    Off campus food is WAY better than the dinning hall food on campus. There are a lot of great places to go in Mid-town, right across the north side of campus. FAIR WARNING. The meal plan, which ever one you consider, is over priced and the food is not that good. Getting declining balance on your Gator1 card is the way to go.

    There are plenty of options for on campus eating, but I do not recommend the meal plan. My friends who live on campus and have the meal plan often do not use it as much as intended and waste money. You're better off learning to budget food, and it will help in the long run. The campus has a couple Chickfilas, many Starbucks, Moes, Chomp It, Jamba Juice, Subway, Wendys, Pollo Tropical, Panda Express, Croutons, Einstein's Bagels, etc.

    There are numerous food places on campus and you are close to one no matter where you are on campus. There's also a great range of food categories. It's dining hall food but it's pretty good considering it is dining hall food. It is good some days and not the best on other days

    If cooking is not your strong points, don't fret, UF has your back! The Fresh Food Company and says its quality in it name. Dishes accommodate meat eaters and vegans! Amtrak Company provides the campus with Chic-Fil-A, Subways, Pollo Tropical, Wendys, Pizza Hut, Freshies, Croutons, Panda Express, and the list goes on and on. For the late night munchies, the campus provides small markets near dorms to benefit students. And yes, you can call Papa Johns or Jimmy Johns is you do get tired of campus food, they don't mind delivering to dorms :)

    Personally I do not have a meal plan. I have eaten at the dining hall and it isn't terrible, but I can see how it would get old after a while. I have declining balance where there is money preloaded onto my card and I can use it at the dining halls or any of the restaurants on campus. I find this works better for me because I like to cook my meals more using the floor kitchen.

    broward dining and gator dining are the two dining halls on campus. broward is the one i eat at most, due to proximity to my dorm. the food is alright. it's not gourmet, 5-star restaurant material, but it's pretty good. sometime's they experiment with their options, something i am not too particularly fond about, but they have everyday options, such as pizza. also the cookies are amazing. included in the meal plan are restaurant options at the reitz or around campus, usually at a $6 value. this means you can get any option on the menu that is either included in the meal plan or that costs $6 and it is paid for by your meal plan. some options include, subway, croutons hand-crafted salads, papa john's, moe's, and my personal favorite chomp it. there are several meal plan options. most come with a certain amount of flex bucks that are replenished each semester. these allow a student to make purchases at places such as pod markets or chick-fil-a.

    I opted out of the meal plan because chicken tenders and burgers are not healthy for you on a long term basis. Groceries can get pricey and there are not too many options but the moment you step foot off campus the bang for your buck skyrockets and the restaurants in UF are the bomb.

    The dining halls are exactly what one would expect, and the meal plans are probably not worth it unless you're eating five meals a day. The options for other food on campus, however, are excellent. We have a huge range of fast food options all around campus that are open a wide range of hours, so it's not impossible to find food later in the day. Campus also borders University Ave, which has a huge stretch of restaurants that are within walking distance.

    The dining hall food tends to be hit-or-miss, and does get old after a while. There are other places on campus to eat when you take advantage of your meal plan, but they often have very restricted hours and are all parts of large chains.

    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.

    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.
