Health & Safety:
UCF has a lot of safety signs and buttons set up all around campus.

I have received a decent amount of financial adid from UCF that has helped supplement my bright future and Pell Grant.

The school is the largest school in the country and has many different races and religions.

I am not apart of Greek life. I am unsure how to answer this. I work with a lot of girls that love it and life for their greek life. A great way to make life long friends.

Make sure you do your fasfa and scholarships on time!

There's tons of stuff to do around the Universal side of town. City walk, bars, close to downtown and all the parks. Not sure how nightlife is around campus.

There are multiple dining hall located around campus for those with a meal plan. I personally never got one of those, so I'm not sure how the food is. There are different dinning options in the Student Union including: Subway, Sbarro, BK Whopper Bar, Cafe Corner, Asian Chao, Quadoba, and Wackadoo's. There are also other dinning places spread through campus like Chik-fil-a, Einstein Bagel Co., and a bunch by the arena and stadium!

I have applied for FASFA every year, but do not get any financial aid through them since my parents make enough money. Upon receiving my acceptance letter to UCF I was granted the Pegasus Scholarship, which means that I get $1,000 at the beginning of every semester (except Summer semesters since they are not required). I have never had trouble speaking to the financial aid officers, but would recommend going to see them in person.

We are in Orlando, so there is absolutely everything you could possibly want. There's Downtown Disney, CityWalk, and Downtown Orlando. Underage students can go hang out in Citywalk although cant get into the clubs and the same goes for Downtown Disney.

The off campus affiliated campus is an absolute rip off. They're good enough to provide a roof over your head, but the rent they charge is beyond ridiculous. You're better off getting a traditional apartment with roommates, or even better, look for houses to rent with friends or roommates.

To me there were very few traditions at UCF, and our football team isn't exactly something to get excited about and some of the buildings are very old. However, our gym is AMAZING, I wish it was open 24/7 though.

The anthropology department is amazing. It is really the only department I can speak to though.

Guys & Girls:
You find a lot of the "I'm only here because mommy and daddy threatened to cut me off if I didn't go to college" type here. There is a distinct air of rich and spoiled surrounding a lot of the students at UCF- do not get me wrong, I made some really good friends that are really good people, but they are largely few and far in between. Most of the people I met were lazy and shallow, good for a one stand, not so good for any sort f meaningful friendship or relationship.

It was super easy and most of it is done online, which makes it very accessible.

sometimes the weather can be pretty bipolar in this area, but as long as you carry around a small umbrella with you, you are normally good to go.
College Sophomore 2012-11-07T20:55:19Z
There are so many apartment complexs around UCF. Any entrance you go out of you will see at least three different ones. They are usually extremely nice and are a lot cheaper than on campus housing.
College Sophomore 2012-11-07T20:35:59Z
It is very involved on campus but depending which one you join will depend on the type of reputation you get. Not everyone is in a frat or sorority, but joining one will show you an insight to different things on and off campus.

Its huge. you can get lost easily, but it has so many things

There are so many people enrolled at ucf and many party more than they should
College Junior 2012-11-06T20:47:16Z
An average grade was given because even though underage drinking is not allowed, young adults our age are going to find a way to get alcohol regardless of the set rules. I believe this is the norm for any school.
Recent Alumnus 2012-11-06T19:48:33Z
Greek Life is getting bigger and bigger at UCF however it is not a dominating force. They do promote a lot of community events and are big partiers but it is not a big deal if you are not involved in one. I think it offers a great way to get involved in UCF and to make friends in a big school but your social life won't suck if you arent in one.

UCF computers are very up to date and the speed and reliability is excellent. Printing on campus is fairly user friendly and if you are confused there is always someone there to show you. You can even rent out a laptop from the library if you cannot find an open computer. I personally like having my own computer but there is not a HUGE need for one if you cannot afford it.

The drug scene is not huge, and if it is then it is not noticable. There are students who are big on pot and promote the use of it, but I would say that drinking is the more popular activity.
College Junior 2012-11-06T19:02:58Z
Especially at tailgating before games, campus police are very strict about underage drinking and drugs. Its pretty serious if you get caught, so if you are someone who is willing to take that risk, at least be responsible about it. Don't advertise drinking or drugs. You'll get busted. RA's can be pretty strict about calling the cops.

I'm in the nursing program, and the process was fairly easy. I applied once I finished all of my prerequisites and was accepted. I had to take an entrance exam that helped my application reviewers determine if I was a good candidate for the program based on my scores. With any major, look into what UCF specifically wants you to do. A lot of majors require you to apply and be accepted, so find out what prerequisites you will need.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
