1 Recent Alumnus

Parking: Pretty hard to find a spot and you have to pay for it.

4 College Senior

Weather: It's Florida, so it is hit or miss. Most of the time it is nice and sunny. But there are also the times we experience torrential downpours. It never hurts to carry around an umbrella just in case.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There is an abundance of off-campus dining. Not only are most open late, most offer student discounts and have very friendly wait-staff.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: It was very difficult to find scholarships at the University that appealed to me. It was just as difficult to qualify for financial aid due to my parents' income. I, as an individual, am paying for college, not my parents.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Parking is a pain. It's expensive and often hard to find a spot. I've heard decent things from the student who use the shuttle system though.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I've never explicitly witnessed drug or alcohol abuse on campus, although I've heard of people smelling pot through air vents in campus housing and I'm sure it happens in other places on campus while I'm just oblivious to it.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: One awesome thing about the East Orlando area, where UCF resides, is its variety of food, coffee, and snack places. There's literally something for everyone, and you'll discover some places that you'll absolutely fall in love with.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Orlando is just one of those cities that has so much going on at once! It's great if you love the theme parks, or enjoy finding cool new cafes to sip coffee in. Overall, Orlando always has something new to offer. UCF itself is incredible. It's the second largest school in the nation, which is really awesome when it comes to students having school spirit. It's also one of the only schools that actually allows undergrad students to do research!

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: UCF is pretty great about shuttles going to and from campus if you don't live in a dorm. Sadly, like most Florida cities, Orlando is not very public transportation friendly. There is no subway system at all. For the most part, students without cars are able to get from home to campus and surrounding areas pretty easily.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: They are kind of expensive, but if you want safer and nicer area you'll be paying more unless you live in a house.

4 College Junior

Administration: They are pretty strict when it comes to academic dishonesty. Its always better to do your own work.

4 College Junior

Technology: The bus system sometimes is not that considerate of students who are rushing to class. They should do more activities for school spirit.

3 College Freshman

Parking: Parking permits are expensive.
A bicycle would be very helpful in getting around campus efficiently.
It is difficult to find parking but when parking is found, it is suggested to leave your vehicle there and try to walk around campus as much as possible.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: I have found no assistance in scholarships as of yet and have no scholarship assistance even though I am under the age of 21, filed dependent and make less than 15 thousand dollars a year.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: The library is huge and greatly helpful. The student union is very centralized on the campus. The help desk is extremely helpful, more so than any other help desk I have ever met.

4 College Senior

Athletics: All the athletic students try their best every time they perform. There is a very good recreational and wellness center that serves many students with a variety of group fitness, machines, and activities.

4 College Senior

Academics: The rate of graduation is improving since there are many efforts that faculty and administrators make to keep improving. There are a variety of workshops and at-risk programs to help students.

4 College Senior

Academics: My college cares about their students and are making efforts in improving student success.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Varsity sports are well attended, however, basketball is the biggest draw while football is mostly enjoyed for the tailgates and parties instead of the game. Basketball and soccer seem to do the best, but the facilities are pretty nice for everything.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: There are so many walks of life represented on campus. There is a niche for everyone. Most people are grouped into cliques if not in Greek life, but that can be a positive thing because there is literally a club, sport or outlet for every style, intelligence, and hobby.

4 College Senior

Campus Food: There are a variety of options on campus including two "cafeterias" included in the meal plan. Some of the better options include Chick-fil-A, sushi, Subway, Smoothie King and many other options that encompass a wide variety of cultural and healthy food options.

3 College Junior

Local Area: Tough to get the classes you need toward degree. Teachers are excellent but don't all seem to care about teaching. Atmophere is friendly and welcoming. Staf is helpfull.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: As soon as you step foot onto our college you can see the diverse community. Orlando is such a great place to be at because it attracts many cultures such as asians, latin americans, islanders, europeans and our good ol' boys from america. The women here are sooo beautiful and intelligent with down to earth personalities. WE LOVE UCF!

3 College Senior

Campus Food: We have good food selections in and around campus and with the prices of food increases the harder it is to eat healthy.

4 College Senior

Drug Safety: I believe that UCF has a great drug free and alcohol policy enforced. I haven't seen people smoking pot or popping pills when I walk through dorms or apartments. I think that the student government has done an excellent job educating new student as well as returning students on effects of alcohol. Great Job UCF!!

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!
