Health & Safety:
Pretty Safe – There isn't a day im on campus that I don't see a police officer or one of the cars. There is a police station right on campus near the gym. There has been a few break ins around the dorms and parking lots but the school has always been able to apprehend the perpetrators. Campus security always notifies students the minute there is a treat to their safety via e-mail, text or call. So there isn't much that can be expected of them. They try their best, it is up to the students to act like they have some sense and treat each other and themselves with respect and care.

Some of Our Teams Are Good. The sports program is run well but in terms of winning and accomplishments our school lacks that.

A Variety of Different Students – predominantly white but there is a large variety of diversity though out the student body.

Too Many Too Choose from Yet Same Price Range – There are a lot to choose from yet they all only differ in certain areas and for the most part the price ranges are all the same.

The Service Is Better Than Most Other University – Unlike many other schools, ucf gives its students the ability to have FREE printing, thus causing those 3 locations to be pretty busy. Other than that is someone doesn't fell like waiting then they can go to the numerous locations on campus that offers paid printing. There is Wi-Fi pretty much everywhere on campus. Sometimes a little slow but all in all it a pretty decent service.

Everything You Could Ever Crave – UCF has a very wide variety of dining options both on campus and off campus.

Sports are becoming very popular at the University of Central Florida. The teams are working hard and showing much improvement over the past 2 years. Team spirit is evident across the campus. IM sports are also popular with the huge recreation center and sports fields on campus.

Every university values their football team as if they're gods. Football season is the favorite sports season for almost all schools. UCF isn't much different but we're definitely not the best team around. It's not like we always lose but winning is one thing we never got used to this past season. Basketball, there's a lot of hype around the fact that Michael Jordan's son plays for our team, but he isn't making any miracles happen. Our b-ball team is only alright. Soccer and track have been very successful this past year though.
School spirit is somewhat apparent for football but for other sports I don't see it much. Basketball has their own club, Rowdy Knights but with the size of our university you'd expect it would be a little bigger. I wish we were more passionate. As for our facilities I believe they're A+

Guys & Girls:
Typical Campus – The campus is mostly a typical campus. There is the cute boys, the geeky boys, the atheltic boys, etc. Its nice to have a variety though.

I wish there were more liberal arts detailing music and fashion.
College Junior 2012-05-07T15:33:06Z
I Wish There Was More – Wish they had things dealing more with the arts such as music, fashion, etc.

Orlando Is Home to So Much – Uhm theme parks anyone? Orlando is pretty much the capital when it comes to this and luckily at UCF we get discounts on all the fun. There are plenty of malls, restaurants, etc in the area. You can find so much to do, everything happens in orlando; concerts, sports events, you name it. With that said you'll hear about people running into celebrities at malls and such.

Not Harsh – There is no harshness here. Police exist as in anywhere, but they seem understanding of the college-context.

Not Much Rain, Sunny – Weather is pretty good at UCF. The more humidity and heat bothers you, however, the more you might disagree. During the summer, it rains a bit, but nothing too treacherous.

But, our football team does well. Basketball games have an OK attendance. And if it is some kind of consolation, our gym is often packed.

Its a Lifestyle – I always thought Greek life was fascinating even if it wasn't for me. I often party with a couple of the fraternities and sororities because we share mutual friends and they are quite friendly. Greeks are always trying to look for your better interest, meaning they want you to rush or pledge but they aren't overbearing and they do do good for the campus with social and volunteer events.

Difficult but Rewarding – I'm an animations major though I'm still running through the pre-reqs to actually get into the program. The pre-reqs, which are the studio art classes and history courses, really test your core ability to draw and understand art and is necessary to get into animation; there's no point in wanting to do it if you don't like to draw. There is an animation portfolio review once you finish your pre-reqs to get into the main program and that is where most of your focus needs to go; while other majors worry about their GPA's, its your portfolio, YOUR WORK that speaks your deftness in the art field.

I'm Stunned – UCF blows me away. As a transfer student, I came here not knowing what to expect out of myself but in one year, I've made great strides in my classes, made great friends with likeminded individuals, joined school committees, placed in a scholarship pageant, organized a block party, slept in a classroom for two nights during finals week, got a picture with my celebrity crush, performed spoken words in front of hundreds of people, partied, joined a statewide competition being judged by the Orlando Sentinel, the co-founder of Paramount Pictures and Universal Studios and won 2nd out of 30. I only SCRATCHED the surface my first year and the most impossible task would be to tell you everything UCF has to offer.

You Pay to Go to School; Please Don't Slack – Teachers have their own means of grading and leading a class from beginning to end but all share the same sentiment; do the work, study the material and you won't fail. Its a simple sentiment but they don't force it onto the student; you pay the tuition so its your choice whether or not you want to go to class. Failure to do so is really in the student's hands and if it happens, you can apply for grade forgiveness so the bad grade does not appear on your transcript and you can retake the class...though this cannot be used infinitely. If you went to a UCF orientation, they stress this until your head goes numb.

Great Opportunities. Close to Campus. Transportation Simple. UCF offers a lot of Off-Campus housing and has several helpful websites up to offer aid in finding housing. A big plus about UCF is the transportation. Buses run throughout the day back and forth from majority of the off-campus communities. It is VERY helpful for so many students.

Very Fun – There are a wide varitey of clubs around UCF. Downtown Orlando is about 15 minuets away and there is Church Street down there which has at least 40 different clubs to choose from. Also in a few plazas there are some other clubs such a FUBAR, which is known for underage drinking. Most of the clubs on Church Street are 21+ but some are 18+.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
