Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

  • Jan-11-2015 I am researching this school and have not visited the campus

    I have heard that the dining halls offer a wide variety of foods and are laid out in a buffet-style. Options within the city are numerous, with restaurants being within walking distance and delivery being plentiful. There should not be a problem with finding places where you can eat until fully satiated.

    The Dining Hall claims to be incredibly Vegan friendly, but they generally only offer a small assortment of fruits and a salad bar. However, there is a variety of options outside the dining hall where you can use your meal plan, or the Flex Bucks that come with it. When you get tired of dining hall food, these are wonderful alternatives. But, beware, the majority are not open on the weekends.

    I personally don't have a meal plan, and that was a great decision on my part: I saved a lot of money and never had to eat the dining hall food, which I don't think is very good. Friends of mine got the meal plan though and ate at the dining halls four times a day, so it all depends on whether or not you're a bottomless pit. The other dining options on campus are where I spend my money, and I like a lot of the places.

    There are many places to eat on campus as well as near campus. The food is pretty good as well. You have your standard Subway and Chick Fil A, and there is a Starbucks everywhere you go with discounted prices on campus just for students and faculty!

    The University of Florida has a HUGE selection of food and dining options. The great thing about Gainesville is that everything is pretty much right next to each other. University Avenue, and Archer will have everything you need from burger joints to tex-mex, asian wok to fast food. As for on campus, besides the many many food options dotted around the univeristy, the Reitz offers a great selection of food and it's centrally located to the entire campus. But don't take my word for it, come and see for yourself.

    It would also depend on whcih dining hall you go to, but overall my dining experience here is great. I have not yet got tired of the dining hall food. But you have to watch out because that freshman 15 is not hard to gain.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

    Greek Life is fairly prominent on campus. I personally am not involved in Greek Life, but many of my friends are. They are not the typical snobby sorority girls you expect, but instead, sweet friendly people. The sororities and fraternities are welcoming and their members are just like everyone else.

    Very greek life active, it's not something I'm interested in, but if that's your thing then this school will embrace you with open arms.

    I will be honest, I don't know much about that Greek life. But I can vouch a little bit for what I've seen. Fraternity and Sorority row are by far some of my favorite roads to drive down, well, that and Solar Walk, but I'll let you find that one out for yourself. If you've seen any ridiculous sorority movie, it's probably not like that despite what you might have heard. There are never any giant volcanoes behind the two stories with tiki huts and virgin sacrifices. But if that was what you were expecting, let me reiterate; the fraternity/sorority life is a rush; both literally and I guess as a pun, but you won't be let down. The Greek's go a long way to help make the great UF even better by hosting, sponsoring, finding sponsors, and putting on some of the universities most beneficially rewarding events. They're even responsible for some of UF's biggest undertakings. They've always been pretty respectable any time I've been around, and I even have a few friends who have gone through the motions and they don't seem to be any less responsible than they were when they arrived. In fact they actually seem to benefit from all of the volunteer work. And who knows, there might even be a toga party or two in there for ya.

    So many sororities and fraternities, at times it can be annoying. However, they are so diverse that if that's your thing, you have options. Rush weeks are always a fun time to see sorority girls and frat guys walking around on campus in their respective Greek clothes.

    There are over 60 fraternities and sororities at UF, so Greek life is a huge part of the university.

    I have no idea, except the sorority houses are grouped together and are mainly composed of typical rich white kids.

    There are many fraternities and sororities for students to get involved in. Many that people are familiar with and others for people to familiarize themselves with.

    Definitely something you want to be a part of it is very strong at this University. Your new brother or sisters will be your new family. And the house will be your new home. As well as all the fun things you will be able to do.
