3 College Junior

Weather: Since our campus is in central Florida, we often have those afternoon thunderstorms. Luckily my parking garage and Education/Teaching Academy are close to each other, so it does not effect me that much.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life at UCF is pretty popular, but not as big as schools like Florida State, or UF. There's a handful of houses of the more popular frats and sororities on Greek Row, but there arent that many parties anymore. I have friends in frats and sororities and I dont view them differently.

4 College Junior

Facilities: The gym at Central Florida is such a positive outlet for me. It's a clean facility with a fun environment. All of our equipment is brand new and I never have to wait for any machines- it's huge. Also our student union has so many choices to eat and places to study. It's a hang out for many students.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: All of the amenities, social atmosphere, cost, and housing facilities are mediocre at best.

2 College Senior

Campus Dining: Menu, Price, and Locations Are Subpar – Overall, the choices are unhealthy, overpriced, and inconveniently located around campus. They treat it strictly like a business and don't offer a healthy alternative at competitive prices.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: Typical Metropolitan City, Big Campus – Since it's next to a large city, it has more crime than desired, however, the police presence on campus is definitely felt and they do a decent job. I haven't had any problems personally, but if anything off campus crime is much more rampant than on campus crime.

3 College Senior

Majors: Average classes offered, bad advisers, difficult to get involved

5 College Senior

Facilities: Ucf is such a huge university that it offers so many things for it's students, and because of the nature of the school being big it seems as though that there are events happening every week.

4 College Senior

Drug Safety: Drug Uses – personally I believe in the straight edge lifestyle, meaning I don't drink or do recreational drugs. I try to stay away from the drug scenery completely.

4 College Senior

Campus Dining: there are a lot of different places to eat. the choses range from fast food mega chains, like burger king and subway, while at the same time offer local( small chain) eateries that offer asian, mexican/ latin, italian and foods associated with other locations of the world. the prices and value of the meals ae fair for the most part

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Diverse Knights – The University of Central Florida is a place full of much diversity. Every student has their own unique, personal style that they bring. I don't see a lot of relationships happening on campus.

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Knight Food – The food and dining options on campus is well provided. There is much variety in the food. There is food from many cultures. The menu and places vary from Italian to Asian. The prices are at average. Sometimes, there will be specials going on for the students so that they can save money.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Knight Life – The safety and security on campus is at its finest. There are always security enforcers around campus to assist and provide safety for the students. At night, there are enforcers that drive around campus and help drive the students to their destination. I do feel very safe when I am on campus. I do not feel as if I should be worried about my safety. I admire the University of Central Florida and the protection that it provides for its fellow knights.

3 College Senior

Diversity: A Never-Ending Competition – It seems like everyone on campus is trying to outdo one another when it comes to fashion, play, and partying. I see too many Ed Hardy and Jersey Shore wannabes, too many frat bros or "fros". It just seems like alot of the students there are for the wrong reason, you're there for an education not to show off how much you can drink or your new spray tan.

Off-Campus Dining: Something for Everyone – There's something for everyone just off campus on University. From diners to steakhouses,to hole-in-the-walls and franchised brands you're guaranteed to find food to fit even the most diverse of palates.

1 College Junior

Transportation: After my freshman summer I moved into student affiliated housing across the street, where I've lived the last three years. The shuttle service went from being dependable and well timed to the point where if you missed a shuttle you knew another one would be along shortly, to the point where now if you miss a bus you might as well go home, because you've got a long wait ahead of you.

1 College Junior

Parking: UCF has some of the worst parking I've ever seen, and I don't even own a car. You're lucky if you find a spot, and if you do, chances are you've still got a five minute walk ahead of you to get where you're going.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: My Summer on Campus – Living on campus was more costly than living in an apartment, as I also was forced to have a meal plan because there are no kitchens. The dorms are also a good 10-15 minute walk from any of the classes, and in Florida chances are you're either dealing with extreme heat or pouring rain, so that was another strike against dorms. However I had a good time and made a great deal of friends, so I guess it wasn't all bad.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The UCF campus is not strict at all on anything. The pretty much let you do whatever you want. They are pretty adamant about not allowing underage students to drink alcohol and have RA's check dorms weekly for illegal drugs and alcohol to keep everybody safe.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus housing is really nice at UCF. UCF even offers free transportation to students who live off campus and that is very nice for people who don't have vehicles.

Academics: The Nursing program is extremely competitive. I 3.8 is the average required GPA to get into the program. The program only accepts 120 students every year so it is very important to make excellent grades.

3 College Senior

Diversity: Predominantly White, Several Minorities – While UCF is predominantly white I think that because it is such a gigantic school there are representations of many cultures in our student body. They make their presence known and assert a more multicultural experience.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: The off campus dining options are excellent. They have a much wider variety that what if offered on campus, with many more vegetarian options. The prices are relatively the same and some places stay open much later (especially if they are next to a bar). Some types of foods include: pizza (Lazy Moon), Pita (Pita Pit), cuban food (Rice and Beans), ice cream (Jeremiah's), and falafel (Falafel Cafe). All delicious and cheap options. I hope they keep open for business!

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Alot of Security – always police officers around and provide emergency updates

3 College Freshman

Weather: Summer and Spring= hot morning, rainy afternoons, hot nights
Winter= cold morning, cold afternoon, cold nights
Fall is a rare time when we have beautiful weather.
Florida is bipolar however and weather is hard to predict
But we have the perfect weather for beaches and tanning!

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!
