Few Limits – Being a 19 year old college student can mean that nightlife is pretty limited. But not in Orlando. Many of the clubs in the downtown area cater to 18+ though the bars scene is a bit more limited. Around the UCF area, there are plenty of student friendly places to go with even fewer restrictions.

Strict but Fair – Underage drinking, illicit drug use, and breaking of the honor code are pretty much not tolerated, but that's to be expected from all universities. The first two will get you kicked out of student housing in a heartbeat but not necessarily expelled from the university. Breaking of the honor code results in expulsion and a mark on your transcripts.

I Love It – This University is amazing. From the beautiful campuses to the diversity of the student body, it's never a dull moment at UCF. Being the second most-populated university in the country has huge advantages. There are a multitude of activities and groups to get involved in. I have met some of the most fantastic people of my life on campus. Yes, the classes can get pretty big, but you're never ignored as an individual.

Mechanical Engineering – Mechanical engineering is a great degree here! There are numerous clubs to join. Also, with UCF being the second largest university in the US, it's hard to get into a small class. engineering classes are not crowded and offered great one-to-one instruction.

Knowledgeable but Choppy – Bureaucracy runs rampant in the financial aid office. Every paper needs another paper signed in another office and so forth. It's difficult to get anything done in just one day. However, the financial aid staff is incredibly knowledgeable and do their best to move things along quickly and efficiently.

Pretty Laid Back – Ucf Is a pretty laid back school. We are not a dry campus and there is a huge tailgating event on campus during every football game. However, UCF does have a police station on campus and there is usually an officer around every corner. Academically, it's to be expected. Don't cheat.

Endless Choices – There are countless dining choices around the UCF campus. Just across the street are at least a dozen restaurants and as you travel down University Dr, you will find a restaurant to appeal to any craving.

Future Actuary – I am Statistics Major and I am also minoring in Actuarial Science. I have not participated in any internships yet, but I plan on it. I'd like to find an internship with a major insurance company. I encourage anyone seeking a career as an actuary to do the same as it would immensely help your advancement if you later seek employment with that same company.

Everyone Is Friendly and Helpful! I feel like it is easy to get to know people in your class. Everyone is in the same position so it's nice to break the ice and develop relationships with people in your class.

Shuttle Campus Bus – Campus buses are great to get around the immediate local areas. Anything further than that is a bit inconvenient. You have to hop on different buses to go to different directions for your location.

Apartments Vary – It seems that some complexes are more expensive when trying to get an apartment close to the school. A few that rent rooms and include utilities are a great price but lack the privacy.

Very Satisfied Freshman – The dorms are all fantastic. As a freshman you can live almost anywhere on campus with the exception of a few places, such as the Towers. For the Fall, I'm living in Lake Claire which is a beautiful community with apartment style dorms. For the Summer I was assigned to live in Hercules which is fairly new, very clean with cleaning service coming every Monday to clean the bathroom and clean the floors and vanities. You do have to live with roommates/suitemates there but nowhere on campus is there more than 2 people to a room. All living communities have their pros and cons, but they're all a beautiful place to live.

Greatest Place Ever. Everyone is going to say that their school is the best but I honestly deep in my heart believe it is. The minute I stepped onto campus I absolutely adored the place. If you want to party you can party, if you want to take academics seriously you can do that too. Also the diverse population is really what drew me in. Everyone and anyone is accepted here no matter what color, size, shape or anything else.

I would haveto give Ucf an A on this one. You get to print a lot more papers then you will need for free. I would say you need a personal computer if you are one of those people (Like me) who are always surfing the web just browsing for information and socializing!
College Sophomore 2012-07-30T19:07:01Z
Great (For Me) – If you're anything like me you can eat fast food every single day. Ucf has an Asian Chao, I'm not sure how popular that is around other parts of Florida but when I'm from it's huge. Ucf alo has a Chick' Fil a which is just icing on the cake. There are plenty of pizza places that deliver late at night. Overall in my opinio Ucf gets an A+!

Awesome Place to Live and Study – Clean campus, opportunities to thrive, plenty of clubs to join and take part in. All faculty and staff members are helpful and willing to do everything possible to give off a comfortable environment that will allow students to take part in campus activities. Very easy to find the information you need. When help is required, responses are prompt and to the point so all problems are solved as quickly and thoroughly as possible. Buildings are clean and up to date. Plenty of places to eat. The campus is large which can be trying, but the scenery makes the trip from your room to class worth the walk. Students are just as passionate about their school and are very friendly and courteous toward their peers.

I can't ask for another student body than the one at UCF. You meet someone new everyday and each has their own stories, cultures, friends, philosophies and enjoyments.

So far no tragedy has befallen me on UCF campus and for the most part the UCF Police keeps the student and faculty bodies in check.

I liked my dorm and i liked my boyfriend's dorm, good thing about them is that theyre all fairly new which i like!

Health & Safety:
Pretty Good – I feel safe during the day and even at night sometimes. Just because its a big city and from watching all those crime shows freaks me out a little when Im walking across campus on my own at night, but its pretty secluded which makes me feel safer in a big city.

Pretty Good – People like to smoke hookah, thats not really a drug but still.

You're in Orlando! Everywhere you go to eat can be good, there are great places around UCF to eat, plus Disney and Universal.

The Wweather is beautiful. Especially by the retention pond. The background nioses and the mist of water barely hitting your face with that nice breeze is quite enjoyable.

Parking is easy if you have semi early classes. The later your classes the harder it will be to find a spot. Also, make sure you have a decal or you will get fined for not having a decal and parking in a permit spot.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
