An Amazing College Life – The Nightlife at the University of Central Florida is amazing, since local bars and clubs are across the street and transportation is not an issue, entrance is usually 18+ so there is not much to worry about, and for those that are 21+ drinks at the bars around campus the are best, very cheap.

Internships and Oportunities – The chances of getting an internship in almost any field is huge at UCF, that is because we are a very large campus and because of the reputation we have built in the past years, companies in the area are looking specifically for UCF students. the pay rate depends on the field and the position. Having an internship requires a lot of commitment and responsibility because it is very hard to handle classes while working. I myself work as a Student assistant on Campus and even that takes time and dedication from me.

There Are a Lot of Different Food Choices on Campus. I have attended 2 other large colleges and UCF by far has the best options for dining on campus. Not only are there a lot of places on campus, but there are a lot of place right around campus as well.

Some Sororities/Frats Are Good, Some Are Bad – Greek life isn't huge at UCF but it's definitely there. There are common stereotypes for every sorority and fraternity. Some are well rounded, some are only interested in partying etc. But theres something for every type of person.

I am getting ready to start my second semester at UCF and from what I've seen diversity doesn't seem to be a problem. Due to the large volume on students that attend there are a lot of different races and people of different ethnic backgrounds.

Yummy, but Not Healthy – The food at the dining halls is very yummy. Typical college food. The only problem is, the healthy options are lacking. If you ate there everyday, you would definitely gain the freshman 15 very quickly!

Guys & Girls:
Nothing Special – Alot of the guys here are the type I consider to be "surfer boys". Typical Florida boys. Many of them skateboard, have long hair, belong to a frat, etc. There are the exceptional few that break this stereotype but not many.

Pretty Good So Far – I've been lucky to have some really passionate professors. Of course there are those who are just teaching because its a job. Socializing isn't a must. I'm getting by pretty well as a loner. My biggest complaint is overcrowding.

Good Place for an Engineering Student – UCF is in a good location for Engineering students. A lot of tech corporation are in the area and support UCF.

I've had a lot of professors who are very passionate about what they teach. They make themselves easily available for help. I would give an A if it were not for the overcrowding. Such large classes (1,600 at times) makes the student/professor relationship less intimate.

More Than Adequate – I can always get a computer but I have never needed them during peak times like at finals. The computers have always had the most up to date software and had appropriate internet access. Speed was never a problem and I if I need to print something I have always been able to use the printer in the SGA office.

Never a Problem for Me – I have received quite a bit of financial aid and have never had any problems. The times I had to submit verification paperwork it was inconvenient but not complicated. Financial Aid was always there to answer my questions and help me out. I attend at a regional campus and only once had to go to Orlando to submit paperwork.

Everything around campus is fairly new and has a lot of character. The different places on campus provide students with lots of opportunities and everyone is always very nice and helpful. There seems to never be a dull moment on campus as there are always things going on!

Nice Clean Rooms but a Little Crowded – The rooms are nice and clean. They have a housekeeping service that comes in once a week that cleans your floors and bathroom. It tends to get a little crowded if your living with another person in the same room, and the walls are a little paper thin.Downside to living on campus is that there is very limited housing for non freshmen students.

A Nice Place – They have a lot of resources available for you at this school. The professors are mostly made up of brilliant people, and you'll find tons of help with studying all around the campus. Try not to let your need to party affect your school work though, and introduce your self to new people all the time it's easy to get lost in the crowd with this school.

If you take early morning or late night classes your good but anything after 10 and before 4 good luck on parking

Transfer Issues – Coming into the school with a lot of credits tends to be at your disadvantage because it counts against you especially if depend on financial aid. So at this moment im paying out of pocket to get by and work fulltime just to finish school all because i took a few extra NEEDED classes

Some Care and Some Don't – Some professors are accessible and care about facilitating learning and helping with your career and some simply care about their egos and less about the students. The career service could do a better job. The facilities are outdated and staff is out of touch. As for psychology, the advisors I have experience with have given information contrary to the current catalog, have not follow up on questions, and are not easily accessible by phone. No response by email either. They are busy and from the job website...they need more of them and need to pay them better. We get emails all the time but they have little substance. As for the psychology and legal studies program, if you read the requirements yourself and know what expected, the online registration is pretty smooth. Everything is there and easy to navigate. Financial aid is a whole other story.

Downtown is great but clubs are far so stay close to campus and avoid DUI's or get a DD. UCF police are always on the prowl so take care and don'y get caught underage drinking or you could get referred to the student conduct committee.

Room for Improvement – The campus is great but there is no parking. The library is old and outdated. Constructing is perpetual. My husband started in 2001 and finished 2 BA's in 03 (construction), an MA in 06 (Construction). We've gone games (construction). The school keeps growing even though there is no money, tuition is being raised at 13 to % per academic year, scholarships are being reduced, grants are gone, and still they build. Started in 2011 and get emails everyday about this area closed this lot, that building, construction construction. It's probably the single worst part of UCF (parking situation: 49,000 plus students + 18, 000 of spaces does not equal a good time.)
The programs they have are good and professors, for the most part are dedicated. The admin process is sketchy. Remember your in college so don't rely on what you are told UNLESS you see it in writing. Think online is the way to go even though they charge you and extra $300 or so to sit at home.

most greeks keep to themselves and are known to be pretty snobby, though some are nice.

Lots to Do – Beaches are nearby. Walt Disney and Universal studios.

Many School Activities – There are a countless amount of school-funded free activities. Such as movie nights, concert nights, comedy nights, and much much more. Outside of campus there are some clubs lots of shopping malls and great food locations. A little further out there are tons of fun theme parks that will give you UCF discounts.

Florida Is Just Low Quality – My family is from Pittsburgh, and looking at the majors in a northern state with more developed education in comparison UCF majors are lacking

Guys & Girls:
What a Joke – How can you even consider this as being important? this is a joke. the very idea that you have these types of questions. You go to school to get skills to survive, not have sex with men and woman, this is a terrible question.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
