4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Campus administrators and faculty stress with persistence the importance of safe behavior as well as the consequences for acting inappropriately and participating in illegal activity. Police roam tailgates to keep students in line, however punishments are rarely severe for over-stepping these boundaries. Generally, if you're not making a huge scene, and you're walking around a tailgate with a beer, cops won't give you a hard time. I love UCF!

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Abundance of Choices – Just outside of the campus boundaries lies a road with over 20 different restaurants and cafes. Students with virtually any preference can enjoy a meal around the UCF area. Greek life hangs out at Applebee's because they're open really late and it's a convenient location for after chapter meetings on Sundays. Lazy Moon, Boradway pizza and El Cerro are also popular choices for their cheap deals and drink specials.

4 College Junior

Computers: A personal computer is a must, and bringing your own printer would also be a good idea because the printing labs are ALWAYS busy, and you can only print 10 pages a day. There are many computer labs, but there are sometimes time limits, and are not open all the tim.

4 College Senior

Scholarships: I got a good amount approved for aid and I got a UCF scholarship as well. It was a nice surprise!

4 College Senior

Transportation: Transportation in UCF seems to be right on point. I see UCF shuttles all over campus. I dont use them because I have my own car, but it seems to be a great option.

5 College Senior

Athletics: Athletic Facilities – The athletic facilities in UCF are amazing and the recreation center is great! You have so much space and so many options. In addition they have great classes such as martial arts, yoga, weight lifting, and much more. Its a great way to keep students active.

4 College Junior

Transportation: Transportation around UCF is pretty great. They have shuttles to and from all the local student apartments and even shuttles across campus.

3 College Junior

Computers: There are tons of computers in the library and computer labs around campus. They get crowded during the day, but it is still usually fairly in find one to use. The wireless internet access is sometimes difficult to log on to and can be slow. The Student Government printing lab is great though, it has free printing to all students.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: College of Nursing – UCF has a College of Nursing that has state of the art equipment. There is a whole floor dedicated to machines that simulate what actually happens in hospitals like the birth of a child or a heart attack. The only thing is that is it very hard to get into the College of Nursing because they only take about 20 students.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Bleeding Black and Gold! UCF is the greatest place to be! The social life is great for any student, classes are interesting, there are many study opportunities to help with classes, and the campus all around is a great place to be. I love being a Knight and I'm so happy with my decision to come to UCF. Go Knights!

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: So Many Apartments! There are many apartment choices arouns the University of Central Florida campus. There is only one that if affiliated with the campus, so it is the only one that takes financial aid. The other apartment complexs are all really nice and accomidation for college students. They are all reasonably affordable and some are actually really large for the rent price. It is not hard to find off campus housing that everyone will love.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Hot, Humid, Rainy, and Yet Amazing – Like all other universities in Florida, UCF suffers from the horrible and wonderful weather that the Sunshine State offers. It can be hot and humid, rainy, or darn near perfect. But hey, it is Florida.

1 College Freshman

Parking: Good Luck – The parking is worse than a nightmare; it is nearly impossible to find a spot unless you want to park far away from classes or get to the campus early enough.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Everyone is into our football and basketball team, but our football team the most. Support is abundant as well as athletic facilities.

4 College Junior

Diversity: Very ethnically diverse. It seems that most of the students are from middle class families. Religion and sexual orientation are very expressed. I have never witnessed or heard about any conflict in diversity. The only area I have not seen very expressed is political beliefs.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: The area surrounding UCF has all that you would expect; museums, shopping, entertainment, bookstores and libraries, clubs and restaurants and a downtown area. The only downfall is that everything is very spread out. To make that matter worse, the public transit is not well structured. Buses are not very frequent and routes are very inefficient. Sometimes it will take a couple hours of bus riding to get the same distance as a 20 minute car ride.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love UCF. The students and staff are friendly, the professors are friendly and helpful, and there are many things to do around campus.

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Large and Friendly – Orlando is an extremely large city. Because campus is not the main focus and the city was built before the campus was, there are many people who live near campus who are not affiliated with the school. Mostly everyone is friendly. There are many things to do in Orlando, and shopping is very close.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greeks Not Important – Greeks at UCF are known for their party and drinking habits. However, they don't run the school. There are many different organizations on campus that many different people are involved in.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Initially, I found it a bit difficult to track down helpful and accurate information on how to apply for financial aid and any specific critera, if any, that was required by UCF.

5 College Junior

Facilities: Student Enrichement – The University of Central Florida has gone above and beyond to provide their students and community with fantastic venues for cultral enjoyment. Recently, the school completed a state-of-the-art gym and concert builiding that are enjoyed by many.

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Something for Everyone – Central Florida has a little bit of something for just about everyone - from a bustling Downtown, to sporting events, to cultral events, to tourist attractions, to academic opportunites, and lots of outdoor recreation - just to name a few.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: Not Great – I have not really been able to get much financial aid. I don't qualify for the many specific criteria. However UCF does give automatic scholarships to some new students which I really appreciated.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I Enjoyed It – Living on campus worked well for me. I paid a LOT but it was worth it when I was a freshman and sophomore. Some dorms are nicer than others for sure.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Not Too Shabby – UCF has lots of police officers on campus which is comforting. There are emergency posts which could be helpful. I never really feel unsafe

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!
