  • 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…

    Although there are meal plans that many students use there, some of the students told me that they can live without it by making their own food or eating at one of the many places to eat around campus. (I mean, there are tons of places to eat here!) I've heard that the meal plans are great but expensive, so even a partial meal plan with a trip to the grocery store would keep you well off.

    Food is amazing here in Orlando. There is such a variety of food around UCF that you never run out of options. The best pizza I've has been lazy moon and it's great for a college student's budget. You get a giant slice for an amazing price. I've never really eaten much on-campus but I've been told that the dining halls aren't the best. There are a variety of restaurants on campus and they are building a new food court, which is going to have some really good places.

    Personally, I did not purchase the meal plan, but UCF has a vast variety of on-campus dining so you don't have to look very far to enjoy a fabulous meal.

    There's plenty of restaurants on and around campus, with different payment options. There's also shopping centers not far to allow you to make your own meals.

    There's a decent variety of food choices on campus. I would suggest not going to get food from like 1130 to about 1230 unless you want to wait in extremely long lines, it's a big school and everybody has to eat.

    There are so many choices!!! There's food everywhere. Coffee shops and different food stops/ restaurants can be found all over campus with a good variety of selections. There are also buffets where you can choose to purchase food just like when you go eat anywhere or you can have a meal plan if that suits you better.

    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.
