1 College Senior

Majors: There is no possible way you can work during Internship 2 with being an Elementary Ed major. You are going Monday- Friday from 8-4.

College Senior

Campus Dining: Don't Live There – I don't live on campus so I have no clue how the food is there!

3 College Senior

Academics: Elementary Education – There is a lot of busy work that goes into being an Elementary Education major. However, the teachers here are really passionate about what they do!

1 College Senior

Parking: Unreasonable Price! We have to pay to park. I think this is terrible considering the price we pay for tuition already. If you don't have a decal, you get a parking ticket!

2 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Cocoa Campus – I go to UCF at the Cocoa Campus. You have your basic foods such as Sonic, Taco Bell, Little Ceasers, etc. Nothing extraordinary, but nothing totally disgusting!

3 College Senior

Academics: Practice What You Preach? I am in the Elementary Education program at UCF. We are told how informal assessments are key to building a great classroom. However, we are given formal assessments. I feel like the teachers should be using their classrooms as a model for our own someday. Also, I feel there needs to be more of a variety of teachers in the satellite campuses. I would like to see more teaching styles!

4 College Junior

Transportation: There are on campus buses going through campus and there is buses going on and off campus to housing communities that are close buy. Having a car is really the best bet because even thought there is not a lot of parking it gives you the freedom.

4 College Junior

Diversity: Its Diverse – There are many diversities at school and many people are very welcoming. We even have a exchange student program

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Buses and Taxis Are Very Useful. The school has its own line buses that run every 15 minutes from sunrise to sunset all over campus and to local apartments where students live. This makes taking the bus always practical and reliable. We also get a free taxi ride every 60 days that we are able to use at any hour, night or day.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I Dont Regret Engineering and Am Excited for My Future. I am very happy with my decision of going into the engineering program at UCF. The professors' doors are always open and very resourceful. Special classes are modified to incorporate engineering aspects into them and show of real life engineering practices. We are always being given internship and research program opportunities. I plan on getting into a research program that will lead to an intership and use that experience to land a great job.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: Fantastic Courses and Professors – I am very happy with my engineering program at UCF. I am put in classes like calculus and chemistry with all other engineering majors, and have special engineering based calculus connection classes. The engineering classes incorporate all types of engineering fields that gives students a very broad spectrum. We are always being presented with projects, interships, and research programs almost on a weekly basis.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Very Easy – The process of getting into my Civil Engineering major was very easy. When I applied to the school I just stated which major I wanted and at the time applied for an undecided engineering major, and when i was accepted to the school I was accepted into that major. Later during my first year I decided to change my major to Civil Engineering and that was as simple as clicking a new box on my UCF account that i wanted to change my major.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: It's central Florida, the entertainment capital of the country. Of course we have a good atmosphere. You won't run out of things to do here, but we do have our fair share of crime. Nothing to be paranoid about, though

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: No Problems – Considering that this is Central Florida, which is bustling and full of tourist, we have plenty of good dining options here. Food should not be a concern, especially since there are a variety of restaurants on UCF's campus.

College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Going to UCF is great because you are so close to theme parks and clubs. The nightlife is great.

College Freshman

Parking: With so many students going to UCF, parking is hard to find.

College Freshman

Overall Experience: UCF is a great college with something to do everyday.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Lots to Do. There is always something to do. Shopping is close, Movie theater is close. lots of stuff to do on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Easy but Expensive. There are lots of different places to live but they are very expensive. Getting a roommate is a must but it is still expensive with one.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Near Lake Eola – There are dozens of independent restaurants circling the lake, ranging from vegan cafes to wine-tasting shops. Most of the restaurants use local produce and are still able to sell food at a price reasonable for the impoverished college student.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Where's the Bus? There are shuttle buses that leave from different apartment complexes about every 15 minuets. But sometimes the buses are full so you have to wait till the next bus arrives and it doesnt always arrive on time.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: College Living to the Fullest – If you are looking for a true college exerience you found one. The students are responsible and focused on their work but when the weekend comes everyone is like "school, what's that?"

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Meal on Wheels – Most resturants in the area will deliver to you no matter if you live in the dorms. So if you don't have a car to get food just call and you can get it delivered. Most places are open late till almost 2 in the morning so if your hungry for a late night snack just call.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: A Parent Away from Home – The school is strict when it comes down to cheating and underage drinking. In testing labs there are always people walking around making sure there is no possible way to cheat. It is always up to the professors how they should deal with cheaters. When it comes to underage drinking and drug use the police are on top of it. It is impossible to get away with smoking pot on campus since RAs are always walking around and checking. In apartment complexes that are connected with the school have police around making sure parties dont get out of control and there is no underage drinking. If you slip up one time your parents are notified. By the third offense you are usually kicked out.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: library dosent have enough computer for exam time.

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!
