4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Keeping It Sane – UCF does not tolerate academic dishonesty at all, and they make sure you know that.
Police are everywhere enforcing speed limits and keeping everyone in check. It makes everything seem orderly and safe. Overall I like the strictness. It's not restricting, but it sure isn't liberal either.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The food off campus is very expensive and it is much more cost efficient to make food at home in your dorm or apartment.

3 College Senior

Campus Dining: Not Good Choice of Food and Overrated – There's plenty of places to eat to choose from. The food is quite expensive though and is cheaper to eat off of campus. Also, there are not many vegetarian choices to choose from.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Lots to Do – Orlando is a big town with tons to do. Orlando is pretty much a tourist attraction. Since it is a tourist attraction, there's always something to do. There are theme parks, movie theaters, dinner shows, etc that individuals can go to. There's a variety of culture things that can be found in Orlando.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: A Little of Everything – On a typical day, UCF is flooded with a huge variety of people. From musicians jamming out of the music building and jugglers practicing under the shade of a tree, to long boarders cruising on sick rides, there's a little of everything to see. People are generally friendly and the guy-girl ratio is pretty decent. If you daily want to meet people from everywhere with every talent and interest under the sun, check out UCF.

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The Food Is Generally Good, but Varies – In the food court the food is good, but always the same and in the dining halls the food is only good at the beginning and end of the semesters. However, the food is very good during those select weeks.

4 College Freshman

Computers: Wifi Is Fast and Reliable – The wifi in the dorms and on campus is very fast and I have yet to have any problems with it. Every once in a while I need to re-synch with the system, but generally I don't have any problems.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I got all the financial aid I was promised and the process is very detailed and easy to understand on UCF's financial aid website.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: The Recreation and Wellness Center – Our recreation and wellness center is free for students and definitely the most accessible and largest fitness center out of all the Florida Universities.

5 College Freshman

Computers: I Don't Really Use Computer Labs at My School. The wi-fi at my school has great range so I can use my laptop almost anywhere around campus. Great wi-fi in our state of the art gym as well.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: There are plenty and more than enough facilities for the students. There is plenty to do on campus that you do not even have to go off to do or find something. Its like its only little city inside a larger city.

5 College Freshman

Computers: The computers offered at school are very reliable for the students. There is always some where to log on a computer plus there is wifi everywhere. There is even a couple of labs where there is free printing available for the students which is so conveinent.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The academics at UCF are very enhancing towards my education. Most of the teachers are passionate and willing to help when I am in need. Also they have numerous resources that I can go to if I need help or assistance as well.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: It's Florida – so the weather is very flaky and hard to predict. Classes never get cancelled due to weather.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Buses Are Abundant – There are buses that go to every apartment complex near UCF. They also shuttle students before/after home football games. I have never ridden the bus but from what I have they are a good option to have.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Rather Live in a House – There are a lot of student apartment complexes close to UCF, almost all of which do roommate matching. There are also a good bit of houses for rent.

3 College Freshman

Majors: Nursing Pending Is First – I am currently in Nursing Pending. We have to apply to get into the Nursing program which is really competative. I'm nervous I won't get in, even though I am trying very hard. The workload isn't too terrible becuase it was only my first semester in college. I can't really take any specialized classes until my junior year, and that is if I actually get into the program. The facilities at UCF are wonderful, and the passing rate of the nursing program is in the high 90 percentile.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Plenty of Apartments to Choose from – There are a plethora of off-campus housing to choose from. I do not live off campus but I have been to a lot of apartments. The only problem is they can be expensive and a little run down. They are currently building a new one right next to another apartment complex that is super nice. There are so many apartments to choose from, though, and most of them are really adaptable, homey, and nice. I don't know much about landlords. The safety of the apartments have been improved due to gates inserted in the front of the apartment. Parking can also be a problem but there will always be that issue in Orlando.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Food and Dining on Campus – There are two dining halls, however the food never seems to keep me full; it seems to be empty calories. They have healthy and unhealthy eating choices. In the union, there are also a plethora of places to eat that is either healthy or unhealthy to suit everyones fancy.

4 College Junior

Majors: Elementary Educatiopn – I love my major and all the classes I have to take. They all allow you to go into the schools and really get involved. They prepare you for all types of situations. I am planning on getting a job at a school near campus once I have graduated. UCF's Education degree is held in high respect and many UCF students will get jobs in the schools where they intern.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: School Spirit – UCF is unique in all areas just research the school. I love spirit splash because this is the only time you will see thousands of people running into a big fountain and partying for a pep rally.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Lots of drinking, if no drinking just crazy fun with friends. If you have problems that night, you can catch a ride with the great protection service we have on campus and etc. Night Life is great many clubs in Orlando and some across from the school. Some people can get crazy though. House parties are the best and are really packed.

5 College Sophomore

Computers: Fast and reliable all over campus. Free printing in some areas and you can rent out laptops while in the library soon ipads.

5 College Junior

Facilities: Recreation and Wellness – The gym at UCF is very modern and exciting. It is very welcoming and makes students want to exercise. They also offer many different classes to take part in.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: It Is Very Clean – UCF is more of a modern school. It is very neat, clean, and up to date

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!
