Scholarships: It's a long process, but the online aspect of it all is pretty standard and simple. To try and get an appointment with our financial aid department at my school does take a while, but they're all very kind and helpful once you are able to reach them. Although I don't agree how the financial aid is distributed. My family lives from paycheck to paycheck and pretty much relies on my financial aid to to pay for my tuition, but the only financial aid I could receive were unsubsidized student loans. On paper, it looks like my family makes a lot, but in reality they can barely afford to give me rent money each month.

Overall Experience: I absolutely love my school. Although it's such a large school, there are so many different opportunities right at my finger tips. There are over 500 different clubs/organizations at my school, and there's always something to do and be a part of. It's the second largest campus in the nation, and there are so many different types of people I have met in the few short months I have been here. I have become part of something bigger than I thought I ever would have been. The school spirit is so amazing and close, and I have had a chance to become a member of the Eta Lambda Chapter of Gamma Phi Beta here at UCF. I have met so many incredibly, smart and ambitious women and have had the honor and privilege of being part of the founding chapter here. My sisters are so incredibly supportive and caring, and they make me strive to be the best person I can be. Being part of a sorority was never something I thought I would ever have done, but this experience is nothing I would ever change or take back because I'm so happy that I made the decision to attend this amazing school. All my teachers have been wonderful as well. I enjoy actually going to their classes and listening to what they have to say, and they all try to make each day worth coming to and enjoyable.

Health & Safety: There was an incident last year that almost ended in many students losing their lives when a fire alarm was pulled by a man that planned to shoot the students that evacuated because of it and the police were extremely quick to respond and saved hundreds of lives that night. I feel very safe on campus and know that there is always a way to contact someone in case of an emergency.

Majors: I have not had an internship yet, but the university provides tons of resources to help place students into exciting and fulfilling internships.

College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There are all kinds of shapes, sizes, and looks of the students here. With such a diverse campus, you basically see every type of personality and every type of person from the kind of nerdy students with their Razor scooters, to the preppy sorority and fraternity students.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: UCF has many policies that some students find inconvenient, like the smoke-free campus policy but I have never come across anyone that was just plain rude about the way the enforce the policies.

Campus Housing: I have thoroughly enjoyed my time living on campus. It is extremely convenient and makes an easy transition into life without our parents.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: Florida weather can be temperamental but there are a lot of overhangs to escape the rain.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Financial aid can be a pain anywhere and you just have to be patient and keep your eyes open.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are so many choices that are in such close proximity to the University that you could find an apartment in your price range with everything you could possibly want in a first apartment.

Overall Experience: UCF has something for everyone. If a UCF student cannot find a way to get involved, they are just not looking.

Greek Life: Being involved in Greek Life is great. You get to meet so many wonderful people and create bonds with amazing women. The parties are fun, but it's so much more!! The activities we're involved in, philanthropic and others, just bring you closer with so many people who have the same interests as you. If you're looking for an internship somewhere, chances are a sister has/had an internship there and you can get the hookup extremely easily. Networking is easy-peasy. There are no bad things about being involved in greek life.

Off-Campus Dining: Some good restaurants. If you don't have a car, you can't get to majority of them though, which sucks.

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!
