Night Life Is Awesome – There is always something to do around UCF whether it is partying, meeting people or going out. Everyone is really nice and the party scene is the best. I go out every Friday and Saturday night.

TAKE THE SHUTTLE – You must pay for parking every semester, about 85$ per semester. You will get ticketed if you park without a decal and they do tow cars if you are parked where you are not suppose to be parked on game days. There is really no need for a car on campus, everything is here. As a freshmen, I do not have a car myself but if you do need to get around, there is a shuttle or you can always ask a friend.

PITA PIT PITA PIT! You must go to Pita Pit. It is Orlando's hot spot. Imagine a chipotle burrito but on pita bread! Mouth-watering!

there are many different ethnicities that can be seen around campus and everyone gets along and respects each other.
College Senior 2012-02-09T02:57:56Z
The cost for school is too much, teachers and parents expect us to go to college/university after we graduate but how can we afford to pay so much for school, every few years tuition rises.
College Senior 2012-02-09T00:40:42Z
The diversity of this school is tremendous. However, I do believe that common ethnic groups find it easier to fit in with each other than most of the other student body.

Rip Off. Instead of trying to help you, apartments around here rip you off for what you get. The models are nice ofcourse, but the actual rooms are not only beaten up but also extremely dirty no matter how much you clean it. A NICE townhouse with 3 bedrooms/2 baths around here costs around $1,200 a month, and at the apartments they charge you $600 plus overcharges for 4 rooms each person.

The meal plans have bad quality food and is repetitive. You also only save 25 cents per meal for buying a meal plan...not worth it. The student union has options but only like a small food court at a mall, so I would only count on it if you were in a rush.

More expensive than off campus options. Nike/Hercules seem to be best for the money, they're new, beautiful area. Not as close to everything as Apollo, the cheapest (and Freshmen) community. Towers at knight's plaza are overrated and overpriced for a little more room. Libra and Lake Claire are eh. Definitely aim for Academic Village (Nike/Herc)
College Junior 2012-02-08T06:45:09Z
Meal plans are way too expensive, and not worth the money as many have said. better to make/cook your own food. Eating out options include Subway, Sbarro's, variety of asian foods, Qdoba, chick-fil-a, greek restaurant and more.
College Junior 2012-02-08T05:03:51Z
The nicest dorms are rated from best to worst: nike, hercules, the Towers, libra. Nike and hercules dorms are very nice, but the rooms are closed off from most of the people on the floor. Tower apartments are very expensive too.

Technology Center – The wifi around campus is pretty reliable, except in some classrooms. There was a new technology center recently redone and it is amazing. It was refurbished with macs and a bunch of other technological devices.

I attended UCF because of its Engineering program, which is really great by the way. The campus is beautiful and stunning. Most of the professors are very helpful and are usually always there to help the students. Some of the class sizes are too large, for any special help during class

Can't Wait to Get Through Freshman Year – My experience at UCF has for the most part been positive. The worst thing I've experienced so far is living on campus without a car. The campus turns into a ghost town on the weekends and there is nothing to do during the day. Without a car and any type of transportation offered by the school, my roommate and I often find ourselves sitting around doing nothing. The pool closes from November 1st until mid-February which is absolutely ridiculous and we were never warned about this occuring. No one lives on campus and I would not recommend it. The only benefit is waking up 15 minutes before class. Nightlife is fun, the surrounding bars as well as the downtown bars/clubs have a lot to offer students. If you aren't into the partying scene good luck finding something else to do on the weekends. Other than that, the school itself is great. I've enjoyed my classes for the most part up to this point and the facilities are great.

Pros and Cons – The dining halls are not consistent; sometimes there are a few good options, other times there is nothing at all. The student union and a various other places on campus hold a variety of other food options, basically everything a student could be looking for. The problem is that the meal plan covers NONE of these places. Only the dining hall is including and it gets old very quickly. I wouldn't recommend a big meal plan.
College Junior 2012-02-07T20:57:39Z
Lots to Do! The area of Orlando in which UCF is located is home to thousands and thousands of college students. As a result there are a great variety of restaurants, shopping, bars, etc. You could basically find anything you could possibly want or need in the UCF area.
College Junior 2012-02-07T19:39:21Z
Transportation is definitely at our disposal. We have buses to take us around the area, as well as shuttles that go to and from school to our apartments.

The Greek life on campus seems to be alive and well and many people seem to enjoy it. It is a big thing on campus, I am not involved in the Greek system.
College Junior 2012-02-07T19:33:30Z
Meal Plan – The food at UCF is decent, it is appealing and they make sure you get enough food. You will not go hungry on this campus.

Filling out FAFSA will get you the aid you deserve. UCF offers a lot of grants and scholarships. I was always satisfied with the amount of aid I received.
Recent Alumnus 2012-02-07T18:33:36Z
Greeks Are Around – There are plenty of greek organizations but they definitely do not dominate the scene. And there are likely far more non greeks than greeks. They have some really nice houses on campus though.
Recent Alumnus 2012-02-07T18:30:40Z
Computer Labs – There are several computer labs on campus, and some dedicated for free printing only. The only reason for the low grade is that there is almost always a wait to use a computer in any of the printing labs. There are ample softwares and up to date computers available for use. They even have several macs for use as well. Students have access to one of the best research databases also.

Wouldn't Want to Be Anywhere Else – I've visited other schools (University of Florida, University of Miami, Florida State University, etc) and honestly, nothing is comparable to the University of Central Florida. This school is in the center of everything! There's so much to do both on and off-campus, and there's so many clubs you can join. The environment is great. I see UCF as a very modern school that is going to keep on progressing and growing as time goes by. Trust me when I say I am in the right place.

Guys & Girls:
Range of Possibilities – There's no one type of guy or girl at the University of Central Florida. You'll find people from all around the world here with backgrounds that might surprise you, or even some you can relate to. It won't be difficult in finding your niche here.
College Junior 2012-02-07T08:51:08Z
There are plenty of off-campus dinning options near the University of Central Florida. Some are walking distance, and others can be reached by transportation provided by the university. One of the locations UCF transportation goes to is Waterford Lakes. There's a ton of affordable restaurants there for the everyday student.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
