    Since I'm an out-of-state student, the tuition does not come cheap for me, even though it's very affordable for in-state students. However, you can apply to on-campus jobs to have in-state tuition (or a tuition waver).

    More affordable than majority of state universities.

    Compared to a lot of universities in Florida, UCF is relatively cheap. I've talked to a lot of my friends that attend other state universities and we do get more bang for our bucks. UCF dorms get maid service, we get free gym access, free sporting events, a lot of free events which from my knowledge not all universities give. We also get to make a lot of choices which makes it cheaper for us; we get to have cars as freshman, we don't have to stay in dorms for the first year, and we don't have to get a meal plan which some universities make you do.

    I enjoy attending this university so much that I usually go two hours before my classes start just to hang out, socialize, or attend informational workshops available to students at no cost. The gym at UCF is phenomenal and is also FREE for students! Need help with studying? Writing? Applying for jobs? No worries, at our Student Union there are offices that offer help for all your specific needs. Advisors are all over campus as well, just remember to make an appointment ahead of time because they are all usually busy and booked. By the arena you will also find a specific building called Knights Study where you can meet up with classmates or peers to study. During the winter our campus is decorated with thousands of beautiful christmas lights. This past winter we had a small carnival and an ice skating ring for the winter, along with christmas lights and music!
