Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    The Dining Halls at University of Florida are eater-friendly. Some days the food is completely amazing and you want to gobble up everything you see. Others, you have to look hard before you find anything that you are really interested in eating. I myself am not a picky eater, but sometimes I just don't find any of the options appetizing. So, you can go to the salad bar,omelette bar, or sandwich station where they can make you whatever you would like. Overall, the food is good, but the price for a meal plan is very high. If you have the time and will to cook for yourself do it. If you are a voracious eater and are always pressed for time, get yourself the meal plan. As well, the meal plan offers flexbucks to use at coffee shops, or restaurants on campus. Some of these restaurants even offer meals up to $6 can be paid for merely by having the meal plan. Restaurants such as Moe's, Subways, Pollo Tropical etc.

    From what I've seen the food and dining is okay at the school but being apart of the campus definitely makes up for it.

    Dining is pretty good, however, options for vegans are available, but there isn't much variety for them.

    Lots of good restaurants but dining halls and meal plan is not worth it. Maybe declining balance but not the meal plans.

    There are restaurants like Chick-fil-a, Pollo Tropical, Panda Express, complex dining halls, and other great places! Off campus, there are a ton of restaurants, bars and fast food places.

    There are a wide variety of restaurants that are conveniently located on campus. However, they are open very limited hours, especially on the weekends. The dining halls change up there menus and are also located near where many of the classes are, but I find that they have more unhealthy then healthy options. There are also convenient store- like stores near some of the dorms and in popular locations that sell various snack items that are great for on-the-go college students. Unfortunately, the price of these items are much higher than standard price.

    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.

    The Greek system is unique at UF. There are many different types of sororities and fraternities, both social and professional. Not sure if it is for you? Be sure to rush, it will give you the chance to meet a whole bunch of interesting people while giving you a real taste of the things that you will have to do if you join.

    Greek Life can be very beneficial if you join it for the right reasons. There is definitely a sense of family within each fraternity and sorority, but if there is a very wide variety of people in Greek Life, some of whom you can look up to and some of whom you can have a little too much fun with. You just have to be careful with the decisions you make, especially when it comes to partying. Greek Life has tons of benefits socially and also educationally as long as you use them correctly.
