    There are a lot of meal and dining options at the university. You can but meals for 7 days a week, 5 or get a declining balance. UF is also one of the best universities for catering to vegan and vegetarian students.

    As a vegetarian, I love the dining hall options. They always have vegan/vegetarian options and they're always delicious. There are also lots of restaurants near campus that are vegetarian friendly like Clippers or Chipotle.

    A lot of non-school food on campus like Subway. I recommend getting as many flexbucks as possible, but the dining halls are unlimited food, it's just not as good.

    From the campus tour, I saw many places to eat all around campus. I have not experienced the dining hall food.

    Although the meal plans are expensive, (maybe overpriced...), having one is so, so, so convenient. Unlimited dining is a dream, at least for me. The food isn't your typical five star restaurant, but it's more tasty than fast food and there are tons of options. Also, there's food court style places at the Reitz and near Student Rec, along with other fast food restaurants and P. O. D.s (Products On Demand, similar to a gas station without the gas) all over campus.

    The food and dining is okay for a first year student when trying to balance your time to eat with your new busy schedule of classes and involvement. There is a variety to choose from and depending on your meal plan the student is not limited.

    I had a meal plan for Summer B and though it was convenient since I didn't have my own kitchen to cook it was a bit pricey and you do get tired of the food at times. The best time to go to Broward Dining Hall is when preview is there! That is when they have the BEST food and Cookies! Aside from the dining halls there are also several Subways, Einstein Bros, Chick-Fil-As, Pollo Tropicals, and other restaurants on campus that do take the Meal Plan. There are also plenty of other restaurants to eat at off campus that are walking distance in Midtown (if you are a late night library studyer then this is most likely where you will go to grab a bite when you need a study break).

    There are over 60 fraternities and sororities at UF, so Greek life is a huge part of the university.

    I have no idea, except the sorority houses are grouped together and are mainly composed of typical rich white kids.

    There are many fraternities and sororities for students to get involved in. Many that people are familiar with and others for people to familiarize themselves with.

    Definitely something you want to be a part of it is very strong at this University. Your new brother or sisters will be your new family. And the house will be your new home. As well as all the fun things you will be able to do.

    There are a ton of sororities and fraternities at the University of Florida. I am not part of the greek life (yet) so I am not very familiar with it. I do know that they volunteer at many events around Gainesville.
