  • I was only in the dorms for 6 weeks, but it was not an enjoyable experience. I was on the ground floor, had disrespectful suite-mates, and noisy neighbors.…

  • The dorms are not that amazing but they are definitely not horrible. However, do not live in the Towers. It's not worth paying over $3,000 a semester, which is equivalent…

    So many choices for food! There are great restaurants on-campus and, with Downtown Orlando close by, there is all manner of great restaurants!

    The school offers a wide range of choices for everyone, and if you happen to not like the choices available, you're always welcome to bring your own lunch food.

    I didn't use the dining plan, and still had a lot of options and that was several years ago. There are even more choices now, though your in room cooking options on campus are a bit limited.

    The food is OK, but it could be somewhat better. I haven't tried all of the food there yet so I may be wrong with the rating. There are many different restaurants there so if you aren't liking one place, you might like another.

    The Student Union has many fast-food restaurant and this year UCF has open a third Starbucks. There are great restaurant outside of campus as well, since the campus is close to the Waterford Center. You can have Red Lobster, Bonefish, etc. There is always an option for the budget-minded and for a dinner out. We are minutes away from downtown Orlando, Disney, and International Drive.

    Buffet every meal! It might get old after a while, and it would cost the same if you just pay whenever you go rather than getting a meal plan, plus you do not have to play for meals you may not use. Also there are plenty of Starbucks and a variety of other fast food joints all around campus, from Asian chow, to Java City, to Salsa 2 go, to the sushi bar! And you can't forget, the on campus Chick-fil-a!

    I've heard a lot of great things about the Fraternities/Sororities on campus. It's a great way to make life-long friendships and awesome memories.

    I'm not going to be apart of this, but everyone apart of Greek life are really friendly and aren't the stereotypical mean girls and boys. They take their time to help you out whenever you're placed in a sticky situation like I was at orientation.

    There are a lot of greek organizations on campus, both social and academic. I don't have personal experience with them, but they have some beautiful houses on greek row!

    Joining a Fraternity was one of the best decisions I made my Freshman year. Met new friends from all around the country. Friendship that will last a lifetime.

    I rushed twice. Greek life isn't as prevalent here as at FSU or UF but those who do take part in it really enjoy it.

    You could fit into any greek org on campus. There's music greek orgs, service ones, typical ones, medical ones. However, you don't have to join one if you don't want to. Most of the campus is independent

    Greek life on campus is absolutely amazing. For anyone who is interested in joining a fraternity/sorority I think you should do it as early as possible because its an experience that you will treasure for a lifetime. Also when else can you say I have over 160 different sisters/brothers that aren't related to me and I know if I needed help they would be there?
