Knight Worthy – The athletics at my school is great. Student involvement is always out there, they try and include you every possible way they can. School spirit, fan support, and team performance alone is an A+++! GO KNIGHTS!

People still do drugs but they keep it on the low.

The sooner you apply the better off you will be. Housing is good as long as the suitmates are responsible; however, house keeping does seem to get a bit lazy and they tend to not clean the bathroon which i do not like because I have to clean it myself. Other than that, living on campus is great.

Health & Safety:
This campus is relatively safe which is surprising because we are the 2nd largest school in the country. Well done UCF.

financial aid is very fair and they will give you what you deserve. the verification process is very long id=f you have to go through it. but other than that our financial aid process is good

Drugs on Campus – people smoke cigarretes all over campus. people drink only at tailgating. but other than that there are no drugs on campus

Campus Safety – i always feel safe on campus, even when walking around at night. there is even an escort service provided after 7pm to help students get around campus safely.

Drugs Are Bad – There really isn't much of a viable drug scene from my perspective. Law enforcement has done a great job with the school to get underage drinking and drug use out of the campus.

Not Very Healthy – UCF offers a wide variety of activities and amusement; however, off campus dinning is very narrow, and not very health conscious. There are very few vegetarian/vegan options, and too many fast food establishments.

Great Location – UCF is located in the heart of a bustling town, close to local restaurants, theme parks, and recreation centers.

Great labs and Computer Store – There are a lot of labs and printing stations on campus with more opening up. The Computer Store - http://cstore.ucf.edu is also great for discounted prices on software.

The Police Department on campus does a great job with the safety of my University.

I don't live on campus but UCF offers everything at your fingertips. Parking spots are hard to come by during certain times and being able to have plenty of options as far as food goes is very helpful.

The campus security at my University is excellent. We often recieve UCF Alerts through email/text. I love how they inform me about whats going on at the school and around campus.

No Pressure – Drinking is a popular activity. There are a lot of local bars that cater specifically to college students. But if its not something you want to be a part of, you can definitely stay away from it.

School Spirit – While our sport teams may not be the BEST, our fans are. If you arrive to tailgating later than 8 AM, there's no way you're going to find a spot near the stadium. The basketball arena is always full! Even the intramural sports have a large following!

There are a ton of different options of apartments to live in off-campus, but you definitely pay for the locations. The further away from campus, the less expensive your apartment is going to be.

Drugs Don't Live Here, Anymore. UCF doesn't seem to have a drug problem, but I am sure there is always a way to get your hands on it. Drinking appears to be more of a dominant hobby.

I Don't Know – I don't know much about the Greek life except that in the beginning of the semester there was a party where a minor was served alcohol and died from alcohol poisoning.

Orlando Is Fun – there's a lot of great things to do on and off campus that are safe and fun

the computer and printing labs on campus are very reliable

Summer Is Ridiculously Hot – Be prepared to sweat. A lot. Not sure how cold it gets in the winter as this is my first semester. If you're taking summer classes or starting in fall, bring a lot of tank tops and shorts. Flip flops are a must. Also ALWAYS bring an umbrella with you as it tends to rain almost every day at unexpected times.

As a freshman, expect to take weak classes in large lecture halls with professors who simply don't care. Many graduate students teach large lecture halls without anyone overseeing the class. Most classes have large online components. Very few students attend lecture halls and many seem to not care about their education at all. That's probably why people say UCF stands for U Can't Finish..

All Clubs – If you don't like clubbing, don't expect to do much at night. As someone who isn't a partier and doesn't drink or smoke, it's very hard finding other alternatives. I usually end up playing board games with my friends. Not much to do if you're underage or don't have a car or can't afford to go clubbing all the time.

You have to apply to be in the Radio/TV major, and you can't apply until you meet certain requirements. Most other schools aren't like this. Furthermore, only GPA is considered for admission, not skill or experience. You may not submit a resume or portfolio. And you can't use any of the resources such as equipment until you are admitted into the major, which hinders your ability to work on your skill or build your portfolio while waiting to apply for the major.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
