After School Pleasures – Nightlife in Orlando is awesome because everyone aims for a good time in a college town. There are a few clubs located right across the street from campus and there are special buses that take students downtown as well. This transportation method allows for bulks of people to get together and have a safe, fun time without driving responsibilities. Additionally, you can be 18 and still enjoy a night in the town! Most places are 18 years and older and have super deals for cheap fun

Tasty and Timely – Campus Dining Services provide a variety of restaurants, cafe's, and buffets that are tasty and timely. There could be some more healthy options, but that is up to the student to seek!

Safe Is Secure – There are on campus police which are strict in regards to drinking and drug use. Neither of these are allowed on campus regardless of age or prescription. The school is very serious about these infractions and will punish, often, more severely than the officers. The campus is generally safe however, so police action for behavior and crime is very rare.

Practice What You Preach – When people ask me about my university, describing the diversity of the student body and faculty is one of my first enthusiastic responses. People from all over the country and world come to UCF to teach, learn, and spread their indifference. The campus is very welcoming and people are generally interested and respectful to those of all nationalities and backgrounds.

UCF is one of the most progressive universities I've seen. I have been in love with the campus environment since my first day there. From the student body and faculty to the sporting events and pep rallies, UCF exudes both tradition and change! Classes are challenging, but keep me engaged and interesting. I am very proud to be a Knight!

Many Available for All Types of People – There is a LOT of money out there for college students. UCF offers many different scholarships and financial aid options that helps make school affordable. Some require financial need while others are awarded based on academics. There is an entire building and website dedicated to UCF scholarships.

Cheap and Accessable – Off-campus housing is a much cheaper option than on-campus dorms. Most upperclassmen choose to live with roommates off campus. There are many choices of off-campus housing that are incredibly close to campus. Transportation to and from these off-campus options is widely available.

Limited Yet Available – Parking on campus requires a decal and is under strict regulation by campus authorities. If a student has a parking pass or permit they will be allowed to park in the designated area with ease.

I have heard horror stories about parking on campus before I transferred to UCF. I have had way worse experiences at FAU where I would get to school an hour early and still be late to school due to limited parking spots. If you get there about 15-20 minutes before school you won't have an issue. They have many parking garages so parking has not been much of hassle for me.

It is Florida, so it is very sunny but very hot and humid. I have never had class canceled due to weather related issues. I haven't had a hurricane day since I was in highschool. We have some serious rain storms which makes driving and parking a little more challenging but that is about it.

Some of the lectures at orientation I felt were pointless. but, a lot of them were helpful as well! I would recommend letting students get to know each other and the staff and O-Team more! also, the "tour" of the campus could be more involved! it honestly didn't help at all and was a waste of time because the people giving the tour were just pointing at things and talking really fast! not everyone has been on that campus before a lot or have lots of friends yet!

There are many dorm options available from joint-rooms to private rooms and apartment-style dorms. It's nice to live on campus your first year. It helps you to meet people, partake in campus activities, and get involved. Should you chose to move off after your first or second year, there are great student living apartments nearby that offer shuttle transportation to campus.

UCF is very tolerant of all ethnicities, religions, and sexualities. There are clubs and activities for special interest groups as well as campus-wide activities for everyone, during which, I have never visualized or experienced and discrimination. It's a very harmonious campus.

There are hundreds of majors and programs to choose from ranging from forensics, to engineering, to hospitality, to pre-law or pre-med. There are great study areas in the student union, library, in each dorm building, classroom building, and also in many on and off campus restaurants such as Panera, and Starbucks, which are close by,

The nursing program is unique because it is a cohort. All the students take all of the classes together, go through the challenges and struggles together, and become very close. It is nice to be a part of a program, but also to branch out and participate in campus-wide activities. It is a very time consuming program, but it is a great experience.

Guys & Girls:
The diversity of students again is very diverse. It is hard to describe the whole population as one. There are a lot of girls and a lot of good looking ones. They are always a distraction from school work.

Always Something to Do – the Nightlife scene is open for all students, regardless of age. Clubs are 18+ (no alcohol unless 21) and there are always clubs and organizations putting on free social activities such as movies, dancing, food, and more! There is always something to do at night.
College Sophomore 2012-07-20T21:40:06Z
Nothing to Complain About – The computers work efficiently and there is always a computer open across campus. There are several open computer labs, as well as the computer lab in the engineering building just for engineers, like me. Printing on campus is easy to get to and free in some places. The wireless access in dorms could be improved and faster. A personal computer and printer is recommended because they are much more accessible.

At the University of Central Florida it is high unlikely you will find two students who are exactly alike. The diversity is unmatched. You will not find such a diverse community almost anywhere on Earth. That is why I love to call this place home.

Orlando. Enough Said. Seriously... I don't have anything that can better summarize how magnificent it truly is.

Buses Are the Way to Go – The fact that the university has a student only bus that runs around gemeni circle, means you will always be on time for your ten-minute-apart classes

I'm never eligible to receive grants and scholarships from UCF. They are not good at giving financial aid.
College Senior 2012-07-20T16:53:59Z
