5 College Junior

Diversity: The campus is fairly diverse the student body is full of many different cultures. I don't think there are any issues including diversity on the UCF campus; one of the reasons is by our diverse clubs for the student body.

5 College Junior

Local Area: Orlando is a very busy, fast paced, entertaining atmosphere. There are clubs located in downtown Orlando, and the popular theme parks of Disney and Universal Studios collide.

5 Recent Alumnus

Campus Quality: Respect to All Diciplines – The University of Central Florida offers a plethora of different graduate and undergraduate programs to their students. There is a great diversity found on the campus due to the university's respect to different academic diciplines.

4 Recent Alumnus

Administration: Academic Integrity – The University of Central Florida has great pride in their high standard of education. Plagarism and cheating are looked down upon greatly and can effect a student's enrollment status.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: the weather is very tricky. when is hot i like it better and tend to concentrate more. but, when is cold, i get very lazy.

3 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: Safe Campus – I feel safe walking this campus day or night. The campus has emergency phones throughout the grounds. During the evening and daylight hours there are always campus police visible.

5 College Freshman

Administration: The University Creed – My University is very serious and passionate about not only academic honesty but every aspect that makes a perfect college student. We have a University Creed, that is memorized by all students because it is the sole basis of every orientation. It is also discussed in almost every class on the first day. But it is also posted in every room on campus. Not just small classrooms, but in large lecture halls and even dining halls and ballrooms. It sets the path for every student to follow. It is, Integrity, Scholarship, Creativity, Community, and Excellence. I am proud to be a student at the University of Central Florida.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Finding an Apartment – Orlando is filled with apartments. Especially close to campus. There is no problem finding an apartment or finding one with special amenities. The university also provides off-campus housing that is associated to the school that they advertise for any chance they get. Also, compared to the on-campus dorm prices the apartments are much cheaper. Another great amenity that all apartments provide is transportation/shuttles that take you to and from campus.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Extra Course Assistance – The University of Central Florida (UCF) does a very good job at providing extra help for students when they need it. More specifically, they offer a Math Lab, with actually math professors and graduate students, to help with a student's math homework or comprehension of a math course. UCF also has a program that can help students with various other courses, providing personal tutors or organize a small group with a tutor.

4 College Freshman

Majors: Math Education Program – I haven't encountered any problems yet, but I am only a second semester freshman. The degree requires a lot of credits, especially in the math area which is obviously expected. I haven't met with my new counselor that was assigned to me but I'm sure when I do it will go smoothly as it did when I met with a general counselor.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Great School Spirit – Although our sports teams are not the best, the students seem to support all areas. Many people attend both football and basketball games from what I have noticed. I am sure that soccer and volleyball games are also regulary attended.

Health & Safety: Almost Always Safe – There are occasionally problems, but I personally have never felt unsafe. I know that there are campus police that I can get in touch with if necessary and I feel secure in my dorm.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The University of Central Florida has a great selection of off-campus housing options. My roomates and I are residence at Arden Villas just a half-mile from the main campus. Our 2 bedroom 2 bath apartment is very spacious and includes a kitchen and laundry room along with a full size living room. The rent is reasonable and affordable and cost less then most on campus housing options. I highly recomend off campus housing at UCF.

4 College Freshman

Weather: Living the Florida Life! Living in Florida, it is usually warm and hot here everyday. It does rain every now and then, but it will only be for a couple minutes.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Strict Rules – On campus, they are very strict on drinking and smoking. Many people who get caught in dorms get warnings or get on probation. So, if you get drunk, dont go wandering about campus. Keep it on the down low! They are also very strict on plagarism in classes and about taking tests. However, those are usually the professors who are guaranteed to have good pass rates!

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: On campus, there are many fast-food restaurants such as Chick-fil-A, Subway, and more. There are also 2 cafeterias where you can go if you purchase a meal plan. The food is average in the cafeterias, and sometimes they have really good food. They have multiple stations such as a pasta station, pizza station, salad bar, and a mongolian grill. There are also many restaurants in the many plazas right outside of UCF too.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It's Not Home, but It's Something – Food is our dire necessity, the body longs for its nourishment and it's hard to ignore your stomach growling when you're hungry. Being a Miami Native, I was open to nothing but variety, famous mom and pop restaurants and diners, fast food and not so fast food. I could have Haitian cuisine, Cuban dessert, and Chinese take-out at whim; if there was any place in the world I felt like eating I could find it in the corner of my neighborhood within seconds; the true melting pot! I came to UCF, with the same expectations and the same appetite, only to be left disappointed. Cuban coffee is miles away, and Family Restaurants are belittled by the power and anarchy of food franchises. The only comfort I get in my food is, knowing that I purchased every item from a dollar menu and probably saved enough change to go to a different Burger King or McDonalds tomorrow. Off-Campus only provides a diverse chain of fast food plazas. It's okay only because I know it's not home and college isn't cheap, but I miss stuffing my face with delicious, home-style meals from neighborhood restaurants and getting my money's worth.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Theres Someone for Everybody – As one of the largest student bodys in the country, there is a girl here for everyone. EVERYONE. There has to be at least 25,000 of them

3 College Freshman

Diversity: UCF seems to contain a sample of religions and races that is proportional to an average metropolitan city.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Not only do you have great on campus dining, but the off campus options are reasonably priced, accessible, and there is plenty of them.

4 College Student

Drug Safety: Not Seen – Drinking is a very popular night time activity here at UCF. The dorms are strictly monitered, but there are numerous clubs right accross the street. Other than drinking, I have not heard of drug use, peer pressure, or even police enforcement.

4 College Student

Greek Life: UCf is so diverse, there is a fraternity or sorority for just about anybody. Greek life is seen throughout the campus, but it is not really important. Greek members are definately outnumbered by the "non-greeks". There are 3 fraternity houses and many more sorority houses on campus as well. They are well kept up and compliment the university.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: Orlando, Florida – There are a whole bunch of electives for my major. Not related electives, just free electives. This doesn't bother me, as I have the opportunity to take random classes that I find interesting, but it does tend to knock me off focus. I enjoy most of the classes I have to take for my major and am looking forward to more rewarding and fun classes in the future.

5 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: UCF is in a great area for off-campus dining. There is every type of food you could think of, very close by.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Orlando, Florida – Mostly fast food places such as Taco Bell and Mcdonalds, but there are also some nice sit in restaurants such as Smokey Bones and Olive Garden. Then there are some unique restaurants such as Chee Burger Chee Burger. Cost is only high when you go fancy. Everything is within a 15 minute drive and usually long lines are nonexistant.

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!
