3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Most college students enjoy drinking heavily also known as binge drinking. Most of my single girlfriends go out 3-4 nights a week and get drunk almost everytime so I would say alcohol usage is very high right now

3 College Junior

Transportation: Shuttles Are It Here – Inter-campus shuttles, extra-camous shuttles, shopping shuttles, city shuttles. Honestly, there's a bus or shuttle going everywhere and if you take the city bus, transfers are free.

4 College Junior

Facilities: If You Want It, They Have It or It's Being Built. One of the oldest buildings on campus is the library. It's five floors of nerdy, academic heaven. I've heard that there are more computer labs than the ones I know of- my count is currently at six. UCF has a recently renovated gym and some amaxzing- and more importantly, free- fitness classes from yoga to spinning to kickboxing. And if you ever get lost here, keep walking, UCF is made to be a fool proof circle.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Multicolored Vibes – Distance is key in Orlando, home of UCF. A step outside of campus and there's food, clubs, museums, shopping centers, and a multitude of different diverse places for activities. A little further and you have the famous Disney Land and Universal Studios. In the cracks there are coffee and tea cafe's, library's, and parks for those who want something a little quieter. It doesn't matter who you are, there's something to keep you interested.

5 College Senior

Facilities: The opportunites available. We are a growing new school.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek students are highly involved. They do have a negative stigma attached to some of them. There are around 10-12 greek houses on campus.

4 College Senior

Nightlife: I didnt start drinking until I turned 21. I don't enjoy going out around campus one day. That is more of the underage night life. I enjoy going further away from campus. Downtown has a lot of options. There is usually transportation for relatively inexpensive.

5 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Your RA is pretty much the boss or parent at college. They watch over you and make sure you are following the rules. They will come after you if you are breaking any rules.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: There so many different types of ethnicities and cultures on campus. Everyone is welcomed here. In addition, everyone has an open mind which is great.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Are always around at late hours at night which makes you feel protected. Overall great supervision.

3 College Freshman

Weather: we are in Florida so you expect hot days, rainy days and depending on the season really cold days

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: You Inly Get the Best – you will find out that guys and girls are the preppy type, they stay fit, dress properly and in average all of them are hardworkers

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Sports Rule the School – varsity sports are supported by everyone in and outside campus, the team is outstanding and they represent our pride on the field for UCF, everybody at school has the opportunity to exercise in amazing facilities.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Check the financial aid website for scholarship listings that are updated frequently. Also make sure to fill out a FAFSA each year.

3 College Junior

Parking: At the beginning of the semester it is hard to find spot because they don't start ticketing at first but as the semester goes on it gets easier and you understand where you should park at that time. A lot of people also take shuttles from their on campus housing to campus.

5 College Junior

Computers: Computer Savvy – There are computer labs and free printing available for all students .Also in the library there are many computers avaialable for use. There is also wireless access all over campus.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: apartments aren't quite as nice as they are expensive.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: Huge Campus – My school is different from other schools, because our campus is truly huge and new. There are so many people to meet and for sure you will have fun.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: What Makes My School Unique – Well, ucf is the second largest school in the nation and is also brand new. We have a reflection fountain were once a year we all get to go into and splash one another.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Biomedical Science – The biomedical science program isvery challenging, since we all wan to get into medical school, but effort is definetly needed. The workload over all is hard, but it can be done.

3 College Junior

Weather: Hot Hot Hot – It is very hot and humid during most of the year, but everyone loves to be outside and hangout before classes. During the winter months it can get a bit chilly for those floridans because we arent used to the cold.During the summer months it becomes the rain season. This can get a bit annoying because its rainy and very very humid so get to and from class can get interesting, but since most of the classes are about 5 mintues from each other it doesnt get to bad.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Varsity Sports Are Amazing! The Varsity sports are on the rise, the Varsity sports get alot of recognition from th community and the school as we try to rise to the top with the other florida schools such as UF, FSU and USF. The students faculity,staff,and the community get all dressed up in black and gold and knight pride! WE have the state of the art facilities, trainers, and coaches.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: orlando has alot to offer such as sea world, islands of adventure, universial and disney. There is also tons of shopping that can be done at the 2 outlet malls and the florida mall all 30 mins away from the University.The School has lot of school spirit ton of people from the city come and attend the football and basketball games. The stadium ad arena are always fully packed.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There are all kind of students from white to hispanic to asian. Mostly act as typical americans, hang out with their crowed but are friendly to everyone. Social classes are also, all over some can't afford much others have too much.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: They have a grat variety of places to eat, but the meal plan doesn't include them all and what it does include, it gets boring. The places are standard such as burger king, subway. They should have discounts for students, since we all have a tight budget.

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!
