3 College Sophomore

Computers: There Are Computer Labs, but You Should Have Your Own Computer. There are free computers to use in the library and there is a printing center in the student union, but both have consistently long lines and, considering that most of the school has free wifi and all of the dorms have free wired internet for students, it is almost impossible to get by without your own computer.

4 College Senior

Majors: Hands on Wildlife - Animal Handling and Education – The internship involved a once-a-week class. If you intended to get class credit for it you had to complete 40 hours which could be done by volunteering at the animal education shows which were held weekly. Since the shows were on 2 different days and at different times, it was usually easy to fit them into my schedule even while taking classes. The instructor for the class was very knowledgeable and cares about the students.

2 College Senior

Parking: Hit or Miss – UCF is a very large campus so you can imagine how many students attend. On some days it has taken me over 30 minutes to find parking and on other days I get lucky and I can find one right away. There are so many different schedules that many students are leaving class during the peak hours so if you are lucky you can snatch their spot.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: The security level at UCF seems very effective. I have not heard of any fights, break-ins, or theft. You definitely want to keep caution at night and since it is such a large campus pedestrians should be careful of careless drivers.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: There is free transportion everywhere. There are lots of busses.

2 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Drinking Is More Popular – There is not really a big drug scene. I dont know anyone that does drugs.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Rosen College Housing – My freshman year I live on the Rosen Campus student housing. The apartments are new and nice but the people there are horrible. Everyone there is anti social and there is pretty much no social atmosphere. The price is a little on the expensive side so I would prefer to get my own apartment for less money.

3 College Freshman

Majors: engineering hasn't been the smoothest ride, but most things in life worth trying usually aren't.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: Get There Early – wake up early and try to get there before anyone else because the lines can get ridiculous.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: There is a wide variety of ethnic backgrounds and cultures at UCF, it is not predominately one race. Of course there a cliques where similar people congregate ,but that happens everywhere and should not deceive you.

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Plenty of Options – No shortage of restaurants and vendors to choose from. I don't think it has a dining hall. Never been to it if it has one. Lots of restaurants off campus, too.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I Feel Safe – Doesn't seem very insecure. Pretty isolated environment, with nothing but middle-class suburbs around.

2 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: I'm an alumni from the University of Florida, so I'm comparing UCF to Gainesville. The atmosphere here isn't nearly as exciting or student-oriented as UF. It's surrounded by stuffy suburbs and fast-food joints, whereas UF had a heart. I miss UF. I still go back every few weeks to hang out with friends and visit my boyfriend.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The school is amazing. You can get from one side of campus to the other in 15 minutes. Some of the professors seem to be more interested in their research than actually teaching, but if you land a teacher that cares, you will excel in the class.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: Shuttle Buses – At every open parking lot there is a bus that will take you either through campus or out of campus.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Sports are a big part of our university. Everyone gets involved in home games.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid people at UCF are very helpful and resourceful. They are always willing to help.

5 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Academic Integrity – The University of Central Florida seems to have a very strict policy when it comes to cheating. This university does not tolerate it at all.

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: There are a lot of options on campus from the dining hall to on campus restaurants.

4 College Freshman

Computers: Wireless Access – The wireless connection on campus is overall pretty good. However, sometimes it is down for some reason, or it randomly disconnects.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Student Involvement – students always come out to all the games and are always excercising and doing intermurals.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Even though most of the dorms are at least a couple of years old now they are still very nice. The kitchens and bathrooms are nice if you keep them clean and not too many bugs. The only bug i have seen are little sugar ants and not that many of them so if you just keep food out of your room them should stay away.

5 College Freshman

Computers: The internet is fast giving me no problems and the printing really is a lot of help since I don't have a printer with me. I am allowed to print a maximum of 20 pages per day and the computer labs are clean and the people that work there are friendly and helpful.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Better Than Your Parents Remember – The newly built dorms, at UCF include Nike, Hercules and the Towers. They all offer different options as far as apartment or dorm style. They are new, clean, large and in the perfect location. The state of the art gym, pool, classes and dining is just a walk away,

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: A Growing Atmosphere – Orlando is no doubt filled with activities. In the area surrounding the campus of University of Central Florida, it is quickly stepping up to fill the needs of its blossoming population. With bars, clubs, an out-door mall, and nearly every restaurant you can think of, there is never a shortage of options. UCF!

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!
