4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Undergraduate Research Opportunities – My college is really into undergraduate research and they are always getting students to participate in it. I will be participating in a project with my current professor this fall and it will be a wonderful academic experience. This opportunity will allow me to apply book knowledge to real life and develop a stronger network with the faculty members there.

Parking: Parking isn't too bad if you have a 7:30am class or a 6:00pm class. Other than those times you better arrive about 30min-1 hour before your class to get a parking space! Also, permits cost $90 per year and they will fine you even if it is your first offense (and even if you didn't violate a rule on purpose).

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of Options! There are a lot of options for college students to eat. There are different international restaurants and different types of food depending on what you are in the mood for that day. All the restaurants are within an one mile radius of the campus so it is very convenient for us. One of my favorites is Anmol Indian Cuisine. I love Indian food and this place is very authentic and the prices isn't too high.

Scholarships: More Money Could Be Given – I only received loans from the school and a state-wide scholarship, Bright Futures, and it was enough to cover everything I needed but I would've liked to stay away from loans, if there had been better scholarships offered to me. The process of starting school with the money given to me was very smooth and there were no problems in that sense.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Policies Enforced – While drugs and drinking underage are illegal, many people get themselves mixed up in that lifestyle. Most of the people on campus are either drinking or doing drugs and drinking at the same time. If you are caught, on or off campus, you will get in trouble with not only the police, but also the school. Many people have been put on probation after getting caught drinking or doing drugs.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There are over 50,000 students in UCF so finding someone like you is bound to happen. There are hundreds of culture specific clubs from Frats and Sororities to religious groups. If you are looking for a certain ethnic club, you can find one for almost any ethnicity. All in all, University of Central Florida is very diverse.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: Smooth Process – Prospective students can judge a schools academic processes based upon their admission criteria. My program had reasonable admission criteria and a process that was well structured and organized. I had absolutely no hassel to get admission in my program because i provided all the items in the criteria list. Being an international student, i had traveling inconveniences which resulted in me not being able to make it on time for classes. My college dean was reasonable enough to empathize with my situation and granted me a grace period of a week. Furthermore, after applying for a semester i had to defer my semester to the following one and so had to re-apply. The process was smooth because the college made it easy to communicate.
It is a very organized and structured program admission procedure. Students should have no problem applying

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: UCF offers numerous amounts of scholarships and grants to students. However, international students have the disadvantage even if there grades are high to apply for most of these scholarships or grants. Most of the types of aids have citizenship requirements or a requirement that the applicant has to be at least a permanent resident of the states. Most of the scholarships and grants are from an external source so merit-based scholarships (regardless of student type) don't exist. However, alot of students (unless international) have the numerous choices of different financial aid programs that they can apply for. The financial aid office have their own website with tons of detailed information regarding steps and procedures for qualifying for different types of aid. There website is so detailed, that students who are NOT applying to UCF, can even use it as a source of information.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: As an new student at UCF, i should say i am very pleased with security measures the university provides for its students. Campus security/police are definitely visible. During freshmen orientation, students are provided with emergency contact numbers. Also UCF provides students with the option to call security during late hours in case they are on-campus, so that security can escort a student to their car (if they don't feel safe to walk alone). At the Rosen college (which is part of UCF), students cannot access their dorms without their student ID. Furthermore, UCF also sends alerts notifying all students of criminal activities taking place and/or missing persons reports. They also send courteous reminders on how to be safe on a continuous basis. Surveillance cameras are also present at a lot of places and offices. In my opinion, UCF is definitely doing their best to providing safety and security on campus.

Campus Housing: Nike/Hercules is really nice, while the others seem to be a bit older.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: Variety for All – The Orlando area is packed with dining opportunities, accommodating every possible culture or taste.

4 College Student

Technology: Nicely Organized – The computers in the library are up-to-date and actually work!

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: It Is Safe – There is security around campus all the time and they send out updates if there is anything going on even in town around campus. I always feel safe around UCF.

4 College Junior

Local Area: There is so much to do in Central Florida. There are crowded, touristy areas and quiet, relaxed areas as well. You could head over to the theme parks and get to Disney or Universal within an hour. You could also head over to the beach in about the same time. The area around the main campus has a little of everything from shopping to restaurants.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Lack of Sports Support – For such a big university the students are slow to show up at games.

1 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: What's Your Fix? The school is littered with drugs; pot, ecstasy, alcohol, mushrooms, and cigarettes.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: Where You from? Wide amount of diversity with people from all different backgrounds and places.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: The financial aid process is very straight forward. You only have to fill out your FASFA and the financial aid department takes care of the rest.

3 College Junior

Technology: UCF has plenty of computer labs and several free printing labs for students. The WiFi connection is slow and unreliable at times and there are not enough computers in the library since it becomes very crowded.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Pretty Happy – I do receive a good amount of aid from the school, but I really would like to receive Federal Work study, but am unsure of how to do so. As far as my paperwork goes, things are have gone smoothly, but my friend was not so lucky. Sometimes you have to remind them about what you have already sent in.

5 College Freshman

Administration: If Punishments Exist, They Aren't Public – I have never been in a situation like this so I don't really have any first hand knowledge and I never hear about anything like that.

3 College Freshman

Technology: I Spend My Life Waiting in Lines – The computer labs at University of Central Florida are often crowded at peak times but mostly you can get in and out within thirty minutes. The WiFi is shaky in some places and it is impossible to pick up in others. The Printing quota recently changed, but I think it is overall a pretty good system.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Love the Energy – I like UCF because it's diverse in its student body and has a wide selection of activities from sports to social events..its a fun environment to learn and very resourceful and united, everyone is helpful and supportive to cheer each other on, and college life is not just a learning experience but a memorable one. It's also spirited college where everyone can take a role in joining the college's activity and share their input to make it a better place to come.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Spirited Student Body – The University of Central Florida is extremely developed in its student involvement, school spirit,and athletics. Their trademark colors gold and black represent the knights and all students who are enrolled or prospective are influenced by the college's pride in its reputable football team. The college has much diversity welcoming students from all walks of life to learn and support each other in the spirit of true teamwork, and most students enjoy a collaborative effort to improve the college many resources and take advantage of all thats offered. The college is also known to host many events to encourage participation and hundreds of clubs and organization to help educate its alumni and provide a fun learning experience through variety and enjoyable activities. Also there's a great workout facilities for free, to allow students with a busy schedule to stay active and healthy. The university sponsors many productions of its annual plays directed from its theater majors and film department to ensure a creative and recreational time for its students.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Not enough for every student driver and faculty member.

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!
