There are so many sports at UCF. If there is not a team established, it is also very easy to create a team. The football team is very successful. There are varsity sports and junior varsity sports to choose from.

The most common transportation at UCF is the bicycle. Many people commute, however the campus is very large and if you are staying on campus, chances are the walk to your classes will be very long. If you stay off campus, may apartment homes offer a shuttle bus to campus which is very convenient.

UCF offers a variety of classes that are fantastic. The general education program, however, can be challenging. If it is a class you do not like along with a professor you do not care for the class can be very challenging. The most helpful thing to seek out is some of the resources offered at the university such as tutoring, this can be a life saver.

I am in the college of Education and I enjoy it very much. The teachers are passionate about what they teach which gets passed down to the students. I am an Elementary Education major and I love all of my classes, and most of all I love working with children through the University.

They did just close a big plaza where there was a lot of partying, but they are opening new ones. And there's downtown always. But it's still pretty good.
College Junior 2012-10-09T17:46:11Z
There are a lot of options, and they have new ones every day. Luxurious to not so much, expensive to cheap, there are many options.
College Junior 2012-10-09T17:45:11Z
There are a lot of opportunities, you just have to look, but they are everywhere
College Junior 2012-10-09T17:44:23Z
Registration is kind of tough, there are many students, teachers are pretty tough, but that's college.

I chose a major that offers quite a bit of uncertainty in the job market, but sociology was of great interest to me so I went for it anyway. I know that I can always fall back on teaching or counseling if I am unable to find a job that is more in line with my expectations.
The one thing that is mildly frustrating is that the core classes are only offered during fall and spring terms (one term, not both) and that the classes are quite limited as far as how many and what time.
Outside of that, I have many options for non-core classes and am thoroughly enjoying the diversity of courses I can take.

There are many great options for undergraduate majors as well as an impressive list of graduate majors.

Varsity sports at UCF is very important to the students. We might not be ranked right now but we sure do have pride in our team. The football games are full of school spirit. I really am sad when I have to miss a game due to work. I will always support my UCF Knights!

Our academics are pretty good. Though, I have had one or two not so great professors. I've learned that many of our professors like to just read their power points and not really teach.

Florida weather is definitely not the best, especially in the fall. It rains pretty much every day starting in the spring until the winter. It can be really stressful when you have to walk around such a large campus. Definitely invest in an umbrella and rainboots, they are very popular!

Guys & Girls:
Everyone is very fun and willing to meet new people. Everyone is constantly venturing out to parties, clubs, and becoming more involved which is a nice thing to see as a change from high school.
College Sophomore 2012-10-08T22:07:32Z
Very good school, encourage student involvement and really make it apparent to show how students lives of the weekends can venture past drinking and smoking.

My forms were lost a few times when the disbursements were made, but the office was pretty friendly in helping me. I would recommend checking emails and the website constantly because it was difficult to figure out when I needed to pay for everything.

Health & Safety:
UCF is an amazing school and I have never felt unsafe or uncomfortable there even late at night, I know that if I ever need help or I feel uncomfortable walking to my car, help is always nearby.

The only issue I had was when it was pouring down rain and I had to walk across campus to my next class, I was soaked but my laptop got wet so that upset me.
College Junior 2012-10-08T16:56:22Z
There are multiple places to study, they have an amazing gym, and have various places to eat.
College Junior 2012-10-08T16:54:31Z
There is a good amount of all races, althought cacuasians are the most prevelent
College Junior 2012-10-08T16:46:11Z
It has ALOT of students. So there is always something to do.
College Junior 2012-10-08T16:02:34Z
Police pretty strict on many things including small stuff
College Junior 2012-10-08T15:46:03Z
Some good, some bad, for the most part, the old ones are pretty good, put have a strange smell to them
College Senior 2012-10-07T23:39:55Z
I dont break the law in any way so Im not sure if they are stict or not. If they are strict on one thing its academics, if a teacher catches you cheating you will have severe consequences which is to be expected. They also expect their students to keep a 2.5gpa. I have never received any citations for parking for parking on the yellow lines or anything. There are a good amount of police that drive around the streets but thats a good security feature.

The Off-Campus dining options are not very good as UCF is right on Alafaya Trail and there Is not much to be seen on that road. If you want to find a nice resturant you will have to find your way downtown and in the heart of Orlando. I would recommend just staying on campus to eat if a fast meal needs to be had.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
