I'm a non greek, and I appreciate Greek Life on campus, they do a lot and when they got banned one semester that I was here a lot of things lacked presence because greeks would get together and be a big presence. Such as intramural sports or the annual dance fundraiser. Most of campus is non greek and being greek or non greek isn't going to change anybodies attitude toward you. It's not like some smaller schools that it's all they have.

It's okay, if you want fresh healthy food options, I really only think that the salad bar and the kosher food place are the best options, the rest of it is mainly fast food, but the availability is great and the price is the same what it would be off campus. But the options on campus are great, they opened a Dunkin Donuts this semester, there is a sbarro, huey magoos, chik fil a, tropical smoothie, two starbucks, einstein bagel bros, 3 subway's, and some others that I can't think of right now.

The WiFi is great. The computer labs all have the newest computers with all the latest software to use and complete your assignments. Availability is great, even during midterms and finals weeks. The library and computer labs are open later on finals week. I currently left my laptop at my parents house, all I really use it for is surfing the web, blogging, and Netflix. All my school work I do on campus computers, it is also really convenient how their is a virtual drive attached to your student login so you can save documents and pictures and be able to access them wherever you sign in on campus. There are two 24/7 study lounges on the opposite ends of campus, and the student union is open 24/5 during the year and and 24/7 during finals week.

The argument often comes up that "Who's UCF?" but after being here for 3 years I've seen it's national recognition grow, and seen how important it's students are to it. UCF is about the experiences you have, the people you meet, and the transformation into a functional person post-grad. I believe this is probably the case in a lot of schools, but our school does have uniqueness and traditions that make people who visit it want to come here once they step on the campus. Not only is our campus beautiful but the people are inviting and I haven't met anyone who went here or left not miss it. It's a lifestyle you can get used to and not want to let go.

Guys & Girls:
We really have such a beautiful mix of people, races, dress, many people in relationships, many people who aren't. People are really friendly. I'm on my third year and I can't walk around one campus one day without seeing extremely attractive guys. I find most of them in the library and the gym.

There are plenty of scholarships and aid available. And when it comes to scholarships if you take the time to apply to many you'll get a percentage of them and then you'll be happy because your hard work will be rewarded. A lot of scholarships have specific requirements so get everything in order before thinking of applying. I was just too lazy to apply for scholarships but they are there and there is a lot of money that doesn't get used because people are not applying.

There are so many students, you can't stop everyone but they do a good job. Basically if your being a disruption it will be broken up. If you are doing something illegal, but not being a disruption what will be their motivation to come find you. They are strict when they come break things up and there are drugs, or alcohol. Just be careful or take it off campus and you won't have to deal with it. They are very strict on cheating, and parking you will get a ticket if you don't have a decal. There is a "free speech" lawn in front of the library and on Wednesday's sometimes people can be out there. Visitation in dorms isn't an issue at all. They don't care unless someone files a complaint against you which doesn't happen either.

A lot of students come into college already taking the study drugs, but you don't really find is as a pressing issue. Alcohol is allowed in the dorms as long as your of age. If you are not of age, there are student conduct issues related to that, they are strict however if they find red solo cups and ping pong balls it's considered alcohol paraphernalia. On game days memory mall is filled with tents and alcohol as long as your not acting a fool cops normally don't bother. They do card many people because of the amount of underage drinking going on. I never underage drank on campus but I would hold a cup filled with something else and even if it was filled with alcohol, I behaved so I never got question.

The shuttle system is great as long as you don't depend on it to be somewhere but if you need to get somewhere it will take you. There are the apartment shuttles that go from complex to campus, there are on campus shuttles that transport you around campus only. There are also some shuttle routes on the weekends that take you downtown, or to the local shopping area, also to some of the off campus complexes, that runs until 3am which can be convenient for groups going out or need to get to a complex late at night on the weekend.

Health & Safety:
There are safety escort services available at all times, many emergency poles, I've never encountered anything crazy and the things that you hear about happen rarely and statistically speaking with the amount of students on this campus there will be a few crazy people.

There are a lot of groups on campus so sometimes people do split up, but there are also other groups that form that are based on nothing specific to politics, religion or sexual orientation and those groups are always accepting of everyone. There are a lot of specific work/major related groups that tend to be exclusive, but that is a reality can't have an engineer major in the theater club, it just doesn't make sense.

Off campus housing is very good here with many options, locations, prices, quality as well as school transportation
College Junior 2013-12-04T22:21:58Z
overall financial aid gave me enough money to pay for school and all other costs as well as money left over. Contacting them and making changes in general is usually slow but it will get done.
College Junior 2013-12-04T22:19:30Z
UCF has a large variety of major options with so many programs that are all very good. For me, I needed good grades to get into my major as well as above average gpa
College Junior 2013-12-04T22:19:30Z
UCF has many internship opportunities for a variety of majors, however I have not participated in one yet.
College Junior 2013-12-04T22:17:09Z
overall the local night life, eating options, shopping, fun/recreation, etc is very good here in Orlando being a major tourist destination

Health & Safety:
overall safety on campus is very good. police are there fast and are very willing to help and make campus as safe as possible
College Junior 2013-12-04T22:14:11Z
overall Orlando weather is not too bad. It can get very hot and humid which I dislike but it is definitely better than snow storms. Besides the humidity the weather is usually very nice and does not affect campus life
College Junior 2013-12-04T22:12:27Z
campus strictness is definitely the most visible in the dorm life with drinking, drugs, noise etc. other wise mostly everything else is not very strict
College Junior 2013-12-04T22:10:08Z
Overall the campus housing is pretty good. The dorms are some of the newest in the state of Florida and they have apartment options on campus as well making for a overall better than average dorm life.
College Junior 2013-12-04T22:08:32Z
Drugs used at ucf are pretty popular with marijuana and alcohol being at the top. Drug visibility is not apparent but alcohol visibility especially on game days is very visible
College Junior 2013-12-04T22:06:00Z
average greek life but it attracts a good amount of people and as being a former greek member I enjoyed my time
