Fresh Air and Beautiful Vistas. The very first thing that attracted me about UCF was its beautiful open campus. It is far from a cramped and gridded campus that you might see at other universities. The circular design along with paths that are maintained with excellent greenery offer a welcoming feel and easy access to any facility on campus. Arguable the best hangout spot on campus is the Reflection Pond where students can lay back on the grass and relax in front of a magnificent fountain accenting the entrance of the campus library.

Excellent Opportunities for Career Development. I would like to describe the incredible resources available to students in the career development area. I was able to acquire an internship through the help of one of the UCF programs and there is always people to aid with resume building and networking. UCF is really concerned with developing students for the industries they're in, not just handing them diplomas.

Come Experience It Yourself! Students who have come and gone through UCF will all tell you the same thing, you will never forget your time spent here. You will make several friends that you will hold on to for life and gain experiences that will change you forever, good or bad.

Advisers Truly Make Sure You're on the Right Path – I am a nursing major and the advisors that I have been associated with love their jobs and will do anything to make sure you are continuously on the correct path and make sure you remain there. They also offer several resources for internships and future jobs.

Plenty of Differences and Plenty of Love. From what I have seen on campus I have come to the conclusion that UCF is a very diversified campus in many areas than just ethnicity and race; it is diverse in nearly every way. There are always information tables set up for groups on campus that welcome students to learn more about political groups, religious culture, different music and art styles, and so much more. The response to this atmosphere is generally very accepting and respectful from every party.

A Cutting Edge School – UCF loves to stay on top of technology and having the best facilities for their students. I can admit that maybe we lack the school spirit the older schools in the area do such as FSU, UF, and UM but we are in the top five in the country as far as student population go. Our student body is really active in causes ranging from political and social to environmental and health. I love the feeling I get walking around the campus it's beautiful and the people know how to have fun. Maybe we don't have the best sports team but game days are still awesome. The student housing in the area is great lots of swimming pools and recreational and wellness facilities.

Shuttles Are Always Late – The University has shuttles to all the student apartment complexes but they are never on time and I often wait 30+ minutes for them.

Some Rain – Rains a lot during summer and late spring but usually perfect weather.

The Scene Is Currently Undergoing Changes. The popular places that existed right across the street from campus ("Fubar", The Library, The Dungeon, Deko, Underground Bluz) are either being shut down or relocated due to the plaza being turned into a student housing development. If you go a couple miles down University Blvd, you can find a Buffalo Wild Wings, World of Beer, Tilted Kilt but nothing really like a dance club, just mostly bars. There are still plenty of good parties to attend though.

Health & Safety:
A Safe Area. I've been attending UCF since '05 till the present ('12) and Ive never felt unsafe while walking around on campus, even after night classes that ended at 9 or after basketball games... There are plenty of emergency posts where all you have to do is hit a button if any situation does arise.. There isn't a lot of security guards around but I really can not think of any incidents on campus that would warrant an increase of their presence. They do provide numbers for security escorts and safe rides if you feel the need for one.

UCF is highly strict when it comes to academic honesty as well as drinking and drug use. We're all human, so of-course someone is going to do it but you most certainly do NOT want to get caught. I've had roommates who got busted with drinking (and noise making) and they nearly lost their housing due to it. I've also known people who got caught cheating on tests in class and they were definitely punished. Not only do you have to meet with the professor and talk about why you did it, you get a 0 for the test and have to take a class on academic honesty. Then you also have to submit a paper about it and how you learned from the class and etc...

It's UCF. There's a lot of pride in this school so the facilities are generally pretty awesome and clean. Just minor things could be a bit more tidy every now and then but this is a HUGE school.

Security Is on Point and the Health Center Is Impressive. The security is very tight at UCF, never many incidents. Also the Health center gives a sense of security as I know if I become ill or injured, there is an on-campus facility for treatment.

A Multi-Cultural Fashion Parade! There are so many cultures who attend UCF. It is always interesting to see the different looks and styles each student represents. Everyone really takes pride in their personal style. A lot of students represent the university by wearing official UCF gear.

I Am an Adult Student, I Do Not Participate. I am a 32 year old student with a family and life outside of campus so I can't say.

A Type of Girl for Anyone – If your into women UCF is the place to go. The girls there are pretty hot and there are a lot of them too. It's a big melting pot of a school because the student body is so large so there is a type of girl for pretty much anyone.

Its florida! The weather is always great! but you do have to deal with humidity and the occasional hurricane.

I love my field of study and I feel like the professors and staff in the Anthropology dept are helpful. My only qualm with the program is that the dept doesnt disperse a lot of the activities of the dept as well as they could. I try to stay active within the office but still seem to miss some of the activities because I didnt hear about them.

Overall I would say that most students are dedicated to their education. Especially in my major (Communication Sciences and Disorders) as the Graduate program is extremely competitive. Those students who do partake in extracurricular drug and alcohol use are not making it obvious to those around and it doers not seem to be or a priority. I am really impressed with the focus of the students at UCF.

If you are interested in Greek life there are plenty of sororities and fraternities to choose from! Plus all of their housing is really nice and so close to campus. They always have fun events and parties going on. But what I really like is that they don't dominate the school. You can go to their parties with out worrying about being ostracized. Being apart of Greek life isn't seen as positive or negative, it's just a fun option but definitely not a requirement!

What More Could You Want? The social scene is amazing at UCF! There's always new activities and clubs you can join to meet people. And there's a huge variety of different cultures, religions, and races. Personally for the nursing program, we have these incredible simulation dolls that are as close to human as possible. They are wonderful for giving you real life experiences in nursing in a safe way. I'm so glad that we get to use these to practice our skills.

Always Something to Do! The gym is wonderful with all the greatest equipment and workout classes. The student union has great food, drinks, and atmosphere! I love studying under all the shady trees or just relaxing before class. The whole style of the campus is very modern. There are tons of organizations and clubs you can join to reach out and meet new people! You will never be bored at UCF!

There's Always Something to Do in Orlando! Pick anything that you like to do and Orlando has it! There's tons of college bars/clubs minutes away such as library! Or you can always go downtown where there's a variety of places to go out. Plus there is city walk at universal with restaurants, clubs, bars, shopping, and a movie theater. Waterford shopping center is right down the road from campus with every store you could need. Or drive 20 minutes to two different outlet malls with a variety of stores. UCF gym also offers the greatest workout equipment and classes to attend. The possibilities are endless!

There are so many places located around campus, since we are in such a big city. Several of them you could get to without a vehicle if necessary.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
