Extremely Modern – UCF is constantly upgrading campus. I love everything about campus from the brand new arena and football stadium to the newly renovated gym. Student union and the breeze way provide pretty much everything you would need. There are also several different stores and restaurants next to the arena. Everything on campus is awesome!

There is very little pressure for students to par-take in any drug related activities. the school offers several fun drug free activities to keep students safely active. There will always be minimal peer presure, but nothing outrageous.

Greeks are treated as average students throughout the campus. The only distingishing factor would be the outfits they wear.

There are hundreds of great places to eat when you're at UCF. There are restaurants popping up all the time, all of which are affordable for students. A few offer discounts and special deals for students. The best place to check out is the waterford lakes plaza which is packed with great food.

As a student at UCF, i've hours hunting for parking spots but it takes little effort to jump on a computer anywhere on campus. Computers at UCF are always accessible due to multiple computer labs and those in the library. Some even offer free printing. In addition, they are all brand new and have easy internet access. The library even offers laptops which you can take with you anywhere in the building for up to 4 hours.

Usually Riddled With Complications. Whenever I apply for financial aid at the University of Central Florida, I have to jump through hoops to get my files processed. I have received very little financial aid, and none of it was directly from my university.

The parking spaces on campus are incredibly small in size, but not too limited in quantity. There is always somewhere to park for class, just it's usually not where you would ideally want it to be.

Professors Are Hit or Miss. Each professor at the University of Central Florida is entirely different. Some are willing to help and incredibly interested in your learning experience, and some aren't. Some professors will go above and beyond what is asked in order to give you the best education possible, and some won't. However, when you get an above average professor at this school, they are unforgettable and life-changing.

Biking Is the Best Option for Cost and Health, but Not for Safety. I recommend biking to and from campus, but with a helmet. All of my friends who drive or take the bus complain quite frequently about the cost or inconvenience, but all of the people I know who ride bikes to school save money and are generally healthier than people who don't. However, it is important to be careful riding across streets and intersections because there are reckless drivers that might hit you on your bike.

Parties Are Generally Better Than Clubs, Unless You Go Downtown. Nightlife is definitely much better for those who are 21 and over, but that is typical of all cities really. The clubs around campus that have public transportation to them are not the best, but the clubs downtown are wonderful. I recommend going to house parties over clubs near campus.

Apartments Here Tend to Be Unsafe or Overpriced. The apartments near the University of Central Florida definitely only allow for cheap and unsafe or expensive and safe. It's like putting a price on safety, and an expensive one at that. However, all of the apartments are very close to campus and do offer excellent amenities such as a pool, gym, and shuttles to and from campus.

Lots of intramural teams and teams that compete with other schools. Also we have an AMAZING gym and many fun classes that are offered there

The local atmosphere is pretty fun. There are many bars and places to eat, hang out in, shop at, etc. There are the Disney and Universal theme parks. The only problem is that you need a car to get to most places.

Top Notch Facilities – The rec center (gym) at UCF is amazing with two levels, a giant rockwall, state of the art equipment, tremills with tvs overlooking bottom level (weight floor).It also has a couple of delicious places for after a workout sesh such as Subway and Smoothie Junction. I have never seen a nicer gym before. As for the athletics, there are professional sports for every sport imaginable and also recreational teams for people just trying to have fun and get in shape.

Pre-Clinical Health Science – My major is Health sciences - pre-clinical. I love it because it's interesting, you can choose from a variety of cool classes, many of which are not only informational but also hands on. The workload is challenging but still reasonable and if you put in the effort, you can certainly obtain an excellent GPA. For example, i recently took a sports injury prevention and rehabilitation class this summer and now feel confident in my ability to alleviate and help rehabilitate many injuries. We had a great deal of hands-on experience taping various types of injuries, palpating bony structures and knowing how to recognize certain injuries.

UCF has always made all differnt cultures very welcomed on campus. theres numerous clubs you can join, and different ways to express your beliefs

Health & Safety:
Special Security Measures – Not only does UCF have their own police force stationed right on campus grounds, they also have emergency buttons located all around campus for the students use.

Bus Ride – UCF has a great bus system to dorms and inter-campus facilities

Parking Ticket! The school is obsessed with parking enforcement. If you are one day overdue on your $175 a semester parking decal you WILL get a citation by campus parking enforcement!!!!

Campus Living – The campus living appears to be above average. The only downfall is the lack of eating options for students who do not drive. Dorms look like tropical hotels!

Not enough parking spaces = nightmare. Parking garages are always closing for repair or expanding. Don't necessarily need a car on campus though because there are shuttles to most all of the off-campus apartments and if you live on-campus you can walk/bike. They hand out parking tickets here like candy so be careful where and how you park. Need to come to campus 30 minutes early to find decent parking.

Something for Everyone! With a school that has 50,000+ students enrolled there is a great nightlife. Great house parties and great greek night life. A lot of 18+ options for clubs. Of course, the 21+ clubs are better. Only 30 min away from downtown where all the action is at but there are plenty of clubs around ucf within a mile or two. Not to expensive for a cab ride or a party bus if you have 4 or 5 people. There is even great gay clubs all over Orlando!

Plenty of Choices! There are plenty of choices of off-campus housing at UCF. There are plenty of apartments to choose from. They range from luxury apartments to more student-dorm style apartments. Most of the apartments that are close to UCF have shuttles to campus. Almost all of the apartments have great amenities like pools, gyms, business centers, and club houses. Apartments aren't too expensive but another great option to cut costs is to rent a home. There are plenty of huge houses to rent around here so if you have a group of friends I'd recommend getting a house!
