All of the good clubs are 25 minutes away in downtown Orlando

Convenience Is Key – Apollo dorms were pretty awesome because you can wake up 10 minutes before class and make it on time! Right next to the library, cafeteria, and administration office! I don't think Libra is that great. The social atmosphere is very fun and friendly. Moving in was pretty easy. Only complaint is that they kick you out of the dorms once fall exams are over until spring starts back up which is extremely annoying for students with no where else to go.

So Far So Good – Scary at first but didn't take long to learn the ropes.

I do as many classes online as I can because of the long commute I have to make to go to school. From what I see it is very obvious that many students take part in drinking. I have not seen any of it while I have been on campus. Obviously there are students who do various drugs but it is apparent that drinking is the most popular thing to do.

Live on Campus – I do not live on campus, I live at home and commute a couple times a week.

Food on Campus – The dining hall food is mediocre but inside the student union there is a nice choice of options. The only complaint is that food is fairly costly and it is easy to blow a lot of money when you spend a full day on campus.

Multiple Clubs – The variety of clubs at the University of Central Florida is exceptional. There are over 400 clubs that students can become a part of. The availability of joining the clubs are very simple and at orientation they show students where the office is to join clubs.

Popular Drinking – On football game days, tailgating and drinking is abundant. More than half of the students can be found holding an alcoholic drink.

Pre-Req Classes Are Helpful – I am in the undergraduate program at University of Central Florida, wanting to attend the College of Education and the pre-requisite classes that I have to take are helpful because I am required to get service learning hours which help you get out into the classrooms. The professors schedule face to face meetings and get to know you on a personal level, they are concerned with my progress.

Pretty Great Place – I have Had a great time here at UCF. I will be here for another two years and I really think that this is a wonderful place for people to attend. It is closer to home than other places and has a great teaching staff. I love the classes and think that other people who dont want to go to a very classy university should choose this school!

Pretty Good Place – I came to UCF as a transfer student. I was hoping to complete my program in 2 - 2 1/2 year but found that there are alot of prerequisites that I was unaware of before I made my decision. It is making the process harder but overall I am having a nice time at the college. The advisors are normally available to speak to and are fairly helpful.

I Love Elem Education! The college of education has prepared me to the best of its ability to become a successful elementary teacher. I have not had a single problem with any of my professors, and I have learned so much from each class so far that I know will be useful for my future. I am not worried about finding a job in my field since teachers are so needed and there is a great possibility to get hired at the school you intern at. Even if I do not get hired right away, I know not to worry since I will be ESOL certified as well as Reading endorsed. This means that my application will have more value than other applicants applying for the same position.

College of Edu – The college of education is great! I love the small class and how everyone is so helpful and friendly with everything. The CMC is a great resource for any education student, seeing as it allows access to so many different types of resources that we can use during internships and for various projects and activities for classes. It also serves as a great computer lab.

Many Options. There are many options near and around the UCF area. I know people who have been able to find decent priced apartments right next to campus, as well as in the surrounding areas. Avalon and Waterford are about ten-fifteen minutes away from campus and have great housing options.. they are expensive though. You do have to be careful where you decide to live since "good/safe" apartment complexes can be right next door to an unsafe one.. just research a lot before you decide on a place to live.

In my opinion the nightlife around UCF is a disgrace. The bars are dirty as can be with a ton of underage people running around. I think if you want to have a good time at a bar I'd take a further drive to downtown.

I think UCF is pretty diverse although there are a lot of white students compared to any other.

The only transportation I know is via a shuttle or driving yourself.

There is a ton of dining around UCF and all over Orlando in general. Around campus there are a few places that I know of that do student discounts if there are more then they must not do a good job of advertising it. The options around school cost wise are pretty reasonable. You can find something in your price range.

Have Yet to Become Acquainted With – Unfortunately, I have yet to really get involved in the greek scene. I have a couple of friends who are in it, but we don't discuss it in depth. It is something that interests me, but I feel as though some of the sororities are a little closed off. It's a little difficult getting to know them.

School Spirit at an All Time High – When I came to campus I initially had no interest in sports. Being here now, my attitude has completely changed. Here at UCF we have Spirit Splash once a year, and it's been rated the #1 college tradition in all of the US. This is no exaggeration. The moment hundreds, possibly thousands, of kids rush into that huge pond is something you can't even describe. Everyone feels so connected and so proud to be a knight.

Great Access to Technology – University of Central Florida has access to so many computers and printers. All computer usage is free to students, and there is a computer lab in nearly every other building. These computer labs offer affordable printing, but if you don't feel like printing there is a free printing lab sponsored by SGA in the student union. In each computer lab there is upwards of 100 computers, so it's never a problem finding one. If you have a laptop multiple wifi connections are available all over campus.

Free, Reliable Shuttles on-Campus – I am happy to say that UCF works hard to provide dependable, free shuttles for students, not just around campus but to near-campus apartments as well. It is a wonderful way for students to save on gas or decals by taking shuttles they can truly rely on.

An Overall Diverse Campus – I find UCF to have a very diverse student body. I have not noticed any situations where there was an issue with acceptance, or discrimination of any kind. In fact there are many clubs that help students with different religious, or political beliefs, as well as sexual orientation.

I applaud the campus for offering such various amenities. The athletic center is top of the line, offering a wide range of activities and equipment for whatever someone may wish to do. The library is well-equipped and extremely popular, almost too crowded. I enjoy how many activities UCF invests their time into providing for the student body, and on top of that there are over 400 clubs students can enjoy! Typically, UCF does have a few older buildings that seem to be neglecting aesthetic-attention, but that is to be expected with how fast they are developing new ones to accommodate the growing population.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
