3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel very safe at UCF, mostly because I have never personally been threatened. However, I take a lot of extra precautions to keep myself safe.

2 College Freshman

Parking: There is roughly one parking spot for every 8 people at UCF, which is not a good statistic. It's very hard to find a satisfying parking spot.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: Despite the fact that UCF is located on the outskirts of the city of Orlando, that does place it in a great spot for many activities. The theme parks and downtown are a great place to visit and interact with fellow students as well as tourists. UCF is also close to Valencia Community College and Full Sail; allowing students the opportunity to meet people that do not go to their school.

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: Spirit Splash, and our campus has the style of a traditional old campus, but also new and modern features of brand new ones

3 College Freshman

Parking: Parking is decent. It only gets difficult on school nights just because most people don't go anywhere. But you'll usually be able to find a spot in one of the parking garages if you can't find one in a parking lot. You also have to be careful about parking in the garages when there is a football game but the university gives you notice about it.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: The shuttle buses are very nice. They stop at all the affiliated housing and drop you off near to student union and by the arena as well. They run about every 20 minutes.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drugs are not very visible at the University of Central Florida. It depends on who you hang out with and hom much you let them influence your actions. Smoking is not very common anymore since the campus has gone smoke free. If anything, drinking alcohol is the most popular. However you do not have to drink or do drugs to enjoy college and have a good time.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel pretty safe on UCF's campus. The school makes sure to keep the students safe and take the safety of the students very seriously.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: It's a very big school, and there are a ton of majors. I'm going into Forensic Science which offered there along with just about anything else.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: It is a very big school, the second biggest in the US I believe, but there is a on campus police force that's there 24/7 watching out for your safety.

5 College Sophomore

Weather: If you like being able to wear short sleeved shirts almost 365 days a year, then Florida is the place to be. Weather is usually really nice here, but Florida being so close the ocean you have to worry about Hurricane season.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The prices are a little high, especially for a no-income college student like myself. But they are really nice places and some of them are fully furnished as well.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The guys are all hot but rude. All they want is sex and to party.

Diversity: There are a lot of different cultures and skin colors at UCF. I love it.

4 College Senior

Transportation: Buses shuttling students from apartment complexes to campus Mon- Fri and Saturdays for Football games, Parking is reasonably priced but tricky to find a spot on some parts of campus depending on the time and day. There is a system that brings students anywhere on campus on the weekends and late at night if they dont want to walk.

5 College Senior

Campus Quality: the gym is gorgeous and they are adding an additional one to the other side of campus, Sporting venues are amazing always really clean even after a game. multiple study areas and computer labs for printing throughout campus

3 College Senior

Campus Food: same food at the meal plan places but it is convenient and fast. no cleaning up after yourself or spending time cooking or watching water bowl

3 College Senior

Party Scene: there are a few fun night clubs near UCF but they also just took down the legendary ones. Downtown is a lot of fun too and its only a 20 minute drive

1 College Senior

Parking: Parking is difficult to find at UCF. Cars are ticketed if you do not park with a decal. You must leave at least a half hour early before your class starts if you want to make it on time.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorm that I'm in is pretty old but very roomy. It quickly became the place to hang out amongst my friends because of that. The shower is pretty crappy to be honest and the air conditioning has broken on us twice in on semester. Other that that, the place is central to everything important like my classes, dumpster, laundry room, and cafeteria. I like it a lot. Other buildings are the opposite, like Hercules dorms feel very cramped but are fairly new and have great bathrooms. Really depends on where you stay though. As for my RA, he's very cool. He doesn't usually bother us unless it's vital and hasn't really busted anybody's balls over anything on my floor and I swear the kids on my floor are basically creatures of the night because i constantly hear them up at around four and nobody usually cares.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: There are a lot of places to go and eat in and around campus. If you enjoy night clubs, there are about three or four that are really close by. As for the atmosphere, there is defiantly a feeling of being in a very busy, always moving place... if that makes sense.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: In every one of my courses I usually have a majority white male peers. Granted, I am a computer science major so that would mainly account for that. I have seen a wide variety of students around campus though and they all seem as though they are from all walks of life.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The school for me has been very lenient as to what I can and can't do. I've some things that the school deems wrong and they were usually very understanding, for instance, I parked in a faculty lot because the lot for the students was completely filled one night and I received a parking ticket. I disputed the ticket with a firm explanation of the circumstantial that were behind my inappropriate parking and it was forgiven.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I haven't really noticed much drug usage on campus. I suppose if I honestly looked, I would find those who do drugs and their suppliers, but UCF is a large campus; if you don't want to be near that scene, it can easily be avoided.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There's a great variety in the off-campus dining options near UCF: Vietnamese, Mexican, Hispanic, smoothies, Chinese, Jamaican, pizza, fastfood joints, health shops, American, and so on. The food is good but sometimes things can get a bit pricey. There are usually decently priced items at the more expensive locations however.

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!
