4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Transportation for me is wonderful. Depending on what time of day I'm transporting, traffic could be congested. But cost is great and the location is extremely convenient. Buses, free shuttles, and rentals are provided as well.

4 College Sophomore

Parking: The school offers numerous parking ooptions for students. They are continuously building new parking garages and provide many free, convenient shuttles. The only down-side to the parking is that student decals are $90 a year.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: As far as my invlovement at the school, I have never been offered, exposed to, or know anyone involved in the drug scene.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: I Like It. I like the weather, although it can be a bit unpredictable. The only times classes are canceled are for holidays and for severe weather problems, like storms. I think the weather actually enhances the college experience because it makes the campus look pretty.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: UCF has a good transportation system. They offer shuttle rides to people who live within a 25 mile radius. The cost isn't too bad. The only thing is, since I drive, it takes me 40 minutes to get there.The cost isn't too bad either. There are also the Linx buses students can take if they live really far. But other than the distance, I would say transportation is good.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: UCF offers alot of computers at the student's disposal. There is a computer lab in, I would say, 95% of the buildings. The library also has computers on every floor. The speed is good although it could be better. The printing rates are fair enough, 10 cents per page. UCF also offers an area called Knights Study where students can print for free and study there but can sometimes get crowded.I also think the network is reliable enough but sometimes it can get very slow. Alot of people carry their own computer or tablet, but I think that you don't have to because there are plenty of computers available.

5 College Junior

Weather: Being in Central Florida supplies each and everyone of us with excellent weather. Rain is a little more common come spring, but most of the time we have 80-85 degree weather.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Up in Smoke – Drugs at UCF are not a huge problem. Alcohol is present depending on who you are with. Marijuana and shrooms are the other drugs that are being used the most.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Safety Seems Decent – UCF seems to take care of safety measures quite well. There is a UCF police station on campus. Located around campus are push button posts that call campus workers to your location in case of emergency. Students can also sign up on the school's email list. This list will send out email's if a crime or something like that comes up.

3 College Junior

Campus Quality: Goes Round and Round – The circular campus does a lot to make you feel like you're immersed in the world of college where ever you are on campus. There's always something happening at the student union and the numerous study areas spread around campus means that you'll always be able to find a spot to study and will often run into your friends anywhere on campus. Get into Greek Life and be involved with your Student Organizations and you'll have a great time at UCF, just remember to study.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Unfortunately, the UCF administration is NOT Greek friendly. While the greek community as expanded in recent years, it has done so in the face of constant adversity driven primarily from a hostile administration which refuses to represent these students in a fair environment. Besides this, the Greek life is thriving and it maintains the close knit community that Greek Life is normally associated with. It's always great to sit next to a person on a random flight to Chicago and be able to talk about Greek Life.

5 College Junior

Academics: Computer Science Teachers Actually Care – It's rare now a days to see a college which hires Professors who actually care about your education and progression through out your years. UCF's Computer Science track has a really great person in charge of Advising and some stellar Professors who help to direct the education of the teachers. From getting you in the classes you need when you ACTUALLY need them to getting you an internship or research program, they are there for you and it has been really refreshing.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: Transferring Made Easy. As a transfer student, all of my records were sent to UCF by the community college I attended beforehand. Once my paperwork was processed, it was simply a matter of updating everything to ensure all information was current. Took a little bit of a wait, but I'm getting free money, so I didn't mind.

4 College Junior

Transportation: No Car? No Problem. Several of Orlando's public transportation buses have drop off points that are near UCF shuttles, and most, if not all, shuttles offered from UCF are free to use.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The campus buckles down about a few different things. Campus police are HUGE on J-Walking. Nobody really knows why, but it is the highest ticket on campus. They are driving around constantly. As far as partying on campus goes, there are a few upperclassmen living situation on campus, therefore the strictness really isn't up to par for on campus partying.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Places Are Everywhere. There are a great deal of apartment complexes and homes for rent near the UCF campus. Many of them are pricey, but many drop in price as the distance from the school grows. A fifteen minute drive to school may cost gas, but usually ultimately means money saved on rent. Many also offer additional services, such as school shuttles, pools, gyms, etc.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Guys and Girls on Campus – The guys on campus are mostly athletic. When I walk into the gym it is always packed, and many guys are all on sorts of teams at the school. Girls are also very athletic. Greek life is HUGE at UCF and many guys and girls are very involved. As a theatre major I surround myself with that crowd more often and it is definitely a smaller community at UCF, which is nice.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The off campus dining options consist of many! Orlando is almost built around UCF which makes it easy to find something to enjoy in every direction.

5 College Freshman

Weather: Not at All! Other univerities I have attended affect the students dramatically!! Here no one cares, they are still happy-go-lucky and fibrant as if the sun was shinning!! Just grab an umbrella--this is Florida!

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Tons of Options!! There are many places around here to dine!!! This place is also diverse in cultural foods and ofcorse there are student discounts as wel1 as some major specials for students!! My favorite place to go is Bangkok square, thier Sushi is phenomenal!!!

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: The Library Is Helpful!! I love the library because when I need to get caught up on school work I can always count on the library. It's quiet and the staff are always helpful; they even have a tech support associate here to help if your computer is acting up!! Not to mention the reassuring coffee shop located beside the computers!!

4 College Junior

Majors: I truly enjoy being a Sociology major, I have met friends from having them in multiple classes. The classes are very interesting and are on the right track for my future. I have also minored in criminal justice which makes the program so much more interesting. Professors are very helpful and preparing students for graduate school.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: On Campus Food – UCF's campus offers a variety of different food places for students to enjoy. Although majority may seem like fast food places, there is a salad bar as well as a pita place that are healthier. The locations are very convenient and located in different areas around campus. Coupons are given to those students that live on campus and are encouraged to go to these places to eat.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Fairly Easy – It was pretty easy to sign up for financial aid. I could use a little more than I was given in order to pay for books and housing, but signing up was simple.

4 College Junior

Administration: Academic Dishonesty Is Strictly Enforced – Any academic dishonesty has serious consequences at UCF.

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!
