Technology: The school offers a guest network and a WPA2 network that requires a password. The guess network is unreliable and requires you to authenticate the connection every time your computer rests (ie the screen saver comes on). The WPA2 network is difficult to gain access to and often requires strange idiosyncrasies to be preformed such as changing your password randomly in the middle of the semester to regain access.

Transportation: The campus is very far away from other developed parts of Orlando. Without a car it would be impossible to navigate through town. Everything is very spread out and it often seems like it takes at least 15 minutes by car to get anywhere, if not more like 30-45 minutes!

2 College Senior

Overall Experience: I know I love nursing but I do not love the nursing school at UCF. I have heard from nursing students at other schools that their programs are more organized and easier to manage. I've also been told that our school has a poor reputation among other nursing schools.

4 College Senior

Diversity: My program is very diverse with people from several different backgrounds including religious, professional, economic, nationality, and sexual orientations. There are only 65 people in my graduating class so the vast diversity in our group is encouraging that other areas of the school may be equally diverse.

2 College Senior

Majors: I have not had an internship while attending UCF. However, I am in the nursing program and we visit several hospitals throughout Orlando for clinical rotations. We get very limited time in the hospitals and have been told by nursing staff that our school is known for having little clinical experience. As a nurse, this is the most important part of our education and I would like to be getting more experience.

Majors: I do not like the way my program is run at my school. The program is very disorganized and they often offer us critical information and the very last minute. If I could do it all over again, I would choose a different school. I still love nursing and know that its what I want to do as a career, which is the only reason I've stayed in the program. There are many financial issues facing the healthcare field right now and it makes me nervous about finding a job after school.

Party Scene: Many of the bars my friends and I like to go to are downtown which is far away from campus. Our campus isn't set up to be able to walk anywhere so it always poses the problem of who is going to drive. Everyone usually wants to drink and have a good time so it makes it very difficult to get home from the bars because cabs are very expensive when the bars are so far from campus.

4 College Senior

Athletics: Our football team is gaining increasing recognition throughout the country right now. It is good to see our program gaining strength and recognition and it is helping to build a sense of pride in our school.

3 College Senior

Campus Quality: Some of the building have interesting art work in them which adds nicely to the atmosphere. I feel proper study spaces are lacking campus wide. There should be more group study areas available where groups can be separated from other groups to avoid noise problems. For example, creating actual study rooms in the library that could hold up to 8 people and be rented out with a student ID would help to cut down the noise and offer effective study spaces.

2 College Senior

Parking: The parking is very expensive. Decals can cost more than $140 per semester. If you don't drive onto campus often, you can forego a decal and pay per day; however, the daily fee is $5/day.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: When I am on the main campus I feel generally safe although I do not see many campus police. I always lock up my belongings and advocate for my own safety through preventative measures.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: better to live off campus than on, more space and lower cost

4 College Senior

Administration: its great, not too many rules. school officials are calm and collected

4 College Senior

Party Scene: tons of things to do around campus, bars and stuff. downtown isnt too far away and there is even more to explore

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: tons of places to live off campus and more currently under construction, do some shopping around before settling at the first place you see

4 College Senior

Campus Quality: beautiful reflection pond, gym, and many student facilities

4 College Senior

Diversity: Diverse student population, plenty of hispanic, black, and LGBT clubs. Diverse student organizations, everyone is accepted

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Very expensive to live on campus, I would recommend living on campus in one of the apartment complexes nearby because it is much cheaper and just as convenient. You will likely get more space off campus as well

4 College Senior

Campus Food: Tons of places to eat, my personal favorites are Qdoba and Balagan

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Very safe, shouldn't walk alone at night however, just in case. Mini Shuttle service is available around campus after hours, the number is on the back of your UCF ID card

4 College Senior

Technology: Brand new flat screen computers in the library!

4 College Senior

Academics: Tons of internship opportunities for engineering majors

4 College Senior

Academics: some professors may be difficult to understand because english is not their first language, but that will happen with many engineering courses. on the bright side, you can teach yourself pretty well and pull through. most professors are excellent however

4 College Senior

Majors: Great pay for engineering interns and many opportunities around the area (Universal, WDW, Lockheed, Mitsubishi, Siemens, etc..) to name a few

4 College Senior

Majors: very satisfied with my program, glad i switched when i did

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!
