5 College Freshman

Diversity: There is a multitude of cultural diversity at UCF. Cultural diversity is widely celebrated through campus wide events and activities. There is even a multicultural center for students of any ethnicity. Recently there was an Islamic celebration, soon there is an organized dance class celebrating traditional african dances. There are many different campus ministries for any religion.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a variety of off campus restaurants within a safe biking distance from UCF. A lot of chain restaurants as well as some delicious hole in the wall places. With a UCF ID we are offered a number of discounts at restaurants and even target. There is a large shopping center .4 miles away from campus with fine dining and fast food. The prices vary from one place to the next and there are a multitude of options. Waterford is the nicest area to eat in, along with convinient shopping. Alayfaya has a great number of delicious and cheap places to eat as well.

Overall Experience: My Own Piece of Paradise – I love UCF! Being an out-of-state student that literally applied and accepted without even visiting the campus, I am completely satisfied. The school has a very good system, a great student government that is always improving, its active, and and overall beautiful campus. The faculty is overall good, I've only had a few teachers that I had troubles with, particularly in understanding their accents, but there are so many resources for academic help that you could learn the class without hardly going to class (even though you really, really should). The partying is left off campus so there is a good balance; Step off and have a good time, step back on campus and crank out some homework. There are shuttles for on, and off campus that add to convenience and safety factors. I would HIGHLY recommend UCF to any student, from anywhere.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Guys and Girls – There are a variety of good-looking guys on campus though where they reside and what classes they take is unknown to us girls. There are plenty of frat guys who can be spotted by their general attire of polos and khaki pants.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Food and Dining Options – The dining halls food quality is satisfactory at best but certainly not high quality. The food in the places such as Marketplace and Knightro's is usually the same menu selection. There are a variety of places to eat outside the meal plan locations but are not included in the meal plans.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The Cops Are Obviously Bored. The police like to focus mainly on j-walking. which is obnoxious because there is a lot worse going on. I get "alerts" sent to me almost daily of incidents going on on campus. The nighttime bike cops that patrol the campus are alright, one sat and talked to us for a few hours one night last year, he even bought us pizza. Chuck's the best. This might look bad but at least he was involved rather than just sitting around.

4 College Freshman

Computers: Computer Labs – There are a variety of options in computer labs in many buildings on campus. There are also various locations that can provide free printing such as the Study Lounge. The network is very reliable and the speed is satisfactory. Wireless access can be found almost anywhere.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek Life is a big part of UCF's atmosphere. However, the groups do not have a very good reputation and get into a lot of trouble, especially this year, 2011, with some incidents taking place that bring a bad perception of our campus life.

5 College Senior

Facilities: Great academic programs that offer students a wide range of choices. Professors are helpful and classes are easily managable.

4 College Senior

Athletics: Ucf athlethics are amazing and spirit week is exciting and fun. Knights all day!

5 College Senior

Computers: Printing on campus is fast, easy and convienient. The best part of it all is that it's FREE and with college students having so much going on already, it makes life a whole lot easier

3 College Freshman

Weather: No Happy Medium – It's rare you'll find a nice, 75 degree weather day. It's either hot as hell, cold as anything, or just miserably raining all day.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Paying for parking is a waste of money. It's a fifty-fifty chance you will find a spot to park before class unless you have left 45 minutes early to give you time. Buses are nice, though. Very convinient

4 College Freshman

Facilities: The Bright House Stadium is very clean, new, and state of the art. Recreational center is clean and friendly. There's a wide array of different restaurants to choose from within the student union. The library is vast and plentiful, with computer lab areas that are easily accessible.

5 College Junior

Majors: Elementary Education – I just recently changed my major to Elementary Education and I absolutely love it. The professors are great. I enjoy my internship opportunities and love the schools that I complete my hours at. My workload is a little rough, but I love the major.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Student Relationships – Students get along fairly well at UCF. Sometimes we are so busy and focused on school that we can tend to ignore other, but for the most part students are friendly.

4 College Junior

Computers: Printing on Campus – I love going to the Student Government Association Computer Lab in the Student Union to print very long documents that I don't want to print at home. The only downside is that there is always a wait. But it is so convenient and I love that I can save so much money on paper and ink by having access to FREE printing at the SGA computer lab.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: Transportation is readily available to all students and are frequently used. There are a couple different bus route options which helps students get to where they need to around Orlando.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living in Libra Community – My dorm is very spacious and not the "typical" college dorm style. I love how I have a sink area and a bathroom that I only share with three other girls. The community is very clean, and my building is very accessible to all of my classrooms. The cost is just right, making this community earn it's A.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Returning for a Second Degree - Hope This One Makes Me Happy – I originally graduated with a business degree that basically proved pointless in todays economy except to land me a secretarial or customer service job. Therefore I'm going back to get a degree that will hopefully put me in a job where my true passion has always been - with wildlife. Even just pursuing a degree in biology will open many doors for me. Sure, I may not get the best paying job but at least I'll be happy in the path my life took instead of running to get coffee for my boss.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Needs to Be More Student Friendly and More Parking! I'm back at this school for my second bachelor's...hopefully this time around I'll actually enjoy some classes. One thing I think this school really lacks is its ability to help out students. There are departments and buildings for each little thing and as a young adult already stressed about classes, financial aid and finding your calling it's hard to make sense of the college processes. Perhaps the university is too big...you feel more like a dollar sign than an asset. And the parking is horrendous! They make students pay an outrageous amount for a parking permit, yet we have to drive around for half an hour to find a spot - and this usually involves stalking somebody.

1 College Junior

Majors: Not very happy, if I could redo it I would go for something else at a different school. Only bright side is that I can take most or all of my courses on line. Program is perfect for Teachers, if you are not one, then you need to rethink this degree, I found out the hard way.

1 College Junior

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus or in off-campus housing.However, there is a lot of reports of shots fired, muggings, stolen vehicles, and home invasions. I would definitely stay away from off-campus housing.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: Dining at UCF is ok. Things are unbelievable high. At some places you even receieve less than you would if you where to drive off campus. There are some different places, but for the most part its all the same. It is worth it to drive off campus for lunch or bring your lunch.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek Versus GDI – My boyfriend is in a fraternity and it's a nice "family" scene, but I'm personally against Greek life anywhere on/near a college campus.

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!
