3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Nice Variety – The girls at UCF reflects many different cultures and is based on what you like. There are some very beautiful woman that attend the university, and if I had to judge the guys I would say they are ok.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Safe Campus – The campus feels very safe, there is security call boxes everywhere around campus, and security cards are always walking around. I could not have asked for a safer campus.

5 College Sophomore

Local Area: Best College – UCF offers a wide variety of new experiences and opportunities. UCF has an awesome gym and pool.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are so many sections of each class offered, which makes it easy to enroll and have a really awesome schedule. There are so many different clubs and organizations available, so you can easily find one that suits you. The on-campus living communities often have parties which make it easy to make new friends.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: There is a bus that goes around campus. There is a shuttle that goes off campus. Students can get free taxi passes in the student union.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: Each month UCF puts on Late Knights. It's a campus-wide drinking-alternative party. It's a lot of fun.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: Good but Not Excellent – I like seafood but I cannot find a close place on campus.

4 Recent Alumnus

Local Area: Lots of Active Societies – Orlando is one the most attractive place not only in US but also in the world because of all attractions it has. Such as Disney world, Universal, state parks, and so on. UCF is also one the top rate universities in the world which has lots of potential.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Many Apartments Nearby – I don't know if UCF can help students find these apartments near the school, for example if there are pamphlets and other information provided, but there is a bounty of apartments and housing near UCF. Students have no problem finding affordable housing near the school and near fun things to do - movies, restaurants, etc.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Security on Campus – There are always campus security guards around patroling the areas either by car or on foot. There are also call boxes around for emergencies. The campus is weel lit at night and I always feel safe.

4 College Senior

Weather: Weather does not really affect the campus experience. It's usually pretty sunny here. There are times when it rains heavily and that can be a problem if there's a lot of walking that needs to be done, but unless there's a hurricane there really isn't a big problem.

4 College Senior

Administration: I would have to say that UCF is pretty strict when it comes to it's school policies. I don't see anything wrong with that, though. I would rather the university be strict and help students stay safe than the other way around. The university also has to take into consideration how it wants to be portrayed in the media. A while back there was an incident where an entire class was caught cheating. It became big news, but I think UCF handled it well.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: UCF personally did not offer me any major scholarships, most of the financial aid I have received is based on Florida's Bright Futures Scholarship and also student grants and loans.

3 College Junior

Parking: Parking at UCF is a bit hectic due to the fact that there are over 50,000 students looking for parking at similar times. The parking decals are very expensive and also do not allow you to park everywhere, only in certain lots. Tickets for parking violations are very frequent and I have received over 3 tickets in a semester alone.

4 College Junior

Diversity: UCF has an extremely diverse population along with a very understanding social atmosphere in regards to that diversity. We have students of all races, genders, ethnicities, and sexual orienatations and also several student run organizations that coinside with those diverse populations.

4 College Junior

Diversity: A Very Diverse Campus – UCF has a very diverse student population. There are people with all different backgrounds and ethnicities that all seem to cohabit peacefully in one place. Everyone seems to get alone pretty well.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Really Neat Coffee Shops – There are some really unique coffee shops near campus taht offer a variety of food options as well as live entertainment most nights of the week. During the day they are great places to study and at night they are good places to kick back and relax!

4 College Junior

Technology: Labs Are Usually Crowded on Campus – Our computer labs on campus are usually busy with students at all times. However, there are enough labs on campus that if one is full, there are more that you can go to.

3 College Senior

Parking: Not Bad – Permits, tickets and fines are outrageous...but that is how UCF pays for its 9 or so parking garages. The UCF bus is pretty consistent and good option for those without cars. Parking depends on the time and location of your classes. Typically time during rush hours is maybe 15-20 minutes to find a space. Quite a few park right off campus and walk to save buying a decal, or park at a garage farther away from their classes because it takes the same time to walk as find parking.

2 College Senior

Athletics: Very Limited – Not much enthusiasm for UCF sports, especially football and basketball. Teams are consistently average and thus so is fan support. School spirit is only during homecoming, and most students don't even know when that is (commuter school big reason). Athletic facilities are ok.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: A lot of places that offer student discounts, or are cheap enough that you don't need them. Within a 1 mile radius there must be close to 50 places to eat, something for everybody!

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Not Your Average Library – There is not another college that can compare to UCF's nightlife. With downtown Orlando right around the corner, there is never a shortage of clubs. For those who dont want to go downtown, right across the street for UCF is a plaza filled with bars and clubs. The most popular of these is known as Knight's Library.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The Life of a Student – On campus housing at UCF is great. The dorms are new and in most of the dorms you have your own bedroom and each dorm has at least one bathroom (none of that community bathroom stuff). The RAs are very helpful and friendly. The only downfall to housing at UCF is that there is not enough housing for everyone. Actually most of the students are forced to live off campus.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Reflecting at the Pond – UCF is absolutely beautiful. It was one of the main reasons I chose the school. The gym is immaculate and the buildings are state of the art. There are even sculptures around campus to add to the beauty. The world famous Reflection Pond is home to Homecoming's "spirit splash" and the pond is a great place to sit and enjoy the beauty of the school and reflect on your studies.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: It rains alot over the summer, we get pretty bad storms. Also it's typically hot being Florida, but we get a very decent winter season, not too cold

View student contributors

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!
