3 College Junior

Parking: The parking situation is very poor, the busses to offsite appartments help, but finding a parking spot near to your particular classroom is difficult, the cost of a common parking sticker is less than 100 dollars for the year, which i do not consider a bad price, if you live on the campus property of an affiliated apartment you do not need a car, you might need a friend with a car for emergencies.

3 College Junior

Computers: Networks/ Outlets – the internet needs some help, when the most people need the internet to download/upload a paper the internet is slow, and unreliable. The school also need to be more accessable to personal computers with a low battery life, the amount of available outlets is minimal, you have to either get to school early and not move, or you have to be very lucky.

College Junior

Nightlife: I Dont Get Into Much – i dont go to many parties or clubs or bars. unless its a party thrown by a good friend its not my thing.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I Liked It – It was clean and convenient. I payed dearly for the cleanliness and convenience though. I like living off campus.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I Feel Relatively Safe – considering we no longer live in a world where you can leave your door unlocked at night, I feel safe on campus. as safe as i feel can be expected for such a large university unless they want to enclose us in an electric fence with key card guarded entries and officers every ten feet. I like that they email alerts when there has been a series of crime.

4 College Junior

Weather: Florida, the Sunshine State – It's the Sunshine State, folks. The worst thing about the UCF weather is during the summer when the temperature can feel like 110 with the heavy humidity. It's like walking through a light sauna. But the rest of the year, it's nice and warm. It gets a little chilly in December and January, but mostly heat during the year. Rain lasts a total of 5 minutes, max.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: UCF is surely a safe place to be, overall. On campus housing is your best bet to be completely safe, because it's patrolled and very well lit. The campus is large, but it has a very safe feel. Off campus housing is a bit more dodgy: not as well-lit, not often patrolled, and prone to break-ins. However, do your research about which places to live and which to stay away from and you'll be fine. Science Drive and Riverwind are highly recommended. Stay AWAY from Pegasus Landing, Campus Crossings, and Pegasus Point.

4 College Junior

Academics: The Elementary Education Major Details – I really enjoy my major at my school, in the College of Education, because I feel like I'm part of a community that is working its way to excellence. It's amazing to meet all the other education majors and share tips and experience. The professors are amazing (most of them) and knowledgeable. They are approachable and will help you with most anything. The workload keeps you busy, but it's very manageable. You learn so much, and that is worth it. Mostly papers, not a lot of tests. Many projects, and I love that aspect. The curriculum is great; the classes are all very helpful. The facilities are beautiful, organized, and we even have our own small library. Talk about cool, huh? I go there all the time to rent children's books for projects, meet with groups, study, and do online work. The college is very helpful with internship; they help us and are there for us when we need something. I love UCF's College of Education program.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Express Yourself – Everyone has their own fashion here whether it is retro or disco. Clothes are a way of expression and most people at my school do exactly this.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Ucf is a very diverse and accepting school of anyone. Everyone here is very open about what they feel is right and what they believe in. UCF is still a very young school and I feel here you can make a name for yourself and leave here being anything you want to be because, the students and professors here are not just students and professors we are like family and all everyone wants to do is help you become a better and more educated person.

4 College Junior

Nightlife: I am consumed by studying so don't have time to do the business major lifestyle

4 College Junior

Academics: The professors are very knowledgeable but they don't know how to teach that well.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: So Different – There are so many different styles the students acquire. There are the typical jocks and preps, and there is the punks. The guys and girls both have a very wide spectrum of interests and its guaranteed that everyone will find a group to fit in with.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: UCF has many diverse students and backgrounds. However, many of the students are white.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Completely Safe on Campus – I feel safe when I am on campus because there are alert systems everywhere and I know the campus is constantly patrolled.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Lots of Opportunities. UCF is great. I love it. There are so many opportunities to help further your career. If you take the time to get to know your professors and talk to them they will help you in any way they can. Everyone there is nice if you don't bother them they won't bother you. :)

4 College Junior

Parking: Get There Early – Parking is not as many people say it is at UCF. If you just get to school 10 minutes early you will find a spot. You just need to be patient and try not to run late. Not to mention they just built a new garage.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Drinking Is All Anyone Cares About – At UCF students love drinking. UCF is a wet campus so you can expect to find people drinking on campus. From what I can tell a lot of people that go there are okay with smoking weed but whether they do or don't I am not sure. Pretty much weekends are all about getting your drink on at UCF.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: My Unique University – UCF is very equipped with job opportunities for staff and students alike. Everyone is very joined together with little discrimination in any sense. Greek life is very opening, despite the sterotypical cliche. We have a "reflection pond" which is a magnificent fountain that students gather around to study, socialize, or "reflect." The set up of the campus is mostly walkways with the "student union" being strategically placed in the center acting as the school's heart.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Homecoming week and during any home game, UCF goes well. Not only do people who attend the university attend the games and support the team, but neighboring fans in Orlando as well. The whole stadium is filled with black and gold. The stadium was set up a few years ago and sits as a shrine for our fantastic players. Also, basketball and volleyball are highly regarded.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Coated in Safety With a Nice Crime-Free Center – UCF is constantly under surveillance to ensure safety within the Knight community. Members of the police force always make sure that no one speeds on the roads, helps direct traffic during major events, prevents and warns against underage drinking on campus. On top of that, there are frequent safety phones and emergency buttons for any situation.

2 College Freshman

Computers: We Don't Have Enough Space – For UCF being the second largest campus in the nation. We require SPACE! Something we don't always get. When you require half of the math taking students to get in 3 hours in math lab, you should at least provide computers for students who are trying to get in instead of being short changed and waiting for hours to get a computer!

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Pretty Safe but I Hear Stories Sometimes – I have never had a problem with security or felt unsafe but, I have seen two cases of theft on campus in a 3 month time frame. But, I guess that isn't super bad considering how many more happen elsewhere.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Everything is super convenient and fast when your going to the second largest campus in the nation with over 59,000 students. What we don't have in parking we make up for with food. There are miles of food places in every direction of UCF. As well as lots of grocery stores for cookers and its all well priced.

2 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Academic Integrity Is All They Care About – There is a very lenient punishment for drinking, unless you are in Healthy Lifestyle type dormitories. Academic Integrity though is seen as a serious offense and can end you in serious trouble. Parking is very strict in their citations.

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!
