Seem Nice. I have been put to live in Libra in the fall and from the pictures and reviews I have read they seem to be a great option for people on a budget. That's me. I am excited about living on campus and all I have heard is great things.

All of the services offered on campus are great. I can print up to 20 pages a day for free, I get a free scan tron everyday, the wireless is great, I haven't visited a computer lab because I have my own but thus far everything has been amazing.

UCF has a unique transportation system. They have something called UCF shuttles, these shuttle are always around campus. They are absolutely free. You rarely see long-distance transportation for off-campus.

UCF hires the best professors in the nation. They are so interactive and helpful. The curriculum is not so easy, however, if you study frequently, you can get at least a B easily. The registration is pretty easy, everything you want do is available on an online resource called myucf. There is a huge amount of work to do, but at the same time you have a huge time to have fun. The library is a popular study.

I personally believed i wouldn't like UCF because of how big it is. However, as my school experience progressed I began to see how wrong I was. The University might be huge but it welcomes each and every student and makes them feel part of the UCF family. I love this school and honestly, I'm glad I didn't let my first impression scare me away.

UCF is a very big school, the greek life affects those who are actively involved in it.

Most of the dining around campus are well known food chains that are convenient and easy to locate. However, I feel there are too many fast food joints. I would personally like a few more healthy options around school.

Clubs Are Close – The clubs are very close and are within walking distance. You can just walk back home after.

Help Is Around the Corner – The professors are willing to help everyone. If extra help is needed then the labs offer tutoring. The focus is for every stuent to succeed.

Surprisingly Very Reasonable – There is a wider range of choices for off-campus housing. The rates are very reasonable and the area is warm and nice.

Homes Are Plentiful! While finding off-campus housing is typically an inconvenience in most places, in Orlando we boast the various options we have. Since it is not just a rural area, we have plentiful apartments and houses to choose from. Living is not expensive, especially if you choose to live with roommates, and rent usually includes all utilities (food, electric, water, internet, and cable). There are also many apartments in construction for future students.

I have never had a professor at University of Central Florida that has been less than motivating and inspiring to my field. I typically have difficulty choosing which classes to take because I end up wanting to take them all! We have professors that come from varying fields and backgrounds so curriculums are usually exceptionally broad, specially because it is a research university. Registration processes are done online unless you choose to do it with a counselor. The special study options are many - particularly study abroad of which we have many programs for all areas. I would have to say that our most common majors are Business and Engineering.

Mickey Mouse Is Not the Only Orlando Resident – The local atmosphere in the vicinity of University of Central Florida is a multi-cultural experience, reminiscent of the touristic attractions that are so close by. With things like Disney World, SeaWorld, and Universal 30 minutes away from campus, it is difficult to find yourself at a loss for things to do. However, closer to campus we have things like the Enzian, which is an indie theatre, catering to specialized films and those interested; Natura, a bar where you can indulge in boba tea, hookah, and study-time at the same time; and numerous bars and food-study places that cater specifically to University of Central Florida student life and events as well as providing discounts with a student ID. Students also have Waterford Lakes close by, as well as international malls such as Florida Mall and Mall at Millenia, where many students can find jobs that understand their busy class schedules. In addition, there is a lively downtown area in the heart of Orlando 10 minutes away and the new Amway Arena that holds incredible concerts and basketball games for the Orlando Magic. It truly is a wonderful place to live.

Sunny MOST of the Year – For most of the year the weather is perfect. 80% of the year the conditions are perfect for the pool or the beach. In the winter, it gets really cold but not unbearable. Unfortunately, being in the center of Florida we do get our weeks of heavy rain.

Parties EVERYDAY – Around the UCF area there's always a reason to go out and party. Around the campus we have a few 18 and up clubs and bars. If you go downtown it's mostly 21 and up with a few clubs as an exception. House parties are a regular weekend event.

Guys & Girls:
Everything for Everybody – We are known for having one of the most beautiful people at UCF. On top of that we have every type of guy or girl for any type of guy and girl. The diversity makes you feel like you're swimming in a beautiful pool of options.

The greek life at my school is pretty cool, they ususally have these parties and organizations to bring in new people to join and there are diffrent types of greek housing that are available for students who want to experience something new.

Best Places to Check Out – I would most likely say, that the best places to visit would be disney world, because orlando is a place of tourists.

a student will never feel alone at the second largest institution in the USA; UCF has 56000 students and growing, so some can always find a new friend

ranging from campus police to academics, UCF has very strict policies when it comes to grades, drinking, drugs, and even speeding and illegally crossing a street

Athletic Facilities – having recently expanded their athletic/gym facility, i would say it is top notch and flat out amazing with a 45 foot indoor rock climbing wall, heated lap pools and other general work out spaces

I couldnt afford to move out and so as a result, I have to drive 20-30 mins everyday to get to school. I wouldnt say that I have had a normal college experience because I still live at home. I tend to go to school and then drive back right after class because I usually have to be at work by early afternoon and so I have yet to get a real taste of life on campus. The campus is beautiful and people are friendly and my friends who live on or near campus love it.

Diverse and Accepted – The campus at UCF is the second largest in the nation and therefore it is very diverse in all forms of the word. Everyone is accepted for who they are. I haven't heard yet of a case of people not being accepted because of race, sexuality, religion, or anything else of that matter.

It's convenient to have a car since the campus is so large but its not necessary. Trying to find a parking spot around 11 am is similar to trying to find a spot at the outlets on black friday. Luckily, they recently built a new garage which is larger than the others which should help. Everyone need to have a parking decal; theyre kind of expensive but I know that the price is relatively on the low side when compared to other big schools.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
