3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel pretty safe when I walk around on campus. Their are a lot of emergency stations where if you press a button someone will come help you.

4 College Freshman

Weather: Not Much to Complain About – The weather is never really that bad. The only issue is rain, and it doesn't rain too terribly often. Just keep an umbrella in your backpack and you'll be fine.

4 College Senior

Local Area: Off the Beaten Path – Orlando is a vibrant patchwork of a community, no matter which scene you prefer to be in, you can find something in this city. The downtown area is about a 40 min drive away from the main University of the city (the one I attend)which is the University of Central Florida. Also not too far away is the Winter Park area which has a more cultural pull to it with specialty shops and interesting places hidden all around.

All you have to do is get lost or explore and you will find something interesting to do.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It Could Be Better – I had a bunch of problems in UCF during my first two years here with the financial aid department. They lost my transcripts twice and had me go back to my high school to provide them with a hard copy. Furthermore my loans were not disbursed to until four weeks before the semester was over. However, in the end everything turned out alright and things went a bit more smoothly.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Not Many Complaints – Although I don't really like some of the food on campus or difficulty in parking, I love UCF. The campus is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen in Florida and I love how they are constantly trying to improve and make UCF better place for the students.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Not Bad – The food that is offered on campus is definitely satisfactory however whenever students decide they want a proper meal they usually go off campus for such. There's mostly sandwiches and generic food items, it can get quite repetitive. Some places offer the same type of food however it would be under a different name.

3 College Junior

Local Area: The school itself is an attraction being that it is the second biggest campus in the nation. the sporting.events are also good

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drinking Isn't Uncommon, and Smoking Isn't Totally Absent. Pretty much every weekend I hear people going to go drink and sometimes they even talk about doing it on week nights when they don't have class the next day. Though everyone doesn't drink, like most people probably think, I think it is safe to say the average UCF student drinks at least once a month. Also, I occasionally hear about students smoking marijuana, and sometimes I smell it in the dorm halls, but it is much less frequently practiced than drinking.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Stereotypical College Kids – I feel like the majority of the guys I see at UCF are classic muscle heads who put school second to looking good and partying and who barely get by with grades, and the rest of the guys aren't too outgoing so it's hard to make friends with them. The same goes for the girls, I feel like most of them aren't as focused on school as they should be and treat college as sort of a big version of high school and stick to their cliques.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Overall Safety – The UCF campus is very secure and I have never felt unsafe while there, even late at night. And if I ever do feel if I am at danger, there are emergency poles all over campus to call the authorities on.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Amazing and Very Welcomed – Overall tmy experience has been great. The proffesors are amazing and there is always something to do.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Im Not to Sure – They seem to be good we had an incident in the beggining of the year but other than that they seem to stay out of trouble.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Our Fans and Sports Teams Are Amazing. When you go to a Knights game the atmespher is the best. We cheer on our team and we do it with the most school spirit. Even when its pouring down rain we still show up to support out teams.

3 College Freshman

Majors: I would really like to have an internship while in school, and it's actually a part of my major.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: They run the school. It's really hard to find a group of people that at least one person isn't a Greek.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: It's Good – Car theft can happen often but dorm life is pretty safe. Keep parties down and alcohol away unless 21.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I Focus on School – I do not party. I returned to school after my party days.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There are no options other than dinning at the Daytona State which closes early. This is frustrating because most of UCF's classes are at night. No coffee!

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I Love It! Our school has amazing events such as free food and prizes almost every weekend. There are plenty of opportunities to meet new people!

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: Somewhat Effects the Atmosphere – Greek life is prominent if you are involved in that aspect of college, but it does not overshadow any other social groups. There is no class warfare between the non greeks and greeks.

4 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: A Lot to Do! There are shuttle buses to take students to the nearest clubbing scene and there are a lot of options! Those over 18 will have a great time.

5 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: Tons of Fun – There are SO many off-campus restaurants of varying price levels just down the road from the college. There are major chains as well as mom and pop places, even a cupcake place featured on Food Network and The Cooking Channel! Many of them offer student discounts and engage in game day specials. Definitely check out The Tilted Kilt, Sweet!, and First Watch.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: If You Look, You Will Find – The scholarships offered are usually hidden and not really advertised. Other than the Pegasus Scholarship which every incoming freshman is automatically put into consideration, the others are there; you just have to look for them.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Pretty Fun – The greek scene at UCF can be considered sheltered, but many, if not all the members are friendly and outgoing. There is no precedence that you MUST be in a frat or sorority, but it does't hurt to socialize with them, because they are fun to be around.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Very Safe – The campus does all it can to promote safety throughout the campus. Utilizing resources that are easily available to students, one can always travel without having to worry about safety.

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!
