Campus Quality: The Best You'll Get Out of a University! UCF has so much to offer when it comes to facilities that are available for students. With a newly renovated gym that's over 20,00 sq ft you'll never run out of things to do! There is a lap pool, as well as a recreational pool available to students year round! Rock climbing wall, outdoor recreational adventures, a lake where you can rent canoes and kayaks with your student id at anytime. A variety of classes offered at the gym with a wide range of day and night time options. There are monthly events that are held on campus, and in front of our student union daily there are events being hosted by numerous different organizations! I look forward to our winter festival every year with our very own ice skating ring that they build along with a few rides and out door movie screen showing the newest shows that have come out of dvd! There's always something to do for students and even locals in the area. From Basketball games, to swimming, or taking a stroll on our nature trails. You'll never get bored!

Drug Safety: Not Too Bad – You'll find way more people drinking than doing drugs. The drug scene really isn't that big, there is one of course, but you'll find way more of a bigger drinking scene than drug scene.

Off-Campus Housing: Just Average – Every off-campus housing is the same, lousy/sketchy/over-priced in my honest opinion. When I see where my friends live at other colleges and how cheap their rent is compared to mine it's outrageous. Not to mention when they pair up random people they don't match them very well. For what we, the students, are receiving we should be paying way less.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: UCF has been a safe place for me these past four years. There are measures taken on campus which are available for students in the event of an emergency. There have been a few incidents, but 90% weren't a direct affect of or toward students. Students have a certain responsibility to stay aware and take note of their surroundings. But, the campus is patrolled by officers at all hours of the day and night. On campus housing is extremely safe! Over all, I've never had to be worried. Granted as a woman, I don't go out for jogs in the middle of the night alone. Just be smart about your own safety.

2 College Freshman

Parking: the parking permits are super expensive and should be part of the tuition that is already high enough. the fact that the campus PD constantly checks for permits and try to parking tickets makes me feel like i'm in a police state, and i have to worry about any family members that may want to visit me even just for an hour. Never the less the system is terrible, and they should be more lenient to guest parking, not making the only free day parking in parking lot F witch is geographically away from anything that actually matters to parents (Ie. the student union)

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Its Getting Better Every Day – I was not originally planning of attending UCF, but becausse of all of the resources that are available and the first year experience makes the overal experience great.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: It Could Always Be Better – There are those who always get away with it, but the strict campus rules against it discourage most people from even attempting, it witch is good. It all depends on the crowd that you hang out with though,

3 College Senior

Weather: Mostly Bearable – Florida weather is so unpredictable, and that's probably the worst part about it. But it could be worse. It's hot and humid for half of the year, and the other half of the year has nice weather. It also rains quite a bit which is annoying.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Many Options – The pros are that there are many options very close to campus, as well as UCF shuttle service to campus from many of them. The con is that a lot of them are overpriced.

2 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Spice It up, Orlando! Maybe I just haven't explored the off-campus areas enough, but there is nothing unique or different. Just your typical fast food chains or restaurants. Spice it up, Orlando!

3 College Senior

Technology: Not Enough Computer Labs – Though there are many computers on campus, I feel that there needs to be more locations for them. I'll be on one side of campus and have to walk a far distance to the other side to get to a lab.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Quality: The outdoor pool is fantastic. Parking is better than others. Having an open campus allows students to enjoy the good Florida weather.

2 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: There is a great disconnect with this subject. Every week we called to find out what the financial assistance would be but they said not to worry. When it was finally calculated, it was too late to apply for scholarships. Each hand needs to understand what the other is doing or not doing!

5 Recent Alumnus

Weather: If you love sports and being outdoors, then this college is the one for you. I can swim year round and not be hindered by snow or cold weather. It also makes it nice when you have to walk from one place to another.

4 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: Students Are Adults – Students are adults, but not always treated as such. Continually required to do things for themselves, there are still many adults in the college world who demean students and are not willing to help them. Given responsibility and treated with respect, students can prosper and become contributing members of the adult world. They need role models and people who are willing to teach them how to succeed in the world today.

5 College Junior

Majors: Getting in – There was nothing special about getting into my Biomedical Sciences program. I didn't have an application process or anything. UCF makes it really easy to change your major online or with an advisor.

4 College Junior

Majors: Biomedical Sciences – I am very happy with my program and it is a lot of hard work which will effectively prepare me for graduate school! I have no concerns of finding a job in my field because I will be going to dental school after my bachelor's, but I am not worried about not getting in because UCF is preparing me with their rigorous course load.

4 College Junior

Majors: Biomedical Sciences – I love my program at UCF because I meet a lot of people who are also pre-med students. There are a lot of opportunities to take advantage of and the faculty is very helpful. The curriculum is great because although it can be very demanding of my time, it will definitely prepare me for dental school!

Academics: I am currently pursuing a criminal justice major and there are lots of scholarships and grants that can help pay for college. Also performing extra curricular activities and events will help me be a part of the community. The workload is managable with the number of classes that I am taking and there is always help available on and off campus.

4 College Senior

Technology: The school computers are easy to use and are usually fast. Sometimes it takes a while to load web pages but other than that they are pretty reliable. The computer labs have up to date software which helps most student complete tasks with ease but paying to print would be the downfall.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Guys and Girls – The school has a very diverse culture and everyone is friendly and unique. By meeting different people we learn about new things everyday that we didn't know yesterday.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Challenges of Major – Getting into my Biomedical Science major was very easy because I had a good GPA and I had transfered from a community college. The problem is staying in the major. I believe if a student fails 2 or more classes within this major they must switch their major to something else. Having a good GPA is a must with this degree because it shows how prepared a student is for grad school.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Guys and Girls – At my university everyone has their own style because of the wide and different ethnicity. I don't believe the students here actually care or depend on looks. They are very busy and professional making sure that their education comes first. For the most part they dress casual like any other student would for school.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Guys and girls at UCF are very diverse. You can find all sort of different types of guys from jocks to hard core studiers. Both sexes are very friendly for the most part.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: As an undergraduate student at University of Central Florida in the Biomedical Science program, diversity has enriched my educational experience as a student. The opportunity to work with other students from different cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds have helped me broaden my perspective and develop a sense of humility. Because of the wide ethnic diversity, we each bring something unique to the course work and have a unqiue synergy that would not likely occur if was not for our differences. Everyone is well represented and accepted by everyone, regardless of what ethnic group they are from.

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!
