I think there are some really great professors, however, there are some professors that are absolutely horrible, or rather, some professors that don't understand outstanding situations (death of a parent, even) or some where you can do everything to get a grade you wanted, but still end up with less.
Regardless, the grand majority of professors are great, even if the workload is a lot, it's worth it overall.

Both of my two majors are very simple to get into, basically, you can just declare a major and that's it, it's like that for anyone involved in a humanities major, I would assume. I think it's more difficult for other majors, but I'm not sure as I've never ventured out of the humanities.

It's way too hot most of the time. It doesn't help if you're in or around the older buildings on campus because there's not a lot of shade. When it happens to be cold--very rarely--it often seems like some of the buildings, especially in the Business Administration building and the Engineering building are the same temperature as outside.

There is quite a variety of actual restaurants on campus. I wouldn't know so much about the actual dining halls but... there are plenty of options for buying lunch or snacks between classes at UCF.

The computer lab with the best computers always has a huge wait. If you want a computer instantly, there's more than enough in other labs, but those computers are pretty slow. So I suppose it's a trade off. Wifi connection for personal computers is hit or miss.

Right now I have not personally researched off campus housing. I am entering as a freshman and will living on campus. I hear from my friends that are attending UCF that they love living off campus and they did not have a problem finding a home, but I personally cannot rate it right now.

Guys & Girls:
There are all sorts of girls and guys at UCF. The population is nearly 65000 people. There has to be at least one special person out there. If it's not love you're looking for, then basically most people are friendly, though they may portray a bit of cockiness.

The nightlife is not for "students". It's for party animals. As for clubs, there are barely any clubs for under-18 students. However the nightlife is great for legal drinkers. More clubs. More parties. More insane lives. For the underage, like me, house parties are the best. Usually frat parties are better than the clubs. Better music, food, and most importantly free.

I received an amount that was quite low for an outstanding student. My FAFSA and financial aid forms were "lost" in the process. I live in Celebration. So to drive to the financial aid office every single time a mishap had occured was one, quite annoying, and two, a waste of time. In the end, I got my money.

Greek life is currently nonexistent due to all sororities and fraternities being put on temporary suspension due to allegations of hazing. Before the hazing incidents, Greek life didn't play that big of a deal on campus. I went to rush and got invites to a few fraternities, but decided that Greek Life isn't for me. While Frats go out to bars and hold their own parties, everybody can take part in just about everything a fraternities offer (other than the bonding trips you pay extra for).

The attendance for sporting events is not as great as it used to be. At the start of the season football and basketball games achieved sizable crowds, but as the seasons wear on it seems that there are less than 40,000 people in attendance, which is embarrassing for a school of over 60,000 students. IM sports are pretty big, as I have participated in quite a few, including IM Basketball, IM Flag Football, IM Baseball, IM Kickball, and IM Soccer.

The campus is very layed back and not very strict. Sure there are rules in place for your safety and well being, but the majority of rules in play here all have to do with common sense. For example, try not to act all crazy when decide to drink and the campus police shouldn't bother you.

Fairly simple process that is smooth and self explainitory. All you have to do is fill in ucf in the college attending blanks when you are filling out your fafsa and boom, you're in. Any questions or mistakes you think may have been made on your application and all you have to do is go to the financial aid building located in Millican Hall and the trained proffesionals will be able to assist you. The school sends you plenty of emails to let you know about deadlines and such dealing with financail aid, so you never fall behind or get left out.

Very well kept and good looking apartments. Close to campus and close to entertainment all around the orlando area. Inexpensive in my opinion, which is wonderful.

I would grade the student life on campus at the University of Central Florida with an A. My grade is so high because there are always events such as sports, high profile comedians, concerts, and a lot more activities to entertain all the students on campus. Going to UCF was the best decision I could of made.

I am happy with the program at UCF. It well prepared for for entry to the pharmacy graduate program. The ability to find a job without entering into a graduate program after this one is very slim. If i could do it over again, i would.

UCF is located in the middle of Orlando, FL. There is always plenty to do outside of school. UCF is located minutes away from Universal, Disney, and Seaworld amusement parks. There are a large variety of nightclubs and concerts often. The locals are friendly and the atmosphere at the school is one that is easy to fell comfortable.

I'm in the Biomedical Sciences program at UCF. The majority of the students in the program plan to go on to a graduate medical school. I believe i am well prepared to go on to grad school. The teachers are very helpful.

Academics are geared toward your major. The UCF curriculum and instructors are top notch. If you are undecided on a major then you will have to take non core classes and then the classes will or may not be relevant to your major.

It's Florida it is HOT during the summer. The winter can be cold (40's) but the sun warms up to 60's during day. The campus is big so you want to always keep an umbrella with you for those Florida afternoon showers.

The scholarships are very diverse and harder to come by. They are very specific to what you need to apply for to receive the scholarships.

Public transportation at UCF is very accessible. Shuttles run to and from campus from 6am to 10pm Monday thru Friday. This is very useful for students who live off campus and don't have a car. Also, people who do have a car use the shuttles so they don't have to worry about parking.

Guys & Girls:
Both guys and girls at UCF are very friendly and outgoing. You'll find every type of race and all different types of personalities. Everyone here is attractive for the most part.

Off-Campus Housing at UCF is very affordable for college students, however, safety is one of the biggest concerns. There is always some sort of crime going on around these apartments so it can be very scary at times.

We are knocking on the door of being one of the best in the country but we just need to improve our coaching and recruiting process to go the next level.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
