Guys & Girls:
People at UCF are just like normal college students. There is a good mixture of young and older students. There are a lot of people at UCF so you meet new ones everyday. I like the satellite campuses atmosphere too. People are friendly and very helpful. Much better than the local community college.

Parking at UCF is actually not too bad. When it's a busy day, it can be tough. Overall though, it is good. The UCF campus security is good about patrolling and locating people who are not parked correctly. I like the monitoring and police presence at the school.

Not a lot of Asians or middle eastern people. Mostly white and Hispanic students.
College Junior 2013-04-22T14:07:43Z
New but can be dirty. Mold and mildew are a huge problem.

I came to the University of Central Florida because of the great atmosphere that the campus and its students both offer. They provide countless opportunities for helping their students to succeed in their studies and more. The togetherness of the student body is irresistible and can''t be beat by too many other schools in the country!

You can drive, bike, skateboard or take the shuttle. Shuttles run at a certain time however so you have to run on their schedule.
Parking isn't as bad unless you get to UCF late morning to early night (10 AM-6PM are always the most busiest times). Many people have Fridays off so that day you generally can show up whenever and still find a good parking space.

There are a wide variety of options of off-campus dining that offer afforadable and filling meals to your typical college student budget. Local Pizza restaurants such as Lazy Moon and Five Star, Italian food such as Olive Garden (All you can eat soup, salad and breadsticks offered ONLY at lunch time), Hawaiian Grindz (Delicious Hawaiian food), Sus Hi (the Japanese Chipotle), Frozen Yogurt and many more!!! :D

There are shuttles coming from almost every apartment building off campus. If you live on campus you can walk to every single one of your classes

All my teachers have been very good at what they do, very interesting, and always there to help
College Sophomore 2013-04-20T18:53:20Z
Parking is reasonably priced. Usually always a spot to find

I am required to participate in an internship in order to graduate from my PSM program. The University is not very helpful in terms of assisting in finding and lining up internships but they are available for those that are willing to search. Most available internships are not paid and focus more on job training and contract gathering.

I frequent the new Graduate Student Center which has two computer labs, a presentation and conference room where you can practice oral presentations with a full projector screen. This area is all brand new and there are never any issues getting a computer or printing off a report.

The area surrounding UCF has a variety of apartment and condos to choose from as well as neighborhoods where rental homes are often available. The majority of the apartments are what you would expect for a college area and are relatively cheap, clean and easily accessible to campus. I am able to ride my bike to get to everything I need which I find convenient.

There are TONS of off campus housing options for UCF. All are individual leases by room,so if your roommate cant pay, it wont effect you. Depending on here you're at eefects your cost obviously, but I lived in a student apartment my first year and paid $529 including all utilities. There are ones directly across from campus and there is also a UCF bus that comes and is free. I never had any safety issues, overall it was a great experience.
College Junior 2013-04-19T00:05:52Z
Parking can be a huge issue. Always allow extra time to find a space so youre not late for class. If you live in a student apartment off campus I would suggest riding the UCF bus. That way you dont have to pay for a permit, the bus is free and it saves a headache for sure. Any tickets should be paid asap as well.

What impresses me most are the Professors. As I have already commented, they are real life experience Professors and they mingle that with the text book. UCF must hand pick Professors as opposed to just advertising. I have been a student at other schools, elevaluated student life and Professors as UCF is the best! UCF makes a point of involving the student in more than just academics, but in UCF social events as well. You feel a part of a student society; a close knit group. Whether yo complete your studies online or in a classroom, the opportunities are equal. The staff stays in contact through the Knights email and apprises the student daily of opportunities.

Health & Safety:
Crime will happen anywhere you have groups of individuals. I personally know some of the campus police and they really care. Some police forces make you feel as if you can't rely on them but not the UCF police; we have or own police force.

Some see Greeks as snobby but I think that is just a prejudice. Greeks are admitted because of GPA-they study harder than some and some people are just jealous.

While there are definitely drugs on campus, it doesn't really show unless you are looking for it.
College Junior 2013-04-17T19:38:41Z
House parties are fun, Nightlife is great to get your mind off of a hard day of work and school.
College Sophomore 2013-04-17T05:51:03Z
Everything on campus is amazing. There are constantly campus events and activities to take part in so there is never really a dull moment as long as you're active in the school. We currently have one huge gym with tons of athletic machines and even a rock climbing wall. We also have a smaller one which is not as crowded. Memory mall and the reflection pond are great green spots to relax, as well as the nature trails and Lake Claire.
College Sophomore 2013-04-17T05:50:40Z
I honestly never see drugs being used on campus other than alcohol if you count that. But I think it all depends on the people you hang out with.

It's Florida so of course it will get hot, but it's not terrible. I've lived in Florida most of my life so I'm pretty used to it. Fall and Winter gets cooler, but it still can be warm. It kind of rains a lot and gets humid in the summer, but the rain may only stay for like an hour a day. It's actually the typical, crazy, Florida weather.
College Freshman 2013-04-16T21:54:28Z
It's not as comfortable as when you live with at home.
College Sophomore 2013-04-16T20:13:57Z
The dorms at UCF are horrible. Lake Claire especially is dirty, small, noisy, and far from everything on campus. They are just as expensive as renting an apartment. I would not recommend living on campus.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
