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
Recent Alumnus 2012-01-03T16:47:34Z
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.

Spirit Splash – One of my favorite parts of the school year is Spirit Splash. Its an annual tradition that has been around for many years. During this time we celebrate our Knight pride and all run into our huge fountain at the same time. This is the only time of the year that we are allowed to get into the fountain. Beach balls are thrown and music is played and it's just a fun and stress-free experience that will always be stay in your memories!

I wouldn't chose to be anywhere else than UCF. The reason I love it so much, is all of the memorable experiences you can take part in as a school such as spirit splash and football/basketball games. I also love it because all of the professors really want you to succeed, and will help you do so. There are plenty of accessible places on campus to help you better your education.

No Playing Around – The cops on campus are pretty strict. But, they try to be fair with everybody. If you are drinking underage, they will make sure you pay the consequence. But, if your of drinking age, they just want everybody to be safe. Without the strictness of cops, the big campus could be out of control and dangerous.

Endless Waiting – Since I live in a college-affiliated apartment, I have access to a free shuttle service that transports me to school and back. However, that is the only route the shuttle takes; to school and back so if I have to go shopping, I would have to take the local bus transit which costs many and has numerous stops. In addition, if it wasn't already terrible that my shuttle had such a limited route, it also takes a long time to arrive most of the time which is surprising to me because I don't live that far away from the school and can in fact ride my bike to school faster than the shuttle can arrive with minimal effort.

The Cost of Living – I feel that while the off-campus housing options are plentiful, the cost of rent for college-affiliated apartments like the one I currently reside in do not take into account the diminishing amount of scholarships and grants available for college students such as myself who have to deal with rising tuition costs.

Super Simple – It was relatively easy to get into the degree program. The most important criteria is to have a good GPA, lots of community service, and extra-curricular activities. Be a well rounded student to maximize your success in the application process.

Many Resources to Maximize Success – My school has many things to offer that help maximize student success from the library, all-knight study, and the student union. All of these resources help students to do there best, if used correctly.

A Plethora of Apartment Options – The UCF area has many off-campus housing options so anyone would be able to find a place that they like. Also, for those who are on campus looking for housing, every Wednesday representatives from the various locations come to the campus and share some information regarding off-campus housing.
College Junior 2011-12-31T20:45:10Z
UCF is one of the best decisions of my life. I love it here. The campus is beautiful, I can choose which classes I want and when to best fit my schedule, I love the new friends I made, and I love how they give alternative options to have fun besides going out to party and drink.
College Junior 2011-12-31T20:43:47Z
Variety of Options – A lot of people drive to the campus and use the parking garages. For those without cars, they can bike, walk, etc, or take the school provided buses from the off campus living to school. They also allow you to rent cars you can use for the day.

Guys & Girls:
People Are Friendly – Everyone is open to making new friends and building new relationships with people. There are many classes, activities, and places on campus to meet different people and become friends.
Recent Alumnus 2011-12-31T19:07:53Z
Slow Disbursement – Because of recent economic hardship, financial aid is on every students mind. UCF offers a great financial aid website but is lacking in a few areas. For instance, financial aid is disbursed the day before tuition is do. This does not give students a lot of time to get their finances sorted out.
Recent Alumnus 2011-12-31T19:04:54Z
UCF is infamous for its parking. Seasoned parker's know it can take up to 45 minutes to find a decent spot making a 45 minute commute to class much longer. Students get so desperate that they literally stalk other students when class is out until the walker waves them on and jumps in the drivers car for a nice ride to their coveted spot. What can we expect with such a huge student body?
Sorry, there are no reviews.
