Off-Campus Dining: Nice Variety of Restaurants Around – Many meal options on-campus but off-campus options are great too. Many restaurants and fast food chains to choose from. Varies from olive garden to mcdonalds. Serves any tastes and any budget.

Transportation: Amazing Shuttle Service – Great service from the rosen campus to the main campus. Great time availability so you can get to all of your classes on time. Unique escort transportation service so no study walks around late at night all alone.

Drug Safety: Drug Awareness – The drug scene at University of Central Florida is almost non existant. I never see anyone doing any illegal activites on campus nor do I ever hear about "drugs" in any way. There is so much emphasis on integrity on campus, that students are more likely to not participate in drug activities.

Athletics: Sports Drive School Spirit – Athletics in school create unity between students and the university. Cheering on your "home" team or being part of something bigger, I belive is a positive goal. It also allows opportunities to pool together people from vary different backgrounds that would not normally interact.

Health & Safety: Excellent Facility – Full time students can come in for a variety of ailments and be treated. Appointments are easy to make. A pharmacy is located on the 1st floor. Test results are quick and timely. Adding insurance information is easy. Staff is very helpful.

Academics: As a Transfer Student and Upper Classman – I would have to say my judgement is skewed. However, all the professors I've had at this university are extremely adept at their subject. Classes are not boring. Professors are not boring, classes are smaller than expected. Tests are graded fairly. A lot if required from students but nothing impossible.

Academics: Great Environment – University of Central Florida has a great environment for students to flourish. The campus is huge, the architecture is beautiful and inviting, there are plenty of activities held for students and plenty of clubs to participate in. There are so many businesses and restaurants immediately close to campus. It feels like you never have to venture out more than a mile. The facilities and clean. There's a gym on campus and plenty of outdoor activities. There's college police and a health center. There's a free print lab in the student union and 24 hour study facilities. The library is 5 floors with plenty of study space.

Overall Experience: It's Pretty Good – UCF has a beautiful campus that is always changing. There are many employment opportunities for students and they have a fair selection of programs.

Academics: Hospitality Management – There is no better place to learn hospitality than the #1 tourist destination in the world. Additionally, the college is located in the most modern and technologically advanced facility ever built for hospitality management education.

Athletics: Student Involvement – The attendance at games is poor for all sports. UCF lacks spirit probably due to the fact that the school isn't ranked that high in popular sports such as basketball and football. But they have the ability to improve, and they're doing so every year.

Academics: Registration and Orientation Process – The registration and the orientation process here at UCF was very organized. I understood from the beginning what do they want from me and what i can expect from them. The orientation was very helpful.

Off-Campus Dining: Fortunately for UCF students who don't have a meal plan there are plenty of options just down the street. Along University Blvd, the main road leading to UCF, there are over 15 different dining locations such as Chick-Fil-A, Buffalo Wild Wings, Applebees, Zaxby's, McDonald's, Burger King, Taco Bell, and a bunch of other places you can think of. I'll admit, some places can be a bit pricey for a college student but it isn't difficult to find coupons and other kinds of discounts. One of my favorite off campus locations to dine at is Lucky Moon Pizza, a quaint little pizza shop with HUGE pizza slices at a reasonable price. The great part about Lucky Moon is that they offer vegan/vegetarian choices as well, so everyone can eat there!

Athletics: If you were to attend any UCF sporting event it would be incredibly easy to tell that our Knight Pride is strong. We root for all of our teams and fortunately for us recently we've had some great victories particularly for our football, basketball and baseball teams. Intramural Sports are also very popular on campus and many students enjoy participating in them and being able to play sports with their fellow knights. Our state-of-the-art Health & Wellness facility (aka the gym) is one of the largest buildings on campus and has recently been expanded and renovated. It is free to all students who are enrolled in classes and it also offers plenty of courses such as yoga, self-defense, weight training, just to name a few.

Overall Experience: Knight Pride – The University of Central Florida is among one of the largest schools in the nation. As a proud Knight, I must say I absolutely love it here. The atmosphere is incredible and our campus is beautiful and modern. UCF's location is also great; we're in the center of sunny Florida, 30 minutes away from our famed theme parks and many other great landmarks such as Cocoa Beach. Anything you could possibly need is only a few minutes away from campus and the school provides plenty of transportation to get there. All UCF affiliated neighborhoods also provide free shuttle services to and from campus which comes in handy for struggling college students who might not be able to afford a car or gas or campus parking decals. Our school spirit is undeniable; every knight is proud to be one. Our faculty and students are very helpful and friendly, and getting around campus is a breeze. If you enjoy outdoor sports like long boarding, biking, and pretty much anything else you can think of, well UCF has it all. The school has had a very long lasting impact on me as a person and I'm very glad I chose to attend UCF. I've recommended it to many of my friends who were still in High School after I graduated and also to those who were in community college and planning on transferring. I would recommend it to anyone whom I feel would be suited for the school and would benefit academically from attending it.

Off-Campus Dining: As far as off-campus dining options, there's pretty much a little bit of everything. There are several plazas in all directions when you leave campus with a variety of places to eat. Also, if you're willing to drive 5-10 minutes away from campus there are many, many more options. For example, just south of UCF there's Waterford Lakes, a huge shopping center, with more places than you can think of to get something to eat!

Guys & Girls: For the most part, the guys and girls at this campus are diverse. There's a little bit of something for everyone. There are athletic people, nerdy peopel, prepy people, skaters, bookworms, and more kinds of people here. I think it's a pretty good mix.

1 College Freshman

Parking: Ticket costs are high and parking is ridiculously limited, but not having a car pretty much ensures that you will not be able to get off campus on your own.

1 College Junior

Administration: Academic Dishonesty – Academic dishonesty is not tolerated at this school. Most of the time the student fails the course and sometimes can be expelled from the university. The infraction is investigated and punishments can range from having to re-submit an assignment with a grade penalty or failing of the course to being expelled from the program and/or college.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: students appear to be very comfortable at UCF. Very sociable and definitely in relationships.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: The process is fairly easy however I barely have enough to cover my classes and have had to drop courses as I dont have the funds to pay the difference. Then the $100 late fee received to already struggling students doesnt make it any easier.

2 College Junior

Greek Life: Greeks Are Only There to Be Flashy – The greek life at UCF sucks. They should rename it Party Promoters because thats what they are good for. There are only a few withing the Frat or Sorority who's actually thinking of community service or something beneficial to serve the greater good.

3 College Junior

Parking: Parking at UCF is sometimes good depending on the semester and the time of the day. Early morning(7:30am/8am) and Late evening(5pm) classes have the best parking, anywhere between those times your likely to be circling the parking lots or garages stalking students for a parking spot.

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!
