Greek Park – Within Greek Park life is extravagent in a manner exceeding the social life. Through philanthropic events held nearly each weekend as well as the myriad of service events the greek community portrays true passion for the goodness of Orlando's greater community. Although non-greek students see only the social and party aspect of the greek community, the sisterhoods and brotherhoods developed in the forever bonding expreience of ritual and tradition are hid admist infamous nights. UCF has little support for its greek communtity and is a minority in comparision to the overwhelming number of admitted students. Within the greek community everlasting friendship, and career opportunities continue to prosper in its efforts to grasp the traditions and ideals of its founders.

Non Greek – Coming from a non Greek, Greek life really doesn't mean much to me at all. It doesn't take over the campus or anything, but there's plenty there if you wish to join.

Here in Orlando where UCF is located there is ALWAYS something to do. There are so many great restaurants, bars, and clubs to go to downtown or just down the street. There's always something going on on campus, too.

Health & Safety:
Safety on Campus – UCF takes precautions to keep its students safe such as having well lit walkways and alarms that students can press along walkways in case something bad were to ever happen. There are campus police all around, which make me feel even safer. I personally have never felt unsafe on UCF's campus.

Excellent Social Scene – UCF is unique to other schools due to it being just outside a major US tourist hub. When students have down time, they are just minutes from Disney. Not many schools can say that.

Very Diverse – At each class I have taken at UCF it has been a culturally diverse classroom with students and professors alike being of different ethnic backgrounds.

Future Internship – I plan on having an intership maybe next year. I really want the experience but I'm just not sure where to find one

There are never enough spots in the garages during the day and the parking police are extremely strict!

There isn't much to do around the UCF area. Mainly just bars, food and shopping. It'd be nice if there was more activities for broke college kids but otherwise it's a really fun town

The weather here is nice. It is very hot in the summers and very cold in the winters. Some days there is a nice breeze and it is a very comfortable temperature out. It likes to rain at random times during the day which makes it hard to get to class sometimes.

Health & Safety:
I feel as though the grounds could be a little safe. Night clases are dangerous because vending machines, cars, and local apartments are broken into often. Also the parking garages do not seem safe.

University of Central Florida is in a great location. The students are able to keep busy with local hangouts, clubs, malls, etc. The school is also near many theme parks such as Universal and Disney. Students are able to find employment due to the busy surroundings.

UCF has great students who have grown to accept students from all cultures and races. Although I feel comfortable here with students of any race, I have encountered some students who seem to not have that under control yet. UCF should try and do more to help build the love for diversity.

UCF is a great school with a really professional staff. The only issue with the school is that due to its size is somehow difficult to have a more personalized experience during class. I am enrolled in the engineering program, and it is very challenging, and therefore I think that it is worth it to get a degree from this distinguish school. I am proud to be a UCF student.

Central Florida has an amazing weather; we do not have stations here so pretty much, the weather does not affect the campus experience.

Tons of People – The University of Central Florida has a wide variety of students due to its size. Nothing has happened to me in the few semesters that I have been there, but I have heard a few rumor about vandalism in the parking lots, such us people scratching cars. And some unacceptable behaviors in the campus.

Money Is a B**** – Getting money was quite simple, just fill our a FAFSA, and the school does the rest. Bright Futures and loans make up my financial aid, and they are great, but it always seems as though I never have enough money for all of the expenses and the books I need.

The weather in Central Florida is absolutely beautiful. The nice cool winter months is a great break from the warmer summer and spring months, and the rain doesn't really intrude if you have a good umbrella.

Housing in Nike – I absolutely hated living here. I made no friends whatsoever. The room was small, I didn't like my roommate, and it seemed to be the furthest from the center of the campus, or at least all of my classes, than all of the other dorms.

Growing Fast! The university is the second largest university in the nation. A couple of years ago we didn't even make the top 10. There are a lot of opportunities here and the programs keep getting better and recognized by other universities.
