The University is always building new things to accommodate the students, from new dorms to new class buildings. They are making more space for more students to live on campus and class buildings for education, when building these facilities they are aware of the amount of students around and are careful and they work at a fast pace. The school also provides a pool, a huge gym, tennis courts, volleyball almost anything you can think of that the students may use and enjoy.

My first year at the university I did not have a car but many of my friends did so I am aware of the parking situation. UCF is one of largest schools and therefore there is not enough parking to accommodate to the amount of students during the fall and spring semester. The area of dorms that I had lived in were under construction so there was limited parking if you were able to find a spot in the dorm parking lot you were lucky if not you had to park down the street in a dirt lot next the woods and it was a far walk that was scary especially at night. To resolve that situation they are building a new parking garage next to the dorms that is good for all the students.

I frequently eat off campus to change from eating the same meals. There are a variety of different restaurants in close proximity to campus so it is not a burden to go. They have from fast food such as McDonald’s to sit down restaurants like Bahama Breeze. When you walk the campus there are sometimes students handing out little booklets of coupons for students that is very helpful because it gives you discounts to numerous food places and also convenience stores. I enjoy the restaurants around campus because there is always something new to try

Health & Safety:
I gave the safety at the University of Central Florida an A. They take precautions for the simplest of threats for example a bag left alone in an area to long. Campus police will close a good portion of the area to keep the students safe in case it is an actual threat to the school. The safety of the students is the number one priority of the school and wants us to feel comfortable and safe. The Health services are also excellent, when you are ill the nurses and doctors attend you and give you prescriptions and answer any of your questions. I have never felt unsafe on campus because our police do a good job making everything secure and comfortable.

I adore my campus life. UCF has the all new Knights Plaza, with restaurants and the Arena, which hosts sporting events, concerts, even Cirque du Soleil performances! The Health and Wellness center is new, complete with weights, cardio, an indoor track, and nutritionists and personal trainers, as well as an Olympic sized pool. The Student Union is always hosting guest speakers and awareness events, and at the Office of Student Involvement you can find over 500 organizations to get involved in.

UCF is full of facilities to help students gain any and all necessary experience in their field from volunteering to paid internships to research, such as the Office of Pre-Professional Advising, Career Services and the University Writing Center. Just next door to the University is Research Park, offering research opportunities to almost every major. Campus life is also well developed, with concerts and events almost every week, sports played year round, and a growing Greek Life!

I'm very satisfied with the Biology department in the College of Sciences so far. All the professors have extensive research experience, and offer research opportunities to all their students. The biology department uses the on-campus arboretum as part of their instruction. The Office of Pre-Professional Advising and Career Services also work closely with the college of sciences to help each and every student get the experience they need to reach their goals.

UCF has an amazing atmosphere. The area around campus is beautifully kept, with an outdoor recreation area complete with a lake. The gym offers outdoor adventure trips on a monthly basis. Shopping is fantastic, with major malls within driving distance. Disney World, Universal Studios and Sea World are only twenty minutes away. Cultural events are a norm, because of the amazingly diverse population.
College Sophomore 2013-06-26T00:30:03Z
I came to UCF for the Biology Program! The Pre-Med track is well prepared, and there are many opportunities available to the students in terms of research and experience. However, classes are sometimes large to a fault, but the SARC and Supplemental Instruction programs help students get clarification that they otherwise would not have been able to receive. Professors are almost always available during their office hours, and the advising staff are lovely! Workload is manageable, and there are numerous study areas (All Knights Study 1 and 2, Technology commons and the library) that offer resources to help with the workload.

Parking at UCF can be a serious pain. It's always impossible to find a parking spot except maybe on the 4th floor of a garage at the beginning of the semesters. I live 5 minutes away but always leave 30 minutes before my class to make sure I have time to find a parking spot. Also, the ticketing can be ridiculous.

It's central Florida so the majority of the time, the weather is very good. Summer months consist of a lot of rain. Winter is very bearable and spring is nice too.
Recent Alumnus 2013-06-24T23:20:20Z
The places to eat on campus are a nice variety. There are definitely some places that can be taken out...like Burger King...not many people eat there. This is a "Go Green" generation.

Considering that UCF is a fairly new school, most of its facilities are much more technologically advanced than the other schools that I've visited. Coming to school every day is far from a drag. I love taking the drive around the university's main road around campus: Gemini Boulevard. From Greek Row to Brighthouse stadium, there's always something to look at driving around campus. Even studying on campus is cool, too. Places to study are extremely resourceful with all the tools I need to succeed.

it's very confusing, not much aid is given out, and it's extremely difficult to reach the office- i'm still struggling to get it all straightened out

Guys & Girls:
There is a huge variety, mostly hipsterish but not many dress to impress- as far as guys go. They can end up looking messy. Girls are normally very chiche, clean, and fashion foreward.
College Freshman 2013-06-23T00:33:43Z
school spirit isn't amazing because it's such a large school and the other schools around us generally have better athletics.
College Senior 2013-06-22T23:24:05Z
UCF has a diversity in every thing and every where. for instance diversity are in ethnics and economic back grounds, and of course political, religion, and sexual orientation. Because of these diversities I feel a great acceptance and less challenges because diversity allowed me to experience a great opportunity to know and to be introduced to great people and new cultural ideas and friends. UCF is the best!

NO PROBLEM PARKING EXCEPT IF U DON'T HAVE A TAG YOU WILL GET A TICKET

The University of Central Florida is, fittingly, a school that’s spread across the middle of the state. Though the school is based in Orlando, there are more than 10 regional campuses in locations including Daytona Beach, Ocala, and South Lake. Freshmen at the Orlando campus are not required to live on campus and, due to limited spaces, those who hope to are encouraged to apply early for housing. There are more than 40 fraternities and sororities in the school’s large Greek system, as well as more than 300 other student organizations to consider joining. The UCF Knights compete in the NCAA Division I Conference USA.
College Senior 2013-06-21T16:11:38Z
My school is extremely welcoming. The individuals here want you to love being here as much as they do. The people here want to help you succeed and to me that is rare. The first day I stepped on this campus and met my orientation team I knew this was where i wanted to be and I made the right choice.

I get a few scholarships but I think there could be more.
College Sophomore 2013-06-21T15:10:46Z
I don't go to the main campus very often. I am usually at the Cocoa campus and I don't see any.
College Junior 2013-06-21T04:48:53Z
The program I am involved in is all about music performance. To be admitted I had to compete for a spot in there music classes. This was done through auditions the year before school started. The main focus was them trying to evaluate my potential.

Guys & Girls:
The group I have had the most experience with has been very preppy but outgoing and not really stuck up. These are the people I have met through Greek life.
College Junior 2013-06-21T04:43:50Z
There are some hard classes like with any major at any school but the professors are all very helpful and they push you to reach your full potential.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
