3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Punishments Are Strict – They definitely let us have a good time but they make sure rules are enforced!

5 College Freshman

Facilities: Not Just an Average College – Personally the University of Central Florida is an amazing University. The University is aimed at providing a well rounded education for their students but they also want to make sure that all students are getting involved in clubs and organizations. UCF's main goal is to prepare students with knowledge such as book smarts but also knowledge of real world skills.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: Orlando Night Life – According to the stereotypical college student I should go out often and drink all weekend, but I am one of those students that does not. But I do enjoy going out with friends and dancing. The location of UCF is amazing, right across the street there are a few bars/clubs in which offer different themed nights throughout the week and weekend so there is always something to enjoy. The cover to these locations are reasonable and there is security walking around the bars/clubs to provided a safe environment and to decrease underage drinking.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Best College Ever – I really like that we have alot of degress and professions availability at my college.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Currently I am living on campus but prior to Winter Break I was apartment hunting with my future roommates. The whole experience was exciting and every where we went they provided excellent service and it was affordable and some places even offered an RA for more security. Around our university there is an ample amount of housing to choice from with amazing locations, close to school, affordable, and so much more. The only downfall I have found with off campus housing is the parking, one evening I was visiting a friend and due to the limited amount of visitor parking, I had to park in a residence spot and my vehicle was towed. Not a very fun experience, parking should just be a free for all.

3 College Junior

Diversity: Very Diverse – Ive seen people of almost every background here at UCF! Its a little harder to tell the diversity of sexual orientation, but my roommate (who also goes to UCF) is a lesbian.

3 College Junior

Academics: GPA Is Everything – Im in the College of Sciences as a Biology major. Most biology majors at UCF are pre-med or pre-vet, so thats where a lot of the emphasis and opportunities lie, but as an intended wildlife biologist, I have to dig a little deeper and harder to find opportunities that fit my needs.

1 College Senior

Academics: No matter how much anyone complains about a certain professor they will not remove that professor. They don't care about the students.

2 College Student

Scholarships: School doesn't provide much financial aid so it's essential to apply to all kinds of scholarships.

4 College Student

Campus Strictness: Flexible Policies – The school has its rules and are always enforced, but the rules aren't unreasonable.

4 College Student

Drug Safety: Pretty Safe School – Althought drugs and alcohol can be present, there isn't peer pressure to do it.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: UCF is always trying to build tradition whether it is Spirit Splash or through sporting events. They are always trying to build school spirit in different ways.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Three fourths of on Campus Housing have been built in the last five to ten years. They are fairly new. One great perk is the housemaids that clean the bathroom.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: The faculty at University of Central Florida is responsive to student needs. The main gym on campus is newly refurbished and stress reliever due to the laid back setting of the gym. The Intramural at UCF caters to all sports and is extremely competitive and fun. The Student Union is a place where students can gather for an assortment of foods and where Student Government Association holds their school spirit rallies and give-aways. The Library is newly refurbished main floor is great place to study because of different technology and portable dry erase boards.

5 College Student

Scholarships: Quick and Accessible – I am attending UCF as a Freshman this upcoming Fall 2012 term. I have already received my financial aid paperwork in the mail and they were clear and helpful in listing my scholarship opportunities. My father and I were thoroughly impressed.

5 College Student

Weather: If You Can't Stand the Heat, Get Out of the Kitchen – Although UCF gets cooler in the later months of the year as opposed to other parts of Florida, it also gets hotter. Florida is known for it's wild heat and crazy sunshine. If you are fair skinned, you'll need to watch out! Florida also has bi-polar weather; don't be surprised if you get hit with a sun shower or a storm out of no where! I'm a Floridian so I'mused to all of this and biased when I give the weather an A. Even if the sun isn't for you, I think you can appreciate the clarity on most days.

5 College Student

Health & Safety: Large and Secure Campus – Even though the campus is like a miniature city, the security on campus is definitely there, and if you ever feel threatened, you can call to have a security escort.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This University is overall an amazing place. Fun People. Many great events. Always something to do. There is nothing that you can hate about this place, except for the long travels around campus.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Easy to Make Friends – The people on campus during the first weeks of any semester are always nice and fun to hang out with. It's easy to make a group of friends that will enjoy the things that you like to do in your free time.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: This Campus is a great place to meet new people and enjoy multiple forms of entertainment. The security and safety for every body on the grounds is a top priority for the staff. Just keep "fun" activities on the low.

4 College Sophomore

Parking: There is plenty of parking thanks to new parking garages.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: Many students come from all over to attend UCF. I think the variety of majors offered and the Florida weather make UCF a popular choice for students who are looking to maybe go to an out-of-state college.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of places to grab a quick lunch. There are also many places to have a nice dinner that cater to college students.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Does Drinking Count? Come game time, everyone seems to think that to have a good time, you have to get plastered. I don't necessarily agree, however alcohol isn't the only thing I've seen and heard students talking about. Marijuana seems prevalent, but it's college so they think they can get away with it. UCF tries to do a good job at orientation about educating us, but once the test is over, we don't hear anything else about it.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Could Anyone Get More School Spirited? The school spirit at UCF runs rampant. Everywhere you look, you see either a UCF shirt or bag, some with Greek letters some without. The campus involvement in the athletic department is great, although we don't seem to win very many games. If we win a game, great! If we lose one, well we can win next time. But no one has to guess at which school we come from.

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!
