is nice when the weather is clear, but there aren't many overhangs for when it rains.

1 College Junior

Parking: Nowhere to Park – Parking on campus is terrible. There is no place to park, and this semester there is one less parking lot. I know that UCF can't help the amount of cars and students so that is why I'm not giving it an F.

2 College Senior

Academics: Tough to Register for Classes – There are so many students that go to UCF that it often hard to enroll in classes. If you wait until the last minute you will most likely not be able to enroll into the class because it will become filled up. The type of professor you get is dependent on your major. For example, a philosophy professor is gonna be much more interesting and understanding than would a chemistry or engineering professor. There are plenty of places like All Knight Study and the Student Union that are open to students 24 hours to study. The workload is about the same for any state university dependent on your major.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Students Are Into Greek Life – The majority of students that go to UCF become a part of "Greek Life". This is both a good an bad thing because you can meet a lot of people if you decide to join a sorority or fraternity, but if you don't, it might be harder to meet people on campus. The students at UCF are also into partying. There are a lot of bars and clubs around the school. The types of guys and girls you find around UCF are pretty diverse in their personalities.

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!
