3 College Junior

Campus Dining: The student union is known for its food. At first it seems like a sea of choices, but after visiting frequently I get tired of the same food. The food places are : subway, burger king, sabarro's pizza, and asian chao.

Health & Safety: Safety Questionable? When I first arrived at UCF, I thought I was attending a safe school, but as I lived there for a period of time, I realized that there is no such thing as a completely safe school. There have been attempted abductions near the campus, a murder at the mcdonalds across from campus, and a series of acid bombs being made around campus.

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: The University of Central Florida is conveniately located in the best part of town. It's enrollment numbers are increasing due to its emphasis on education and involvement. Among of hundreds of clubs to participate on campus, there are attractions as close as directly across the street of the main campus. In this plaza there are three bars that are solely dedicated to college students. These clubs are Decko, Knight Library, and FUBAR. These clubs continously offer specials just for students. This makes it easy and close for students to access at their finger tips. Also at these clubs they offer party buses. THese party buses function to ensure the safety and fun of its students. It helps eliminate drunk driving. UCF is also in the center of a very basketball oriented town. Since UCF is located in Orlando, students gain access to the Orlando Magic games. Orlando Magic's star player Dwight Howard, has done numerous basketball and fundraisers at our campus. Also recently, UCF has gained major recognition for their newest additions to the basketball team. Michael Jordan's sons Marcus and Jeff are star players for the UCF basketball team. They have made major TV networks and increased audience attendance. The games are live and exciting. Also in sports, UCF's football team is now part of a major conference, enabling them to play top rated schools. In sum, UCF should be the number one choice among many students. It is definately a college town. It offers safe fun, endless activities, and students have a positive and proud attitude about their school. GO KNIGHTS!

Parking: Ucf has a huge student population and around peak class hours (12-4) parking is nearly impossible. you have to drive around in the garage and wait for someone to come up the stair and stalk them for their spot.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Very Whatever – There are a lot of pretty girls and pretty hot guys at UCF, the school is huge though so there are a lot of very mediocre looking people too.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Pretty Diverse I Would Say. I am an engineering student and I suppose because of that there are a lot of Asian and Indian students in my classes. There might be a majority of Hispanics at the school in general because this is Florida.

4 College Junior

Majors: Speech-Language Pathology – it's a very great place to study this field. the instructors are great. But as a grad student it becomes very expensive and not many scholarships are available to us, even with such shortage of SLPs in the country.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Great School – The location is great, there is always something to do and the academic life is taken seriously.

5 College Senior

Facilities: We have a very good gym for weight machines, group excersise, or basketball. Our library has 4 floors and has a lot of information for students as well as quiet rooms/floors to study.

4 College Senior

Computers: Computer Labs, Printing Stations, Wireless Access – Overall, our computer availablility and technology is very good.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: My major has it's own college and the administrators and counselors are very helpful with course selection, job search and etc. The professors are very knowledgeable and great at relaying the information.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love UCF. It is the perfect environment where everything is no more than a 5 minute drive and there are 4 different malls within 20 minutes of driving. I rushed a sorority and it was the best decision ever. I have gotten so involved on my campus and I would do it exactly the same if I was given a chance to do it all over again.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: UCF offers a wide variety of dinning options on camps. There's a subway and smoothie place in the gym. Theres a mexican food stand near the library. There's a cafe in the library and the bookstore. There's over 10 different restaurants to chose from in the student union including staples like burger king and sbarro, but also including 1 asian place, 1 sushi place, quadoba, smoothie king, a sports bar, greek food, and everything inbetween. Then there are two dining halls located on campus that offer great meals when taking advantage of the meal plan. Also, by the stadium there is a plaza on campus that offers a 24/7 dominos pizza, another asian restaurant, jimmy johns subs, and a frozen yogurt place. There are endless options on campus.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Could Have Been Better – I did not receive as much financial aid that I expected, however the process of getting what I did receive was very easy. They even deposited it straight into my bank account.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Second Largest in the Country – My school is the second largest school in the country and every one has tremendous pride for our school.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Defiantly Safe – At the University of Central Florida I always feel safe. They go out of the way to make sure students are safe by providing services like SEPS which will provide a walker to walk you from place to place from 7pm to 2am.

4 College Junior

Majors: No Internership – I haven't had any internship as of yet but I would love to go to one. I am looking forward to the experience more than anything. Finding and internship is quite difficult because I do not know who to go to for one. I would love an internship would keep me in their office for at least an year and had me do things that an employee would do.

Weather: The weather in Florida is mostly sunny. I enjoy walking on campus because it's hardly ever a bad day to not walk.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: Fast Food Chain – The food on campus gets boring after a while. It's all fast food and not necessary good for your health. They could have a wider variety and lower prices.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: School Spirit – 95% of the STudents at UCf have great school spirit the games are packed and the school helps rais funds for the athletes. We take pride in our Kniights.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Registration Process – The registration process is very easy and convenient. The staff is friendly adn very knowledgeable. They make your experience a very happy one.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Student Life – University of Central FLorida offers very secure, and comfortable places where a student can study. It has the most up to date equipment adn research materials to help a student suceed to the fullest. There are many benefite offered my UCF that will help in your career by giving you the most up to date knowledge about your career field. They allso offer career placement to help in your career path.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I've had perfectly fine social fun, and my classes are interesting and challenging, but the biggest problem here I have is the financial situation. Housing is very expensive and its extremely hard to get financial help here other than a couple small loans that don't cover much.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: There are many different diverse races at UCF, and many clubs supporting different races and religions. Though usually the typical race to be seen is white.

3 College Student

Campus Strictness: The police on campus more readily give out tickets for speeding or J-walking. As for other observances, the campus cops take underage drinking and drug use pretty seriously. Aside from police, one constricting factor is the fact there is no WiFi allowed in some dorms, which for those living there is a huge pester and obstacle.

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!
