4 College Freshman

Facilities: Orlando-Theme Park Heaven – Orlando is a very touristy city so there is lots of cheasy stuff to do. Theme park tickets and attractions are very discounted.
Winterpark is a swanky border town that has a nice farmers' market, parks, and nicer restaurants.
There's a mix of the big city and little town atmospheres.
It would be nicer if Orlando was a bigger more youthful city and was easier to navigate by foot.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Off Campus Frats – Practically all of the frats are off campus but they aren't very far. They are near or in the school associated apartment complexes.
Almost all of the sororities have houses that are nice and on campus.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: Good but You Need Transportation – There are frat parties and many clubs but the vast majority of frats are off campus-bike riding distance but you shouldn't ride at night. There are also a lot of clubs but you need to drive or ride the bus to get there.
The school offers late night bus services for off campus and nightly golf cart services for on campus transportation.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Everyone's Welcome – UCF is a huge school, and because there are so many students it is easy to find someone you can relate to. Plenty of multicultural students and most students are very accepting.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Dine Away! There are plenty of places to eat off campus! Some offer a student discount. There is plenty of variety and all of it is very close. Victorio's has the best pizza, and Waterford Lakes has plenty of options, and Sweet! is a must-visit!

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I Recieve What I Ask for and I Have Options – I recieve the Florida bright futures scholarship and thats all I really ask for. I can get loans but I'm stuck in the limbo of "my parents make too much for significant help but not enough to afford college". Finanancial aid could be a little less complicated

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports Are on the Rise – Sports at UCF are growing just as the campus is. We have a very good cheerleading team, and the same can be said about baseball, soccer and basketball. Our football team having just taken down Georgia in the last bowl game looks to be even better this season.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The school is awesome. From the campus to the partying, everything is great. I love this school and would never want to go anywhere else.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Our school isn't strict with rules. They let the students on campus go about their business as long as they don't take advantage.

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: Dining Halls – The dining halls are good on campus. There are two of them and they both offer a wide variety of food options.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: The computer labs are usually crowded at times, like midterms and finals, but besides that, you can always find a spot. Most people do have their own computers, and with WiFi.

4 College Junior

Transportation: Campus Shuttle – The University of Central Florida offers a shuttle to and from campus. The shuttle runs through most all of the local student living neighborhoods and even to some of the shopping centers nearby the campus. Overall, it is very efficient because the buses come every fifteen minutes.

2 College Junior

Parking: Although there are over 50,000 students that attend the main campus, there are obviously not 50,000 parking spots for each student. Therefore, parking on campus is very hectic. However, another parking garage has just been completed for additional parking.

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Such a Great City – Orlando is one of the major cities in Florida, therefore, there are an enormous amount of shops and restaurants near by. Additionally, Disney World, Universal Studios, and Sea world are only 45 minutes away from the University of Central Florida's Campus. The Campus happens to be one of the largest in the country as well.

5 College Senior

Drug Safety: Drinking Happens, I Suppose – I am not aware of any drugs being taken, alchohol consumption happens but it is not to an extreme degree. The students who drink, drink on weekends and appear to be responsible. This is probably because we had a madatory online course regarding alchohol upon admission.

3 College Senior

Weather: when it rains its not easy, and it can get really hot but for the most part its nice

5 College Senior

Facilities: The athletic center is convenient. The library is useful, and activities are plenty.

5 College Senior

Academics: I am majoring in Psychology it is a very interesting field, and you get to help others

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: School Saftey – I feel safe on the campus, there are always security guards driving around on golf carts and its safe

5 College Freshman

Facilities: The life at UCF is incredible. The university itself is like that of a small town. Anything you need, from a gym to restaurants, can be found within walking distance. Its very convenient!

1 College Freshman

Parking: The parking rates in my opinion are very expensive.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Everyone seems to accept one another in terms of diversity.

4 College Student

Campus Strictness: I am not sure exactly how strick some of the dorms are since I don't live on campus.
There is campus police and they do enforce the law. The parking service are very strick and they do enforce the parking to the letter; if you park where you are not to, you will get a ticket

4 College Student

Facilities: The campus is always clean and beautiful. The library is very accessibility with a café inside. The library has assistance with finding materials (since it is so large) copy services and rooms for group discussions. The campus has several eating establishments on property so you have a wide choice of meals. There are many activities to be involved in. The campus has a health center with many workout options including a large pool.
There are so many things available it is impossible to list all of them. My advice is to visit on the many tours offered

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Apply for as many scholarshipsas possible!!!!! That is my best advice for you!

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!
