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.

Guys & Girls:
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.

Health & Safety:
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.

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.

There are several guys at this school. You are bound to meet one in whatever it is you are interested in. You will definitely have something to look at and majority of them are super friendly!

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.

Take It or Leave It – I'm not into the Greek life myself, but they seem to do pretty well here without interfering with the lives of non-Greek students. They're enthusiastic without being obnoxious... usually. Their parties have a bit of that stereotypical raging reputation, but honestly, there are quite a few as huge non-Greek parties too.

It Could Be Worse – I think drinking is a lot more common. It's not really discouraged at all around here. Drugs are definitely out there; they're accessible, they're used, but to be honest, there are just other things you can do than do drugs. I've never been bored enough that I felt like I needed to DO something to have fun at UCF.

Strict but Lenient Somewhat – Just like any other campus, they are strict but lenient

The process to obtain financial aid was very easy. You simply need to register with FAFSA and UCF will then pull that information to determine how much financial aid you qualify for. You can check the progress online, which makes the whole process even easier and accept or decline any awards there, as well!

Overall They Succeed in Helping Students – For the most part, the professors are very helpful and strive for excellence. I have experienced a couple that did not share the common goal of making sure each student knew what was expected of them to achieve excellence. These professors were both taken for online classes, so therefore I definately recommend taking classes on campus or at a regional campus.

Campus is amazing! Huge library and student union. Both are open 24 hours a day when its finals time.

There are so many different types of degrees offered at the school. There is a counselor out there that can help you with any problems that you may have. Campus is modern with lots to do, its easy to navigate. There are also a ton of perks with being a students, like free concerts, games, tickets etc.

Students in General – In general people are very friendly and helpful. There are a ton of students on campus and all there for the same goal, which helps the situation a lot.

Rec and Wellness Center – This center is state of the art and they are constantly adding new things. There is a rock climbing wall, an Olympic sized pool, basketball/volleyball courts, racquetball courts, all the equipment you would need and many services.

Early Bird Gets the Worm – Computer labs are set up all around campus and rarely being used. If you go at an earlier time computers in the library are open as well and have great network speed and can all access printers nearby. Also if you have a wireless device there is wifi set up around campus with plenty of work stations in the library top floor.

Love the Instructors – I am a social work work major at the College of Health and Public Affairs at UCF. I have really enjoyed all of my Social Work classes so far and my instuctor (my professors as well as my advisors) have all been so great! They are so passionate about what they do and they want you to graduatewith that same passion. They made my transition from a small state college to a university so simple. Go Knights!

UCF has great transportation. There are buses that take you all around Orlando and there schedules run very well for class times!

Depends Depends Depends – As a part of the Burnett Honors College at UCF I am able to register for classes earlier than everyone else, which I didn't think was such a big deal until I started hearing my friend's stressful complaints about it.
The professors depend on your program; UCF is strong in science and engineering and a little weak in the humanities so the professors reflect that. As you get into upper level classes, the professors seem to have stronger accents (especially in math, phsyics, chemistry, etc.)

Very Flexible – I had a hard time choosing a major. I got to the point where I just wished I could pick a bunch of classes and make a degree out of it and now I'm kind of doing a more structured version of that. I'm an Interdisciplinary Studies major in Physical and Life Sciences with a minor in Cognitive Sciences.
As an interdisciplinary studies major you are required to take a cornerstone and capstone course (6 credits), pick two subject areas (15 credits each), and an interdisciplinary minor (credits depend on the minor; mine is 21 credits). The only catch is the two subject areas and the minor can't overlap.
If you count the credits for the major that's a 57 credit minimum, and if I take at least 12 credits a semester for all four years, that's 96 credits; meaning I have 39 credits of whatever classes I want.
It's probably the best major ever, but also the most stressful because you're making it up as you go.

Parking Is Horrible – I commute to school, and parking passes are around $100 for the year, but you have to leave early enough depending on the day in order to get a parking spot. Garage B is usually a nightmare to find parking because people are going to class AND the recreation and wellness center. I don't know about the public transportation. I know there's the knight lynx, which is free because part of your tuition pays for it. On campus you'll see a lot of skateboards, longboards, and bikes for people to travel between class; personally I just walk.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
