The weather is usually pretty nice but in Florida it rains a lot. The rain makes me sleepy and lazy to the point where I don't want to do any work or go to class.

Great Programs – UCF has top ranked engineering and counseling programs. The Counselor Education program is the #12 program in the country. The Hospitality College is also widely known and acclaimed.

I am working on my Master's in Marriage and Family Therapy. The program is excellent. The faculty is always available for consultation and guidance; Doctoral students are great role models; and your peers are ambitious.

Guys & Girls:
People are very concerned about fitness at UCF, so they are often working out. The Rec Center is always packed full of vibrant young college guy sand girls looking to maintain their figure and look their best.

The on campus housing options are good but only if you are really sure you want to live on campus. It is very convenient to live close to everything but only freshman really live on campus and not everyone is mature so you would just have to deal with that part. The dorms and small and crowded, but they are furnished nicely and whenever you need anything maintenance is always there to help,

I think the diversity is vast on campus. There are hundreds of clubs for every group you could possibly think of and for people with all kinds of different interests and hobbies.
College Senior 2013-01-15T16:45:51Z
We are good in all of our divisions but we are obviously not in the highest ranked divisions either.

Most of the teams are pretty good but don't always get the amount of student support that they deserve.

Orlando has lots to offer. Many different scenes not to far away. Campus life is great.

Availability and Speed – The computers are available at several locations and are very easy to locate and acccess. Computers also have relatively good speed. If you have your own computer, it is a plus, but if you don't, it is very easy to find one to use.

There are many options and varieties of ethnicity food that range from fast food to sit-down dinning. They're all within 10 minutes or less from UCF, and their are different options from buffets, vegan, and student restaurants, etc. as well.

Greek life is moderately sized for a campus as large as UCF but it definitely does not take over the social scene. There is no major push to have everyone in a frat or sorority, even during rush weeks in the fall and spring. You are also not judged for being involved or choosing not to be involved. This is a large enough school where there is a group for everybody!
College Sophomore 2013-01-14T03:41:30Z
Because UCF is still pretty new (50 years old) we are still trying to establish ourselves in the world of sports. As far as football for this past season, we were 10-4 and are ranked 16th in the nation with the most alumni on active NFL playoff rosters! I think those are pretty good stats!

The dorms at UCF are not the best, but they are pretty good compared to those I have see at other colleges. The newest ones are Nike/Hercules/Neptune (opening Fall 2013). But I would say the most social dorms are Libra and Apollo if you are looking for an environment where everyone hangs out with each other, doing frequent movie/video game nights or just run around outside tossing a frisbee at midnight! People who live in those dorms say that where they lack in "nice-ness" they make up for in the bonding that goes on. And, by the way, these are all freshmen dorms.

Health & Safety:
UCF police is really good at it's job. They offer SEPS which is something that you can call and will drive you to your car if it's dark and you feel unsafe walking. We also have a service where you can register your stuff (like electronics) for free with the police department so if it ever gets stolen, they can find it right away.
College Sophomore 2013-01-12T23:30:22Z
The only thing UCF is really strict on is Academic Integrity, everything else seems to be pretty lenient. Just do your own work and don't cheat and you'll be fine. The cops are pretty cool about the drinking as well, just be responsible. Oh, but watch where you park because you WILL get a ticket, but don't worry tooo much because they're easy to dispute.
College Sophomore 2013-01-12T23:28:07Z
It's pretty hot on some days, but most days its very nice weather. Occasional rain makes walking across our wide open campus sometimes annoying but other than that it's good. It can get cold here as well but if you're from any where outside of florida, it will probably feel good.
College Sophomore 2013-01-12T23:26:42Z
I have not had one professor who wasn't helpful and great at their job. The offer many classes and have many openings. The education program, specifically, is very welly done and is a great experience, especially if you get the opportunity to be apart of STEP.
College Sophomore 2013-01-12T23:23:41Z
Greek Life is prominent on our campus but you don't feel forced to join. They're very nice people and are very helpful if thats what interests you. If you want to be active on campus and make friends quickly, its the way to go. Everyone I know in a sorority has always benefited from it.

It is easy enough to get into the Accounting major, once you give it a little work. You have to finish your general education classes and a list of classes to be admitted to the College of Business Administration and from there you are welcome to any of the Business majors.
College Sophomore 2013-01-12T19:50:44Z
I'm in the College of Business Administration and I've been very happy with it so far. As an Accounting major, I have experienced many professors who are willing to help students outside of class time. The class will be big in the beginning but quickly narrow down once you are past the general classes.

In Florida it is always sunny! It's nice to hang out by the pool and also there are lots of things to do outside on campus. The warm weather is great for kayaking or paddle boarding on Lake Claire, and beach volleyball on the sand courts. It does rain however in the Spring, but usually for a few days and then it's back to sunshine!
College Sophomore 2013-01-11T04:42:01Z
Lots of kids do it, but you don't always see it

There is tons of stuff to do around UCF and a lot of it you don't have to be 21 years old. There are multiple bars, clubs, and sports bars that everyone can go hang out and have fun at. UCF offers bus transportation and on certain nights the party bus will take you downtown and pick you up so you can go to the bars down there as well.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
