Night Life – There are some bars/clubs around and I do believe that they serve underage sometimes. I am not a big club person so I do not know that much about them. I went once to a club and hated it. UCF does offer transportation I believe from clubs to dorms.

I think UCF has a lot of off-campus housing but you don't have to be a student so I feel that there isn't that much for actually students there but they do offer a bus from campus to the off-campus apartment complexes.

Some Confusion – I had to enroll as a transient student for a couple classes and there was some confusion in the process of applying that was very frustrating.

There are many opportunities to go for at UCF and many need to start working towards these.
College Senior 2011-12-30T18:55:51Z
The clubs surrounding UCF consist mostly of Frat guys and young college students.

Drinking, for the Most Part – UCF is very strict about their drug policy on campus, especially if you're living in the dorms. It depends on who you hang out with to say how popular it is. Drinking is definitely the most popular and there are several bars within walking distance of the campus.

Housing Galore – There are plenty of off campus apartments and housing options around UCF and they are geared towards students. I would say the cheapest way to go, however, is living in a house with roommates.

Everything You Ever Wanted – There are plenty of places to eat on campus that you would never have to leave it. They have a little bit of everything from a buffet place, to pizza, to frozen yogurt. Of course they have plenty of places off campus as well. The best ones I would say are unique to UCF and are definite hang out places.

O-Town Night Life – Orlando has a vast variety of night life. There is always something going out every day of the week. You could keep it local and go a couple minutes from campus to the UCF bars, or you could jump on 1-4 and go to the downtown night clubs. If you travel even further, you could spend an evening at CityWalk or Downtown Disney. There is always fun in Orlando!

Knight Pride – Our school has so much school spirit. You'd be blown away by all of the dedicated fans at the football and basketball games. It makes for an exciting experience! Our teams' performances are very high as well! Most of our teams are ranked.

I absolutely LOVE UCF's Rec & Wellness center. It's huge, with a variety of things to do, and is definately a great way to attract the students to work out. It even has a rock climbing wall which is very popular. Not only is the building great, but they offer a wide variety of intramural sports as well. I play both soccer and flag football. Along with the gym, all of the other buildings such as the student union, library, and arena are beautiful and newly renovated.

Receiving financial aid through the University of Central Florida's processes was pretty simple. All of your "awards" go into an account and is dispersed within a couple weeks of the semester. I had no problems gathering and accepting the financial aid I was deserved. As with all things, improvements can be mad though.

Sports are pretty important at the University of Central Florida. Whether we have an amazing record or are struggling with the season, school spirit and moral stays high. We have a wide variety of intramural sports which allows the most novice athletes the chance at organized competition. We also have a newly renovated stadium!

Health & Safety:
Generally Safe – I have never felt safe at any school due to the violent crimes increasing year after year. It is a big, beautiful, safe place to be. I go to the gym regularly and do not use a lock on my locker and none of my possessions are ever missing. To be safe, look up your belongings and always keep an eye on your stuff. Campus security is everywhere and can be found at almost every corner.

Engineering Professors – I have attended UCF for one semester and so far all of my professors have been quite helpful. I have had experiences with teachers at my prior school that didn't care very much about their students. UCF professors thus far have exceeded my expectations. Don't get me wrong, the coursework for an engineering student can be extremely intimidating, but it if you stick your nose to the grindstone there really isn't any problem.

Every Student's Dream – Orlando has everything a person could ask for. I am originally from California, and my hometown was two hours away from anything fun. Here, you have four theme parks in one city; along with many other attractions including mini golf, theaters, amazing malls, and who can forget a short, half hour drive to the beach. UCF may be a school that is all about studying, but the surrounding city is always there to help my fellow college classmates when we need some much needed downtime.

I can't say much about Greek liife because i live off campus, but I hear it is amazing. They always have parties, and enjoy hanging out with one another.

Usually there are always things going on. For example during christmas they have light up UCF, an ice skatingrink and so much more.

Off Campusdining Options – I love how The University Of Central Florida has so many choices not only on campus, but they also have great choices for off - campus. A few choices i enjoy are Starbucks, Lazy Moon Pizza, MacDonals, Giovanni's Pizza, Wendys, Pita Pit, and the list goes on and one. I have attended another college before this one and i must say UCF is in a great location that gives many resonable priced food choices.

Guys & Girls:
Eager to Make a Friend? What I love most about the people on campus is how willing and eager everyone is to make friends. Whether in a small lab or a large lecture, I always seem to make a quick friend based on a common interest or viewpoint.

The new rec center facilities are amazing. They offer everything you would expect at a top of the line, high priced fitness facility from lap pools and racquetball courts to spinning classes and massages, for only $10 a year! All equipment is practically new, if not, brand new and state of the art. No expense was spared in creating this "fitness mecca" and its long hours of operation make it easy to sneak in a jog between classes or indulge in a midnight yoga class after work. All in all this new gym is MIND BLOWING!

Living Off Campus – Apartments off campus are really expensive. The price of the apartments would seem far more acceptable if the price came with quality. However it seems to be that the higher the price the smaller the living space. Most of the communities are safe and the crime is not so bad.

Dining Off Campus – The restaurants off campus are well known and offer students a diverse options as to the type of food they want to eat. One of the most common places is McDonald of course because of the lower prices. Most of the places we have to dine out at are fast food but it is accepted by the student population mostly because it is very affordable.

Drinking and Drugs Common – Drinking and drug use is very prevalent throughout the school. Drug use seems to be limited mostly to marijuana not hard drugs.

The facilities that are built are amazing and top of the line since they are so new. The gym, library, and 24 hour study area have all the newest features. The downside is that the campus feels like it is Under Construction Forever (UCF alternate abbreviation).
Sorry, there are no reviews.
