Alafya Trial Is the BEST!!! There is a great variety of restaurants around campus, especially on Alafya Trial, the street located right next to the school. You can find any restaurant with any type of foo that you may be craving for. And everything is so CHEAP!!! Amazing for students on a budget.

Drinking Is Popular – I mostly stayed off campus so the drug scene is one I don't know about, but from an off campus-er, its not a problem. The university is not a dry-campus, but there isn't a problem with alcohol being allowed.

Great Dining Off-Campus – There are numerous places to eat off campus right across the street. They are all college cost friends to students, most have free wi-fi for studying while eating. The variety of different places to eat is versatile as well.

Not Terrible – Drinking can get you in trouble but generally if you don't make a huge deal or act clearly drunk you should be okay. You have less trouble drinking off-campus but keep in mind that the university's police department has a 5 mile jurisdiction around the campus in any given direction. They are very serious about traffic infractions so speeding, texting and driving, and running red lights are heavily fined.

There are several apartment complexes on the shuttle route to and from campus. The rates generally include utilities which is nice. The best part is there are more apartments going up very close to campus too which will make finding an apartment even easier.

Busy, Busy, Busy – There is so much to do around campus. Being close to 3 different theme parks and several malls and tourist attractions affords students a practically endless supply of activities. There are monthly events on campus that are always fun experiences. There are always games on the intramural fields that allow students to participate in a range of different sports and there are always games to go to and enjoy.

Guys & Girls:
In General, Guys and Girls – Most of the guys are into longboarding. Most are fit especially since I live near the gym. Most are pretty chill. Otherwise the other ones are nerdy looking, but they are nice. The girls vary. Most are attractive. They are sweet. Most are smart. I hang with the crowd that likes to hookah, and they are pretty chill.

Nursing at Nike – For my major, I am in a special program for nursing where about thirty-six of us live in a living learning community. The first semester consisted of sharing an sls class. It has been the best experience and inspiration to succeed in my major.

The Non-Stop Booze Bus – University of Central Florida really cares about it's students and their safety. They know students are going to drink and rather the kids that live on campus not drink and drive. They do have a bus that runs till 3 a.m., picking up students from the hottest bars and night clubs to bring them back to campus safely.

The University of Central Florida is full of accepting people. Being in one of the top five homosexual cities, UCF has a lot of transgendered, transsexual, and homosexual people on campus. None of them are disrespected or get bullied. Everyone is very accepting of one another.

Computer Access – They're are usually many that are accessible for students, but I don't really use them since I have my own. You have a way of knowing when computers are in use and where empty computers are available in the library. The library has five floors of access for computers.Sometimes using them isn't that quiet though.

The Wonderful Student Union – The Student Union at the University of Central Florida is amazing. It has all the information a student would ever need about school in the the union. There are places to eat, a printing lab, an information room, and student government. If you're ever lost, the Student Union is a great place to go.

Love the Sun – Most of the time the weather is great. Sometimes a thunderstorm will annoy you. but its perfect most of the time.

Good but Needs More – The campus food was alright; however there were not many options. The school doesn't have many varieties to choose from unless one wants fast food. I would like to see a healthier option and at least a vegetarian option.

Food and Dining – I honestly haven't had the chance to do a lot of dining on campus. Though, from what I've seen walking through dining and snack areas, they seem to have a very nice variety of food items to choose from.

Plenty to Choose from – There are plenty of restaurants and cafes within a few miles of campus. Zaxby's is probably my favorite.

Strictness Is Beneficial to Students' Academics – Laws are laws and they are there for a reason. I feel that UCF does a great job at making sure students follow the rules about underage drinking. Students who drink underage and spend most of their time drinking rather than studying will end up being put on academic probation. It is best to follow the rules and do well in school while still having fun the legal way.

Sports Events Are Exciting – I do not participate in sports teams however, I attend the events and they are exciting and fun. So many students come out, enjoy, and cheer on our university with so much school spirit. It is a very fun and exciting time.

Labs Are Very Reliable but Crowded – The computer labs are great on network reliability and speed however, the labs can fill up pretty quickly and at times it can be too loud due to students working on group projects. I prefer to have my own computer.

It's Random. Florida: Known as the state of every changing weather. Most of the time it's hot here, so make sure to own several pairs of shorts. However, the weather is random. It will rain at least once every day in the summer and even at random times any other day of the year. It won't even show up on the radar. Hurricanes are bad, but there is tons of ways to be safe and protected from harm during a hurricane, so don't ever worry about that.

Food, Food Everywhere! Almost every restaurant imaginable is around the Orlando area. Living off campus myself, I find it easy to find food options for anything I'm craving. The one thing I'm sad about is that there is no Whataburger in the Central Florida area (it's my favorite place!) but hopefully they'll bring it back again soon! Food is reasonable and discounts exist if you look around for them.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
