4 College Freshman

Technology: Very High-Tech – There are many labs with up-to-date computers. And they are not too crowded most of the time.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Pretty Safe – The campus is beautiful and has many security guards. But there is a stealing problem, in vehicles particularly.

3 College Junior

Administration: Campus Strickness – I don't feel like the school is very strict when it comes to students social lives, everyone can pretty much do whatever they want as long as it isn't harming anyone else. When it comes to academics, UCF is serious about keeping up GPA's and staying off academic probation.
When it comes to underage drinking the police force is very serious at tailgating and UCF games.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Dining Off-Campus – There are lots of dining options off campus ranging from McDonald's to Red Lobster. There are always a lot of student discounts in the newspapers and some even come in our mailboxes. Some of student favorites are all the sushi places, including Kobe off Colonial. There's a large variety of sport bars, restaurants, and fast food places to choose from.

4 College Junior

Local Area: Fun Zone – Orlando is a big city with many attractions. There are a number of theme parks here ranging from Disney world to Universal studios, and even Lego Land. There are tons of parks and recreation areas. Something to do for everyone!

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Make sure you have all, I mean all forms completely filled out, then everything will flow smoothly.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: Computers are modern and up to date, speed reliability etc great. Just not enough for the student body.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Buzz Kill – Campus police are often roaming around to ensure safety but college game day, the tailgating areas are swarmed with campus police officers some disguised as normal tailgaters catching underage drinkers and punishing them to the fullest extent. With the caution of always being aware of the people you are around when participating in these weekend events, puts a damper on the college experience that I had originally pictured.

4 College Freshman

Majors: You have to stand out some how to get into the school. But once in when looking at the programs offered and when i finally chose one, the process was not hard, there is not extra process to go through when applying.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Give Yourself Time – No matter what finances are a pain to sort through. Complete all paperwork and stay on top off all your business and get everything done early so rushing in order to submit papers to receive aid does not add to your stress.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: New and Improved – The facilities here at the University of Central Florida is something to be proud of. Our campus is always being updated and remodeled to be state of the art which attracts many of the students here. The athletic facilities on campus, such as the football and soccer/track stadium, are only a few years old if not brand new, which draws students attention and attendance to the many sporting events our University provides. Because the university is a circular layout, the student union is the center of all activities. The design and welcoming presence is always populated no matter what time of day. The university's most popular place other than the student union would be the outstanding recreational center. Equipped with a rock-climbing wall, indoor track, state-of-the-art exercise machines, weights, lap and leisure pools, and many exercise classes to ensure the students well-being and health is easily accessible and fun.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Here at Central Florida, if you drive your own car and transport yourself to school, you have to either hit it at the right times or budget in extra time to find a decent parking spot, parking tickets are a pain!

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: A Lot of Shuffling – I received a few different financial aid opportunities but when it came to receiving and handling application processing, it was very difficult. I often had to go to different offices and wait in line to find the right person to talk to. many times the aid didn't go through and I had "holds" on my account that prevented me from registering for classes early until it was completed. The financial aid officers on the other hand were very helpful and did the best they could to alleviate the stress of it all but the process was long and inconvenient.

4 College Freshman

Parking: Park It – There is a various abundance of parking available on campus. The University is constantly creating more convenient parking systems for students to park as close to the classroom buildings and dorms as possible, making the option of driving to class less of a hassle. Permit costs are a little on the pricey side depending on whether you live on campus or not is the only downside. Meter parking is available around the local shops and restaurants on campus, which create opportunities for family or people around the community to come on campus to shop or eat. Ticketing is very strict, as police constantly patrol the lots to ensure safety of people and vehicles as well as checking car identifications. Having a car really is not a necessity when living on campus. Classes are close enough to walk to and from every day and is really the quickest option.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The Many Opportunities – There are a vast variety of food choices around campus. No matter what side of campus you are on, there are many opportunities to dine in or just grab a quick bite to eat on your way to class. The many variety of food choices vary from chinese and sushi, subs, frozen yogurt to Chick-Fil-a and Burger King, wraps, and smoothies. All the restraints located on campus are included on the meal plan/flex dollars. The two dinning halls on campus are the most populated places to eat on campus, providing students with all you can eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The varieties are plentiful on our campus at University of Central Florida.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Accademic Success – Choosing the University of Central Florida was an easy decision for me. The academic opportunities available are endless. Not only because the university offered the program of Health Science program but in choosing this school, the professors are there to create a successful students. In High School, College was expressed to be a huge change when it came to professors and larger class sizes, but at the University of Central Florida, the professors care about the students and their grades instead of creating tests and research papers in order to aid their own research. Majority of classes are relatively small in order to ensure up close interaction to better the experience as a student. As for aid in academic success, the university offers all-night study lounges as well as FREE assistance with editing papers and or resumes as well as free tutoring for all students are also available. All this just to help students create a successful experience throughout makes all the difference.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: Transportation on campus is great, and the shuttle service to and from campus is wonderful!

5 College Freshman

Administration: The one thing that I have seen UCF as a whole be extremely strict about is cheating. There is absolutely no tolerance for academic dishonesty. Integrity is very crucial at UCF.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The Off-Campus dining in Orlando is great! I can easily find delicious, affordable restaurants right near my apartment.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: They are expensive but there are a few that have good pricing. for most of the off campus housing there is a shuttle bus that takes you to and from school

4 College Freshman

Technology: The internet is pretty fast. only thing i hate is you have to use an ethernet cord in your dorm room so theres no wireless around there.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: The area ucf is located in is pretty nice. Less than five minutes away there is a little mall with many stores to shop in such as target, ross, victoria secret, claire's and many more. There are 2 walmart near the school.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Very Diverse – I would say overall UCF is a very diverse campus and is overall very accepting of the different cultures, sexual orientations, and religions.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I Bleed Black & Gold – Although we don't have the greatest football team, we have amazing school spirit. Everyone goes all out and dresses in black and gold. The football games are always full of students. I have a season to ticket.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Con: I made one mistake on a paper and they removed my financial aid. I am against loans. They are always busy in financial aid.

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!
