5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Endless Choices – Right off campus there is pretty much every fast food chain known to man; Chipotle, Zaxbys, Del Taco, Taco Bell, Buffalo Wild Wings, Panera, McDonalds, and so much more. I dont have a meal plan so I am always looking for new places to eat. I never have to go far and am always trying something new.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Great Variety! Basically anything you could ever want is either on campus or located right off campus. On campus we have Chick fil A, High Five Frozen Yogurt, two Subways (once that is open 24 hours), Burger King, Smoothie King, Starbucks, and Tailgaters(which is a great sports bar). We have two "cafes" for students with meal plans on either side of campus. I have eaten at both numerous times and have always enjoyed the food they offer. Overall, great variety on campus.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: The school is very clean and almost looks like a resort. It's also close to many theme parks. I especially like my program in Counselor Education.

3 College Junior

Weather: It's usually hot and sunny because it's Florida, which I am used to. However, the campus provides little shade for walking around campus, so that makes the heat worse.

4 College Junior

Parking: The permits are very expensive. They don't lift parking restrictions until 7:30 pm daily, which seems too late to me. Parking can be tough to find during peak hours, so it takes a while to drive around. A car isn't really needed to get around on campus, but off-campus places are not in walking distance.

5 College Sophomore

Transportation: Buses and More – UCF has its own transportation system. UCF buses for on and off campus travel around the university. They also rent zip cars.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I don't really see drugs as an issue on campus. There is an alcohol program every student has to take before starting the school. There are posting on how to get help. The school wants the students to have fun, but they also want them to be safe.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I am a transfer student, employee and mother of a transfer student to UCF. I've gone through my daughters registration process. I feel the need to make me take the orientation is a bit repetitive. I know what needs to be done and would just like to move on to registration without the hoops. I understand new students have needs, but for those of us who feel comfortable bypassing the hand holding, we should be allowed.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Something for Everyone – Here at UCF we have so many clubs, and organizations that appeal to everyone. You are not alone here. There are so many things to do in Orlando that finding a job is not hard. I don't know what makes this different than other schools because I don't know much about them, but I do know that UCF is a place to be proud of, and a place that brings out the best in people.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The Greek life here at UCF seems to be a fun experience; I however am not a part of it. I see them around the campus and they always have some type of event going on. They all seem happy to be apart of their family but they seem to only associate with themselves. I don't feel that a person has to be a Greek to have fun or to have a positive college life.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Good, but Still Room to Improve – When I previously said I like to eat off campus, I mean a good ways off. Still the selections are there and plentiful for those who have the money, but if you like to pinch pennies when heading to school or going back i'd just stop by somewhere further away.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: A Decent Selection to Choose from – Can't say I am the biggest fan of eating on campus since I can usually find better prices away from there, but it's not a bad experience when I have no choice to do it. There are a good variety of places to eat at there and the selections offered would be plenty enough to satisfy an average student.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Awesome Gyms – The gyms at UCF are quite an awesome experience from what I have seen thus far. If you have time in the morning from the typical study curriculum they are always there to help start the day off on the right foot. There is plenty of equipment to work with, trainers there to assist, and overall it is a nice free experience. Many who go, including myself, would highly recommend trying it out if your'e a student and haven't done so yet.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Campus Is Great – There is something always happening on the campus. It is a fun enviorment, and you never have to go too far to get what you need. There are so many people who live on campus, that you really build relationships that will last. It's an experience that everyone should experience.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: My favorite UCF facility is most definitely the gym! It is amazing. 2 story rock climbing wall, free work out classes, indoor track, indoor and outdoor courts, Olympic size lap pool, leisure pool, and all of the top of the line fitness equipment!

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: New Buildings Are Great. All of the new buildings on campus are amazing. Especially the gym. The only buildings that are not good are the old ones like in ferrell commons, but those are being replaced soon. So basically are campus will be awesome.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greeks Vs Non-Greeks – Greek life to Greeks seems extremely important, but most Non-Greeks frown upon them. Greeks think the school's social scene revolves around them, that may be true if you consider partying all the time the only social scene. Non-Greeks realize there are not only options to party but many other fun things to do on and off campus without the superficiality of Greek life.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: All dining options around the University are Fantastic there is always something for everybody and only a few minor issues.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Food: On campus there are not only 2 different main meal plan halls, but also we have two sports bars, at least 12 different food options in the student union, in addition to other fast food locations around campus inside of the library, book stores, gym, and spread out all over campus. You would never have to worry about not finding the kind of food that you want because there are food options for everyone.

4 College Junior

Parking: Parking on campus is fine early in the A.M. Don't try to come to campus at noon and expect to find a good parking spot. Parking garages are wrapped around the entire campus so there is always parking however UCF provides shuttles which I personally use.

5 College Junior

Technology: School Comuters – State of the art labs with free printing for students, wireless throughout the campus, everything state of the art.

5 College Junior

Local Area: The local atmosphere at UCF is awesome. There is so much today on a daily basis. Some of the activities I take part in are intramural sports, the gymnasium which is state of the art with a subway and rock climbing wall. Orlando offers great attractions such as Disney and Universal. Friendly vibes all around campus.

4 College Junior

Transportation: Options Are Available – UCF runs a shuttle line that services many of the nearby off-campus communities.

3 College Junior

Campus Quality: Dated Architecture – The university was founded in the 60's, so a lot of the architecture looks really dated. They have done a great job with the newer buildings though, and worked hard to make them beautiful. UCF has all the resources a student could want, including a beautiful rec center.They recently revamped the library as well.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: Definite Party Scene – Drinking is a definite popular hobby for most students at UCF. There are numerous house parties and the local bars are always packed from Thursday through Saturday night. I don't know of much policy enforcement.

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!
