The aesthetics reflect the era in which buildings were constructed. I've seen better and worse.

Officers are around just enough. It's a pretty safe school.

Parking is conveniently located all over campus. This is because campus is shaped like a giant circle and there are tons of garages, pay per diem lots and dorm lots. Average walk time after parking at the appropriate lot for class is around 2 to 3 minutes. I have never had a problem finding a spot. Parking decals can be purchased for your car or motorcycle/scooter. Decals are very expensive, but so are parking tickets so its worth getting if you have your own transportation. On the bright side, motorcycle/scooter decals are half the price of cars.

Transportation is excellent, there are the local city buses, UCF buses, taxis, the list goes on. The UCF buses are free to ride with your student ID and make life so much easier since they make stops at nearly all the apartments around campus. If you have a car, the parking decals are expensive. Half price for scooters though!

The weather is great, but Orlando is fairly indecisive. During the winter, one day the low will be 78 degrees and the next is 32 degrees. The summer gets really sweaty hot, so don't wear light gray if you are someone who sweats a lot. The weather man likes to give a percentage about whether or not it will rain, just know that it is about a 90 percent chance that it will rain after 4 pm if its going to rain. Its probably a good idea to have a big closet or dresser to put all the different types of clothes you will need. Good luck with that if you live in a dorm!

The only nightlife close to campus had been recently demolished. The only nightlife around happens to be restaurants, occasional house parties or driving a half hour to downtown Orlando.

Most people seem they are there to get their degrees.

Other than the wide variety of degrees that are available the school also offers a unique campus life. You can do anything from shop in two of the bookstores to getting a pedicure at the on campus nail salon.

Over the last couple of years the parking situation has gotten a lot better with the addition of a new parking lot. Despite this addition there is still a need for more convenient parking lots. There is no need for a car on campus to get around.

The campus police are pretty fair. They are around when there are sporting events and not around too often to harass the students.

Athletics at the University of Central Florida I would say could be better. Being that it is a fairly new school, football does not have a large fan support compared to how many students go to the games. We need to have more school spirit and show that Knight pride! One thing that is UCF does have covered is our athletic facility. It contains state of the art equipment, trainers, and is home to all our diverse IM sports.

I have not had any issues with strictness at my school. They pretty much give students free range to do as they please since we are in college and are adults now. I get to do almost anything outside of illegal things and other very inappropriate things.

Great!!! They have a lot of security around the campus they even give you the opportunity to sign up for news alerts and everyday they send an e mail to in a way inform you about what took place that day. They take drinking very serious due to a previous death but that I love because it keeps students aware of the decisions we make. Security is good!

Well the school is located in Orlando Florida which has the best weather throughout the year! Of course the weather is a little bipolar at times but that is to be expected. More than normal it is ALWAYS sunny and bright. Like right now we are in the WINTER season and it just now got a little before 50 degrees and it is December. It is a bit bittersweet but I love it!
College Senior 2012-12-28T01:15:55Z
I love the variety of foods that the campus has to offer to the students. Everything from Chick fil A to Healthy choices! It gives students the opportunity to have a variety in their diet not just junk food all day every day. UCF is a huge campus and it has little cafes for you to grab a quick healthy snack bar to get you through your next set of classes. I love that they have a smoothie king on campus because I LOVE LOVE LOVE smoothies!!! That alone will be something I get on a daily basis to get me through at least two classes until I have the chance to get to a real meal. Only bad thing is that it sometimes can be a bit pricey having to spend money on food every day but hey that is a part of college life!

Great service and care but some specific tests are to expensive in comparison to a community clinic.

The school is located in sunny Florida so when it's not sunny then it is raining which is easier to deal with than snow!

It is well-laid out with its floor plan. It is easy to find the buildings and classes.

I am a hospitality management and event management major. The workload is perfect because I have enough time to work a job and they make the curriculum fun and enjoyable while teaching me everything i need to know in great detail.

Printing is good and free in some places but can get pretty busy during certain hours.

There is a very diverse population of students who interact constantly with each other in a safe and happy environment.

The computers labs aren't usually too crowded and even if they are you're able to check out laptops.

I see enough campus security and police to never question if I'm safe. The parking garages are adequately lit. You just get a general feeling of safety.

They've been pretty helpful will be hard to tell till the semester starts. SO far so good
College Senior 2012-12-27T19:03:30Z
The school as of late focus is about the peer to peer relationships. They want everyone to be more involved with eachother besides the books. Progress as a group the creed supports this.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
