5 College Freshman

Academics: Positive Support System – As a large school, UCF has set up a support system that gives the college a "small school" feel. It is very easy to find the information to any problem that you are faced with.

4 College Junior

Nightlife: Nightlife ranges from bars/clubs, as well as house parties. There is a large variety of bars/clubs within walking distance of campus and most off-campus housing. Late night transportation available on weekends. Everywhere local is 18 and up, 21 and up in downtown orlando.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: So Many Options – Within a five mile radius of campus there are dining options for everything. Many have specials or coupons for students throughout the week.

5 College Junior

Facilities: Recreation and Wellness center has something for everyone to stay active while having fun. The student union is a great place to study or hang out or stop to eat.

3 College Junior

Weather: It's Florida...not too cold in the winter, random showers everyday in the summer.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: Great Shuttle Service – If you want to save gas or you don't have a car yet, you can take the shuttle which is really convenient in case you don't leave on campus. It will pick you up for free at any of the designated areas and even go inside your complex in case you live off campus near by.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Feel Free to Express Yourself – Everyone here is allow to speak their minds. We have over 56,000 students: there's a place for everyone.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Good Food Not So Good Prices – The dinnign services are good, the meal plan at first is kind off expensive but in the long run it helps but you're going to get tired of eating the same type of food almost every single week. Good thing there's a big menu where you can choose from.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Financial aid at UCF is actually really good, they give you enough money to pay for classes books and even room and board. They know what you need based on your financial status and they provide that.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: If You Don't Want to, You Don't Have to – Everyone is free to do whatever they want with their time. UCF is recognized as a big party school which in fact is true but more on the social party type school, not on the let's get drunk and wasted type of school. People drink lot like on many colleges but everything is measured and keep away from people that shouldn't be doing it.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: You Breathe Knight Scent – On campus everyone is school spirited to the max. Even freshman get to feel part of the school very quickly due to everyone's togetherness and school spirit compared to other universities we are really good in sports. There are many fields for many different types of sports for everyone on the starter level or the varsity level. There's no way people can not feel the school spirit on the air.

4 College Senior

Facilities: One of the first unique things about UCF is the student programs offered to students. Some of these programs include career services that setup workshops for students to improve in resume writing, interviewing and preparing them to become professionals. Career services also offers opportunities for students to get internships and co-op experience with real professionals to get real work experience. Another unique thing about UCF is the amount of opportunities for conducting research and engaging in research labs, which allows students to gain experience and recognition in their fields of study.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have been attending UCF going on my third year now and have to say I am very pleased with the choice I made. UCF offers students many resources and opportunities to prepare students for the professional world. I have personally gotten internship opportunities, met with many professionals and have gained experience that goes beyond the classroom. Overall I would highly recommend any student interested in taking their studies to the next level and go to UCF.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I would have to say I honestly feel very safe at my school. Being the second largest University, there are alot of students and buildings on campus, however the school has a police station on campus working 24/7. There are also officers that patrol the school and calling booths in case of an emergency. Overall the school has no tolerance for crime and illegal activity and takes serious measures to maintain the security.

4 College Senior

Scholarships: Just Be Honest and LOOK! I pretty much just applied for FAFSA and I was able to receive enough financial aid at UCF. The school is also generous in providing poor students with help and opportunities.

3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Not Much to Do – Only places around here are bars and night clubs. Drinking is prevalent among students because "there is nothing else to do around here." Theme parks are only for those that can afford it, other than that it is pretty boring here. Crime rate seems to be on the rise in this area. Local communities are friendly to students.

3 College Senior

Academics: Nursing School – Much of nursing program at UCF is pointless busy work. The design of the curriculum should be improved to enhance the students' ability to learn and actually retain the information for license exam and clinical practice. Workload for students require them to sacrifice sleep, without sleep, much of what is learned in class are not retained. Specific classes that are not as important to clinical practice or licensing exam should be made online to allow more class time for more important material.

5 College Senior

Weather: The weather is awesome here! Sun always shining mornings are the best!

4 College Senior

Campus Strictness: Campus Police – Our school is not very strict, There is not much action that takes place on campus for the most part everyone seems pretty level headed.

3 College Senior

Campus Dining: Dining Hall – The dining hall is very clean, we also have a variety of healthy foods and snacks available. I would definitely recommend it! The only issue I would think most students agree on is the price, it is a bit steep. But overall great quality, clean, convenient.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Upperclassman Dorms: Very Nice! The upperclassmen dorms at UCF are nice. They are very big and roomy. We're close to the student union and the library so we can eat and go and study. It is an awesome place to be living.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: There is always something to do at UCF, school related or recreationally. I would recommend this school based on the fact that you can NEVER be bored.

1 College Junior

Parking: Permit costs arent too expensive....if there were ever a spot to park in! Parking is HORRIBLE. Ive driven around for an hour and a half looking for parking. There are other options, such as the "Park and Ride" system; however, the majority of students arent aware of this.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: The campus is safe and patrolled. We get regular emails/notifications regarding any crimes in the area. Although there are crimes, I still feel safe on campus.

4 College Junior

Diversity: I've seen all kinds of races on campus and there are many opportunities to be involved in each one.

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!
