    UCF and the surrounding area are both FULL of eateries. You can even get delivery sent right to your dorm building should you decide to live on campus. There are places for meat-lovers and vegans alike, and you can generally get a delicious meal for a good price at most places. There is also a meal plan option available for those who choose to use it. I hear both good and bad things about the meal plan, so sign up at your own risk. Should you come to UCF with a large savings account or a steady income, it won't be hard to figure out how to eat everyday.

    If you are planning to live on campus, a meal plan is a good idea. If you don't get the unlimited plan, then you are allotted a certain number of entries a week. If you think you are not going to use all them DO NOT get the meal plan. If you have 7 swipes a week but only use 5, those entries do not roll over to the next week. That's throwing away $20. Other than that we have Chick Fil A, Pei Wei, Dominos, Qdoba, and burger joints on campus. WE ALSO HAVE A NEARBY CHIPOTLE.

    The food here is good (most of the time) and they have a variety of choices to pick from. The dining halls just got done a makeover and look brand new.

    UCF has a plethora of restaurants on campus, and it's pretty close to a bunch of others off of University Blvd. There are also several meal plan options that allow you to put money onto an account for 'free' dining at select buffets on campus--and the food is amazing.

    I didn't sign up for a meal plan (I don't recommend that you get one either), but there are apparently free shuttles that can take you to grocery stores off campus. There's a convenience store open 24/7 in my community where you can grab a light snack or a full meal along with any household items you might need. The student union building houses a variety of fast food joints like Burger King, but there are also small coffee shops to balance things out. If you're into Starbucks, the one on campus looks absolutely enormous from the outside.

    The dinning halls on campus are pretty good compared to other schools. They have a wide variety of food for students.

    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.

    There's a beautiful Greek Road that is lined with all the Greek Houses. I would encourage it if the funds allow.

    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.

    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.
