  • 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…

    Food at Rosen includes a small on campus cafeteria, but there is a small shopping plaza across the street with plenty of options.

    The meal plan is alright, but not the best. From what I've heard, the breakfast is the best use for the meal plan. However, the other parts are average.

    They have many different restaurants located on campus as well as many restaurants located off campus, but close to it.

    They have great restaurants here (Chickfila, Jimmy Johns, etc) but I don't go to the dining halls as much. It's still pretty good though.

    i worked with ucf dining services for my first 8 months attending the university. the food presentation looks good, but the actual taste of the food is extremely lacking. i found it to be bland and unappealing. the other chain restaurants on campus provide much better in the way of flavor, but eating out gets costly real fast. there are tons of options which is ideal for such a large campus that caters to so many diverse students. overall though, i personally recommend cooking at home.

    there are a plethora of dining options on campus from italian, chinese, burgers, wings, heroes, sushi, breakfast, and even cooked food which is actually pretty good (i'm a very picky eater). ucfoffers a meal-plan and you can also load money on your ucf id and use it at different places such as in the vending machines, bookstore, and numerous other places on campus. in the surrounding areas around campus the options for food get even better with fast-food and casual dining.

    UCF has their own fraternities and sororities, but I have never been inside them. On the outside, they look like any normal college that have Fraternity and Sorority Life.

    i cannot speak about the social fraternities, but joining the business professional fraternity delta sigma pi was the best decision i ever made! i now have a large network of brothers to interact with socially and professionally, which is a huge benefit!

    greek life is very prevalent and vibrant on campus, in fact there's a whole row dedicated specifically to greek housing. there are different events held by the different sororities and fraternities all the time especially during rush or after a probate. there are 4 greek councils on campus. ucf has zero-tolerance for hazing and the policy is strictly enforced. most of the organizations have their own requirements, gpa being one of them, which is good because it shows that academics are at the forefront.

    I have never joined a soriority therefore I cannot speak on their behalf. But I did have a friend who attended rush for DZ ( a sorority) and got selected. For those of you who didn't know, every fraternity and sorority requires individuals to pay for a spot every semester. This money is used for events and things needed within the fraternity or sorority.

    Greek life is worth joining, however it is strictly monitored by UCF so there is little nonsense allowed.
