5 College Senior

Overall Experience: This school is truly a great school. There are wonderful professors that help you every way you can. Academic advisers are also there to help you go in the direction you want to go in. There is a diverse group of students and many events always going on throughout the semester to keep students entertained, busy, and full with knowledge.

Overall Experience: So far, I have enjoyed my experience at UCF. It was an easy transfer process from community college. I have enjoyed my professors and classes. It is a nice environment. Though the school is huge, the faculty works closely together.

Overall Experience: Great School With Great Environment – UCF been one of the biggest schools in florida makes it really easy to adapt because there's a lot of people you get to meet that means more people you can either study more and get help and find an easier way to keep studying.

Diversity: A Lot of People, a Lot of Culture – since UCF has approximately 56,000 students and is located in florida there is always going to be a lot of diversity and that is what makes it so great, you're always going to meet people that share or have the same interest as you do

Athletics: Not being a huge sports person myself, I cannot say how good our althletics department is, but I can say they have nice sports facilities and nice gyms for atheletes. There is a good amount of school spirit and student involvement.

Weather: what it's really good about UCF is that since is located in central florida the weather never gets too cold, theres no snow by the end or fall or the beginning of spring and the rest of the year is just like a beach weather perfect to wear sandals, shorts, and a regular shirt, so after a long day of study you can just go to your house and relax in the pool

Diversity: I attend the South Lake and Leesburg campuses for UCF, and I have seen a great deal of diversity. Coming from a small private school, I was almost overwhelmed with the diversity I experienced. In a few of my classes, a little more of a third of my classes were made up of minority students. There are also many of different economic backgrounds. There are some that come from well off families and others that come from families where they have children and struggle a bit finacially. It has been a good experience to see so many people from different backgrounds uniting in group projects, class discussions, and other assignments.

Facilities: Everything Is Modernized! UCF is a fairly new school so all of the facilities are modern and high-tech. The Student Union is loaded with big screen TVs in the cafeteria which provide musical entertainment while you're enjoying your lunch. The Gym has 2 floors with 2 pools(Recreational and Olympic), an indoor track, basketball, volleyball, and tennis courts, and plenty of advanced equipment and free group exercise classes for you to choose from. The library is HUGE with 5 floors and a ground floor as well and has plenty of computers, private study areas, and group rooms that you can check out as well.

Guys & Girls: Beautiful People Everywhere! UCF has over 50,000 students! It's hard not to find someone good-looking within sight with numbers like that. Also, there's a lot of variety. You like 'em brown, yellow, Puerto-Rican or Persian? If not, trust me, there's even more to choose from :-)

Parking: Tons of students means tons of cars on campus. The only thing worse then the parking situation is the traffic leaving campus. Parking is horrendous.

Academics: SI Is Great – Most classes you will be doing lots of independent learning. UCF offers lots of tutoring opportunities for students who may be falling behind.

Academics: Not Great – Professors are a hit or miss. Classes often jam packed with students. Professors delegate most of grading to TAs which can very detrimental to your grades. Overall, some professors are okay, few excel, but most are not great.

Nightlife: Tons of Options – Downtown Orlando has tons of options. Lots of variety and diversity give UCF the upper hand over most places.

Campus Housing: Could Be Better – Cost is great when compared to off campus housing. Access to campus is great; you can easily get survive without having a car as everything you need is a stone's throw away. Overall okay, but could be better.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: It's Getting Better – From what I heard from the past the school wasn't very diversify. But from what I have seen this year that status has changed very much. There are different groups of ethnicity and also different religious groups.

Parking: Learn to stalk exiting students to snag their space. Lots of circling in the garages. Better yet, park off campus and walk or bike in so you can save the $ for the permit.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of Options Near, Some Within Biking Distance – Variety of food selection and price points, but the vegetarian and vegan options are in downtown.

Local Atmosphere: Lots to Do If You Have Transportation – Orlando is not pedestrian friendly and the mass transportation options leave much to be desired.

Overall Experience: I Love It Here – Since I've been to UCF I loved it here the school is constantly growing and it's fabulous. There are different great place where a student can study and also socialize with other students around the campus. I live off-campus and so far it's great especially because the school provide shuttle to pick students up and drop them in the school. If I had to choose again I would choose UCF again without a doubt.

Guys & Girls: A Variety of People – There is definitely a variety of people at UCF. I can't think of an overall type of person you will find. There are nerds, hipsters, preps, atheletes. Just your typical college types. You won't find many country people though.

Transportation: Shuttles Are Awesome – With so many students at UCF, parking is a hassle. There is never a spot when you need one and end up circling the parking lot for a while. This is avoided by the shuttle system. A shuttle runs from all the popular, student affiliated housing every 15 minutes back and forth from campus. This is a great time and money saver!

Scholarships: Process Was Smooth – Financial aid is easy to apply for. Just fill out the FAFSA on time. Any other necessary steps to take will be listed on your "To Do List" under your MyUCF account. This ensures a process that is timely and not confusing.

Greek Life: Greeks Are Good – Greek life at UCF is very essential. It is very strict in it's rules and policies about drinking, grade requirements, etc. Greek students seemed to be much more involved in associations such as SGA, RA's, different clubs, or even just receiving better grades in general. Greek housing and dorm rooms are on the same level. Although, you will not be looked down upon if not in the Greek system, Greek life is definitely everywhere.

Campus Strictness: Frequent, Yet Reasonable Strictness – Punishments are frequent, however can be avoided by following simple rules. Resident Assistants are consistent in making sure their residents are safe and follow the rules. If a rule is broken, then effective and timely punishments are given. Same with the UCF Police. Parking tickets are the most common occurance. However, if you buy a parking decal you can avoid them.

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!
