The Social Life – Everyone is so welcoming at UCF, without hesitation people will quickly talk to you, unlike in other places and school's i've been to where people stick to themselves

UCF offers a lot of diverse choices when it comes to food. They've basically created an environment where you never feel the need to leave campus to get a healthy and delicious meal. I love Subway's on campus.

The University of Central Florida offers multiple internships to help students branch out and get experience in there selected fields of study. The film program at UCF is amazing and is going to teach me the important things I need to know to be a film/movie maker. I'm extremely happy I was accpeted by UCF to begin this program. Success definitely lies ahead.

College Town Central – Its a big tourist town because of Disney and Universal but its also got a great college atmosphere near the school.

I have been at the school for a number of years now and have enjoyed every minute of it. The university offers such great ammenities to students. Our state-of-the-art gym is amazing and offers plenty of activities. UCF has such a great variety of clubs and programs offered to students as well. My favorite experiences would have to be intramurial sports which are amazing at UCF. I would chose this school again in a heartbeat if I had to do it all over again.

The Greek life at UCF is very involved. Greek week is a big event at the beginning of every semester and students seem to really enjoy is. There is an entire street on campus designated for all the Greek houses. The houses are very nice! Greek students are viewed just like any other student.

There are many places to dine off campus that are fun and affordable. There is a street about 5 miles long right outside the university that is full of great restaurants. These restaurants usually offer a student discount as well. Some of the restaurants near by include: Applebees, World of Beer, Firehouse Subs, McDonalds, Broadway Pizzeria, Jimmy Johns, Tilted Kilt, Red Lobster, Ale House, TGIFridays, Smokey Bones,
California Pizza Kitchen, Olive Garden, Chilis, and many more. Most of the restaurants are in walking distance or there is public transportation at every corner. GREAT area for off-campus dinding.

Guys & Girls:
Diverse Group of People – Being in Central Florida people come from all over; therefore there are all walks of life on campus. The guys come in a ll sorts: city boys, fraternity guys, skaters, surfers, and studious guys. The girls are all different as well, just like the guys there is a variety of types.

Don't Really See It – I don't hang around anyone that drinks or smoke, so I don't really see it. But I have heard of people getting together off campus to smoke. And others coming back drunk. These were rare instances though.

Mostly Caucasian – Over half of the students on campus are Caucasian. But there are other races such as Spanish, Asian, Africa-American, etc. I haven't seen any cases of discrimination, but I hear that the police are stereotypical.

Labs Are Crowded at Midterms and Finals. The computer labs are nice. There's a free printing lab that has all the latest applications like Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, etc. However, near midterms and finals, there is a 30 minute or more wait to use the computers.

Parking on campus can be a nightmare. Be sure to get to campus at least 30 minutes before your class to ensure you'll get a space and make it to class on time.

There is a lot to do around campus plenty of bars to choose from.

Shuttles Around Campus – There is a number we can call at any time of any day and someone in a shuttle will pick us up and take us wherever we need to go.

The cost off-campus housing is definitely appropriate for the accommodations given in that housing. Most come fully furnished. The furnishings are always nice.

Professors Involved With Academic Success of Students – Most of the professors I have encountered have been extremely concerned with their student's understand of the course material. They do what they can to ensure their students success in the classroom.

Health & Safety:
It Is Quite Safe. It is helpful that there are individuals patrolling around campus at night time, along with the need to have an ID or a key to enter many of the buildings. I feel safe whenever I'm on campus due to the fact that there are many other students walking around in the day time, buildings are secure, and there are also security cameras.

The Sunshine State – The weather greatly affects my experience, because I never have to worry about it being too cold to walk to class. I've attended all my classes in the winter, and get to wear cuter clothes doing so :)

School Spirit – I believe our school is very spirited when it comes to football games and basketball games, but when it comes to other sports, it's as if they don't really exist. People get decked out in black and gold for tailgate, but when it comes to a soccer game people don't even know there is one.

Great School – I love the school I attend. They have several campuses available in different counties. There are many extracurricular activities available for students. I mostly enjoy going to student union because there is always something entertaining going on!

Great Dining – There is a large selection of food vendors in the food court. You don't really worry about eating the same thing everyday because of the variety.

Psych Major Review – The instuctors are very knowledgable about the material they teach. There are many research and intern opportunities available for students to gain additional experience in their selected careers. The professors are not only there to teach but to provide students with a great learning experience.

Overall transportation isnt bad if you can catch a shuttle, but do to the vast amount of students at UCF, if you plan on driving your own car you must leave atleast one hour before your class starts in hopes of finding a parking spot. Cost of a permitt is ridiculous, your best bet is to take a shuttle or car pool.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
