Off-Campus Dining: I much prefer dinning off campus because of student discounts and more variety.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Off-Campus dining includes a variety of cuisines and cultural dishes. My main complaint when it comes to variety would be the lack of Caribbean restaurants. I love that some places have student discounts, special FGCU student deal days, and decorate there facility with FGCU memorabilia.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Off-Campus dining is great. They're a great variety of restaurants and options to choose from.
