A Very Good Decision – I decided to go to the University of Central Florida because its a newer school with a great campus. All of the professors I have had have been very involved in my education and they still keep in-touch after the class ends. The weather is beautiful all year long. The on-campus gym is the best gym I have ever been to, everything looks clean and brand new, and there's always so many activities going on. I'm so glad I came here!

Traffic Can Get Thick During the Day – We have a large amount of parking lots, but during the busy school day traffic can still get clogged up and parking spaces in some areas become non existent.

Football Is a Big Part of Our School – The football program is huge at our school, and game days bring out the biggest crowds of students and non students. We have fantastic school spirit and student involvement.

Student Center, Libraries and Campus Aesthetics Are Great. All of the facilities on campus are superb. The library is helpful and large, the student center is great, and the aesthetics are wonderful.

When I was applying for colleges, I told myself I wanted to go to a small school, but then I ended up choosing the second largest school in the country. It was hard at first to get acclimated because I was used to a small school environment. You just have to make the effort to find a group of people to hang out with--join a club, play an intramural sport, etc.

I haven't surrounded myself around drugs and alcohol since coming to UCF. It depends on the kind of people you hang out with, though. I do see a fair amount of smoking but haven't been pressured to do so. The only time I see alcohol is at the tailgates for the football games.

The dining halls serve decent food and are very clean and look nice on the inside. Prices are reasonable as well, I feel. It is a good idea to have a meal plan your freshmen year if you are living on campus without a kitchen. There are also many places to eat on campus that aren't a part of the meal plan, and you can use your fining dollars there sometimes.

I'm an Elementary Education major, and I have only heard good things about the program at UCF. It is the largest major in the school of education. The workload for the major has not been overbearing yet, and I feel that all of the assignments given are helping me to become a better educator in the future. I especially like that we must complete service learning hours during our first three years and an internship during our senior year because we are getting practical hands on experience in the field we will be working in.

Health & Safety:
I have always felt secure on campus. I see the emergency buttons we can push all around campus if we need help. I also know that we can get a ride from someone who works for the school if we don't want to walk back to our dorm late at night. I have never felt unsafe or like my belongings weren't secure since I've been in college.

Campus Transport – There are tons of ways to get to UCF if you don't want to drive. There is a shuttle service that picks students up at the nearby apartments and drops them off on campus. They are on time but if you miss your bus you will have to wait until the next scheduled one. There is also public transport but public transport isn't that great in Orlando.

There are many facilities available to UCF students, all that is needed is your UCF ID. The gym is top of the line with a large variety of classes being offered. Although many students take advantage of the gym it is hardly ever overcrowded.
The main library is huge with different floors having uses. The one problem would be the group study rooms. At most you can comfortable fit four people but they are on the bottom floor, has poor lighting, and poor ventilation.
There are many clubs and groups available to students and everyday around lunch time they are promoted. This is the chance to learn about UCF, as well as their clubs and groups and snag some free gear.

Non-Profit Intership – This spring I am going to join the team at the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Metro Orlando in the graphic design department that I am very excited about. This will give me a great opportunity to develop my skills in advertising events and great for my portfolio.

I find that UCF is trying really hard to let the students know that there is other chooses that is not drug or alcohol. We have events every other Friday that shows how a student can have fun without drugs.

Waterford Lakes Central – There is everything between shopping and movie theater. I always enjoy my time while I am in Waterford Lakes.

Lots Going on – There are so many things to do. Orlando is a tourist trap so you can visit those spots but it has a great nightlife too!

Great and Then Good – I have been helped with financial aid and satisfied with the staff's input. Financial aid appears to be harder to come by the more time that goes by. Unfortunately tuition went up.

Location and Size – Orlando is huge and teeming with connections and opportunities

Full of Opportunity – The orlando area has a ton of business, recreational and diverse attractions, activities, events, shopping, and sports available.

At the main campus, parking is very strict if you forget for 10 minutes to put the payed ticket. But over at regional campuses the parking is pretty easy going. The main campus parking rates are pretty pricy but it's worth paying the whole fee than getting daily tickets.

UCF has many campuses. The main one is located in the Orlando which is a city full of attractions and turistic activities. I prefer the regional campus (where I go to)because there's no rush or crowds that you find in UCF orlando. We can still enjoy all the benefits of going to a big school like UCF but having benefits of less students around.

Sunny, but When It Rains, It Pours! Sunny Central Florida is no joke, and it does get hot walking to class sometimes, but mostly it's great! I have had to walk to class in monsoons before and got completely soaked even with an umbrella!

Health & Safety:
I have never felt unsafe on UCF's campus, we even have our own personal UCF police force. The officers are present without being overbearing and easy to seek out for assistance if needed.

Health & Safety:
Safety Comes First – Campus safety is a top priority at UCF. The students are always made well aware of crime going on near or on campus through campus alerts sent directly to your phone. If you are ever on campus late and would like an escort, those are made available to you.

I live in the towers, and have had a good experience, with the exception of some terribly slow and creaky elevators. I have heard great things about other options on campus, and terrible things about others. My experience has been positive though.
College Junior 2012-01-02T05:31:37Z
Mostly Good – Most of the buildings are newer and well maintained. The intramural fields are great, and the gym is pristine. Classrooms are decent, though some have older and uncomfortable desks. The dorms seem to be hit or miss. I am happy in the towers (though the elevators could use some work) but have heard bad things about some other communities. I have personally had no problems though.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
