Campus Quality: student is the best part of main campus and the gym

5 College Sophomore

Majors: My program in Exercise Science has many tracks and is flexible to the individual. They work WITH you, not AT you. Essentially, my track is human performance and I've managed to change this many times yet still be on track with my graduation goals. The University itself warrants its students to change majors frequently within the first couple years of schooling, and are extremely flexible about it to stimulate the growth of the student and his/her potential in whatever field they wish to go in after graduation.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Lets be honest: This is Florida. The most unpredictable weather in probably the nation. One day it could be hell on earth and you're sweating out what you ate for breakfast, the next it could be 50 degrees and raining. The unpredictable nature of Florida is a tad annoying, but what can you do? its Florida.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Knightros and Marketplace are the most convenient places to eat on campus, especially with a flexible meal plan. The food is so varied that it fits every individuals personal health needs, even needs to experience enjoyment in what you're eating. I definitely recommend buying an unlimited meal plan for dining halls, it saves money from being spent daily on meals and the plan pays for itself from how much you're actually going to be at knightros or Marketplace. If dining hall is not your style, UCF has so many other restaurants on campus located in the Student Union or by The Plaza ranging from Chic Fil A, Smoothie King, Qdoba, Burger King, Asian Chao, Kyoto (My favorite), Domino's (24/7) and Subway

5 College Senior

Academics: I love all of the classes at UCF. The prerequisite courses as well as the core courses are great! I couldn't have been happier with my classes.

5 College Senior

Technology: The computers at UCF are awesome. They are up to date and have great network reliability and speed. They wireless access is secure and easy to connect. They have guests connections for people who are not students as well.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Orlando area is a great place to find off-campus living for the Univerisity of Central Florida (UCF). With UCF being a school with so many students, it would be impossible to house all of its students on campus. Apartments around campus make it convenient for students to live off campus. There are student living apartment communitites 100 feet from campus. Students can walk! Also, almost all of these apartment complexes have shuttles that take the students to and from campus on buses that run on 15 minute increments or less. The costs aren't bad either because the apartments include everything.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: When I did live on campus at the University of Central Florida for my freshman year I never felt unsafe. I would walk around campus with my friends all hours of the day/night. The only thing that made me nervous was that anyone can be on campus on any time. There are many ways to stay safe on campus though with all of the emergency areas and security.

4 College Senior

Scholarships: EMAIL! Every time I have emailed them, they respond back in 24 hours. Even my Mom agrees. Calling is hard to get through because they are so busy. Also, if you go into their office they are organized and get you in and out. The financial aid process is actually very easy if you follow the steps on their finaid.ucf.edu.

5 College Senior

Athletics: UCF has great sports. The athletes here are all about giving back to the community as well. UCF has amazing school spirit and every single event is loaded with black and gold. The facilities are really nice. I suggest as a student who wants to come, to check out every single athletic event before coming. You will see for yourself!

4 College Senior

Academics: I am a Legal Studies Major at UCF. The professors are very welcoming and work with you. Of course, if you are trying to be a lawyer, there are no excuses for late assignments and coming to class late. Although, if there is an emergency, they are flexible. The workload isn't overwhelming if you stay organized. There are internship opportunities your senior year to do that will take place of three courses if certain GPA.

2 College Senior

Parking: Parking no matter what campus isn't GREAT! You have to realize that like in most situations getting there usually is beneficial which usually leads to a decent parking spot. Decals are required, and if they are not used, there is a $30 parking ticket. If you live on campus, I suggest walking. If you live off campus, utilize the shuttles. If not, driving a car is fine, but like I said, just be there about 30 minutes before class to ensure parking and walking time.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: If you live on campus theres a dining hall called Marketplace and there you will find normal cafeteria food and its really good food. In the student union is where you'll find all your fast food resteraunts such as Burger King, Subway, Asian Chao and many more. There is a couple of healthy spots too such as the salad bar and a couple of other places.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: If you don't have any holds on your account the financial aid process will go smoothly. So don't have holds and you won't have any problems

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Student life is awesome! There's something here for everyone! UCF puts on alot of events and they give away alot of FREE things!

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is pretty average and you don't have to join one to be "cool." The different greeks at the school are all kinds of diverse. Of course they party alot but greeks do have a higher than normal gpa than students who aren't greek

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The academics here is challenging sometimes but its really good. There are alot of good professors and the registration process isn't too complicated just as long as you don't have a hold on your account. The workload for the most part consist of 4 exams and maybe a few extra work so nothing serious

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Guys and girls get along and students are friendly

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: my roommate and i found a place in orlando a weeek befor school started, it not the best in the world. it kinda small but it only a mile away from the school and the price was very low.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are tons of places to live Off-Campus in Orlando. Prices generally range from $450 - $750 depending on where you want to live. The average is probably $550 (per person) for a 4/4 apartment. Almost all apartments in the area offer per person leases with electric/utility caps. Those leases include cable, internet, and tons of amenities.

4 College Junior

Majors: I am currently double majoring in Business Management (Entrepreneurship track) and Finance. I am very happy with the business classes I have taken so far. There are a lot of resources for students who want to pursue their passion outside of the classroom. My favorite is the Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation. Any student (of any major) can head into the center with a business idea and get consulting/guidance on how to turn their idea into a real business. They even offer various workshops with guest speakers. The best part is, CEI is completely free. I intend to start my own business within the next few years and CEI has been extremely helpful with putting me on the right track.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Generally everyone here is nice. Some can get cliquey with their groups but it's never hard to make friends. With two gyms on campus and countless intramural sports/outdoor activities on campus; there are tons of ways to meet new people and the majority of students seem to be pretty fit. As with any school, there are both introverted and extroverted people, but the majority of students here seem to be friendly and outgoing.

5 College Junior

Diversity: With so many people on this campus (we are the 2nd largest school in the nation) you are bound to meet someone of any background.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics at the University of Central Florida are outstanding. For the varsity sports there is always a good turn out in the crowd with a mix between fans and students. Also, the varsity sports have been improving greatly over the years. The athletic facilities are amazing at UCF. The gym is enormous and has plenty of courts/areas for all types of recreational athletic play. In addition, a new gym has just recently been constructed and opened to the student body.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: At the University of Central Floria, the academics never fall short of an A quality grade. There is a huge variety of curriculum programs available and the registration process couldn't be any simpler; it is all done online and if your class is full you are put into a waiting line that automatically enrolls you in the course if an opening is available. In regards to the professors, they are unbelievable. Nearly all of them try to make the lectures inviting and enjoyable so you don't have a terrible time even on the worst of days.

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!
