3 College Senior

Technology: Computer Availability Is a Plus – The college of business buildings at UCF offer a decent amount of computer space. They provide a computer lab which is open all day, it can become crowded near mid-terms or finals. They provide free printing labs which is a huge plus for all UCF students.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: From what I've heard, the team sprit at UCF is very high. The university's Facebook page is filled with photos of students cheering and having a great time. I'm hoping to get onto their Bowling Team in Fall 2012 and I can't wait!

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Again, I have not attended UCF. However I'll be taking classes at their Cocoa Campus (an area I've been in for a while) and know the diversity of it decently; for the most part, the area is very diverse with religion, ethnicity, nationalities, etc. In addition, many people are accepting. However there are always those who are disrespectful.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: There isn't much choice at the dining halls, however they are extremely convenient if you are a freshman living in the dorms. It is right on the way to class. They always have a sandwich station and a pizza station and everything else varies.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Campus crime is not high, however there have been shootings recently off campus. On campus there is a feeling of security. The campus is wet so there is tailgating. The road the campus is located on is known for DUIs.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: My Experiences – This Spring 2012, will be my first semester at University of Central Florida. Therefore, I don't think I have the experience to answer these questions. However, the reason I decided to attend UCF is for a few reasons: 1) It offers a program that I'm interested in. My intended major is Exceptional Education... as far I know, this is not offered at any other Florida universities. And working with students of various exceptionalities is what I want to do with my life. 2) I graduated with my A.A. degree from Brevard Community College, and the two colleges have a strong connection allowing me transfer easily. 3) It's close to home. I wanted to study at a place close to home, and UCF is only about an hour away.

4 College Junior

Local Area: The University of Central Florida in located on the outskirts of Orlando, about 25 minutes from downtown. It is very much a "college town" in this area. The drive to Disney, Universal, and Sea World can easily be a pleasant day trip. The school is also very close to the town of Oviedo, which is very much a Southern type of town.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: The atmosphere that surrounds my school is a great one. There are many stores and retaurants around. Everything is at our disposal.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Very Eventful – This school has so much to offer from studying, to meetings, to fun activities like movie nights, lazertag, concerts, ice skating, and inflatable games. There is always something going on whether it is fun or educational.

3 College Freshman

Parking: I currently live on campus and there are shuttles that bring students from UCF affiliated housing, but if you get to school early enough there are parking spaces. School tends to get full from 9-3. Also on Friday's there seems to be a lot more parking spaces. However, I have never been in the parking garages and there are a bunch on campus so I don't think parking is that awful.

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: Library are the perfect place for a quiet study session

5 College Junior

Technology: Computer labs are really convenient because it allows the students to not spend money for printing and provides extra services such as scanning and faxing very helpful for academic purposes.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: It's Florida. It's either sunny or rainy and, more often than not, both. It really isn't a problem unless you do a lot of walking. If that's the case, just make sure to keep a hat and umbrella handy. We rarely get cold fronts.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I Have No Idea – I'm not big on nightlife. I mean, I don't do clubs but enjoy friends' house parties.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Reliable Safety & Security – You can sign up for emergency alerts via text & email. You can count on campus police to respond quickly.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Personally I'm not involved in athletics, but spirit is everywhere on game days. The basketball games are probably the best to go to. Student athletes have pretty high academic standards, which is great.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Dining on Campus – I suggest staying at a dorm/student apartment with a kitchen. Don't bother buying a meal plan. Both dining halls are kind of gross, and way too far apart from each other. The union is probably the best place to go eat, though none of the options are particularly healthy. It's all fast food and those restaurants get old after a while. Einstein Bros is probably the only place I eat at on campus anymore.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Our recreation & wellness center is absolutely amazing. Some buildings are older than others, but the newer ones are beautiful and clean. Our library is huge and always helpful. Our student union could use some better restaurants. The campus itself is beautiful.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Black Greeks – i think for such a newly popular university the african american greek life is pretty engaging and entertaining.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Fan Support – I think being at ucf i would go to football games because it is so fun seeing the fans with such school spirit and to be able to be apart of it

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus at Pegasus Landing use to be amazing but from what i hear their prices are going up which isn't good.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My experience at UCF has been amazing so far. UCF keeps improving every year.

4 College Sophomore

Parking: The parking garages on campus make parking accessible for traveling students.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The drug scene on most college campuses must be an area of focus. UCF does an excellent job at making the campus as safe as possible. Although most colleges try to focus their time and ability on "drugs", UCF does a great job at focusing on underage drinking.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Finanacial Aid Process Is Speedy – I receive my direct deposits on time and financial aid appears when I need it to.

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!
