3 College Senior

Drug Safety: The drug scene isn't too noticeable, but it's present. But there isn't any peer pressure about it.

Local Atmosphere: There's always something to do in Orlando. It's fantastic.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: If you like city life, you like it here. Everything is at your disposal.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: The Health Center offers many services, but a lot of them are mediocre and give terrible advice that, when meeting with a regular practitioner, is refuted. The campus seems relatively safe- I wouldn't walk alone at night if possible, though, and would be weary of the parking garages at night.

4 College Junior

Academics: The workload seems to be a lot of in classroom experience and the classes are fun.

3 College Junior

Computers: The computer labs and printing on campus are very good. However, my laptop cannot make a wireless connection no matter how many times I try. Some people don't seem to have this problem, but other times access is denied. It is important to always know your NID for access to the wireless connection, but overall a computer is not needed for classes. On the other hand, computers are imperative to out of class assignments.

3 College Senior

Athletics: The athletics on campus are very skewed towards football- most of the other teams don't get much support or recognition from the student body.

3 College Senior

Majors: The portfolio process for Graphic Design is very weighed towards those who take classes at UCF- so transient students will have a harder time. Though, it isn't impossible. Make sure you take the core classes at UCF if possible. Especially Drawing I and II.

3 College Senior

Majors: Some professors are the kind to choose favorites, but overall the ones in the upper level classes are pretty great.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: You can find anything for any budget. It may not be the best quality, but it is definitely there.

4 College Junior

Diversity: There is something for everyone here. The campus is extremely diverse and accepting. Although some of the religious groups are a little overzealous.

4 College Senior

Computers: They're pretty great. They include great programs like the entire Adobe Creative Cloud.

College Junior

Transportation: I don't use campus transportation. I only use my own car on campus, which has been vital to my livelihood at the college.

College Junior

Health & Safety: I honestly don't have many opinions about safety and security on campus, because I don't know about any of the services. It reminds me of any college campus, which just means to use common sense like you would anywhere else.

3 College Junior

Weather: It's either extremely rainy, perfectly sunny, or scorching. You rarely see a day that could not be described by the first three labels.

3 College Junior

Majors: The process is a little confusing and annoying to get into the early childhood education program. You aren't able to register for any higher level courses until you complete all of your lower level courses, which can definitely effect the registration process. It is very important to ask questions to advisors and teachers so that you don't miss any critical dates.

4 College Junior

Majors: The teachers and my classmates are all amazing. I have not had a bad teacher in the program yet, and everyone is so willing to help. According to the professors, the graduates from this program have no problem finding jobs.

4 College Junior

Nightlife: You can literally find parties for all ages anywhere around here. There is not a night that goes by where someone doesn't know of something going on.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I think greek life is okay at UCF. I feel like it's not as great as in other schools because it is a newer school.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: it's really bipolar sometimes its really hot like 80 degrees then it's like 45 degrees out.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: its okay its very diverse i feel.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: housing on campus is great i never had a problem.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: it's obvious people in college drink from the parties and bars, drugs like marijuana on the other hand is not that obvious unless you know the people doing it or at a house party where people are doing that.

Campus Strictness: its a very strict school academically

5 College Sophomore

Nightlife: the night life is great there is always some party or bar to go to.

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!
