1) A relatively new school that has been building and expanding exponentially more than most other universities in the country.

2) The University of Central Florida

3) A large university, which (like all large universities) has it's share of intelligent people and complete dumb-asses. Unfortunately the dumb-asses happen to be louder, always.

4) A school that 90% of it's students take for granted. If they have actually visited other state's regional schools, they'd find out that they were pretty lucky to be at UCF.

5) Home of some pretty bad sports, due mostly to the fact that Orlando is so apathetic that they would rather support the Gators (who don't need more fans) than help build their own college athletics program.

"UCF Sucks! Look at how many Gator decals I have !!!"
"Oh? What has your school done in the last 10 years?
UCF has built billions of dollars of academic construction projects, expanded its student body five-fold, and has competed nationally in virtually every field, and has humorously lost just about every foot ball game they have ever played."

"I'm a UCF student and I was admitted to one tier-one school and one actual ivy-league school (not UF, cause UF isn't close to Ivy). To hell with your rivalries; I just want an education."

1) A decent school in Florida, a state which inflates its high school GPAs for the benefit of college ranking.

2) A place where students who have never left the state of Florida for some reason think their degrees are of the same merit as degrees from universities like UCLA, UC Berkeley, Stanford, Dartmouth, Yale, Harvard, Fordham, Virginia, etc., etc., etc...

3) The home of the Gator Nation.

"I've never left Florida, so as far as I'm concerned, UF is the best school in the U.S.A., or the world for that matter."

"Where did you attend school?"
"Really? I graduated from Columbia!. Where are you from?"
"University of Florida. Go gators; the south will rise again."

By the way, UF is ***NOT*** listed as "public ivy" either.

The original eight Public Ivies list by Moll (1985):2
College of William & Mary (Williamsburg, Virginia)
Miami University (Oxford, Ohio)
University of California6
University of Michigan (Ann Arbor)
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
University of Texas at Austin
University of Vermont (Burlington)
University of Virginia (Charlottesville)
