Very Nice – There are two dining places to use your meal plan depending on where you stay on campus. they are both nice and for the most part there is something new everyday. Nothing really gets old, except there is pizza all the time but I for one love pizza! But the places are open late for the most part and if you don't want to eat there, there are places on campus for you to get out of the old routine. I promise you will LOVE the dining at UCF

Health & Safety:
Pretty Safe – We have an on-campus police force that will come to the rescue if you call as well as a non-emergency number that they give out. There have been incidents but I just heard about them. There is also an escort service that takes you to your dorm if you feel afraid to walk at night. they don't really take drinking games too well and will give you a ticket for jay-walking any day. i want to say 'just like any other campus" but not so sure. If anything were to happen, it would have to be where there is little to no supervision. Its big and all but nice and wherever they're is a chance to have your things stolen, staff will warn you and suggest a method to help you.

Not a Typical College Experience – Orlando is not a typical college town. This campus is convenient to everything, so you can really enjoy a complete life here, not just a college experience.

Very Diverse School, Just Like the City. I see a wide variety of diverse peoples on campus and in the classroom.

SGA is really open to student involvement and offers great branches to support the student body association. I especially like the Judicial Branch of SGA:)

Lynx bus, Knight Lynx, and shuttle buses are great for transportation

Student Conduct – Students must abide by the Golden Rule and its policies on and off campus once they are registered to the university. Rules apply in and out of state, also in other countries.

Athletic Facilities – UCF has an excellent Recreation and Wellness Center that allows students to use excellent resources for working out, playing sports, and having fun with friends

Study Tools – UCF offers a great support of supplemental instruction, teacher assistants that hold office hours and review sessions for tests, and great online classes. Students have an opportunity to excel in class by attending instructor office hours, using the resources available through webcourses and the library, and utilizing study areas such as the student union and 24 hr knight study.

The most accessible and convenient parking spaces found in the parking garages require the pricier permits. The cheapest parking permits allow you to park in the spaces further away from the campus and its classrooms. The distance is only a big issue if you are running late or truly can't stand walking to class.

Variety in Plain Site – I haven't seen as much of a diverse population outside the campus. Various cultures and religions are found along pathways near the library or student union. Though there is diversity, I don't see much interaction between people of the various backgrounds.

There is always something going on every single day of the week. You have the plaza across the street from campus, and then you have the fraternity houses that throw parties, or socials, and then there is also little get togethers at off campus housing.

I have the unlimited meal plan at UCF. I have always been a cafeteria food type girl, so I will eat anything. But otherwise the dining hall is very good. I'm in love with smoothie king and Kyoto best places on campus that has a reasonable value.

Use Common Sense – As long as you aren't stupid with the criminal stuff, the cops will mind their own business. Don't put your own picture on an I.D. and keep the party noise at a reasonable level and you'll be fine.

EVERYONE IS GREEK – Almost everyone at UCF is greek. Especially girls. For girls, you cant fit in unless you're in some sort of sorority. However, the frats throw amazing parties ALL THE TIME.

Guys & Girls:
Girls Are Cute Guys Are Big. About 80% of the girls i see on campus are average and up in physical looks. However, about 90% of the guys live in the gym. Everyone is huge! If you aren't then you'll easily get looked over.

The new parking garage isnt very good, it often gets backed up due to the fact that you can only go in one direction

Parking is awful. Always has been and always will be. We are always building a new parking lot, but there never seem to be any open spots. However, parking passes are fairly inexpensive at $40 a semester. I would recommend walking, biking, or taking a bus.

Go Knights? UCF's various sports teams are OK, but nothing special. The games are rarely full, despite being the second largest university in the nation. Football games provide a good excuse to get drunk outside on Saturdays, which can be fun.

I absolutely love UCF. I transferred to UCF after my freshman year and it is the best decision I have ever made. I belong here. UCF is my absolute dream school. The campus is beautiful and amazing, we have EVERYTHING. The people are helpful, classes and professors are great, everything is very rewarding. I have never felt more in place than at UCF.

Health & Safety:
A Safe Place – UCF takes many measures to ensure the safety of the students and faculty on campus and even off campus. Students are given several free taxi rides to prevent drunk driving accidents. Different stations with emergency call buttons are posted around campus to protect students that are in dangerous situations without a phone. I have always felt safe on campus.

Orlando has a large variety of off campus dining restaurants. UCF area has the most option for places that are close to campus. One of the most popular fast food places, Kyoto, is the best quality fast food, for a good price and good tasting restaurant style food. The cost is low for the type of food sold and there are always drink specials. Downtown Orlando has nicer restaurants, we usually go to these for special events like birthdays. Ceviche is this amazing tapas restaurant and bar, that sometimes has salsa dancing.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
