Fun Environment – I enjoyed living in the dorms. There is always someone to hang out with and you are forced to meet new people. Unfortunately, majority of the dorms are reserved for freshman so it is difficult to get a spot after your first year.

Cheating is not acceptable under any circumstances

UCF gives all of its students the opportunity to park a vehicle on campus. If you don't have that, though, there are many other options. Bicycles, shuttles from all of the local apartment complexes, etc just to name a few. Our regional campuses offer free shuttles and pick up locations on campus so students do not have to drive there, which is so convenient!

Orlando is a huge city, so putting UCF here was a great choice. There are so many local theme parks, and also plenty to do in a five mile radius of the campus itself. Dining is also very attracting around UCF, there are so many restaurants to choose from with your friends! We also are home to the Orlando Magic, so NBA games are in short distance! There are more than 3 local malls that have every store you can think of! I love UCF!

I Love It Here – Even though its a big school, surprisingly there haunt been a problem in flow of information or communication. There are all kinds of events for all kinds of people. The community is extremely diverse. Its tuition fees is not ridiculously high. The location is superb and the community is very friendly. Anyone would find it extremely easy to fit in here and call this place home. If i could do it all over again, i definitely would!

Sports Is Big Here – UCF is very much into sports and athletic encouragement and support. The entire university contributes to the school's athletic spirit. Football is big here. Depending on the day there is a match, classes can even get cancelled. UCF students are called Knights (a term everyone here is familiar with), and our mascot is a knight too!

Because UCF is located is possibly the best place, weather conditions are excellent. Even during hurricane season, students are taken care of in an organized manner and the worst that has happened could be excessive rain.
Other than that, all season round, florida has excellent weather conditions. Even during summer, contrary to popular belief, it isnt that humid or hot. Most of the time people stay indoors so there isnt much encounter with the sun anyways.

All Kinds of People – UCF is a huge university with a diverse range of students including international students from all over the world. In my first semester i met people from at least 10 different countries. Furthermore, Americans vary from across the states.

Very Diverse! UCF is the second biggest university in America, so it is expected to see a lot of different races around campus. Students from all sorts of different countries attend UCF. The diveristy is even shown in the proffesors and staff. Being that UCF is in Orlando Fl, one might assume that it is mostly Hispanics that go here. This is not true at all. I think UCF as a pleasnt mix of race, economic background, religion, and sexual orintation. Everyone is also free to express themselves and not being afraid to show your true self is very encouraged at this school through things like support groups, clubs, and events.

So Much to Do, So Little Time – The money we pay as students is never put to waste. There is so much available on campus, I don't know why anyone would leave! The gym offers racquetball and basketball courts, weight and cardio machines, a lap pool, a rock wall, and various group class, so there's something for everyone no matter how you like to get fit. The student union hosts many events each month, and also has rooms for club meetings. There are many places to get a bite to eat there as well, plus the computer lab, the office of student involvement, and the ticket booth, where you can get discount tickets to theme parks around Orlando. Last but not least, there are two amazing places to study. The library has five floors which get quieter the higher you go. So, you can have a silent study period on your own on the fifth floor, then join your friends on the second for a noisier group session. Also there's the All-Knight Study, which is open 24/7 and has different study areas to suit individual needs.

Everybody Can Get Involved – Varsity sports are a huge part of the school, Intramural sports are as well, anybody can join an IM team and have a blast.
College Junior 2012-09-06T00:48:32Z
A Lot of Intern Opportunities – I am in the college of business at UCF and intern opportunities are everywhere, professors are very willing to help.
College Junior 2012-09-06T00:42:33Z
Available Help – The professors have office hours for students multiple times a week and are readily available to help 95% of the time.

During the day parking is almost always full, make sure to get there earlier than 5 min before.

Fills Quickly in the Mornings – Be sure to be on campus at least 30 min before class

Never Saw Drugs – I personally never saw drugs on campus or nearby. Everybody drinks tho

Sports Need to Be More Popularized – The University of Central Florida is not known as a dominant sport driven school, but sometimes it would be nice to receive some credibility and support from perhaps local cable providers or the shopping centers other than ESPN reviewing UCF to another well rounded high ranked team a few days before play.

Golden Knights Suck – Ok I'm not going to suck up for the university and say that the are great, because they aren't that good. But the students enjoy going to the games, they are a lot of fun to go to with your friends and have a nice time.
College Senior 2012-09-05T03:24:07Z
UCF is very strict on their academic policies such as plagiarism and cheating. They are not afraid to have a student expelled is one is caught performing dishonest acts. Dishonesty is one of the 5 big codes of the university
College Senior 2012-09-05T03:17:26Z
So Far So Good – For me it has been great just because I was able attend the UCF campus that is very accommodating to me and where I live and I am still able to go to the main campus to enjoy the campus life there.
College Senior 2012-09-05T03:11:18Z
It's Good Enough – UCF campus life is cool and nice. The student union makes sure they are up to date with activities happening on campus and they are always coming up with creative events for us the students to enjoy.
College Senior 2012-09-05T03:04:58Z
Best of the Best – The University of Central Florida is a great school. It is well equipped to satisfy a wide range of majors and students. The campus life is very cool and the environment is lovely.
College Junior 2012-09-05T00:37:26Z
What more can I say? It's hot, rainy, and the campus is huge so you have to do a lot of walking. The weather will absolutely impact your experience at UCF
College Junior 2012-09-05T00:34:22Z
There are a LOT of available computer areas on campus. Three of them are in the Student Union alone, and are elsewhere on campus as well.

Alcohol is VERY visible around school- you can definitely see bottles and cans laying about. A lot of students smoke, as well.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
