5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: A Bit of Everything – You can find all cultures, religions, styles and etc at UCF. It is a very diverse school and thats why I enjoy it so much. Everyone's main focus is their education and future! its great!

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: They Are Affordable! Orlando is a growing city. There is lots to do! Shopping, theme parks, and other schools that surround it. I haven't found any trouble in the avaliability for living and it is very convenient for jobs because of the tourism going on in this city.

4 Recent Alumnus

Transportation: When going to and from campus the best means of transportation are the UCF shuttles. They are always driving by every 15 minutes and the drivers are very kind. They will wait for you if they see you running down the street. Better than possibly getting a parking ticket for parking in wrong spot or expired decal.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academics: The majority of professors at UCF are people who have had hands-on experience in their field, so they usually have interesting insight, which makes the class more interesting. At UCF professors provide enough work so that my mind is always stimulated and I'm always pushing past my limits. I feel like I've learned a lot thus far, and the curriculum has provided me with a broad range of information to utilize in my future.

5 College Freshman

Weather: The weather in Florida is always nice and makes the campus that much more beautiful. The only downfall is a lot of rain but that's mostly during spring and summer months, and students only have to worry about it during spring since most of them don't do summer term.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: College Dorms Are College Dorms – UCF has many different types of dorms which is very nice. There's one set of dorms people try to avoid because they're not very nice, but all of the other dorms are great.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Huge Variety – There's a wide variety of off-campus dining near UCF. Not only do you have the fast food restaurants right around the corner from campus for students on-the-go, but you also have nice restaurants about 15 minutes away at the Florida and Millenia malls. Another plus to off-campus dining is that almost every restaurant near UCF delivers. So if you don't feel like going out, they will bring the food to you.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Financial is a very quick process at UCF but the only issue I had with them was that they do not keep in contact with you very well if there is something wrong with your application. You just have to keep checking back on it but a great plus is that they call you with scholarship information!

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greeks are pretty good at UCF. They tend to not be as cocky here as they are at other schools. They hang out with everyone and everyone is very friendly at the school.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Nightlife at UCF is amazing! There is a place for everyone to go. It's not super strict on age so there are places for Freshmen to go out to too.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Depends Where You Are on Campus – Well this is true for all schools. The good looking girls tend to stay around the Humanities side of campus while the science and math section looks a bit dull. Coming from FSU I was still amazed with how many Hot girls were on campus.

3 College Senior

Diversity: Diverse Enough – I don't see discrimination on campus though my sample describes that their university has a lot of whites but that is not the fault of the University but may attribute to the region.

4 College Senior

Computers: Up to Date – In general most computers are up to date and the network on them is very good. There are a few labs in the Engineering building that need their computers updated because it is very hard to run the Engineering Software on them during the lab and has impacted the class. Wireless Access can be found throughout campus and is very fast.

5 College Junior

Academics: I think the major at my school is a definite learning experience, I feel confident that when I graduate I will be able to find a job and a great career in no time.

2 College Junior

Parking: Parking sucks. There aren't enough spaces and the permits cost too much, but the university IS making strides to create more parking. The prices aren't going down anytime soon, though.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I don't hang with the Greek crowd. The good thing about UCF is that you can be secluded in such a large school. You fall in with whatever crowd you feel comfortable with and that's all you have to be concerned about.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Food Off Campus – There are so many options around campus and just in the city. There's so much variety from your national chains to the mom and pop diners, you can get just about any kind of ethnic food.

4 College Junior

Facilities: Campus Is Beautiful – the gym is sick, the library is beautiful. its not old looking like most college campuses. very modern.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Pretty Chill – ucf is pretty chill. Just follow the law: fights not tolerated, underage drinking not tolerated. its the real world now, you can go to jail for it outside of school so don't expect to get special treatment for being in school.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Whatever You Do, Don't Move to Sterling and Ask Good Questions – I used to work for Sterling central and had to quit my job because of how immoral the management team is. They will do anything and say anything to not have to please their residents and the owners never know what is going on because the manager is blonde bimbo that they looove to stare at all day and could care less if she's helping boys half her age to pass drug tests so that she can hire them because she thinks their sexually attractive. I do recommend University House apartments they're going to be brand new!! Don't give immoral people your money, they don't deserve it.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I think UCF is a fantastic school and would encourage anyone to go there

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: I have never heard of any serious drinking or drug activity and their is police enforcement for UCF for miles.

5 College Junior

Facilities: There is a doctor's office, dentist office, optometrist, a dozen different places to eat, a gym with several floors and multiple sports fields, a barber shop, a Game Stop, a bank on campus and a four story library.

4 College Senior

Athletics: Athletics at UCf are very important. The friends I hang around with are very into sports but not on any of teh school teams. We do club sports though on campus and we love it. team spirit is pretty good at UCf. The gym is great!

4 College Senior

Computers: The Library has plenty of computers to use. There is also a printing lab in the center of the campus that will allow you to print out paper for free up to a certain amount. Wireless access seems to be good as well.

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!
