    The food and dining are pretty good, but I would not go and eat at the dining halls every day. They have a wide array of plenty of restaurants!

    There are so many options to dining here at UF. Almost 90% of them are walkable distance from campus such as Panda Express, Adams Rib Co.

    I cannot speak for the dining hall food, but there are tons of delicious restaurants and dives all over campus for you and your friends to explore. Also, there is a massive food court right in the Reitz Union.

    I wouldn't go so far to say that UF offers 5-star meals all the time, but the cafeterias aren't too bad and there's several restaurants (i.e. Moe's, Chick-fil-a, Starbucks, etc.) all over campus to go to.

    There are plenty of sororities and fraternities to choose from; Panhellenic and non-Panhellenic. I am part of a Christian sorority (non-PanHellenic) and I love it!

    greek life runs uf, even though there is such a small percentage in greek life. you are able to get involved in so much more, plus it is your best bet at getting involved in student government. you get to participate in tons of philanthropy events, and go to lots of parties. plus you meet so many more people than you would not being in greek life (trust me, i didn't join a sorority until i was a sophomore). plus there isn't only ifc and panhellenic sororities and fraternities. there are academic based, cultural, and religious ones you can also join.

    Greek life runs deep within campus. Not a day will go by that you don't see at least 30 people wearing their letters. Rushing is something that I would consider for everyone to do, just for the experience. Even if you don't plan on joining. It's a great way to meet new people and test your small talk skills. Which surprisingly becomes a pretty good tool to have in college.

    I do not plan on rushing, but for someone who does, there is plenty of sororities and fraternities to choose from.
