Plenty of Things to Do – Orlando and its suburbs offer a wide range of attractions and activities. There are multiple theme parks close by, many shopping malls and plazas with a variety of stores, several great museums, and nice parks and outdoor activities. It takes less than an hour to get to the beach, and Kennedy Space Center is also not far away. No matter what your interests are, there is something in the area that will appeal to you. In the area immediately surrounding the campus, many of the businesses really cater to UCF students and provide a fun and welcoming atmosphere.

Too Many – There are soooo many majors here i cant decide what the difference is between some of them.

Could Have Categories – there is a website link on the ucf page that shows scholarships. Though it just jumps categories from grad students to high school to women and etc...

the internet is slow at times but generally good speed.

Well, That Depend – There are plenty of different options for housing, each one pretty nice but it is undeniable some options are better than others. For the cheapest price you will have to share a room and for a little more you get the luxury of privacy and a new building. All dorms are fairly close to central campus and to the classrooms.

The Best of the Best – UCF has the best equipment and facilities to offer. There is something for everyone. No matter what you need, you can find it in either the Student Union, the Recreation and Wellness Center (newly done), or any of the other campus resources.

Lots to Do – Orlando is the Nation's tourist location. You are so close to anything you may possibly want to do: theme parks, beach, sports, concerts, night life. Here you will never be bored with all the local entertainment Orlando has to offer.

Too Many Goose Chases – Everyone seems to say something different, as to where to go, what forms needed. The only answer that was the same was the deadline date.

Buses Are Easiest – The parking is AWFUL. You literally have to stalk students to get a parking spot between 10am - 7pm. The park and ride lot is one of the best options, its a lot behind the stadium where a bus comes and stops at almost every building on campus. Granted, it takes forever to get to your destination, and you still have to pay for the decal to park in the lot but its much better than circling for half an hour for a parking spot on campus.

Health & Safety:
Could Be Better – I lived on campus for my freshman year and I honestly say I felt safe, until a meth lab exploded in a dorm across the street. Also, walking to my dorm at night just from the parking lot seemed terrifying to me. There is an organization that will take you around campus on a golf cart when you call, but the times I called the line was always busy. It seemed useless to me.

Student Teaching – I haven't had my internship yet, but I know from talking to people that it is a non-paid internship, lasting a few months. Some teachers will take advantage of you and seriously not do ANY of the work. Every teacher is different.

Tough to Get Around Without a Car-- Buses Good. Basically what I just said- the campus is huge, so you def. need transportation. Either a car or the bus is the best bet.

Food Is Fine! As indicated before, there are mostly chain stores located around here, but there are definitely also a few little shops that you can get to easily. There are chain restaurants in little shops on campus, which is really handy. The cafeteria is fine.

So far things have been pretty good. My college within the university is all centrally located, with in the campus, but a little far from outside facilities.
College Senior 2012-01-22T23:11:31Z
Good Diversity! Many students/staff from various cultures and places, and I think most people are pretty open to everyone's differences.
College Senior 2012-01-22T23:10:32Z
Such a great variety and pretty reasonably priced.

Loving the Knight Life – I absoultely love UCF. I will forever get to cherish the memory of spirit splash. It was insane and made me fall in love all over again. My UCF college experience is probably not as great as others because i got really homesick and im in an ongoing long distance relationship which made me sad at times but it just makes me stronger as a person. i wouldnt trade UCF for anywhere else in the world.

Don't Get Caught – The housing administration and the on campus police are very strict when it comes to underage drinking and drugs. Sure there are a lot of students who do it anyways but there is no warning past orientation, if you are caught with illegal substances on campus you loose your housing almost instantly. They are also extremely strict about fire safety.

School Spirit – I have only attended the football and basketball games so far and we are pretty average but i can tell you that UCF athletics is all about school spirit and tradition. The student section is always jammed pact and there is so much excitement all around. There are many traditions and different chants that as a UCF student you have to know.

HSA Program – For my degree,Health Service Administration i like all the classes I am taking. The teachers spend time to help students understand the materials.

Big Selection but That's All – The housing closest to campus is very crime ridden and over priced for small, outdated apartments. Your best bet is to go a little farther from campus, like a 10 minute drive, and only look at places not affiliated with UCF.

Highly Rated but Underwhelming – The College of Business is one of the best programs in the United States and it is the largest Business college in the country. Students come as far as Alaska to go here but they'll be disappointed. As funding gets cut every semester, the students are the ones that feel the pressure. Most business classes are online only and you are charged a higher tuition rate for online classes. The professors are nice enough, the ones that don't have tenure, I mean. The school seems more like a for-profit business that a place of learning.

UCF can be both lenient and strict, depending on the policy. For example, they are pretty strict about drinking and drug use on campus, but when it comes to noise complaints I have seen situations where not much is done.
College Senior 2012-01-21T15:44:50Z
The drug scene at any school really depends on who you hang out with. At UCF, drinking and smoking seems to be a pretty huge deal. Unfortunately, it seems as if partying has become more essential than school itself. Many students here participate in these activities on a weekly basis.

As a second year student at UCF, I can easily say that this school contains and accepts a plethora of races and orientations. Every possible diverse group has its own club or organization, and is encouraged to expand. Overall, I view UCF as very welcoming to diversity.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
