    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.

    the dining halls were not good at all. i avoided them as much as possible, but people stuck on a meal plan did not have much luck. frequent complaints of both under and over cooked food, and overall just not very good. i'll give it 2 stars because the other restaurants in the area were alright, but not available with the meal plan.

    While the dining halls occasionally have some questionable options, there are always plenty of safe choices, and the dessert is plentiful and delicious. It's great to only have to pay to enter and be able to eat however much of whatever I want. If I don't want to eat in '63 South or Knightros, there are plenty of other options available. There are 3 Subways, one of which is open 24/7; 2 Domino's, one of which is open until 3 am; and plenty of others, such as Chik-Fil-A, Nathan's, and 4 or 5 different places to get coffee (depending on if you count Einstein's as a coffee place as well).

    This could be improved upon. While UCF has great institutions and small businesses like Wackadoos in their student union, Aramark is taking over all of campus dining (and their track record is less than mediocre). Otherwise you'll be glad to know there are multiple starbucks and subways located on campus as well as a few other great options.

    From Starbucks to Chick-fil-a to a Smoothie King, the UCF campus has it all or a UCF version of the restaurant.

    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.

    There's a beautiful Greek Road that is lined with all the Greek Houses. I would encourage it if the funds allow.
