I love UCF. I have felt at home ever since I toured the campus a year ago. I really enjoy the diversity of this university and the fact that there are so many people. There are always activities all over campus. My experience at this school has been amazing. Living on campus has made this experience even better. The dorms are a close walking distance to classes and the student union, which makes getting to around very convenient. At UCF, you will definitely be walking a lot but having a skateboard or longboard seems to be a very popular mode of transportation.

UCF has a huge population size, which means you always have a place there! There are many resources, like the library, gym, and free writing help for students. So many places to eat like chick-fil-a and the football games are outright amazing. You feel like you're part of a gigantic family. The professors are so nice and helpful. It's a great place to go to college if you want to be more independent or want to social and interactive! It's perfect for everyone!

i like how open they are when it comes to new students, how they give those who are with a 2.0 gpa a chance to experience how it is like at their university. you have a lot of freedom to do what you want, they have great programs and sports like their volleyball team.
