Many Choices – Since the university has limited housing space for it's 40,000 student there are many choices off campus from the super cheap affiliated housing to up-scale apartments/townhouses. Some even find it more convenient to rent a home.

Many Options – many options off-campus. Located in a busy area and near a shopping center (Waterford) which has numerous locations to choose from. 20 min from downtown Orlando which has even more choices but more expensive

Curriculum Materials Center – The curriculum materials center in the education complex is a wonderful resource. They have all the books and materials necessary to help students in the education field with any project. There are also a lot of reference materials that can be utilized.

Tendency to Loose Things – I have had to stay on top of my scholarships making sure I got all my money because the school has a hard time keeping track of all the information. But they are easy to talk to when the first two months have passed. They do their best to make sure that you are taken care of.

Parking can be a hassle. There is no guarantee that you will get a spot even if you have a pass. But most students just walk or ride their bike so they do not have to worry about traffic.

Clean and Safe Enviorment – The new dorms are in a secluded area that feels like a resort. Staff comes in and does weekly cleaning of the buildings. It does not feel like we are on a college campus but instead it feeld like a small safe community.
College Junior 2011-12-26T21:51:06Z
Could Be Better – Definitely needs more packing lots or garages and needs to make parking permits more affordable.

Location Location Location – If you can't find something to do on campus, (which is ridiculous since there are plenty of activities you can join through clubs or through the recreation center)then you can find multiple things to do off campus.
While there are no theme parks right in sight, there are plenty of restaurants, smoothie shops, ice cream parlors, and clubs to hang with your friends at.
If you want to go away from the main road Alafaya, then you can drive thirty minutes to the ever-popular beach: Cocoa. Or you can use your student discount at any of the semi-nearby Theme parks such as Universal or any of the Disney parks.

Civil Engineering – The process of getting into the major of civil engineering was fairly challenging because it required a lot of work which is good for the students because it prepares them for what the classes are going to be like and it was necessary to have good math and sciences done to get in as well. They do not have an abnormal process, just a demanding one because it is a difficult major.

The drugs at UCF are not seen around campus because there are police members always on the watch and they keep the campus as a safe environment for all of the students.
College Junior 2011-12-26T18:29:15Z
Computer Labs – The computer labs are great and very efficient with helping students because the computers were great and with great speed and do not freeze or ruin one's work on them.

I Am an Online Student – I am strictly an online student and find the network and MyUCF extremely reliable and easy to use. I am able to access my classes, grades, registration, etc. from anywhere.

Its very hot in the summer with no costal breeze and thunderstorms almost every afternoon. The beach is only an hour away and there are pools everywhere so summers are bareable.
Winters can get fairly cold (at leat for me a Florida native) but the sun shines and it is usually beautiful.
All in all I think the weather is very nice....Lets put it this way, it could be way worse.

Food Around Campus – There is just about everything you can imagine to eat around campus. A drive down University blvd. will give you the option for just about any fod you may be in the mood for at a variety of price points. You have your fast food, McDonalds, Wendeys, Burger King, Backyard Burger, Chik-Fila, and Taco Bell. Then theres the college staple of pizza...Lazy Moon, a UCF exclusive features pizza slices the size of a normal pizza pie for a very reasonable price, and also offers a unique and fun atmosphere. You also have all of the normal pizza places like Pizza hut, Papa Johns, and Dominos. There are also a number of sit down restaruantes including Applebees, Ruby Tuesdyas, El Cero, and Azteca. AS you can see just on the main road leading into campus students are able to eat whatever they want at what ever price point they are looking for.

Take all forms to school as early as possible because then during the first week of class you'll be waiting to be at the financial aid office for hours to be assisted.

Inside Scoop – Athletics, the AMAZING atmosphere, the outdoor environment, the number of resources, and the fact that the school is located next to many common stores.

There is always a sport being played either on campus or at the apartment complexes. Sports are a major thing at UCF. Physical fitness is also very important.

The transportation is excellent. The shuttle is convenient and fast.

The sports team's at UCF are not nationally ranked but really fun to participate in.

UCF has an extremely beautiful student union with good food options.

I believe that every University, including my own, has to create policies to keep students safe. There are punitive and educational sanctions which are enforced if students engage in misconduct. I support these sanctions and believe that every UCF Knight should keep their integrity for the wellness of our university,

Greeks Give Back – Greek Life at UCF offers a lot to the community because they are engaging members of the student body and care about the wellness of our institution. Greek life accepts non-Greek members on Greek row. They are extremely welcoming which inspires non-Greeks to engage in community service.

Late-Night Munchies – My institution has the most variety concerning off-campus dining. Down University Blvd, you can find restaurants like Pita-pit for Gyros lovers, Mexican Cuisines, Asian Cuisines, and Barbecue dining. All of these restaurants offer great deals for students, which I save a ton of money from. The best place to check out is Wing-Zone and Del Taco.

Too Much Rain – The weather is so unpredictable in Florida, and sometimes if you're not prepared for rain, getting to your classes is horrible. There isn't much cover around UCF and the campus is gigantic.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
