4 College Junior

Transportation: Transportation is provided for for travel within school buildings, surroundings and off campus sites and satellite locations. There is no need to pay as a student. If a zipcar is chosen it is economical and sufficient parking spaces are provided.
Bus, shuttle or car, all are equally good modes of transportation. If you don't want to drive, DONT a bus can get you where you need.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: It Is What It Is – They offer school transportation that goes from the school to the local apartment complexes so that students don't have to take the city bus.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: It's All Real – The guys and girls of UCF are real people. Very down to earth people who want to help you, the school and the community. It is a place were all sorts of people can be found. There are so many different types of people, it really is a giant melting pot.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: There are a lot of computer labs, but due to the student population, it can be difficult to find one. The wireless is available almost anywhere on campus, but in some areas, there are too many people using it, so you get a slow connection.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: Good, but Assistance Could Be Better – There are many scholarships that could be available whether you are a minority, have financial need or based in the area of study that you are pursuing. It is important to always keep in mind that the deadlines for the scholarships are usually early in the year for the following academic year.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Great School – Always wanted to go here and it exceeded my expectations.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Punishments Fair, Policies Lenient, Foolishness Unaccepted – Don't cheat, don't break the law and you'll be fine.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Academic Village – Best place to live (for dorms) would be academic village. It's the newest and nicest place to live on campus. Though it's a bit far from your classes but close to the gym.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: I love that our student union is opened 24/5. It provides extra time for extra study groups, even during the times you need to cram! The library is huge and is full of anything you need, and if you can't get it, the database allows you to get it. The gym is big and free to students! The stadium is nice! My high school graduation was at UCF, and I'm excited about graduating as a Knight on the same campus!

5 College Junior

Diversity: Very Diverse – There are students from all different nationalities, it makes it great to learn about different cultures that I have never even heard of. Every day as I am walking to class I hear students speaking different languages. It is the most diverse place that I have ever been too.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: To Many People – The school it great, the teachers really know there material and can fully explain it. the only problem is that in every class that I have been in there is too many students. It is very difficult to find parking spaces and you end up having very long walk to all of your classes. Other than that its great.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: Great, but There's Room for Improvement. I love the fact that my professors are flexible with credit hours and are friendly. They help with any questions you ask, and their specialized fields are interesting and keep you involved. I do not like how big the class sizes are. Sometimes, I feel uncomfortable asking questions in front of large groups (200+ students) and stay after class to ask them. This is time consuming and I have to write down my questions so I will not forget them. Other than the class size, I feel that the curriculum, buildings, internship opportunities, and workload provide a good program.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: Process Was Not That Bad – I had to fill out a couple of form which were posted on my portal, I filled them out and took them to the financial aid office to double check them then the hold was taken of my account.

1 College Senior

Transportation: There is really NO good public transportation in the Orlando area. No one takes the bus system and it is difficult to get a taxi. You need a car at UCF.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: UCF is the best undergrad school in Florida. It is not as uptight and stuffy as UF or FSU. UCF is a large school with a ton of degree options. The saying is "UCF - You Can't Finish" but it is more like why would you want to finish and leave this awesome school?

4 College Senior

Nightlife: Downtown Orlando – Downtown Orlando has a pretty decent nightlife. The only issue is getting downtown from UCF. The bars downtown are fun but the drive (especially if you are going to drink) is about 20 minutes one way.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Sorority Girls – Most of the sorority girls at UCF are very involved on campus, pretty and well rounded.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Large variety to choose from with very good quality

4 College Senior

Campus Dining: Wide selection of food/restaurants & great quality

2 College Senior

Drug Safety: The drug use at UCF is less popular than drinking. Drinking is a large pass time for many students. I'm sure that drugs are too, but I believe as far as colleges go it's probably pretty clean.

4 College Senior

Diversity: UCF is a diverse school. There are many different types of students all around campus. The only problem is that many like students stick together. In class though there are good mixes of students.

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: The dining on UCF campus is quite unique. No two restaurants or places to eat are alike. You can be sure to have plenty of variety and options when in the UCF food court.

4 College Junior

Facilities: State of the Art Gym – The UCF gym was state of the art when I first started attending in 2009. Since then there have been improvements, including expansion to accommodate our ever growing student population, to constantly offer students nothing less than the best when it comes to fitness.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: People travel near and far to reach the promise land of the "Happiest Place on Earth." At UCF it's right in your backyard! With Walt Disney World only being about 30 minutes away, and with discounted tickets for attending the university, you always have plans for you and your friends for the weekend! Other theme parks near the university include Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, Sea World, Downtown Disney, City Walk, Cirque Du Solie, Legoland, Wet and Wild, and Typhoon Lagoon, a boring day in Orlando is never an option!! Along with all these great theme parks is an atmosphere of quiet nightlife in Winter Park complete with cute mom and pop shops perfect for window shopping and restaurants unlike anywhere else. Leu Gardens makes for a perfect date night with their "Movies Under the Stars" the first Friday of every month. Life at UCF is never dull. Football games bring out the school spirit in everyone and really gives the university a sense of unity. UCF is unlike any other school out there and I'm proud to say I am a UCF Knight.

5 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Food Is Great – UCF has so many options when it comes to dining. There is food everywhere on famous and thenschoolnis in such a great location that there are so many great restaurants close by that I love.

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!
