5 College Sophomore

Weather: If you don't like heat, you won't like it here. I love it, it is usually sunny and hot. It is typical Florida weather- it could change at any moment.

5 College Sophomore

Transportation: Buses are a good option, especially considering parking is terrible. The buses run constantly all day.

5 College Sophomore

Weather: the weather at UCF is always beautiful, the occasional rain puts a damper around campus

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: So Much Food – Orlando is a busy, loud town. There are always parties, if that's your thing, but the main thing I like is the food. Any food you could be in the mood for, you can find it. That is the best thing about Orlando for foodies like me.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: My broad background involving Valencia,and student issues has afforded me the opportunity to work in a diverse work environment

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I believe that my chosen profession will enable me to fulfill my desire to, and to expand my communications base. Education has always been an important aspect of my life. Though I have striven for academic excellence, in high school I took courses that I never attained the information to learn. Always wishing to make the most of my education, I was willing to overcome the negative and I took the initiative after high school to not let it happen yet again in college. During my stay in college I have matured significantly for my academics. I grew up in a household where none of my immediate family finished or started college. I not only want to prove to my family, but to myself that not only can I live on my own, that I also can work two jobs and take courses full time as well as manage a respectable GPA.

5 College Junior

Majors: Health Information Management – I like the Health Information Management program at UCF. There are not alot of students in the program which allows one to work closer with the professors and Director of the program. The courses for this program are offered online and face to face with adds flexibility.

4 College Junior

Facilities: One unique thing about UCF is that there is always some event going on at the campus. The campus is really open with a great scene. There is always something going on outside between the buildings like contests, projects etc.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: The UCF campus area is surrounded by restaurants. There is a large variety of restaurants at average prices. However there are plenty of specials. I like Chik fil A because its healthy and fast for on the go students.

3 College Junior

Weather: Its Florida so you will have those random showers from time to time but the weather has never really affected by campus experience. Just have an umbrella with you and you will be fine.

2 College Junior

Parking: The permit is reasonable priced but good luck finding a spot. If you illegally park you will find a ticket when you come back to your car but having a car is not a necessity.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Downtown Orlando is close enough to enjoy, and is a great time if you are above 21. The bars around UCF are great too for people under 21 and serve as good time.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Rec and Wellness Center Is Excellent – Even with the number of students that UCF has they have still managed to make a gym big enough to support the student body. If the gym were bigger it would be really nice because when it is crowded it is almost impossible to workout but other than that it is a great facility.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: Plenty of Computer Labs and up to Speed Technology – There are plenty of computers on campus for students to print papers whenever they need to, the computers are high speed computers and make being a student really convenient to everyone on campus. They could increase the number of computers in the math and business buildings to ensure students never miss exams or study opportunities but with as many students as UCF has it is hard to have enough computers for all of the students.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Being the second largest University in the Nation, UCF has one of everything. The largest population consists of caucasion females and males. the Typical student is a white female in causal attire. The campus activities board provides the students with many concerts and comedic performances, those are the big ticket activities of interest on campus. A lot of students will lay out or play sports on Memory Mall, a big grass area by the UCF arena.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Although a few of the dorms are old, most of them are brand new and beautiful. There are a variety of options with housing style, you can choose between community style, suite style and even apartment style. They are all scattered throughout the entire campus, there is only one dorm that is way out of the way of most classrooms. The amenities are very inviting, the newer dorms are very clean. There are constantly activities for dorm goers to participate in, to meet new people and hangout. The cost is average with other florida schools. There is always someone that a student in need can go talk to, and help is easy to find.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The campus police at UCF is very involved in all of UCF's campus activites, etc. I personally feel very safe on campus, there are always security officers, prfoessors or faculty walking around. Campus crime is minimal which is excellent considering we are the second largest university in the nation. Any suspicious activity that happens on campus or around the community is put in an email or text message and sent out to all students and faculty, everyone is aware of what is happening on this campus. It is a very safe, educational environment to learn in.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: Taking the party bus downtown is tons of fun and its only $10 plus includes admission to 3 or 4 different clubs. The clubs around campus such as FUBAR and Knight Library are OK but they tend to be more trashy.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Ladies and Gentlemen – There is such a range at UCF that it is hard to determine a generic look for the students.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: There is tons of diversity on campus. Since there are over 50,000 students here it is hard NOT to find people that are different from you whether in regards to background, beliefs, religion and/or sexual orientation.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Good, but Could Be More! I am the recipient of several academic and music scholarships but I still have had to take out large amounts of federal student loans which will leave me in debt for many years following the completion of my degrees. I wish that the academic scholarships were higher and the music performance based scholarships were MUCH more, or full-rides similar to the system set up to recruit student athletes. Theatre and music majors work just as hard to perfect their art forms as athletes do to perfect their skills and we deserve just as much financial aid from the university.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: The Greek life at UCF definitely plays a major role in the campus dynamic, but these organizations do not overrule the rest of the student population. Though we have many sorority and fraternity houses on campus, if you are not in a Greek organization, you do not feel left out as there is so much to do and become involved with on campus. Those who are a part of Greek life, though, really do enjoy the social atmosphere and strong group of friends that you build as you become more involved in Greek life. It's also truly amazing to see what these organizations can do when they stand together for a good cause.

5 College Junior

Diversity: As cliched as it is, the student population falls well within the university's slogan--we are lucky to be a part of such a diverse student population. There are student organizations for every affiliation possible, from the LGBT community to the devout religious groups that meet regularly on campus. If you are looking for a group that shares your interests and/or beliefs, it is very easy to do so using the Registered Student Organization database online...with over 400 RSOs on campus with new organizations being added every semester, there is something for everyone at UCF and the students and faculty do their best to make sure that students feel as welcome as possible within the UCF community.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love UCF, it actually wasn't my first choice school. After my first week there I was convinced that everything happened for a reason. Between the help I receive from counselors, to the concerts, the events, the motivational speakers, I am always busy on campus. I love my school so much that just thinking about being part of these festivities motivates me to do well in school.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Honestly, I have never tried any sort of drug in my life, so maybe if I did the drug scene would be more prevalent at school. i am not sure if this review will seem biased for that reason. I am very conscious of the people that I surround myself with so I haven't really experienced anyone using or trying to get ahold of drugs. I have gone clubbing before, where I come into contact with many people. I have smelled the slight stench of marijuana outside of one or two clubs downton before but never much more than that. I have never felt peer pressure with drinking.

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!
