Get to Know Your Professors – The professors at UCF are here to help you. They always have office hours, and answer e-mails immediatly. They want to build a relationship with you, and I would encourage getting to know them, it will help you in class. The classes at UCF can be very large, my history class has 250 kids in it, but the teacher is awesome, and after attending office hours, I know him on a personal basis, and am not one out of 250.

Guys & Girls:
Very Fun and Energetic – The guys and girls on campus are very fun and energetic, and many times you can see people riding around on campus with longboards, skateboards, and biking. There is even this kid that gets around on a unicycle. It is a fun campus overall, and the people here are great.

Nothing Like Florida Heat! Of course being in Central Florida, the weather at UCF is generally very hot. It does rain as well but it usually does not last very long. Shorts and tank tops are a favorite here!

UCF, located in Orlando, has very active nightlife. Every night, even on weekdays, clubs are going on every night for people from all around to come to. On the weekends, there are sometimes events on campus that are great social gathering sites as well.

There is a Lead Scholars program that is very popular at UCF, as well as the Burnett Honors College. Both look awesome on resumes for future job opportunities. Also there is the Career Services and Experiental Learning center that can easily give you job shadowing and internship openings, at UCF they really help you out, and make you feel like you are not just another "number".

UCF has all of the facilities that you would ever need. Doctors offices, a brand new gym, huge 5 story library with study rooms and computers, the activities are endless. The student union is loaded with every different type of food you could imagine. Its such a large campus that they offer just about everything you would ever need right on campus.

The dorms at UCF are awesome because you have so many choices. I am currently living in the Towers, which is an appartment style on campus dorm. I have my own room, share a bathroom with one other girl and I love it. Hercules, and Nike are the typical freshman dorms, but compared to the other colleges i have visited they were by far my favorite. There are so many off campus UCF affiliated housing options, and thats part of the reason I chose this school, because I was not required to live anywhere I got to chose myself.

It is alright but they can get very crowded certain nights
College Sophomore 2012-07-17T02:22:33Z
limited spaces and parking services ticket for no reason often
College Sophomore 2012-07-17T02:14:42Z
clubs and bars get really over crowded and it becomes less fun

Great Interaction – There is ALWAYS an event going on or activities. BBQ's, dj's, games, and study groups("Kram for Exam" great event that helps the students for finals). You usually make great memories with your classmates at these events, including when they offer a photo booth to take a picture as a souvenir. There are special speeches throughout the semesters also. Usually the speaker is a very informative person for what ever subject they are discussing and also motivates students.

Guys & Girls:
A Mix of Life – Their looks are widely mixed. Everything from skaters, artsy, preppy, surfer and nerdy appearances. There are many people that dress nice and trendy. Never sloppy looking. Socially it seems there aren't clicks in the university but there are in sororities. Relationship wise I don't see a lot at the university. Everyone just wants to enjoy their youth and be independent.

Fair Punishment – The non-smoking rule isn't enforced enough. I see students depositing cigarettes on the Rosen College campus frequently. Especially the foreign exchange students living at the Rosen housing.
i love florida weather, and as long has you have an umbrella handy, you are fine, you can bounce from building to building. i only remember classes being canceled once for a hurricane in the 6 years i have been here. the campus is pretty so its nice to hang outside.

Nothing Close – there is nothing close by except a few nasty college bars/clubs. you have to go down town or winter park. otherwise you have to find house parties.
College Senior 2012-07-16T08:07:09Z
Shuttles Everywhere – There are UCF shuttles that run everywhere around campus and also run to many of the apartment complexes outside the campus. Shuttles go to apartments every 15 minutes and are always on time and are free to students. Very good resource if you do not want to drive and look for a parking space around campus.

Food Establishments Everywhere – Around the UCF area there are tons of great food places to eat at. Theres everything from fast food to gourmet within minutes of the campus. Over atleast 100 places to eat withing 10 minutes of the area. A Bahama Breeze just opened up about 2 miles from the campus, which has great upscale food for a fairly low price.
College Senior 2012-07-16T07:57:13Z
Great Food – There are so many places to eat around the campus. Many of the dining halls are all you can eat and always have something for every persons appetite. Not only are there dining halls, but many chaion restaurants that students can eat at throughout the day and night.

Top Notch Fitness and Recreation – The University of Central Florida offers a state of the art Recreational center (complete with exercise equipment, basketball courts, an indoor track, a rock climbing wall -- even a Subway restaurant). Right outside the Rec center is a large pool, tennis courts, outdoor basketball courts, beach volleyball courts (with sand), and synthetic turf fields (for soccer, football, lacrosse, etc.) UCF also offers a high/low ropes challenge course and one can rent out kayaks for use on Lake Claire. Finding ways to stay in shape will not be a problem at the University of Central Florida.

Labs & New Technology – There are plenty labs around campus. Some have cool charging stations for laptops and others may have lounges and cafes. The labs offer the large screen experience from Mac's and the PC's are awesome too.

The students at UCF all come from diverse cultures, making your options virtually endless. There are so many people (Hint: it's the 2nd largest college in the nation) that there is someone for everyone.

Rain vs. Shine. Somedays it's perfect beach weather, and other days it looks like a hurricane is passing through town.
