UCF provides shuttles that take students to and from school. Waiting for the shuttle takes forever. If I have a class at 1:30 I have to leave at least an hour early just so I have enough time to catch the shuttle and walk to class. The shuttles are supposed to come every 15-20 minutes but in reality it takes up to an hour just to catch the shuttle at my student housing development. Leaving campus is also an issue, the shuttle takes about 45 minutes to come, and when it does it is packed with students leaving very little sitting room and many people have to stand.

Ptia Pit a great restaurant with great healthy food choices. I am sent coupons to my email every month, but I don't believe there is a student discount. Everything seems fresh and the prep area is always clean. The staff seems friendly even when they're slammed and trying to speed along the line to keep up with the lunch rush. I also like that they stay open late, which makes it convenient for those late night study sessions.

As I mentioned before I go to a regional campus. The parking is great there! I never have any issues with finding a spot, and the lot is fairly close to the buildings I have class in.

I go to a regional campus for UCF. The labs are usually not crowded, and easily impassible. I do not see any problems for the computer labs for the campus I attend.

Health & Safety:
I feel safe. But I would certainly feel safer in a group or with someone. Never walk alone at night. But the campus is generally safe. The security is always there. You can always call if you need an escort.

Guys & Girls:
You find a on of different guys and girls at UCF. They all have different ways of dressing from preppy, to goth, to sporty. Most have ways of transport from skateboards, bicycles, and scooters. There are a lot of people interested in athletics and working out.

There are a lot of different types of people at UCF. Full of a ton of organizations that follow different beliefs. Every Wednesday there are a bunch of groups outside letting us know about themselves. including political groups, LGBT clubs, and religious organizations. UCF is the second largest university in america so you would expect to see this.

We have had some mishaps and delays. When I first got to school it was such a long drawn out process of verification. They was always some new forms they needed. So annoying, now it is a breeze.

I have my own car but have had to take the shuttle in the past to commute to a different campus but it was great. The shuttle was always on time.

This campus is extremely large and as a first time student it can be a bit overwhelming learning where everything is. It is a gorgeous campus that has a lot of benefits. I can see and understand to what my money goes to. Many of great resources for students! My only complaint is the lack of relationship between the main campus and the other campuses. I have to attend classes on the hospitality campus and I hate to be so absorbed in my major and classes. It major annoying that I never know whats going on main campus.

The University of Central Florida has an extremely diverse campus. In almost every class you take you will find a diverse group of students ranging from different countries, religions, etc. Since diversity is so common at the University of Central Florida there is high acceptance for these students.

The drug scene is barely existent at the University of Central Florida. It is rare that you will even see people smoking cigarettes because the campus is a smoke-free campus. Drinking, however, is visible and accepted for tailgating on campus before the Knight football games.

Transportation within the campus is very reliable. They have buses running till 10 pm.

Very hard to find a parking spot if it is rush hour. Otherwise very easy to find a parking spot.

Our school does have many computer labs, and access is quite good for students. However, our network has so many users on it that at prime times it can be very slow. Our campus has many online classes, so if you're trying to complete online course work on campus at prime times this can create trouble. However, the availability of computers for students who cannot afford their own is very nice!

Greek life at my school is very large, however the view of greek life by non-greek life is not good. The fraternities and sororities are anti-social with other students, and quite pompous. Also, many of our greek life chapters have been suspended due to violations of conduct. I am proud to say that I was NOT a member of greek life at my university!

Going to the 2nd largest school in the nation, it can be very inconvenient to find adequate parking and get to class. It often takes a great deal of time to get to class, which leaves less time for studying/extracurricular activities. This was probably my chief complaint with the University I attended.

The school is very strict with all policies in place, thus providing a safe environment.

There's a big variety of internships offered on and off campus and UCF helps students obtain them through Career Services. Most of the internships require students to commit between 15-20 hours per week and depending on where one is, it may be paid or unpaid.

I decided to pursue the Human Communications route because it gave me more flexibility to explore more fields in the communications aspect without solely focusing on one area. I wish the course selection gave students the freedom to explore and delineate what track within communications one would like to pursue, rather than focusing on one route.

I personally do not live on campus, but after visiting the dorms i would say that they are about average.

There are people from all over the world at UCF. This goes without saying that it is because the school population is over 64k students strong.

Health & Safety:
There have been a few incidents of rape on campus. I have not heard anything back in regards to capturing the criminals. After the incident, they have increased security ever since.

Everyday, UCF always has some sort of event going on within the Student Union. Whether it is 'Market Fresh Thursday' to 'Student Involvement Tuesday' there are about 400 clubs that will suit any fellow Knight's needs.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
