not a cruise related post, i appologize, but a friend of mine and i are looking for apartments down there for next year about this time near UCF and Valencia Community College, as we wish to attend
anywaysss, thoughts on the UCF area? i heard it was kinda ghetto-ish?

the winter park area is super nice and pretty

definatly a good choice.

it's not bad
there are a couple of crappy areas
but you just have to avoid them
Winter Park is Nice
I don't live far from there
and Lake Mary/Heathrow is nice too

I used to visit a friend of mine over at UCF once a week.
it's a pretty nice area?
at least the area immediately around the campus.
just make sure to search the apartments you're planning on staying at for any recent crime and such.

but Winter Park on the other hand...
goodness that place is beautiful. There's this little park next to the lake, and if you go there at night with the moon hitting it just right and the trees...

I don't know what ghetto you are referring to... UCF is a great college (one of the newest in Florida) and is in a great area. Close to downtown Orlando and Cocoa Beach. I have family and friends that all live over there. No robberies or murders so far (that I know of) lol jk jk

Also look at FGCU (Florida Gulf Coast University). It is similar to UCF, slightly smaller but the fastest growing University in the USA.

It's located in Ft Myers, Florida!

Good school choices k... UF (University of Florida) is the most difficult college in Florida to get into, hope you have a 4.0 and a lot of extra curriculars. It's a nice school though, but they all are. And if you are into the marine life then Florida is definitely a great place to consider college.

I'm so tired of hearing about college, I just want to go already! Ever since I got out of sophmore year that's all I hear about! I have MAJOR senioriticis and I still have another week left of being a junior!!! AH! lol Am I the only one like this??

I'm looking into the School of Journalism at UCF.
I'm excited.
It's 5 to 6 hours from home though.
My mother will get over it.
I love that area in Fl.
I'm going soon to check it out in person and the area and stuff.

I've been reading about the college and area and glad to hear it's not 'ghetto'...

I love UCF! Hopefully I will be going there. It's one of my top two choices in FL. And it's not too far from any cruise ports just in case I need a last minute vacation. lol

Only three days left of school and 2 finals left before it's SUMMER!!!! I'm SO excited!! Can't wait to cruise again. It always feels like forever since my last one. I'm ready to set sail already!! 8)
