4 College Junior

Transportation: Buses Are Best – The public transportation and on-campus transportation is pretty reliable. There are three city buses that come on campus, all leaving & going different directions. The on-campus shuttle runs in opposite directions & come about every 15 minutes. Its really convenient, especially if you have to go to the opposite side of campus. There are also housing shuttle buses that take you to off-campus housing. Makes not having a car too bad. Plus, it's FREE!!!

Computers: I've never had a problem having access to the network or systems that UCF provides for students. It has an excellent environment and network that is easily accessible to students.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Orlando, FL near the University of Central Florida has a great atmosphere in which students can definitely indulge into a fun scene when not in classes. Orlando is the number one place for attractions and tourist, this being true, it also provides over-the-top excellence when it comes to dining and activies; not only to mention the excellent live music scene. Orlando is an excellent place to be at when living and going to school at UCF. Great environment.

3 College Junior

Weather: The rain and the heat are the worst in summer months and at most of the Regional Campuses students should be prepared to get wet or sunburns!

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: The most popular drug used in our school is hands down prescription pills. But this is central Florida so I guess it is to be expected. Mostly you can tell the people who are high on pills, they come to a couple classes and then disappear.

5 College Junior

Academics: The professors found at UCF's main and regional campuses are amazing. They offer themselves completely to the students and want nothing more than the students continued success. With technology the teachers at UCF are available any time any place - even Facebook!
The classes are sometimes difficult but the work put in is defiantly worth the education!

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Guys and Gals – most people are taken, not many single people, very boring dress and appearance of people, social life is very very active and booming.

2 College Senior

Academics: Molecular and Micobiology – As a Molecular and Microbiology major, the curriculum is tough, the students get weeded out by the hard organic chemistry classes and 90% of all students in my major are pre-professional and competition is very stressful.

4 College Senior

Athletics: A wonderful gym facility encourages student involvement by making it very easy to find inter-mural sports teams and get involved. Fan support, involvement and school spirit at football and basketball are seen clearly at any game. The athletes are treated very well with a scholarship for groceries at a local grocery store. Team preform ace is outstanding, UCF football won the Liberty bowl this past year.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Everyone Fits in – From what I have seen there are many international students including different backgrounds, cultures, and languages. There is no majority race that is emphasized in the ads, events, or campus environment. There are different clubs for every type of religion, race, sexuality, and gender. UCF embraces all!

4 College Junior

Diversity: Failry Diverse – Since I come from a predominantly white community, the diversity seems preetty wide to me. however, some people may feel that there are more whites than others.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Ultimate College Town – It seems like every restaurant offers UCF discounts for students and many even donate large portions of food to charities, clubs, or events associated with UCF. UCF students work all around the nearby restaurants and you have an option for any type of food you would like within a few miles.

College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Haven't Checked Them Out Yet – Since I haven't started classes yet, I haven't really been able to see what kind of restaurants are around the campus.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Very Safe – Since Orlando does have a very high crime rate many students' cars are targeted if they leave valuables laying around visibly in their car, but I have only heard of a couple break ins on campus. There are plenty of people around on campus constantly which makes me feel safer, as well as multiple emergency buttons posted around campus. It is already a huge, beautiful, and nearly brand new university and it is still growing! I love it here.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Very Safe – I have not been on campus much since I do not start the program until August but the times that I have been there I have felt very safe. I also have not heard of many incidents from students I met who already attend.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Its Alright – I have been informed a lot about getting financial aid done and so on however, it is a lot more difficult that it seems.

1 College Freshman

Parking: In the summer parking is not bad at all, you will be able to find parking just about everywhere, minus the small lots. But in fall I have heard that it is a nightmare and you need to leave way ahead of time in order to find a parking spot and make it to class on time.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greeks Don't Rule the School – Not that I have much experience with Greek life whatsoever, but I have heard that it allows you to meet a lot of new people and have a lot of fun. However, it is quite expensive and not everyone can afford it. Therefore, if you cannot it is okay because if you are not in a sorority or fraternity it does not matter, no one will look at you differently.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The best way to get financial aid is to turn in the forms early because first come, first serve. Also, the best way to get the information you need is to schedule an appointment.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Social Dorms – The dorms at University of Central Florida are nicer and bigger than most dorms I've seen at other colleges in Florida. There are many floor meetings and activities that gives the students to get involved and meet other people in their dorm.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Safe Fun Environemnt – The University of Central Florida is located in a great environment. There are many restaurants just minutes away from campus. Also, the nightlife is great because there are bars across the street from campus which makes it easy to hang out with friends and meet new people. On weekends or days with no classes there great outlet malls nearby but also theme parks such as Universal Studios and Disney are less than an hour away. The University of Central Florida provides a safe environment for all students including buses that run late on the weekends that students can use.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: The only way you will run into drug users is if you actively search them out.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: UCF has every kind of student there could be. The girls are absolutely gorgeous and nice.

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!
