1 College Junior

Drug Safety: It's There, but It Does Not Dominate – I do not do drugs but I know that obviously there are kids that do. I do not believe it dominates life at UCF. Kids understand that drugs are a taboo now, so if they do do them, it is in the privacy of their homes/dorms and they definitely do not share that information unless it's with friends who do drugs with them.

5 College Junior

Greek Life: VERY IMPORTANT – Greek life is beyond important to UCF. The greek life is what almost runs the school because they bring in so much money for UCF. Most students hate greek life because of the amount of influence they have and how they get away with everything negative that they do. Most students would agree that they definitely bring down the moral and ethical medium of the school because of their actions. I rate it an A+ because of how important greek life is to the school business, not because I feel that it is a good thing.

College Junior

Nightlife: I Do Not Take Part in the Campus Night Life – I do not participate in UCF off-campus or on-campus night life so I cannot give a fair/proper critique or opinion on the matter.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: Parties and Clubs – In Orlando there are tons of clubs. Most of them are open to people 18 years of age or over, so pretty much everyone from the college can go. The clubs are always really cheap around here and are extremely fun. The parties are fun, also. There's good music and lots of fun people around.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I go to the University of Central Florida and so far I am pleased with the classes I have taken. I am an aspiring physical therapist, and the academic counselors here are a huge help when it comes to picking out classes. They really seem to care about your education and want to help as best as they can. They do a wonderful job.

4 College Senior

Scholarships: Finanacial Aid – I have not receive any thing from financial aid. Therefore, it will not be right to judge the program.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: School Experience – I enjoy my school very much.However,finding a parking spot at school can be a big task. I do not think that my school is no different from any other school because all of them are aiming for the same goal.

4 Recent Alumnus

Majors: Computer Science – One of the best departments in school and research is recognized world-wide. State-of-the-art equipments. Faculties of great standards and experiences

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Favorite Experience – State-of-the-art Recreation center and free for students. Monthly social activities on campus - games, prizes, events.

3 College Senior

Computers: The computers at my campus really slow and unreliable. Most of the time they are not available because they are not enough computers for students to use.

4 Recent Alumnus

Transportation: Free shuttle from neighboring residence communities. Free transportation on weekends to nearby shopping complex.

5 College Senior

Computers: Computer Lab – We have a really great computer lab on campus. There is over 5 different computer labs. We get free printing up to 40 pages a day (20 pages front and back). There is free wifi all over campus. People come into the computers to do homework or to go on Facebook.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Willing to Help – Even though UCF has 56,000 students, all of the professors want to get to know you and want you to go to their office hours if you need any help at all. I enjoy most of my professors lectures, but some of the science professors are really hard to understand so it is really helpful to go to the free tutoring offered on campus and the office hours.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Very Safe – I have never felt unsafe on Central Florida's campus even if I'm walking from the arena to Ferrell Commons at night. Around campus there can be some pretty sketchy activity and you have to remember to keep your doors locked at all times, but the campus police keep you well informed about all activity and are always present on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I really enjoy being a student at the University of Central Florida. I transfered here from another Florida school and it was the best decision I could have made. The campus is layed out really nice. It merges the old with the new and the surrounding area has a lot to offer. I've been happy with all the classes I have taken so far and there is a lot of help offered if you are struggling.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: It's Extreme – If you aren't used to the heat and humidity of UCF it can be a shocker. The temperature is generally above 80 degrees from the mid-April to October with intense humidity and intense sun. The winters only get down to the 30s at the coldest, but with the humidity the cold goes right through your clothes. There are also hurricanes from time to time. Once you get used to it, though, it isn't bad.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Everybody's Cool – UCF, being the second largest university in the nation, has a lot of people, approximately 55,000 of them. This means that, in terms of looks, our highs are high and our lows are low. However, with all the clubs, intramurals, and extensive Greek life, there is no reason that everybody here can't have an extensive social life.

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.

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!
