4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are numerous towers that include a panic button around campus for emergency's, and shuttle services that will drive you across campus if you feel unsafe. The centers for help are widely advertised and easy to find.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I've enjoyed the courses I've taken so far. They have been easy to manage together and featured interesting and knowledgeable professors. The class size of some of the intro classes is pretty ridiculous, UCF really needs to learn to say no to applicants. There is a good variety of classes at least, so as long as you aren't a business major you should have no problem getting into a class.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I feel like southern schools in general don't offer as valuable degrees, but UCF seems respectable enough. My issue is that I have no been able to connect to any people in my field of interests, no internships, no alumni network, and unimpressive career center.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: There's a large number of Greek organizations and from what I hear they're a lot of fun and they do good work around the community.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: There's a lot of school involvement when it comes to varsity sports, but it's more of a pain than anything. The football games just make the parking situation more complicated, and we didn't even win a game this year!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I feel like I've made a good choice in UCF. They try very hard to ensure that anyone can afford to come to UCF, and make classes very accessible for every type of student. The atmosphere of the campus is also very nice, it's beautiful to walk through and feels like a tiny town in the middle of Orlando. I also have enjoyed all of my classes and instructors and appreciate the wide variety of classes available to me, and the large number of major and minor programs. However, I was disappointed with the career services center and my academic adviser. While she was a pleasure to talk to, my career counselor offered no concrete help in connecting me with people in my field of interests. My academic adviser is so eager to kick me out of her office for her next appointment that I feel like she doesn't help with anything.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: In general, most students on campus are very accepting of other students and their culture/views.

4 College Senior

Academics: You can always find study groups and study with students from classes at UCF. With UCF being such a large campus, you can virtually study anywhere, with the library being a popular spot.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: There are a wide variety of courses and class sizes that range from small, intimate classrooms to large lecture halls.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Career Services on campus does a great job of reviewing resumes, holding mock interviews, and helping students look for potential part-time opportunities and/or internship opportunities. Many employers hold information sessions on campus as well and career fairs are plenty.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: Events will always occur on campus, but the PD does a good job of responding to crime and setting up emergency call centers all around campus.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Living on campus is pretty over-priced compared to off-campus housing. Some buildings and infrastructure are older than others and can be a bit run down and less modern than some off-campus options. Most buildings are very close to classroom buildings however and close to the Student Union too. Social atmosphere is good, as I made many current friends my first year of living on campus.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: UCF is a great campus with a large and diversified group of school and staff. The academic atmosphere is great and there are various resources on campus to help out students in their studies. Varsity sports are fun to attend and Orlando is a city with growing promise and great job opportunities for graduates.

4 College Senior

Athletics: Almost everyone attends the varsity sports games (whether it be football, basketball, soccer, etc.) and aside from students, even the outside community is engaged in the sports life of UCF. Sports are a huge part of student life.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Any security service you would want to have in place, they have. The problem is usually out of UCF's control, so the best thing to do is to stay safe and make sure you and your friends/peers know what to do in dangerous situations and use the services UCF offers if anything happens.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: This is a case by case basis and by no means represents the school as a whole. In my experience, I've had some of the most driven and challenging instructors in the country, most notably for our Computer Science curriculum, but also for Digital Media: Game Design. With industry experience in recent events, I feel like my professors and their courses have been great.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Career services and the Office of Experiential Learning offer a variety of ways to prepare you for the frequent job fairs and opportunities available at UCF. The only catch is that you need to actually have some experience in your field or some kind of portfolio to show employers, or else you probably won't get anything. I'm sure this is the case everywhere, but don't assume things will move forward without putting in a serious effort.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: As a cost-benefit analysis, you could do better off campus, with the best option being a house rented between 4 or 5 people and having a car. If you don't have a car or want to be on campus for convenience purposes, then you can't go wrong with on campus housing. I stayed in Neptune, Nike apartments, and Lake Claire. They are, in order, new, older but best value in my opinion, and oldest but still nice. Have fun long-boarding to class!

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are emergency towers at every corner around UCF, one click and emergency personal will be on the way. Cops and ambulances have certain entrances to campus so I feel safe there. The only problem is with street lighting around sidewalks etc.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: With your chosen major you get many emails about job opportunities and internships. Also the Orlando area has all type of job types and connections to UCF. Job fairs are always on campus inviting anyone can visit them. Many major offices have career planners and it's simple to get in touch with career services.

Greek Life: I have no idea about greek life at UCF. All I know is that if you have a good GPA, then its a good option to join a professional greek house strictly for connections. For a lot of majors, it comes down to who you know, with a little bit of what you know, whereas some majors, like most STEM majors are more about what you know as opposed to who you know. Do both!

Campus Housing: I live on campus in the newest dorms and they are extremely nice and spacious. Getting into on campus housing is very easy if you just follow the deadlines and turn everything on time it is simple. There are plenty of options and I would recommend living on campus.

4 College Junior

Athletics: I don't believe that athletics should play a part in the University system, and to see that academic programs hinge on the success of sports teams' performances is sad. When people fail to research a school's academic programs, they will often go to the school with the most prestige or best sports team. I chose UCF because its the second best school in the nation for Computer Science and second to fourth best for video-game development, which is what I'm in now. I never considered sports when looking for my college, but if you do, then UCF has a good athletic department, and the gyms are nice!

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Majority of student athletes on campus have great relations with their coaches and fellow athletes. Students can get involved through fan days and free sporting event tickets with just their student id's.

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!
