2 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: I have no tips on getting financial Aid. I did not receive any even though my father gives me no financial help. He makes too much money for me to get any aid.

3 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: The main outward use of alcohol on campus is at appropriate times, such as tailgating before a football game.

Recent Alumnus

Majors: I have not yet had an internship. I don't have any concerns about finding an internship.

College Sophomore

Diversity: This is like that drug question - how am I supposed to give a rating on this exactly? I've not interviewed every person on campus, I don't know how diverse the student body as a whole is, and I don't really care. I'm hispanic, I'm queer, and I don't care and the fact that white normative people care so much about maintaining diversity quotas is very disturbing to me.

College Sophomore

Nightlife: I don't go to clubs or anything. Nothing against it, it's just not my scene.

2 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I've heard lots of horror stories from my friends who have had bad dealing with not only campus security but also the health clinic here.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: If I could do it again, I wouldn't come to UCF. I would've gone to a school closer to home. But at the same time, I don't regret coming here. That's not because of the school though, that's because of the people I've met here and the things I've gone through.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The campus cops harass lots of students, some who deserve it but most who don't. They're hired goons given some power who like to take it out on those of us who haven't given up on their lives like they have. Never rely on campus cops for anything or expect them to make something right. Unless you're someone important (or rich).

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Even though it says we're situated in a big city, we're actually about 30 minutes to an hour away from it. We might as well be a town unto ourselves with how big the campus is and how far we are from any other attractions.

1 College Sophomore

Parking: They gouge prices for permits - up to 200$ a semester. It's almost not worth it to bring your car to campus. You'll never find a parking spot and most stuff is within walking distance OR you can take the bus which comes up to campus and just get a bike to actually get around quicker on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: It's what you'd expect. Mostly fast food, a few restaurants and a few locally owned spots but nothing too remarkable.

2 College Sophomore

Facilities: This school is one of the most populated schools in the country, if not THE most populated. Because of that there's a very distinct scarcity of resources that leads to over crowded study rooms, computer labs, the library, etc. Also because there's so many students there's lots of crowds and attendance at most anything is packed to the point of not being able to take part.

College Sophomore

Majors: I've not been able to have an internship related to my major yet.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: The computers in the library were changed recently and they're pretty good. The computers elsewhere are decent if you need to type up essays or stuff like that, though don't expect anything like being able to burn CD/DVD's or being able to run any specialized programs. If you know you're going to need stuff like that, invest in a laptop (you can get decent ones for 500$ or so if you shop around).

1 College Sophomore

Athletics: I actually couldn't care less about football or sports. That's not to say I hate them or anything, they're just not a big part of my life at all. But it's pretty much everything at this school in the worst way. They'd rather make sure a football game continues rather than try to restore power and facilities to half the campus when the power went out during a storm recently.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: They're not bad, but they're not fantastic either. From my experience here you really should ask around about teachers and classes with other students before choosing to pick one. Also don't listen to advisors, since half the time they don't really know what's going on with the classes and will lead you down a path that'll keep you here longer.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: It's hit and miss. I've had some great classes and teachers for Cinema Studies, but I've also had some pretty terrible ones. Ask around, ask other students, go to the Film clubs if you can before the semester is over so you can get a feel for some of the teachers and what classes are what before you pick them.

4 College Junior

Majors: Every incoming Junior has to take a course called Cornerstone and in this course you have to do a Social Entrepreneurship project. It really allows the students to transfer the skills they learn in class into real life.

4 College Junior

Majors: I haven't had an internship yet, but I am working on it. There is a dedicated office for internships and many satellite offices located at the various colleges.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: We have our own campus police department located on campus. They always maintain a presence.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of restaurants around campus. Favorite places is Chipotle.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Everyone seems pretty normal to me. Everyone has a different style or interests.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Don't live on or near campus and I'm only on campus a few times a week.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: To get to the club scene you have to drive, there are bars and a lot of restaurants around the immediate area.

3 College Junior

Computers: There is wireless access and different printing labs. There's also many computer labs. Personal computers are needed because a lot of the classes are streamed online and Professor's assign homework and other things on them.

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!
