4 College Freshman

Diversity: I feel that everyone at UCF is very accepting of who people are. There are so many different people who come from different backgrounds and I think that for the most part the community as a whole is accepting of that.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The variety of off-campus dining is almost overwhelming. There are so many choices to choose from when looking to go out for a bite to eat. Cost is reasonable and the convenience is perfect.

4 College Freshman

Computers: Printing on Campus – I believe that printing on campus is easy and efficient I love that at the printing labs the first 20 prints are free. It is great to have the reliability of the printing labs and the wait time is usually reasonable depending on what time you want to print at and which lab.

4 College Junior

Athletics: 55,000+ Students Enrolled – With 55,000+ students there could be more school spirit but UCF is young school compared to others with 200+ years of legacies. The football games and tailgating are a blast, and Marcus Jordan (Michael Jordan's son) plays on the basketball team. UCF soccer team is one of the beat in the nation and they have a wide variety of club and intramural sports available to students. Plus, the UCF Recreation and Wellness Center is one of the nicest in the nation.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Great Variety, Usually Affordable – Of course there's your usual fast food joints, but there is also a wide variety of healthy food choices in the UCF area. The selection of off-campus food is vast, and there are a few 'hole-in-the-wall' places that are cheap but absolutely delicious!

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Beautiful Place to Live – Orlando is absolutely perfect for college. Everyone is outgoing and friendly, I love the atmosphere of the college campus and surrounding areas. The UCF area definitely has school spirit and so much to do. Not to mention just down the road is Disney World, SeaWorld and Universal Theme Parks. The city of Orlando is gorgeous and with The Magic Professional Basketball Team, there is always something to do if you're not studying.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: All I have to say is the early bird gets the worm. The sooner the better, you can never apply to early. The financial aid assistance here on campus is great, they will help you through any bump you come across.

4 College Junior

Weather: Florida will always be Florida, sun is are friend. The weather here is great for the majority of the year. occasional rain comes our way but everyone needs rain. I would highly recommend this state to anyone for a great college life.

5 College Junior

Diversity: The students that attend The University of Central Florida are grand and warming. A smile is seen throughout the campus on any given day. The atmosphere on a day to day basis gives you the feeling of never wanting to leave. I love everyday I spend at the University of Central Florida.

5 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: GREAT LOCATION – EVERYTHING INCLUDING FINE DINING,SHOPPING, AND THEME PARKS ARE NEARBY. BEAUTIFUL SUNSHINE STATE OF FLORIDA

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Varies on Time of Day.. The parking permits cost too much considering that you are already paying to attend the school, they should be included. There are several parking garages and lots all over campus with enough parking for the faculty and students. In the morning there is no problem locating a spot to pull into, while as the day goes on it gets increasingly difficult. But its nice that there is no real designated parking for each class.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Wide Variety of Places.. There are several places to eat at UCF with lots of variety and fairly well spread throughout the center of campus (that I know of). Unfortunately I wish there was a better meal plan available where you can get three meals a week instead of so many seeing as I am a commuter... Fairly decent though. Its also nice that it isn't all concentrated in just one place.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: Easy to Use but Some Glitches – The SGA computer lab on campus is always bustling with students trying to get their stuff done and printed for free, which is always a plus. The computers in one of the physic's classrooms are not up to par however to run the programs for physics labs, although they work maybe an upgrade is needed.

5 College Junior

Weather: Mostly Sunny, but Then Again, It's Florida. Obviously there are going to be rainy days, but for the most part the weather is beautiful. There is plenty of trees to offer shade during the summer as well.

3 College Junior

Computers: Computer Labs Are Usually Crowded. the computer labs at UCF are nice but you often have to wait a while for a computer to become available and the internet connection can be rather slow at times.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: Strict on certain aspects to help a students' academics

4 College Senior

Facilities: The campus offers many facilities. I don't often use but I've heard great things.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Wide Range of People – Walking through campus you can see just about every "type" of person someone may be interested in.

4 College Senior

Diversity: Amazing Range of People – There are so many different types of people around campus. Also there are numerous clubs geared towards certain groups as well as groups that aim to integrate and teach different people about others.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: A Safe Feeling on Campus – Campus security is ample and always helpful. There are call boxes around the parking lots and buildings and officers monitor the area frequently. Further out towards student on campus housing there have been a few reports of break ins and attempted crimes physically to people, but I rarely hear of these things. Also the school has an email alert system which automatically sends notifications of any suspicious activity on campus as soon as it is reported.

College Senior

Drug Safety: No Drugs – There are no drugs apparent at UCF besides alcohol.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: The greek life at UCF is nothing great. Not every organization has a house on campus and in fact, only 4 fraternities have on-campus housing. The UCF administration hates the greek life and hinders our ability to grow and expand.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Plenty of Off-Campus Choices – There are plenty of off campus housing options. There's a wide variety of places to choose from and all of them offer somethings different. Some are closer to campus, some are cheaper. Each has its pros and cons.

4 College Junior

Majors: Theatre Program – The theatre program at UCF is great. The professors are excellent and there are so many opportunities in the area. The one downfall is grad students teach some of the classes. I like them as people, but I want the actual professors to teach me.

3 College Junior

Facilities: Campus Life – It's very much a social campus. There's always something to do. There are some really good programs here too. The arts is huge in Orlando, and the city and school is growing.

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!
