4 College Junior

Weather: in general I like the weather here. Just in July and August it is too hot

4 College Junior

Nightlife: Clubs Are Ok – Clubs around UCF are Ok. however there are more suitable for undergrad students.

3 College Junior

Parking: low permit costs, but always hard to find a parking

4 College Junior

Athletics: The biggest programs at our school are football and basketball. Students always get free into the games and football tailgates at Memory Mall are unforgetable. The school has great spirit and always cheers on our team. Our athletic department is up and coming and each year we are breaking barriers. We also have Intramural sports to play as a rec league. Some of the sports include: basketball, hockey, tennis, flag football, volleyball, ping pong, water polo, swimming, frisbee, and golf

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I absolutely love off-campus dining around UCF. There are so many places that are great for students and UCF friendly. A lot of restuarants give you a student discount if you bring your student ID which is a plus. There are pizza places, wings, sports bars, sushi, subs, hibachi, wraps, smoothies, chinese, and italain restaurants and take out places all within 5 minutes of the campus. Any type of food you want you can find in 5 minutes. Most places are very reasonably priced and they disperse coupons regularly. My friends and I have about 5 or 6 usual spots we have been going to since we were freshman.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Soooo Much Stuff – Orlando is truly a college town. There is SO much to do here whether you want to hit up the club and party or just take a trip back down memory lane to your childhood at Disney World. Orlando has it ALL.

4 College Junior

Computers: Fast and Easy – The computers at our school are pretty fast and printing is easy.

4 College Junior

Diversity: There seems to be activities and informative sessions for all beliefs, orientations, political affiliations, and ethnicities quite frequently ont he UCF campus. It is quite pleasant to attend a school that embraces such diversity.

2 College Junior

Campus Dining: Dining Options on Campus – The majority of on-campus food options are almost exclusively corporate fast food chains, and most are way too pricey for what it is. However the student union does have a delightful Middle Eastern delicatessen serving gyros, tabuleh, and hummus. However, I have never tried the Knightros cafeterias.

3 College Junior

Facilities: The wellness center is one of the nicest athletic facilities I have ever seen. The main campus library has not only a plethora of excellent reference materials and books, but good multimedia resources also. Tuition went up 15% this past fall, yet all of the sliding desk pads that are stored between the seats in the main math building auditorium are broken or in need of serious repair. However, the landscaping is always in a superior condition and always a full staff maintaining it every single weekday. The student union is a real treat at UCF. There are always engaging activities, free exam scantrons (one free scantron per day), and places to sit and relax, socialize or study.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: I Don't Know – I see a lot of Greek life around but I couldn't really say how it is.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: It Is Great – There is a variety of bars/clubs to choose from and there are always parties to be found

2 College Junior

Campus Dining: Dining Halls – I think UCF could use a lot of work when it comes the the dinning halls. There are only two located on campus and with the amount of students there are I feel as though there should be more. I had a meal plan during my freshman year, but after that I would never want one again. The menu is very repetitive and gets old after a while.

4 College Junior

Academics: Popular Study Areas – UCF does a great job during midterm and finals weeks, by converting the student union into a place for studying. They give out free food at midnight and categorize each floor by different studying types, first floor for group studying and third floor for quite studying, ect. They also offer review sessions for many of the general education classes which are very helpful.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Convenient and Cheap – Shuttles are abundant as well as other possible options

4 College Sophomore

Parking: Strict Yet Readily Available – Enforcement on parking and subsequent violations is strict, yet there is a very open transportation system that feasible for nearly every student.

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I have not lived on campus and therefore cannot give a proper review of on-campus housing.

4 College Senior

Drug Safety: Don't Really See It – Don't really see drug use or even much drinking unless you go to a bar on campus or something like that.

4 College Senior

Facilities: Gyms Are Renovated – The gym at UCF was pretty good before but then they added on to it making it even better with more floor space and machines, and with an ever growing number of students the expansion pays for itself.

5 College Student

Guys & Girls: You will find all types of good looking guys on the UCF campus, from sophisticated, athletic, good ol'country boys and serious and studious. If you can't find what you are looking for here you might need to slow down and take a second look. The girls are beautiful, athletic, smart and sassy. We are all pretty laid back and relaxed here at UCF, but like any college campus, we enjoy our night life.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: We have quick and easy access to most major food chains just off campus from UCF. From Apple Bee's to fast food and Buffalo Wild Wing's to specialty spots like sushi, organic whole foods and smoothie king. Just a few miles away are the standard restaraunts like Olive Garden, Long Horn, Outback and Red Lobster. They are mostly very casual which is exactly our style on campus and you can find new and trendy places too.
Prices are about the same as any where else, with some places giving student discounts. We also have on campus chic-fi-la, subway, sbarro, chinese, and others.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Could Be a Little Better – I received some financial aid. The process was okay. Nothing terrible.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: Its Florida – Its typical Florida weather. Rainy season consists of a lot of rain. There is no spring, goes from pretty chilly to hot. Humidity and a ton of sunshine.

2 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: It's There but Can Be Avoided – Drugs and alcohol are visible on weekends and during some events on campus but if your not into that scene then it can be easily avoided. I have never been pressured to do anything and there are campus police to make sure nothing gets out of hand. Drugs is usually just smoking and there is much more drinking.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: You Don't Get Quite What You Pay for – The housing on campus is decent, but definitely on the pricey side. The better living quaters (the Towers) are naturally more expensive than the bottom of the barrel Apollo community. Honestly, off campus apartments and houses are the way to go.

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!
