UCF is definitely worth watching


I have a nephew who is a freshman there, so I'm a bit biased. He chose them over U of F, Florida State, and USF -- after being offered academic scholarships from all four.

Admittedly I wasn't extremely familiar with the school prior to nephew's enrollment. But my observation is that they have very nice facilities and pretty decent resources already in hand -- and the elements appear to be in place to promote future improvement. (Orlando being a pretty robust economic engine.)

As much as I want my sons to be Hokies, I wouldn't be upset if they gave a long look to UCF -- particularly for engineering and science.

Not quite as impressed with USF, mainly because of its campus. Still has a lot of the trappings of a commuter school.
