Campus Life – UCF has to be one of the most beautiful campus on the US. It is extremely big and they provide so many things that you don't want to leave the campus once you're there. The recreational center is the place to be, you will find everything you need there; our library is just amazing. Go UCF

Private Transport – Most students at UCF have a car. The public transportation takes so long that you'll never make it on time. As for the shuttle, if you live by the school, it can help. But your best option is your own car

No Better Place Than Chick Fil-A – The first time i went to the university of central florida, known to most of us as UCF, i felt like i was at the food court at a mall. There were so many restaurants nearby the school that if you were to pick a restaurant to eat everyday for the time you're at the school, you'd never run out of places to go. But my favorite one is Chick-fil-A, besides their wonderful tasty chicken, they have an amazing milkshake that comes every summer. Well i'm probably biased since i loved them, but there are other and cheaper places like mcdonald, wendy's, steak and shake. i guess you cannot go wrong because the campus itself is full of amazing places you can.

No Drug Related Activities Seen – I have not seen any drug related activities since I go to UCF other than smoking.

Lots of Restaurants – There are a great number of good restaurants around UCF area. Sometimes you don't even know which restaurant you should go to because most of them are so good. My favorite place is Panera Bread. My group and I usually spend a lot of time here discussing our school work and projects while eating some good meals at the same time. We have had a good time there. The prices at the restaurants around UCF area are fairly good for students.

Variety of Food and Dining Options – There are a lot of different dining and food options around the campus. Students will not have to wonder what they want to eat today. However, sometimes the lines get too long that many students are not patient enough to wait to their turns, especially when they are in a hurry or having a class in 20-25 minutes or so. Overall, UCF Student Union is a good place to spend time eating and hanging out with your friends.

Buses Are Amazing – Most of the off campus apartments have a shuttle that runs every 10 to 15 minutes to take you to and from school. Its the best way to get around. Never have to worry about parking or forgetting where you parked your car. Tottaly recommend taking the shuttles

parking here is tough. you better get here on time or be late to class

nice florida atmosphere, but some college professors cant teach as well as community college professors. they only read off powerpoint slides and some cant speak proper english. they can be hard to understand and that will be detrimental to you grades. you basically learn everything by yourself here and go to lectures to be graded for attendance or here whats going to be on the tests.

Nothing Extravagent – UCF has an eloquent campus with many top of the line facilities but the overall feel that comes from the student population is the "this place is not all that great" feeling.

Athletic Center Is Amazing – One of the most recognized aspects of the campus would definitely be the gym which probably has 200 machines for people to work out on. there is also a constant staff at every part of the gym, making sure everything is safe and working properly.

Health & Safety:
Campus Security Measures – One of the things i find very effective is how whenever there is criminal suspicion on campus, an e-mail dispatch is sent out to all students to be aware. In general, there are always security staff working at all times of day, they even can pick you up at night around campus if you aren't feeling safe.

Of course we have over 50,000 students, but the parking garages are always full and you always will get a ticket if you illegally park. If you live on campus, you totally don't need a car.

The amount of low costs places in the Central Florida area is abundant. Student discounts aren't around too often and the best places to check out is Waterford Lakes.

Pretty Strait Forward. I never push the barrier and never have any issues.

Not for Me. I don't get involved in the late night scene...I get much more enjoyment from sleep and dreams.

Guidance counselors are not always the best. It's easier to find things out on your own.

Hot and Muggy – It can be really nice during the year, but on average it is hot and muggy. Very humid nasty weather.

The permit is quite expensive and at the beginning of the semester there is no parking spots, youmay have to walk a couple miles if your not at school by 9, then it gets better as people drop classes or stop attending

Night Life – there's Many bars and good restaurants around, but nothing too good
College Senior 2011-10-28T06:39:27Z
I try to keep my meals on the healthy side, And that is why i love The fact that Ucf has 3 subways. I also tent to grab a salad at either mrs fields or the salad bar at the SU. However, i feel like those are the only options for healthy food while ucf has countless unhealthy places. I would actually like to see something more restaurant type place, somewhere where I can get a stake or a chicken breast with broccoli or asparagus.

Guys & Girls:
There are tons of students and many options for friends. Classes are huge so there are many options also for study groups.

The computers are great and there are plenty. Access to the computers are great also and the speed is perfect. The printing labs are great but always packed.

The financial aid office is often crowded but they are quite helpful. The only problem is that we get most of our information at the beginning of the semester and towards the end we have forgotten it all.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
