    A meal plan is a great idea. The cafeteria offers many different dishes to please everyone. There are many different affordable options on campus and in the surrounding community.

    There is a lot of variety, plus FIU is right next to a publix and a Five Guys so there is most definitely something different every day.

    The possibilities for dining are endless. And if you don't want to spend the dining dollars that they provide you with your housing, you can always go to Fresh Food Co. which has a variety of great choices.

    Food and dining wasn't great when I started as a freshman, but there are new options becoming available all the time as the campus keeps expanding and adding new food places. The dining hall has also majorly improved their facilities and it looks greats!

    Food on campus is expensive so learn to cook, you will save a ton of money that way.

    I do not posses a meal plan, but there are a plethora of options on and around campus. It is very easy to find something to like, plus a grocery store across the street.

    The upside to the constant construction on campus is that there are always new and exciting things being added to FIU. There are already a large amount of restaurants to pick from all across campus not to mention that across the street, where a good amount of student reside, you can find a lot more places to dine that give discounts to FIU students.

    The Greek life is very active, so active that I had to drop recruitment because I was still getting into the swing of college and being in a sorority would have taken a lot of time out of my studying because they are really active.
