Gorgeous campus. I've been to multiple events at the arena.

Its in the rainy season, since we're in Florida. But it clears up by fall.

I currently do not have a car so I am not familiar with the parking situation. However, I hear it can be very tedious.

UCF off-campus dining mostly consist of fast food restaurants;almost all the fast food restaurant you could think. There are a few well known restaurants such as Chili's and Applebee's. These restaurants may be unhealthy: however they provide affordability.

It depends who you hang out with mostly. The drug scene is moderate, mostly marijuana is present. Alcohol is more popular.
Recent Alumnus 2013-07-01T15:46:31Z
UCF is very diverse, academically inclined, and fun!

There are many different apartment complexes to choose from. They are easy to find and are a decent price. Some are a bit expensive but you just have to find the ones that aren't. No one has to worry about not finding an apartment.

Everything is great at my school. The athletics are great and there is a lot of school pride. Its easy to get internships and co-ops because of all the business right around UCF that are always on campus so its not harder meeting recruiters.
College Junior 2013-06-30T23:48:56Z
There are meal plans and two different dining halls on campus. There is also tons of restaurants in stuff in different area around campus such as in the student union, by the arena and in some of the classroom buildings.
College Junior 2013-06-30T23:45:08Z
The nightlife is great. There are tons of clubs and bars right down the street. All the clubs around UCF are 18 and up which is great for freshmen. The downtown club scene is better. It rows of clubs and bars but some of the clubs downtown tend to be 21 and up.
College Junior 2013-06-30T23:42:52Z
The student union is great and there is always something happening on campus. The campus itself is beautiful. There is always something being added to campus to try to improve it.
College Junior 2013-06-30T23:40:10Z
There are a lot of chain restaurants like panera and buffalo wild wings but there are a lot of discounts. Most of the surrounding restaurants have some type of student night or discount for UCF students.

Living on campus your first year is definitely the way to go. You learn where all the buildings are, all of the student offices, and you are more involved with campus activities. Although housing is a bit expensive, it's a great idea as a freshman. I would live in the Towers because they are the biggest rooms and it's like you live in an apartment with 3 other people. You have access to a washer and dryer, a refrigerator, a full bed, and more. I would say living in Apollo is the last place I would want to live because 5 people share 2 rooms and that sounds uncomfortable.

Health & Safety:
I feel very safe walking around campus, regardless of the time of day. As long as I'm not alone, I'll be fine. There are several stations you can contact security services to pick you up and take you to your destination. They are always happy to help. Thee is a police station located on campus which is very convenient to many people. When an incident occurs on campus, campus-wide emails are sent out to let each student and faculty member to be aware of. I find this helpful and a great idea.

I would say the nightlife around UCF is pretty crazy. There is always something to do, even if it's a Tuesday. You'll never get bored. Not only are clubs and bars open, there are also events on campus that everyone can attend. I always go places with friends to ensure I have a good time and get home safely.
College Junior 2013-06-30T20:43:53Z
The transportation options at UCF are great and convenient for everyone. There are several shuttle services you can take to get to apartment complexes around campus. There is also a bus that comes to campus on the weekends and if you have your UCF ID, you are able to ride it to plazas around the area.

They make you take an online quiz which includes a video presentation after you get admitted on alcohol usage and abuse to help students become aware of what alcohol can do and the pressures associated with it so that the student body can have some defense against getting caught up in the binge drinking scene surrounding every University.
College Senior 2013-06-30T14:10:50Z
The educators are always available and the extra help offered for students is excellent as long as you remember to take advantage of all those that are offered.
College Senior 2013-06-30T14:09:13Z
I received the aid I needed after filling out the necessary forms it wasn't very hard but not everyone that works in the financial aid office is well versed in all aspects of the process.

The nursing program is acceptable but finding a job in nursing is not as easy as it use to be before the economy collapsed.
College Junior 2013-06-30T10:19:45Z
I haven't had an internship and do not need one for my field. Although CNA experience helps prior to entering nursing school.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
