5 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: it really helps the students who can't afford food to be able to gather up some can goods for free

4 Recent Alumnus

Majors: Many Oppurtunities – UCF has a wide range of majors each with their own oppurtunities to excel and be involved. Some of the most common majors are pre--med, engineering, and business.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Strictness: Not to Shabby – UCF is not that bad, as long as you dont get yourself into trouble. Obviously you have to be careful at tailgates because the officers walk around looking ofr obvious underage drinkers, if youre smart about partying you shouldnt have any issues

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: It Could Be Better – UCF greek life does not have strong alumni support for it is still a very young university. Also many of the fraternities and sororities will run against eachother instead of uniting and becoming stronger. We need more support because the UCF administration doesnt give a damn!

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: I love the gym, its perfect. It has the right amount of equipment, the right amount of people to help and the right atmosphere! The Library is great because it has different floors for different types of learners,in groups or alone. The Student union is my favorite because it has so much to offer whether it be help from the information desk to great lunch options.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Like any college, parking sucks. Make sure you leave early to try and get a space, and it usually fills up after morning. But if you time it right you should be fine. Also, with most campus-affiliated housing, there's a shuttle you can take to get to school, which is very convenient, so there is no need to drive.

3 College Junior

Weather: It's Always HOT – It's Florida so it's hot almost the entire year...but it's Florida you know what you're getting into when you come here. The winters are nice though, they are like every ones fall basically.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Not Too Sure – I would say that they aren't too strict unless there is a major incident like someone dies at a fraternity party or something. I know there are a lot of students who drink underage and get drunk on the weekends, but at the same time UCF can't be watching over everyone all the time; it's still a personal choice.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: It's Safe – I've never had any issues with safety around UCF. There are measures such as Emergency buttons around campus. I'm not sure how much crime there is, but with any place, keep your car and doors locked, but I have never had anything happen with them unlocked.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Pretty Big School – A log of people aren't super excited about sports especially because we can't compete with UF or USF. The football stadium can hold a lot more people than show up at the games, also the fans don't support women's sports almost at all. The games are really fun though if you do go!

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Total Fun! There is so much to do! There are plenty of academic geared groups to get involved in. There are also plenty of places to hang out and spend time with friends. There are a million internship, research, and co-op opportunities.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: The network is hard to pick up in some buildings and is slow. Printing is easy once you find where you can do it. Getting access to a computer can be kind of hard depending on the time of day or day of the week.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: UCF is very diverse. Girls and guys usually dress in shorts, flip flops, and simple t-shirts. Everyone is very school oriented and there is something for every student to get involved in.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Grub Taxi – Since I live on campus and don't have a car, I usually utilize Grub Taxi, which is a delivery service of nearby restaurants like Dragon Court, Jimmy John's, and Chili's.

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Affordable Variety – I chose not to have a meal plan so I can save money. I usually eat at one of the restaurants at the Student Union once or twice a week and I always buy something different since they're are many choices such as Qdoba, Asian Chao, or Burger King. They're also more restaurants at Memory Mall that are readily available for all students.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: School So Far! There are so many choices offered be it clubs, activities or classes allowing you as a student to have the best college experience. My school is unique because there is a huge variety of everything and if you trully want to get involved in student life you are able to.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are many options if one is planning to live off campus. There are probably more cons then pros though. A pro is that there is a bus stop at each of these facilities available to those who do not have a car. A con is that these buses can run late and cause to be late to class, which has happened to me and many others before. Another con is that I have heard there is many complaints of stealing and peeping toms from some off campus housing places because unlike on-capmus housing there is not a lot of security and these communities are not alwyas gated.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Dining Services on Campus – In the student union there are many different options available to students and the service from each stand is excellent. IF you do not live on campus then you need not get a meal plan because it would be a waste of money, but if you do the dining halls are a great place to go and hang out with your friends while eating a variety of food.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: The area surrounding UCF has a lot of restaurants to choose from. The studet union which is located in the center of UCF campus has many food options. Burger King is a favoriate of mine. They also have starbucks, which is needed because us college students need our coffee. The prices are cheap and fair at the resturants.

5 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: Expensive, but Inclusive – The area is lovely, and the amenities are great! UCF is affiliated with two apartments right by campus, which look amazing!

5 College Student

Computers: Excellent and Available – The electronics available to the students are all up to date, and efficient

4 College Junior

Academics: My major is Human Resource Management. Human Resource Management is the function within an organization that focuses on recruitment of, management of, and providing direction for the people who work in the organization. I am a full time student with over 12 credit hours a semester, and taking four classes a semester. At UCF there are many facilities I can use. There is the student union, library, and student disability office.They make it easy for you to get a job and internship. There are many career fairs at our school. I enjoy the classes I am currently taking and the professors are very helpful.

5 College Senior

Majors: Plenty to Choose from – there are plenty of paths to choose from in orlando, if we dont have it then good lulck finding it somewhere else :)

3 College Senior

Nightlife: Needs Improvement – it could be better... more things school affiliated but not necesarily on campus

4 College Senior

Academics: They Make It Worth Your While for the Most Part – some classes are unnecessary and a waste of time but most of them are inciteful and i can see myself actually needing to use this in my future career.

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!
