4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: All the dorms at UCF are relatively nice compared to other schools. Everything generally looks clean and spacious.

4 College Senior

Scholarships: the process is fluis and easy never had a problem with it. if i have any questions ive gone to the office and easily got them answered. THe tip is that you should do it EARLY because if there is any issues you can take care if them without missing deadlines

5 College Senior

Athletics: i cant provide a honest answer for this question because i dont play any sports nor any of the games. But i have seen the practices and the school spirit on campus, and if the games are as intriguing then it must be great

5 College Senior

Diversity: GREAT SCHOOL – the diversity in the school is great... the food and atmosphere embraces and promotes culture and individuality.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Housing off campus can be expensive. You're better off renting a house than renting an apartment. Most complexes have gates but it doesn't stop people from coming in. Security can be an issue!

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: In Orlando, there is Sea World and its sister parks Discovery Cove, and Aquatica, Universal Studios and all the Disney parks. As for shopping there are plenty of outlet malls. We are a huge college football city. Everyone here roots for UCF. The overall attitude of the people is a little poor and mostly tourists just looking to find their way.

2 College Senior

Parking: Room for Improvement – Parking on campus can be extremely stressful at times. There are an abundance of lots and garages available to students but I feel that UCF issues too many passes. Freshman should not be permitted to bring cars to school, and they should not be allowed to purchase parking passes. If we cut back the number of cars allowed on campus the entire parking experience would be a lot less stressful.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Abundance of Off-Campus Options – The University of Central Florida has an outstanding selection of eateries located off-campus. The surrounding area offers anything from fast food to fine dining. If I need to grab a quick lunch there is nothing better than Huey Magoos. The most delicious option at Huey Magoos is their chicken finger snack that comes with french fries and texas toast. Another reason I choose to go to Huey Magoos is because they are extremely supportive of UCF. The dining room at Huey's is decorated with UCF pictures and posters. They also offer a lot of options that are very budget friendly. In addition to Huey Magoos, there are quite a few other options that are all equally appealing. A student at UCF can never say that there is nothing to eat!

4 College Senior

Academics: Outstanding Resources Within Reach – I am currently studying for a future career in the health care field. As a Health Sciences major the courses offered at UCF are challenging, yet extremely rewarding. Each course requires a lot of time in order to read and study the material, but upon completion of the course you feel that you have truly learned something worthwhile. One of the greatest aspects of the Health Sciences program at UCF is the amount of amazing resources at our disposal. We are fortunate enough to have outstanding professors and academic advisors located directly on campus. These professors and advisors are always willing to help out a student in need. Another amazing aspect is that within minutes of UCF there are several prominent hospitals. These hospitals offer job and volunteer opportunities that will surely help anyone hoping to pursue a career in health care.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: First Watch Cafe – First Watch Cafe is the perfect place for a simple breakfast and/or brunch. This cafe can be seen as a more quaint and intimiate Denny's. Their meals are made with only the best ingredients and their fruit is especially fresh and sweet. Their muffins of the day are freshly baked and it is very obvious to the consumer. I recommend this place to everyone who is looking for a wholesome and filling breakfast. The price is affordable, and worth every penny you spent. One is located conveniently on University Blvd about 7 minutes from campus. Discounts are available to those who sign up on their mailing list.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: Technologically Current! UCF has plenty of computers (both Mac and PC) for students to use. It's fairly easy to find an available one since there are computers in every building as well as in the library. All the computers are running the latest software and operating systems. If you don't have a computer, you can check out a netbook.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Academic programs are great, and people are willing to help you in whatever you need. Campus life is also great; there are different thing you can do to take off the stress of classes and there are several fun activities to enjoy in campus

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Great Atmosphere – there is a lot of places to eat that are close to UCF. about 15 miles there is the millenia mall , disney parks are also close, universal studios. There are several recreational places around UCF

4 College Sophomore

Academics: At the university of central florida they are alway ready to help you in whatever you need.
Every process is fast and easy to do. professors are always wiling to help you. Also stydy areas and mostly all the areas are a great place to be

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: The Burnett Honors College – UCF's Burnett Honors College has allowed me to come out of my shell and be a total success in college. It has changed my life and I am very proud to be a member of it.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I Love Almost Everything! UCF is an amazing school. There are only three gripes I have. One, many classes are hard to get and I miss signing up for them. Two, there is no automotive engineering degree program. Three, some teachers speak rather bad english.

5 College Sophomore

Computers: Labs Are Awesome and Never Full – The lab at the Burnett Honors College at UCF is a friendly evironment, with nice computers, most of which are available at any given time.

2 College Freshman

Parking: Be an Hour Early to College! Although our campus has about 10 different parking buildings, it is extremely hard to find a parking space, considering our school has more that 50,000 students. It also depends on the time of the day, for example, it is fairly easy to get a parking space at night rather than during the day. If you live off-campus you definitely need a car, on-campus students might need a bike though.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: One of the main reasons why I chose to come to UCF was because of all the facilities they have to offer. They literally have the best gym I've ever attended. All the recreational sites are amazing. Overall the campus is very modern which is something very necessary for our generation. I am very happy with the decision I made.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Haven't Taken Any Major Classes – At the moment I have decided to only take my core classes, such as english, math, science, and the elective classes. I feel like it will be better in the future since I will be able to fully enjoy my major classes.

5 College Junior

Facilities: Athletic Facility – The athletic facility on campus is Amazing! It is very complex, so anyone can go there and exercise at any level. There are many different free classes to take, and staff there to assist you with anything you need. The Recreation center is motivation in itself because it is so big, clean, and beautiful!

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel extremely comfortable around campus, knowing that there are Emergency poles everywhere so if I feel threatened I can easily push a button and the police will be there within minutes. Knowing that the UCF police is available 24/7 and close by is very reassuring. Also, I highly appreciate the cleanliness of all facilities and maintenance of the rest rooms, A cleaner environment will lead to a healthier one.

3 College Senior

Transportation: Student Apartments off campus constantly have a shuttle running from 7am-10pm. This is very helpful. As for night life it would be nice to have a 7 night a week bus being as 2 nights is not enough and also does not stop at every complex. With the bars not being in walking distance, DUI's can become a problem.

4 College Senior

Parking: Drug Scene – I have never encountered drugs on campus nor has drinking been an issue. Tailgating has always been a safe and fun event for all of the students. The campus police have always been going around checking id's.

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!
