The shuttles come every 15 minutes. That's probably one of the most convenient things if you live at dorms off campus and such.
Another convenience is if you have your own car. There are multiple garages to park in. You just need to make sure that you have your parking permit and money for gas.

If you're over 21, you might have more fun than those who are under. They do have an alternative thing for those who are not allowed to drink alcohol and such. It's called Late nights and they do that once a month (on fridays), every month. They give out free food at midnight and free prizes. It's cool but it's only once a month.

Health & Safety:
UCFs campus is very safe, i never have any issues of feeling in danger while on campus, and with our "safety poles" all around campus there is always a way to get a hold of the on campus police department.

The diversity on campus is extreme with many races, ethnicities, religions, political affiliations, and economic standings and everyone is so accepting!
College Sophomore 2013-05-04T21:59:31Z
There are many different places to chose from and two different dining halls.

They are pretty good but depending on where you use it it can be slow.

The nicer the weather the better grades you will get.

You have nothing to worry about, there is a vast array of different groups of people at the University of Central Florida and everyone is very accepting. I have had no issues with discrimination or racism, and I have not heard of any. It is very easy to find a group of people who are similar to you who will accept you.

The Greek life at the University of Central Florida is splendid. Everyone who is not involved in Greek life on campus regrets not doing so and is very jealous of those who are involved in Greek life. The sororities and fraternities on campus throw the best parties, stick to their philanthropies, and retain the highest GPA's. They truly have it all.

The weather is beautiful year round at the University of Central Florida. The fall weather is beautiful and warm but not too hot. The winters are cold and cozy, but not unbearable. There is however lots of rain during the summer semester and the end of the spring semester. This is a bit of a nuisance when you're trying to go from class to class, for you must always remember your umbrella or you'll be stuck waiting for the rain to pass under a building.

They don't explain much at orientation, so be prepared to do your own research on financial aid. Make sure to talk to a financial aid counselor, because you can solve many problems before they even arise simply by letting them check your aid situation.

The largest problem you'll have is with the occasional smoking hipster outside on the green or near the library. The drug scene is small in regards to other substances, besides drinking, which is talked about enthusiastically.
College Sophomore 2013-05-04T02:25:31Z
The weather is largely sunny, though it rains often enough to be unsurprising. Classes are almost never cancelled, save for the very rare occurance of a hurricane or tornado. Unfortunately, because of the size of the campus and the lack of covered walkways, you should bring a poncho or rain jacket to class if you suspect inclement weather.

The restaurants are mostly the same popular chains found throughout most of Florida. Subway, Chick-fil-A, etc. There are some great places in downtown orlando nearby if you're looking for a real change of scenery, but traffic can make these places hard to visit with any regularity.
College Senior 2013-05-03T00:44:34Z
There are a lot of restaurants in the UCF area. There are many in the actual university and there are many in the surrounding area. There are a lot of lounges and bars too.

Computers are new, fast and have good internet access, however sometimes it is hard to find a computer that isnt being used already. I always bring my laptop because sometimes I have difficulty finding a computer with access.

UCF is right in the center of Orlando. If you want to experience night life, UCF is about 20 mins from Downtown Orlando. If you like to shop, Waterford lakes is right around the corner from UCF. Melbourne beach is pretty close to UCF too.

There is a lot of variety when it comes to Mexican, American, Barbecue, and Asian. The only thing it is seriously missing is Cuban cuisine! I am from South Florida and when I miss home there is almost no place nearby that serves anything Hispanic besides Mexican. Other than that there is a wide variety of places to eat that are relatively cheap and offer student discounts. I would definitely recommend Buffalo Wild Wings. It is amazing! Very filling and good-quality meat.

Transportation is very easily accessible. There are buses that transport you to the different off campus housing. There is also a bus just for the rosen college of hospitality management which is very helpful so that the students don't have to commute everyday to class. The buses run all day long every 15 minutes so there is no need to worry about being late to class.

Guys & Girls:
Typically the guys and girls at this school act the same. We all study and meet up with eachother during classes. The clothes we wear are from the same stores like Abercrombie, American Eagel, Target. With regards to relationships, their could be an athletic guy with a smart girl, or two athletes. There really isn't any preferance. We all interact together and get along.

There are many places on campus to hang out. The library is quiet and you can get your studying done and print out your class notes. There are free print labs that allow you to print paper for your classes as well. The recreation and wellness center is where you can go to workout and take classes with your friends. There is also a pool to relax and hang out. There are lots of green trees and patches that one can sit down to relax and review for an exam.

When there is a big problem in school the administration controls it immediately. The police force is very strict and doesn't let anything past them. For instance a party that has lots of drinking a partying gets shut down if its too loud or if there is any underage drinking.
College Junior 2013-05-02T16:05:12Z
The restaurants off campus at UCF are basically your regular fast food and dine-in deal. The cost is very affordable and always available. When i want to go out i know there is always a different restaurant that i can go to.

The school seems to really enjoy the sporting seasons. Everyone decks out in their regalia and attend the games. They even tailgate!
Sorry, there are no reviews.
