4 College Sophomore

Administration: Academic Dishonesty – Our univeristy is really strict when it comes to academic dishonesty.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Perfect Location – i live off-campus and i have to admit that there are a lot of apartment complexes around the campus with very affordable prices

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Transfer Students – I came to UCF from Valencia community college and i was really impressed about how smooth the transition was, and also the academic advisors are always available and very helpful.

4 College Senior

Local Area: Small Town, but Lots to Offer – I like my school because the campus is located in a small city area and also because is close to where I live, close to the campus is Tijuana flatts and many good restaurants. Furthermore we have an amazing public library that helps me get in track with my research and education. Also, we have a cool learning center where I can go anytime if I need help with my classes, the tutors are very helpful. And the most special and coolest thing ever is the National Training Center in Clermont where any UFC student can come for free and enjoy all the facilities it has to offer.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Basically Safe – I have always felt safe on UCF's campus. Everyone is near each other so if there was ever an emergency, appropriate services would arrive in a timely manner.

3 College Senior

Party Scene: The prices of alcohol and over-bearing cops make sure that you keep to your local scene during schooldays, and only venture off into the city during weekends. Drinks are pricy wherever you go (unless they have a special) and dowtown is usually 15-20 min drive from the UCF area, assuming that is where you are staying.

Parties vary depending on the area and clearly also who is throwing them.

You tend to develope more of a hang-out spot/house as oppossed to a party crew unless you have a designated driver who is all about it.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Ghetto Life Meets College Student Life – A lot of the places around UCF have become quite ghetto as dealers seem to be wanting to be gathering where the money is at: college students. As you tour through the neighborhoods you will encounter all kinds of cars, people, and sometimes even drugs (not that I'm into any, but you def get random offers). Most of the people are pretty chill and won't bother you, but there have been some encounters between the police and random dealers/grow houses within the neighborhoods around campus, not to metion random fights that break out between drunken college student even at the most upscale of places.

Fun, but be careful where you go, and if you're a pretty girl make sure to bring a friend...and maybe some mace.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Many Choices – Since the university has limited housing space for it's 40,000 student there are many choices off campus from the super cheap affiliated housing to up-scale apartments/townhouses. Some even find it more convenient to rent a home.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Many Options – many options off-campus. Located in a busy area and near a shopping center (Waterford) which has numerous locations to choose from. 20 min from downtown Orlando which has even more choices but more expensive

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Curriculum Materials Center – The curriculum materials center in the education complex is a wonderful resource. They have all the books and materials necessary to help students in the education field with any project. There are also a lot of reference materials that can be utilized.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: Tendency to Loose Things – I have had to stay on top of my scholarships making sure I got all my money because the school has a hard time keeping track of all the information. But they are easy to talk to when the first two months have passed. They do their best to make sure that you are taken care of.

3 College Freshman

Parking: Parking can be a hassle. There is no guarantee that you will get a spot even if you have a pass. But most students just walk or ride their bike so they do not have to worry about traffic.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Clean and Safe Enviorment – The new dorms are in a secluded area that feels like a resort. Staff comes in and does weekly cleaning of the buildings. It does not feel like we are on a college campus but instead it feeld like a small safe community.

3 College Freshman

Parking: Could Be Better – Definitely needs more packing lots or garages and needs to make parking permits more affordable.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: Location Location Location – If you can't find something to do on campus, (which is ridiculous since there are plenty of activities you can join through clubs or through the recreation center)then you can find multiple things to do off campus.
While there are no theme parks right in sight, there are plenty of restaurants, smoothie shops, ice cream parlors, and clubs to hang with your friends at.
If you want to go away from the main road Alafaya, then you can drive thirty minutes to the ever-popular beach: Cocoa. Or you can use your student discount at any of the semi-nearby Theme parks such as Universal or any of the Disney parks.

4 College Freshman

Majors: Civil Engineering – The process of getting into the major of civil engineering was fairly challenging because it required a lot of work which is good for the students because it prepares them for what the classes are going to be like and it was necessary to have good math and sciences done to get in as well. They do not have an abnormal process, just a demanding one because it is a difficult major.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: The drugs at UCF are not seen around campus because there are police members always on the watch and they keep the campus as a safe environment for all of the students.

4 College Freshman

Technology: Computer Labs – The computer labs are great and very efficient with helping students because the computers were great and with great speed and do not freeze or ruin one's work on them.

5 College Senior

Technology: I Am an Online Student – I am strictly an online student and find the network and MyUCF extremely reliable and easy to use. I am able to access my classes, grades, registration, etc. from anywhere.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Absolutley Awesome – This University is amazing. The campus is Beautiful, the faculty is very knowledgeable, there is always someone able to help you, the students are great. I could not imagime the college experience being any better abywhere else.

3 College Junior

Weather: Its very hot in the summer with no costal breeze and thunderstorms almost every afternoon. The beach is only an hour away and there are pools everywhere so summers are bareable.

Winters can get fairly cold (at leat for me a Florida native) but the sun shines and it is usually beautiful.

All in all I think the weather is very nice....Lets put it this way, it could be way worse.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Food Around Campus – There is just about everything you can imagine to eat around campus. A drive down University blvd. will give you the option for just about any fod you may be in the mood for at a variety of price points. You have your fast food, McDonalds, Wendeys, Burger King, Backyard Burger, Chik-Fila, and Taco Bell. Then theres the college staple of pizza...Lazy Moon, a UCF exclusive features pizza slices the size of a normal pizza pie for a very reasonable price, and also offers a unique and fun atmosphere. You also have all of the normal pizza places like Pizza hut, Papa Johns, and Dominos. There are also a number of sit down restaruantes including Applebees, Ruby Tuesdyas, El Cero, and Azteca. AS you can see just on the main road leading into campus students are able to eat whatever they want at what ever price point they are looking for.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: Take all forms to school as early as possible because then during the first week of class you'll be waiting to be at the financial aid office for hours to be assisted.

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: Inside Scoop – Athletics, the AMAZING atmosphere, the outdoor environment, the number of resources, and the fact that the school is located next to many common stores.

5 College Junior

Athletics: There is always a sport being played either on campus or at the apartment complexes. Sports are a major thing at UCF. Physical fitness is also very important.

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!
