4 College Junior

Majors: I would say the University of Central Florida has a large selection of majors, from Anthropology to Restaurant and Food Service Management. Each major has great teachers who only teach classes for that specific field, and most of the classes I've taken have been interesting and beneficial to the program, whether it was classes in History, Psychology, or Communication Sciences and Disorders, my current major.

Party Scene: Pick "A" party day. Notice how I said day and not days. This can be the hardest temptation to avoid when living your college years. It is perfectly fine to socialize and party it up. These are the best years of your life for sure; however, dont tip the scale of having fun and being wreckless. Pick one day that is your "party hard" day and then maybe two other days that are your sociable days were they are more laid back and fun. There are plenty of places in downtown orldando to have some fun (clubs and whatnot) main campus is a happening spot for tailgate parties and every day events. Try them all at least once!

Off-Campus Housing: Be a student and research living choices – A dorm life can be sweet in terms of only having to pay one easy payment for all inclusive utilities and what have you; however, you can get stuck in a fall and spring contract where you must stay for the spring term as well. This is a double charge whammy! Dont underestimate off campus housing. Just make sure you do alot of review readings and research to find a affordable and well maintained place to call "temporary home". You dont realize exactly how much you do live in your room trying to get all your work done and realize that the place you chose is very loud or that you picked a place right in the middle of party city.

Drug Safety: Mainly Marijuana – I haven't lived on campus at the University of Central Florida for a year, but I've been told from students who work in the dorms that at least once a week, the university police are called on campus to search a floor or dorm for marijuana. Sometimes they find weed, and sometimes they are unsuccessful. There is little mention of any other type of drug that is being used on campus. Most students seem to care more about drinking than doing drugs.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Great Area – Many great food places located on University Blvd. near UCF. Everything is so close to the campus and some even offer student discounts. They Jimmy Johns, Chipotle, Moe's, Chik-Fil-a, and many other food joints.

5 College Senior

Majors: Great Opprotunities – I have not had an internship yet, but my major requires one during your last semester, which I think is great! It gives you an opprotunity to earn credits towards your degree and gain some real world experience. I also have no concerns of being able to find one because the faculty help us in finding one.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Very Safe – I feel very safe on UCFs campus. I always see polics cars driving around through out the day. They also have an email service that updates you if something has happened and what precautions you should take. That makes me feel well informed and very safe.

Weather: Florida Heat! Florida's heat is ridiculous! I have lived here for 9 years, and it seems to get worse every summer. I get drenched in sweat walking to class, and every day during the summer it rains, and at least once a week I get rained on. But the weather in later fall and winter is gorgeous, and I don't have to walk to class in the snow!

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Many Choices – There are so many places to eat around campus! Many of them support UCF and will give a discount or a free drink if you show your student ID card. It is awesome!

Parking: Like any other university, UCF can be a little crowded when it comes to those high peak times for classes on campus. There are plenty of spots, just lots of walking and every one of course wants to try and get princess parking all the time. New garages are coming soon, which is always a big help!

3 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: Always a Mission – Like any other campus, college or university, the paperwork for financial aid is usually a stack and a very busy office on campus. None the less, they try to be as efficient and helpful as possible. Just be ready to wait a while on those crunch times or busy scheduling days.

5 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: Emergency Programs – The Email, phone, text and Student page emergency programs are solid and effective. They are always quick to communicate any problems or important news on and around campus.

5 College Junior

Athletics: I'm in love with the gym . you could basically practice for any sport in there. They keep it clean, safe & fun . Joining a team should be hard because there all different sports you could try out for. Even if you don't make the team there are smaller teams in that same division that you could probably join.

1 College Junior

Administration: They are very strict about their policies , that's what makes the school safer for students. The school strive for students to be excel .

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Quality: Student Union – A great example and the core of student life on campus is the UCF Student Union. It is constantly being reinvented and provides many great resources and study areas for students on campus.

3 College Junior

Academics: Some you will find much more helpful than others. Even if the teacher suck at helping you could always find additional help outside of class.

Campus Quality: Under Construction Forever – That's one of the alternative acronyms to UCF. And it means exactly that - always under construction. It's one of those things you hear coming in as a freshman, but you never truly pay mind to it. Until Senior year comes around and you realize - it truly never stops. But as much of a hassle that it may seem, and the inconvenience in traffic and dust it may produce; it is symbolic for evolution. An evolution as a school, educational programs, community and family. UCF is a campus that strives to better itself, their surroundings and everyone involved. It promotes health, protection of our environment and educational growth. And if you need to get away from it all, or simply find an inspiring spot on campus, the Reflection Pond is always the best spot.

3 College Junior

Academics: There is always some type of help offered by the school so each student couldget some type of help when they are available .

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Its way to expensive for what we have to pay for. Other than that it was a great experience.

4 College Junior

Academics: Rate My Professor – The academic at ucf are beginning to take form, Each department has plenty of skilled professors at their disposal, and with rate my professors it's not difficult to make sure that you are getting what you paid for.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: Go on Out – The nightlife in orlando is incredible. While the majority of downtown orlando is 21+ the surrounding cities of longwood, winterpark, and oveido offer more adventurous entertainment for those who would prefer to drive themselves home. There something for everyone.

3 College Junior

Administration: Fair and Balanced – UCF doesn't throw the book at everyone for small offenses. Dealing with the policies at ucf are like dealing with the rules in any other organization. Stay clear of the more serious offenses, and make sure to avoid questionable behavior, and no one will bother you.

2 College Senior

Parking: It Could Be Better – I believe that since we are getting more students each year, the school should accommodate our need for parking space. It is sometimes difficult to find a parking space and it could result in you being late for class or getting into a crash resulting from competing for a parking space.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Live Away from Campus – The further you live from campus, the more you will enjoy your time at ucf.

4 College Senior

Diversity: Different Races and Ethnicities – I can say there are a lot of different races and ethnicities on campus. I meet students that are exchanged students from countries like Spain, France, India, Germany etc...and people from different backgrounds come together to form the community that is UCF students

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!
