  • Feb-01-2015 I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    I did not see the main dinning hall, but for the most part, there seemed like a wide variety of different restaurants around the campus.

    The food places UCF has are pretty good, like Starbucks and Subway. But, the dining hall food not so much, the bad food, unhealthy food taste so much better. It kind of this best option though if you don't have a kitchen unless you want to go to the kitchen open to all students in the dorm which may be a viable option for you.

    Many advise that you should get a food plan but i'd say not to unless your dorm or apartment doesn't have a kitchen, but if it does than it would be easier and cheaper for you because you could spend 100 dollars on groceries and it will last you a month. But a meal plan cost 1000, but if you are a little lazier and don't like cooking and you have the money for a meal plan then i would recommend a meal plan.

    At the University of Central Florida you will NEVER starve. We have it ALL! From a burger and beer joint to having two Starbucks available to you at all hours of the day. The Student Union is a building where all the food is located. The staff for the most part in all dining areas are very friendly. We have a Burger King, Mexican restaurant,Chik-Fil-A, Subway, Japanese restaurant and so much more!

    I was advised to avoid the meal plan like the plague (or if not the food would give me the plague). I buy groceries from the local Publix and eat out at the restaurants around campus. If they would put a Chipolte on campus I would give them five stars. Pro tip: Do not call 63 South by it's name, you must always refer to it by it's birth name Marketplace. Ask any student why and they will give you the story.

    When I was visited, my mom and I went to the chick-fil-a on campus and it was packed, they even have the place roped off like in a bank with multiple rows and the line was still out the door.

    Certain restaurants and dining places for food are great and others are not as great. I would suggest trying out different places when you do go out so that you can find one that fits your tastes best.

    If you have a kitchen in your dorm, I wouldn't waste the money on the meal plan. I have the meal plan and a kitchen and I find myself not using the meal plan and cooking in my dorm more. The meal plan is very easy to get sick of.

    UCF offers so many dining restaurants that students are usually seen around campus eating. From Chik-Fil-A to Subway to sushi, students can rest assured they'll find something that'll cater to their taste. The dining halls are satisfactory, although some meals can get pretty repetitive.

    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.

    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.
