There is never a problem with places to park. For the most part it is very convenient for everyone.

UCF tends to be very diverse and at the same time all ethnicities are accepted and there are rarely disputes between students

The dining services available off campus are very convenient and very inexpensive (for the most part). They are usually open 24 hours and are a perfect setting for a college environment

Guys & Girls:
Not Much Happening – There is nothing exciting happening at UCF. The guys are nothing special to look at. They are friendly though but not very interesting.

Cops like to bust parties and break up underage drinking. But if your stealthy you can get away with it.

Marketplace Can Be Crowded During Certain Hours – There are plenty of places to choose to dine at on campus. If you buy a meal plan it gets quite crowded at certain hours

Very Good Except for Network Connection – The only complaint I have is the ucf site can be very slow sometimes, and I cannot connect to wireless on campus if I bring a laptop. Library computers are packed like a slave ship year round

Overall, the weather in Orlando is great. During the winter months, the weather is temperate with highs of 70 and lows in the 50s. During the summer months on the other hand, it gets very very hot. The temperature rarely drops below 85 degrees regardless of the time of day and it usually rains in the afternoon. Needless to say, there are an abundance of pools in the area.

There is a vibrant nightlife at the University of Central Florida. There are bars, clubs, movie theaters, and outlet malls all within 5 mins of the UCF campus. The majority of undergraduates go out on friday and saturday nights to local bars. There are a plethora of 18+ clubs and bars that cater to the younger crowd of students which make UCF a great area to party and have fun. For the non-drinkers, Waterford lakes is conveniently located 2 miles south of the UCF campus and has a movie theater, bowling alley, a gym, and lots of restaurants and retail stores.

Recreation and Wellness Center – I love the gym on campus. I have used it since freshman year and it is awesome. There is raquetball, basketball, tennis, free weights, machines, and much more. I go there in my free time just to hang out.

Orlando Eateries – At UCF you have the full resources of Orlando to feast on. There are tons of great spots to eat. My favorites are the little Chinese and Vietnamese cafes near mills and colonial. Worth the (5-6 mile) drive.

If you need to park during prime time (like noon) it will suck, come to school early. There is a really awesome free shuttle service that goes from 7am to 9pm (maybe) to school from like 10 of the student housing complexes off campus.

Good Selection – Great selection at UCF: chinese, chick-fil-a, subway, kosher/hilal and smoothies to name a few. Of course its better to eat off campus: its cheaper!

Orlando Fun – Orlando is much more than the attractions. You can go once to see if you want but there is a bunch of cool theatres, nightlife and such downtown on Orange Ave. Mills and Colonial are the Asian-American center of town and are packed with Thai and Chinese spots. The best advice is to get to know the locals!

Don't Break the Law, You'll Get Arrested – The campus police are like hawks at night catching drunk drivers, don't drink and drive. UCF is a dry campus, meaning there is no liquor allowed on campus. Sorority and fraternity events usually have beer, and maybe in the dorm rooms. During food ball games people 21+ can bring beer on campus and drink during tailgaiting if you are into that. Get caught smoking weed in your dorm the police will be called, confiscate the drugs and you lose your housing and the money you paid. Drinking underage is less severe, you just get a warning.

Good Options for Meal Plans and Lots of Options for Fast Food – There are a lot of places on campus that you can get lunch or a snack, there is 3 Starbucks, Einstein Bagles, Chick Fil-A, and then in the Student Union there is a food court comparable to a mall. Meal plan wise, the two "dining halls" on campus are great. The staff if super nice and they serve different food everyday, there is always pizza available in addition to actual meals. In the mornings there is a ceral bar, waffles, and sometimes french toast.. plus an entire buffet of fresh fruit and a variety of fruit juices.

Great Opportunity to Join – Greek life is big at UCF they promote a lot and you always see there faces.

Go Out and Explore – Many options you can choose from Orlando has everything you would like to do.

Alcohol and Drugs – With the unfortunate incidents of the past involving Greek societies and underage drinking, the school has taken appropriate actions to combat the minimal problems we have at UCF. This school can neither be considered a drug haven or an insane party school. If you are interested in having fun, there are many options, but nothing is out of control

Dining on Campus? Dining on campus is varied to a degree, however most of the go-to places are located off campus less than a mile away. The meal plan includes several interesting options, however the food and less-than-modern layout will remind you of an elementary school cafeteria.

The University of Central Florida offers numerous sites for doing research, projects, and general private learning. Internet and computers are available just about wherever you might be on campus. Free printing is available to students in-the-know, and the average age of technology on campus is within 3 years.

The Rain Sucks – We have a very large, wide-spread campus and when it rains, more than likely you will get soaked just getting from one building to the next. It's best just to wait it out, and if you can't, get ready to feel cold and miserable the rest of the day.

Gym was recently remodeled and looks amazing. Campus is beautiful, library is huge, and school has overall great aesthetic qualities.
Recent Alumnus 2011-12-20T19:19:12Z
Always have computers available, and free printing is available 24/7. However, after 10 am good luck finding a computer at the library. I'd bring my own.

Not Sure – I'm not too familiar with off-campus dining but there are plenty of restaurants tat surround UCF. Many of them even give students discounts. Its pretty standard pricing compared to the rest of the world. Not bad by any standards.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
