4 College Junior

Campus Dining: The dining on UCF campus is quite unique. No two restaurants or places to eat are alike. You can be sure to have plenty of variety and options when in the UCF food court.

4 College Junior

Facilities: State of the Art Gym – The UCF gym was state of the art when I first started attending in 2009. Since then there have been improvements, including expansion to accommodate our ever growing student population, to constantly offer students nothing less than the best when it comes to fitness.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: People travel near and far to reach the promise land of the "Happiest Place on Earth." At UCF it's right in your backyard! With Walt Disney World only being about 30 minutes away, and with discounted tickets for attending the university, you always have plans for you and your friends for the weekend! Other theme parks near the university include Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, Sea World, Downtown Disney, City Walk, Cirque Du Solie, Legoland, Wet and Wild, and Typhoon Lagoon, a boring day in Orlando is never an option!! Along with all these great theme parks is an atmosphere of quiet nightlife in Winter Park complete with cute mom and pop shops perfect for window shopping and restaurants unlike anywhere else. Leu Gardens makes for a perfect date night with their "Movies Under the Stars" the first Friday of every month. Life at UCF is never dull. Football games bring out the school spirit in everyone and really gives the university a sense of unity. UCF is unlike any other school out there and I'm proud to say I am a UCF Knight.

5 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Food Is Great – UCF has so many options when it comes to dining. There is food everywhere on famous and thenschoolnis in such a great location that there are so many great restaurants close by that I love.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: Gym Is Great – I love the UCF gym, it is huge and there is so much to do. I used to pay for a gym near schoolnthatbwasnt even as closentonhowngreat this gym is.ntherebare more pools and equipments than I have ever seen before.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I Love It! The school is wonderful and the administration and staff is so helpful. I have never had a school be so knowledgable and helpful before.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: They Are GREAT – All of my friends that lived on campus, loved it as well. The school was right there and UCF offers everything youncouldnpossibility need right on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Warm and Sunny – Usually the weather is pretty nice. The sun is typically shining and the temperature is in the 80s-90s. The down side is that it can get really hot, especially when you're walking around campus.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Love It – I came from a community college with a few local campuses. It was a huge culture shock transferring to a university with more nearly 50,000 students, to say the least! Campus life is the most exciting part of it all, the student union is by far my most favorite place on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Above Average TA's – My first semester at UCF has been a huge culture shock (coming from a community college), and one of the hardest things to adapt to was the size of the classes. At first I felt invisible because of how large they are, but I could always count on my professors teaching assitants to help me out. One class in particular, introduction to international business, I had a struggle keeping up with the magnitude of course modules and it reflected in my exam grades. The teaching assitants set up a meeting with me and went over (in-depth) my previous exams. I wouldn't have come out of the class with the knowledge and excellent grade if it wasn't for them!

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Knights Football – The football team at UCF is very prominent to student life. Going to games is a social event within itself, and the community always shows up to support. I've only been at UCF for one semester, so I haven't had the chance to experience more on campus sports but I do intend to!

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: We Pride Ourselves on Having a Diverse Campus – We have many white students at our school, but the diversity is pretty good. You can find people of all colors, body types, and opinions here at UCF.

2 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking at UCF between 11am-2pm is horrendous because that is when most students have classes, especially in the Fall. If you don't mind having class early like at 9am, parking is pretty nice.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: Volunteer UCF is an agency in the Office of Student Involvement that's funded by SGA. It offers all these great volunteering opportunities to UCF students and allows them to really make an impact in the local community!

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: The UCF is beautiful. It is my favorite place on campus and it is so big. We have an indoor track (1/8 mile) and 2 pools: 1 for lap and the other for recreational purposes. Our gym is 2 stories and it has a rock climbing tower that is 4 stories high inside. We have 4 indoor racquet ball courts and a million machines for students to use at their pleasure. We have a million different types of exercise classes for students like ballet, zumba, kickboxing, etc. The gym is amazing and it's very clean. It doubled in size last year, so it became even more epic.

5 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Tons to Do – There is and endless amount of things to do at night. From bars and night clubs, to comedy shows and jazz concerts. There is something for everyone.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: The biggest struggle I've come across so far as a business major is the universities ever-famous Cornerstone course. This course is required in your first year of acceptance into the business college, and is unlike any other course you'll find at another business school. Along with a lecture you are required to take a lab to apply what you learn in the lecture. The lab is one big project where you are thrown into the world of business and must find ways to raise $1000 for a local non-for profit company. I did well in the course, and I must add that I learned a great deal outside of the classroom. Although it took a lot of time and effort I felt sincerely rewarded from helping a good cause, and learned about business while doing so.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Dining on Campus – There are many options for dining on campus. From ethnic food to vegan to bar food. There is something for everyone.

3 College Junior

Transportation: Mostly Commuters – UCF is heavily a commuter school, so there are a huge amount of cars on campus at basically any given time. Cost always seems expensive to me, no matter what college I attend. UCF is no different. Parking passes are exorbitant. But it's fairly easy to park and whatnot. We have nine parking garages around the campus. Buses are also convenient. And popular for those living just outside campus with no cars. Scooters, bicycles, skateboards, and rollerblades are also very popular.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: What's Better Than Orlando, FL? The immediate area around UCF is a bit of a college town, with local business catering to students pretty heavily. But it's also a family-friendly area, with locals being typically very nice. There are many things to do in Orlando, more than I could ever list. Theme parks are huge here, of course. There are also quite a bit of bars, restaurants, shopping, etc. Beach is just a 40 mins or so drive away.

4 College Junior

Diversity: Great International Population – So many students outside the U.S. come to UCF. It's pretty cool to see. I've also heard countless great things about out International Services Center, catering to international students very well. There are resources for international students that I don't think they have at other schools.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Its Clean. I feel safe and there are always people on campus to run to if need be.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Never Felt Unsafe, but Have Heard Stories – I have personally never felt unsafe on campus ever. But campus security is transparent and open enough to send out emails when there are issues. So I do hear about minimal security breaches and whatnot. The only other reason I specified a "B" grade was because, several times, I called our on-campus SEPS (Safe Escort Patrol Services) to give me ride back to my car at night when my class is far, they haven't answered. But I know other people who have never had a problem.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Upkept and Well Maintained – On campus housing is wonderful no option is a bad choice compared to other campuses. Off campus financially choosing what is most fitting there are any options and different variations of living available.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Very Time Consuming – When I transfer to the University of Central Florida my financial aid paperwork got lost therefore making the process very long and tiring. At the end eberything worked out. My advice is to know due dates before hand and call your financial aid advisor.

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!
