5 College Freshman

Athletics: School Spirit – The athletics at UCF may not always be top of the game but our school spirit sure is! The most exciting thing about going to a game is seeing how excited the fans are in the stands. Everyone including the alumni are up chanting the our team on and you can feel the spirit radiating from the stands. To experience so much pride in a school is something I have never had the pleasure of knowing. I absolutely love how excited the students at UCF ALWAYS back our teams and show them we are truly there for the long haul!

5 College Freshman

Diversity: The diversity at UCF is amazing! The one thing that UCF tries to do is keep the campus very diverse. When I had come to UCF for orientation that was one of the main topics they had repeated over and over again about how they wanted to kepp the campus as diverse as possile for every year. I am proud to say that I attend such a diverse campus where I can meet people from all over the world.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Social Atmosphere – The social atmosphere at UCF is wonderful!! I have met so many new people and they are unbelievably welcoming! I've never had an experience like coming to UCF and it truly makes me never want to leave college. The activities that SGA holds here are also very informative and exciting so it makes the student body want to come out, be social and have fun.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: House Parties Are Prime – Club scene get's old fast. The bar scene holds on a little better. but the true fun is the house parties off campus

5 College Junior

Facilities: The campus of UCF is wonderful to walk around and explore, the staff and students are pleasant. I felt during my visit to campus that the on campus gym was full equipped with up to date machinery. The ultimate piece of machinery was the rock climbing that was readily available in the gym.

4 College Junior

Computers: On a recent trip to the campus of UCF I had readily available my telephonic communication device and needed to use the wifi to access the internet properly. The UCF campus has prompt wireless access and sufficient speed while using it. I had no issues while using the wireless internet on my phone and would highly recommend it to any future students or current ones that have little knowledge about the accessibility of the wireless internet.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Some Strictness, Not Much – There are some rules about jay walking and parking, but nothing too outrageous. The cops are fairly lenient and can be really nice sometimes. The rules have been easing up lately, too. As far as alcohol goes, just be out of clubs and that area at least five minutes before they close, because that's when the busts happen.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Very Safe – I have never found myself worried about my safety. I have no problem going on walks at 3 or 4 in the morning. The biggest crime reported this semester was someone stealing chips from a vending machine, so safety is never a concern.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The area is beautiful. There are clubs and many malls and theaters and such to go if you are ever bored. Every store you could ever need is a short drive away. The area is not sketchy or dirty at all, and I rarely find myself without something to do.

5 College Senior

Facilities: The campus is just huge, and there are a lot of people to meet and things to get involved in.

5 College Senior

Athletics: The athletics are superb, I enjoy going to different games and matches - especially since it coincides with my major.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: Lead Scholars Program – One great thing UCF offers in the Lead Scholars Program. Lead is two year program that teaches select students qualities of a good leader, while also encouraging them to volunteer throughout campus. Most Lead Scholars go on to host different volunteer events on their own. Many Lead Scholars also join Greek life.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Great Variety – Walking around UCF campus you can find every student stereotype possible. The possibilities actually, are endless. The guys and girls at UCF are interesting from their looks down to their personalities. Having such a diverse campus makes social life even more entertaining. At UCF you can always find something interesting going around campus and someone even more interesting to join you.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Intramurals Are Fun Varsity Sports Are Improving – There are many, many intramural opportunites for all skill levels. Varsity sports such as football, basketball, and baseball are starting to get national recognition. The atmosphere for football games is great.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Underclassmen Dorms Are Best – Starting as an underclassmen you get great choices for dorm rooms especially if you are in the honors college.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Gyms Are Awesome – The facilities at UCF are really good. There are different gyms on campus for basketball, volleyball, and weightlifting-all that the YMCA has to offer-and then some. The student union was newly renovated a few years ago and is very modern. There are fast food joints, places to study, convention rooms and classrooms. It's a very popular hangout.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Extremely Safe – The safety precautions at the University of Central Florida have always made me feel at ease. Each dorm is located in a beautiful location with at least two different locks before you can access you room. There is also campus security which offers to escort you to your room from any locations, incase you are uncomfortable walking alone at night.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There are some student discount places, but not much. My favorite affordable little Spanish place just closed, and I'm completely bummed about it.

4 College Junior

Facilities: Although it has it's problems academically, UCF has great internship programs and professional experience building opportunities, as well as a great college atmosphere including sports, clubs, Greek Life, and organizations.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Like Every School – Like every school financial aid is always a process. Visiting several offices , filling out paperwork, proving residency are just the beginning. Filling out the paperwork as soon as possible is the only tip that is recommended.

2 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Extremely Strict – Academic Integrity is taken way too seriously, and many students are automatically expelled if any kind of dishonesty is suspected. Campus police will pull you over if you are 5 mph over the speed limit. Extremely strict on drinking in dorms.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Two Dollar Bus – Regardless of where you want to end up going, you can almost always catch a bus that will take you to your designated location at the cheap price of two dollars. Several trips a week however can be costly to one.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: Small Variety and Overpriced. Dining on campus is somewhat limited, and is typically pretty overpriced. Dining halls are extremely expensive for mediocre food. Typical food types you'd see in a mall food court are available in the student union, but aren't anything special.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Cheap Compared to Home – While a student does have to travel quite a bit to acquire a decent healthy meal, finding one is not impossible. Several cross city trips enable a variety of different options. From Chinese restaurants to gourmet restaurants, from a cheap ten dollar buffet to over one hundred dollar meal. Overall being a student has it's rises and down falls.

4 College Junior

Majors: Every Major Should Require One – As a paralegal student, having a chance to spend a semester in a law office and do hands on work was very helpful. There was no pay but the program made sure that the internship involved more than just making coffee and copies. The time commitment and responsibilities were discussed and decided on an individual basis. Many of the internships led to job offers.

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!
