4 College Senior

Campus Housing: I lived on campus for my undergrad degree in '02-'03 and '03-'04 school years. I lived in both the dorms and the on-campus apartments. I thought it was a wonderful experience and would recommend it to every new freshman. I met a ton of people, it was convenient to get to class, and it was cost efficient. The dorms at UCF are new, spacious and nice. It was a while ago that I lived there but it was an overall wonderful experience.

2 College Senior

Computers: Not So Fly for a Wi-Fi – The Wi-Fi at UCF used to be good and reliable however, they have just recently decided to change the service (not completely sure why) and now it is unreliable, slow and hard to log-in to. I had an entire class of students needing to work on laptops and none of them could connect to the internet! Hopefully, the kinks will get worked out soon so that we can all connect to the ever important Wi-Fi!!

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I received my financial aid but it took a while for my papers to be processed. It was a hastle to get my citizenship processsed because for some reason they would keep losing it and I had to give them at least 3 copies until they finally processed it. In the end I got my financial aid, I just wish it wouldn't have been such a hastle.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: There are people of all races and cultures at UCF. There is a whole seperate school for those who have english as their second language and I go there to volunteer and talk to the students to help them practice their english. On campus we all interact with eachother and no one is discriminated because of their culture.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are lots of options very close to campus, and there's a convenient free shuttle service. Some are very nice and very expensive, some are not so nice and sort of expensive. Crime definitely exists as it does in any major college area, especially since UCF is such a large school and Orlando is a big city as it is.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Never Really Worried – I personally haven't experienced any safety concerns on campus. I sometimes get nervous walking around alone at night, but I'd be nervous anywhere. I might feel better if I saw more police or even security guards around.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Overall positive academic experience. I've yet to encounter a "bad" professor. There are lots of resources but since it's such a big school it can be difficult to utilize them.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Being on a campus with the second largest student population in the country is a pretty intense feeling. With over 50,000 students we have plenty of things for all of them to do

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The option of free busing is great, but parking on campus prices are ridiculous.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greeks Don't Stick Out – We have plenty of opportunities to join and be apart of greek life, but once rush is over, you cant really tell the difference. They dont try to take over campus or have any abnormal control.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Close to the Beach and Well-Respected by Employers. UCF's Cocoa campus is great because you are close to many amenities including awesome places to eat and hospitals which enjoy the pleasure of UCF nursing students at their facility.

3 College Freshman

Computers: Not Many – For all the students, there are not many computers available.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Fun and Alive – I am taking online an online class, but recently I visited the campus for some extra credit work. It was nightfall, but the campus was alive! There was a band playing in a field with a large audience, some were playing sports, there were students everywhere heading to class, talking, hanging out. It made me wish I could live on campus! Orlando itself has tons of things to do. There are multiple theme parks, clubs, restaurants - pretty much anything you could thing of! The downside is that Orlando is said to have a high crime rate. I haven't had any first-hand experiences, but I hear about things happening all the time. Orlando is a great place to have fun, but may not be a safe place to live.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Apartments Allow Freedom! The apartments around UCF are great. The prices are about the same for any apartment complex you go to. Tivoli is my favorite apartment complex. The apartments are clean and you are in a community of college students.

5 College Senior

Diversity: Very Diverse – The student and faculty population at the University of Central Florida is very diverse. I believe this has to do with the overall diversity and major tourism in Orlando. Some of the foreign professors are difficult to understand. I really enjoyed getting to know lab partners from different cultures because it gives you a new, personal understanding of the different practices and ways of life.

5 College Senior

Facilities: The library is currently undergoing a renovation, in which brand new computers and technologically advanced furniture has replaced the old equipment. The study spaces are outstanding and really give the library an enjoyable, study atmosphere.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: Very Safe Campus – The campus is very secure and safe feeling. I have never heard of or experienced any occurances that would make one feel unsafe. The school is very involved and will send out text messages and email messages of any security alerts, such as strange visitors seen on campus. They even send out warnings of severe weather alerts and what to do in these instances.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel extremely safe on the campus of the University of Central Florida. It is patrolled 24/7 by the UCF Police Department. I also love the fact that the police department sends out mass emails to all students, faculty, and staff anytime there is a crime on campus, and/or any suspicious activity. Not only do they alert us, but they send another mass email once the activity has been successfully handled to let us know that everything is clear. I love the campus safety at UCF!

4 College Junior

Transportation: Out buses here at UCF come and go every 15 minutes on the dot. Whether you are at school, your apartment, or a friends apartment. Don't waste time and money in a car trying to find a parking spot.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: The University of Central Florida offers nightlife to help reduce the amount of durnk driving and help provide an atmosphere where kids feel comfortable around their peers like offering movie night. Clubs are insane around in downtown Orlando. Expensive cover prices, but it depends what you are willing to pay.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Convenience Is Optimal – The amount of variety around Central Florida is huge. Anything from Latino, Mexican, Italian and even Thai. They are always helping out with student discounts, and the supermarkets are plentiful. You won't ever run out of options.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Drug Scene – Drugs are not as apparent as drinking through out the campus. I rarely hear of an drug usage other than alcohol.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus housing is acceptable. Sterling Central is nice but can be very pricy. There are many apartments however that are reasonable in price and also nice places to live.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Food and dining is very diverse and there are many options for students. Very satisfied overall.

3 College Junior

Weather: Its Florida – If you were born and raised in Florida, you are used to the weather. If you are from out of state, it will be a shocking experience.

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!
