4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Great Night Life – There are many places to shop and eat around the campus but the night life is great! There are plenty of local bars and restuarants that are open late to drink and not far away is Downtown Orlando and City Walk.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Pre-Nursing Program – Since I'm in the pre-nursing/ pending nursing program I have pretty general classes. But the classes will help me with test such as the TEAS test which some nursing schools require a student to have when applying to their school. The workload is pretty much what you expect in college, there are times when you really have to put all your time into studying.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: For me to recieve my financial aid it was a semi stressful process, only because I was choosen for verification. I had to overnight all my paper work to make sure it was actually getting to the office but once I recieved my aid I was happy.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: There are many majors at UCF, however the nursing major is very competitive and therefore they have very high standards and strict numbers of how many can be accepted into the major. Therefore it causes us students who are trying to pursue a nursing career to apply to many other nursing programs.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Football and Baseball Are at the Top but Basketball Is Lacking. Football and baseball are the top sports at UCF. While the basketball team lacking in some areas, the overall atmosphere in the arena is great.

4 College Junior

Academics: The College of Engineering and Computer Science – I would have to say that the College of Engineering and Computer Science is great aside from the quality of some of the classrooms. Some of the rooms in the older buildings are very outdated but the quality of the education is excellent. Career opportunities and scholarships are readily available and they make a great effort to connect the student with them.

4 College Freshman

Academics: There's Something for Everyone – The professors are passionate about what they teach and truly know what they are talking about. There are several course options and something in every subject. The registration process for classes is very simple and straight forward; all you have to do is go to the page online in your myUCF and choose which classes you want. Business and Psychology are very popular majors. Most freshmen will take SLS 1501, i like to call it the freshmen seminar or introduction class, freshmen are only allowed to take this class and I definitely recommend it.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Get Involved! In Orlando there is so much to do, aside from the amusement parks that are very near by. On campus there is something to do everyday, there is something for everyone. There's a club for creating clubs. With a population of 60,000 students, there is no doubt there is extreme diversity and no one will feel alone. Getting involved on campus is the key to having a great time, but there will always be something to do off campus as well.

4 College Junior

Facilities: Fresh Air and Beautiful Vistas. The very first thing that attracted me about UCF was its beautiful open campus. It is far from a cramped and gridded campus that you might see at other universities. The circular design along with paths that are maintained with excellent greenery offer a welcoming feel and easy access to any facility on campus. Arguable the best hangout spot on campus is the Reflection Pond where students can lay back on the grass and relax in front of a magnificent fountain accenting the entrance of the campus library.

4 College Junior

Facilities: Excellent Opportunities for Career Development. I would like to describe the incredible resources available to students in the career development area. I was able to acquire an internship through the help of one of the UCF programs and there is always people to aid with resume building and networking. UCF is really concerned with developing students for the industries they're in, not just handing them diplomas.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Come Experience It Yourself! Students who have come and gone through UCF will all tell you the same thing, you will never forget your time spent here. You will make several friends that you will hold on to for life and gain experiences that will change you forever, good or bad.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Advisers Truly Make Sure You're on the Right Path – I am a nursing major and the advisors that I have been associated with love their jobs and will do anything to make sure you are continuously on the correct path and make sure you remain there. They also offer several resources for internships and future jobs.

5 College Junior

Diversity: Plenty of Differences and Plenty of Love. From what I have seen on campus I have come to the conclusion that UCF is a very diversified campus in many areas than just ethnicity and race; it is diverse in nearly every way. There are always information tables set up for groups on campus that welcome students to learn more about political groups, religious culture, different music and art styles, and so much more. The response to this atmosphere is generally very accepting and respectful from every party.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: A Cutting Edge School – UCF loves to stay on top of technology and having the best facilities for their students. I can admit that maybe we lack the school spirit the older schools in the area do such as FSU, UF, and UM but we are in the top five in the country as far as student population go. Our student body is really active in causes ranging from political and social to environmental and health. I love the feeling I get walking around the campus it's beautiful and the people know how to have fun. Maybe we don't have the best sports team but game days are still awesome. The student housing in the area is great lots of swimming pools and recreational and wellness facilities.

2 College Senior

Transportation: Shuttles Are Always Late – The University has shuttles to all the student apartment complexes but they are never on time and I often wait 30+ minutes for them.

3 College Senior

Weather: Some Rain – Rains a lot during summer and late spring but usually perfect weather.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: The Scene Is Currently Undergoing Changes. The popular places that existed right across the street from campus ("Fubar", The Library, The Dungeon, Deko, Underground Bluz) are either being shut down or relocated due to the plaza being turned into a student housing development. If you go a couple miles down University Blvd, you can find a Buffalo Wild Wings, World of Beer, Tilted Kilt but nothing really like a dance club, just mostly bars. There are still plenty of good parties to attend though.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: A Safe Area. I've been attending UCF since '05 till the present ('12) and Ive never felt unsafe while walking around on campus, even after night classes that ended at 9 or after basketball games... There are plenty of emergency posts where all you have to do is hit a button if any situation does arise.. There isn't a lot of security guards around but I really can not think of any incidents on campus that would warrant an increase of their presence. They do provide numbers for security escorts and safe rides if you feel the need for one.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Strictness: UCF is highly strict when it comes to academic honesty as well as drinking and drug use. We're all human, so of-course someone is going to do it but you most certainly do NOT want to get caught. I've had roommates who got busted with drinking (and noise making) and they nearly lost their housing due to it. I've also known people who got caught cheating on tests in class and they were definitely punished. Not only do you have to meet with the professor and talk about why you did it, you get a 0 for the test and have to take a class on academic honesty. Then you also have to submit a paper about it and how you learned from the class and etc...

4 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: It's UCF. There's a lot of pride in this school so the facilities are generally pretty awesome and clean. Just minor things could be a bit more tidy every now and then but this is a HUGE school.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Security Is on Point and the Health Center Is Impressive. The security is very tight at UCF, never many incidents. Also the Health center gives a sense of security as I know if I become ill or injured, there is an on-campus facility for treatment.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: A Multi-Cultural Fashion Parade! There are so many cultures who attend UCF. It is always interesting to see the different looks and styles each student represents. Everyone really takes pride in their personal style. A lot of students represent the university by wearing official UCF gear.

College Senior

Nightlife: I Am an Adult Student, I Do Not Participate. I am a 32 year old student with a family and life outside of campus so I can't say.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: A Type of Girl for Anyone – If your into women UCF is the place to go. The girls there are pretty hot and there are a lot of them too. It's a big melting pot of a school because the student body is so large so there is a type of girl for pretty much anyone.

4 College Senior

Weather: Its florida! The weather is always great! but you do have to deal with humidity and the occasional hurricane.

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!
