Parking no matter what campus isn't GREAT! You have to realize that like in most situations getting there usually is beneficial which usually leads to a decent parking spot. Decals are required, and if they are not used, there is a $30 parking ticket. If you live on campus, I suggest walking. If you live off campus, utilize the shuttles. If not, driving a car is fine, but like I said, just be there about 30 minutes before class to ensure parking and walking time.

If you live on campus theres a dining hall called Marketplace and there you will find normal cafeteria food and its really good food. In the student union is where you'll find all your fast food resteraunts such as Burger King, Subway, Asian Chao and many more. There is a couple of healthy spots too such as the salad bar and a couple of other places.

If you don't have any holds on your account the financial aid process will go smoothly. So don't have holds and you won't have any problems

Greek life is pretty average and you don't have to join one to be "cool." The different greeks at the school are all kinds of diverse. Of course they party alot but greeks do have a higher than normal gpa than students who aren't greek

The academics here is challenging sometimes but its really good. There are alot of good professors and the registration process isn't too complicated just as long as you don't have a hold on your account. The workload for the most part consist of 4 exams and maybe a few extra work so nothing serious

There are tons of places to live Off-Campus in Orlando. Prices generally range from $450 - $750 depending on where you want to live. The average is probably $550 (per person) for a 4/4 apartment. Almost all apartments in the area offer per person leases with electric/utility caps. Those leases include cable, internet, and tons of amenities.

I am currently double majoring in Business Management (Entrepreneurship track) and Finance. I am very happy with the business classes I have taken so far. There are a lot of resources for students who want to pursue their passion outside of the classroom. My favorite is the Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation. Any student (of any major) can head into the center with a business idea and get consulting/guidance on how to turn their idea into a real business. They even offer various workshops with guest speakers. The best part is, CEI is completely free. I intend to start my own business within the next few years and CEI has been extremely helpful with putting me on the right track.

Guys & Girls:
Generally everyone here is nice. Some can get cliquey with their groups but it's never hard to make friends. With two gyms on campus and countless intramural sports/outdoor activities on campus; there are tons of ways to meet new people and the majority of students seem to be pretty fit. As with any school, there are both introverted and extroverted people, but the majority of students here seem to be friendly and outgoing.
College Senior 2013-01-31T03:05:11Z
With so many people on this campus (we are the 2nd largest school in the nation) you are bound to meet someone of any background.

The athletics at the University of Central Florida are outstanding. For the varsity sports there is always a good turn out in the crowd with a mix between fans and students. Also, the varsity sports have been improving greatly over the years. The athletic facilities are amazing at UCF. The gym is enormous and has plenty of courts/areas for all types of recreational athletic play. In addition, a new gym has just recently been constructed and opened to the student body.

At the University of Central Floria, the academics never fall short of an A quality grade. There is a huge variety of curriculum programs available and the registration process couldn't be any simpler; it is all done online and if your class is full you are put into a waiting line that automatically enrolls you in the course if an opening is available. In regards to the professors, they are unbelievable. Nearly all of them try to make the lectures inviting and enjoyable so you don't have a terrible time even on the worst of days.

There are many different types of people that attend UCF. Many of the girls are good-looking and are involved in some way, shape, or form. a good amount of guys and girls are involved in UCF's Greek Life on campus in which many events take place constantly which also help the community philanthropically.

I'm currently in the College of Business and I have been extremely satisfied with the progress of my Education so far. The teachers have been extremely helpful and I have not encountered a bad teacher yet. I'm currently enrolled in a Marketing class that isn't too interesting; however, I always go to the class because the professor has found a way to make the class lively and interesting to anyone.

Each student is required to take a drug and alcohol awareness program during their first week enrolled. The school has a zero tolerance for drugs, alcohol, and recently smoking. The school finds ways to monitor use on campus and offers annoymous hotlines to report uses and peer pressure.

The off campus housing is very clean and many places are fairly new with nice amenities such as small gyms and pools. There are alot real close to campus and many more within a short drive. The price is not cheap but its not too bad either.

Some days it will rain out of nowhere, but we're in Florida, so what do you expect? Typically we have beautiful weather at UCF. The kind of weather that is not too hot, but not too chilly either. The 'just right' climate, that makes you want to sit outside by the fountain for no reason, only because the weather is nice.
College Senior 2013-01-30T00:42:06Z
Living on campus will give you the best college experience you could expect. Many living communities on campus have cookouts, picnics, and different activities for college students to intermingle with each other. The social atmosphere living on campus is better than off campus living.
College Senior 2013-01-30T00:39:39Z
There are plenty restaurants off campus that are convenient in location to the campus, and in price. Some restaurants even give discounts for college students.

Health & Safety:
There are a few incidents that have happened near, or on campus, but it's not a ridiculous number. Maybe an incident here and there.

The Teachers are very good at the university of central Florida, and the classes are really great everyone really tries to help you out.

I have never seen anything involving drugs and alcohol but I would say that it would really matter with the people you hang out with. It is a smoking free campus

There is a great grant for students who may may not be as financially endowed. In addition, there is a scholarship bulletin that lists scholarships that can be applied for. There are also merit-based scholarships that are only available when you are applying to the school that you are automatically considered for. However, if you do not receive it, then you can't even apply for it anymore which is a huge loss. Work study is also available if you apply very early as spaces are limited. My tip for getting aid is applying early and often before the money runs out.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
