I can honestly say my school comprised of a variety of different religions, races, and ethnic groups which creates a diverse student body.

my process of getting into my major was fairly easy, i just didn't like that they teach mostly on sales and forget the creative aspect of marketing, plus getting college credit approved from the college from your internship is pretty difficult
College Senior 2013-10-28T03:43:08Z
As a marketing major, in orlando the opportunities are abundant. great city to connect with people and find internships especially in sales, entertainment and hospitality. I learn a lot about my field. Time commitment is flexible and responsibilities are abundant but that is a great thing.

With all universities, UCF has a standard that must be met. Requiring good grades is a must, but also maintaining academic integrity and honesty is just as important. The professors are readily available to aid their students and the workload has yet to be too overwhelming.

The parking at UCF is convenient to me, being a commuter student. Many of the parking lots and garages are available to me at all times, however during the busier hours of the day it can become difficult to find an open spot.

Health & Safety:
I have always felt very secure on campus, whatever the situation at hand I feel confident in the on-campus security; I especially find comfort in the easily accessible help stations around campus.

I have recently changed my major to Art History, but with my past major of Exercise Sciences I had a very good experience both inside and out of the classroom. We were provided with in-numeral opportunities to participate in laboratory studies for the athletic department and convenient access to our "wellness center". Classes were thorough in the material presented yet still engaging for the students. Many of my teachers have been involved in sports or exercise sciences for quite a few years, passing on their wisdom and experience to the students.

Parking sucks. If you leave any garage in between 9-11 and come back after, you're not going to find a spot. They're building a new garage for Academic VIllage so hopefully that'll help the congestion.
College Freshman 2013-10-28T00:55:11Z
Definitely some of the best. Library, Pub, and Madhatters are the places to be and are poppin' almost every day of the week. Some times they can get a little nasty, but that's for every bar. I have never been downtown before, but I hear there is a party bus that comes and picks people up near Academic Village on Friday/Saturday nights. Something to look into. But there are options that are GOOD nearby. Not within walking distance of campus though :(
College Freshman 2013-10-28T00:53:58Z
I am involved in greek life and LOVE it. There is definitely a sense of community and involvement once you are "in" and it is the best feeling ever. I can already feel myself developing into the woman I want to be thanks to my sorority. You get to meet so many different people and network and it's extremely useful/looks good on resumes when applying for jobs and internships. Lots of opportunities for leadership positions. I definitely recommend EVERYONE to rush even if they are unsure.

I live in Nike right now and it's really not too bad. My roommate moved out so I have the whole room to myself for the rest of the semester, score. Even when there was two people there was enough room, but hopefully you like your roommate because it can get a little close at times. I would def recommend using the roomsurf.com site. That's how I found my roommate.
College Freshman 2013-10-28T00:51:30Z
Athletics are up and coming. Football is moving on up especially since we're ranked now. More students are coming out to the game to support and it's really nice. As for other sports, I have no idea.
College Freshman 2013-10-28T00:50:48Z
The classes I'm taking right now are tough. I came into UCF as a freshman with no dual enrollment/AP/IB credits and a Bio major. That definitely didn't help. I don't recommend taking both Bio/Chem at the same time, even if you are a Bio major. It's tough. And the Chem professor is extremely hard to understand (Patino). The Math MALL is probably the worst spent 3 hours of my life, so look forward to that if you're taking college algebra, trig, precalc, etc.
College Senior 2013-10-27T11:23:04Z
Parking on campus is fine for me. I find a space and it is close to the education building. Also, I go early mornings so that helps.
College Junior 2013-10-26T20:20:07Z
UCF is not different from most colleges. Like most colleges, it contains the same kind of courses, students, and advocacy programs.
College Junior 2013-10-26T20:16:46Z
UCF's facilities are state-of-the-art, overall. The student union is always lively, innovative, and providing the services we all need. Most of UCF's computers are fairly up-to-date. The campus has plenty of green spaces for students (especially me) to just relax and get away from it all. The UCF arena is always hosting an event whether it's a game, a concert, or a comedy act. And Volunteer UCF is always looking for ways to get students to participate in the outside world and think outside themselves.
College Junior 2013-10-26T20:09:46Z
Guys & Girls:
Of course, appearance is subjective, but I would say that UCF's students and staff look okay overall. UCF's alumni seems to be interested in a wide variety of subjects ranging from engineering to nursing to business administration. Students are always looking for ways to get involved, of which my favorite is Volunteer UCF, for which I have completed nearly 70 hours right now as I am writing this. And relationships are inevitable. It seems as though there is one in every corner. UCF is strongly advocating for LGBTs to be not only tolerated, but loved.
College Junior 2013-10-26T20:02:39Z
UCF provides a variety of dining services. It's cafeteria (Kinghtro's) hires only top-quality chefs and staff, its food contains fresh ingredients and is prepared with all necessary cautions, and the tables and floors are usually clean. UCF also features a wide variety of popular food joints such as Subway, Asian Chao, Qdoba, and Jimmy John's.
College Junior 2013-10-26T16:55:37Z
It is an awesome program
College Junior 2013-10-26T16:49:57Z
Everyone is very helpful and guide you through the program

When I lived in housing just off campus, I had a car. There was a shuttle that ran fairly regularly to the campus that I used for classes, but to go grocery shopping or to get to off campus restaurants or see the city, the car was pretty necessary.

I lived in several areas of on-campus housing and had friends who lived in the others. The Towers are currently the best and of course the most expensive. They just opened new housing across the street from UCF which is also nice and pricey. The residence halls are small so don't think you'll be having your friends spend the night there without being all up in your roommate's personal space - you'll have to try the UCF apartments if you want your own room.
It's SO convenient to be able to roll out of bed and run to class, however UCF is humongous, so your class could still be a 15 minute run away, depending on where you live on campus and what your major is.

Really, the drinking happens in off-campus housing, usually in the cheaper complexes where there's less supervision [and less security, so put trackers on your laptops and stereos]. There are plenty of students who are all for 'legalizing marijuana'; they have a club, and you can kind of guess they probably partake regardless of the law. Really, UCF has so many extracurriculars, most people just join those to fulfill social needs. There's a club for almost anything you can think of, and they try to stay involved in academics at times just so it will look good on resumes; for that reason they don't typically have issues with members doing drugs or getting drunk. I hear even the sororities and frats are strict on their drinking policies.
Recent Alumnus 2013-10-24T22:10:01Z
Some may have seen that recently there was almost a shooting at the on-campus student housing back in March. UCF is such a large school that one might think students will simply fly under the radar, however security has been more present and UCF has strengthened its arm against breaches of policy. I lived in on-campus house before the event that put UCF on CNN, and even then there were eyes on all students. Alcohol was strictly prohibited due to the fact that there freshman who were underage who would have access if others brought it. If you want to drink, you'll have to do it somewhere else because dorm rooms get surprise check ups and if they smell alcohol you're dead in the water, so-to-speak.
Also, NEVER park without a pass; UCF PD will nail your car with a ticket before you have a chance to take the key out of the ignition. They're notorious for giving parking tickets. The price isn't terrible compared to other schools but just buy a parking permit, or ride the free shuttles.

Can be really hot when you don't want it to be and can feel uncomfortable if you are not use to it.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
