Off-campus dining is surprisingly pretty good around DeLand. To get to the good stuff, it might take a bit of a drive, but nothing that is too out of the way. As a student, when and if you do get an apartment, learn how to cook. It will save you some money. Otherwise, find your favorite student discount restaurant, and stick with it. Beyond DeLand is Daytona, where the mall and several restaurants will provide some good eats, but that can be a little expensive. As always, it depends on the person to find out what they like best, and there is plenty to explore.
There are only so many suggestions that one could give on off-campus dining, and they're all simple. One is to know the local restaurants that give discount rates to Stetson students. When visiting the campus, you may want to visit local restaurants to see how you like them. The second thing to do is check out nearby cities. Daytona offers a good slew of restaurants that are a bit more expensive, but a trip there offers a nice night out. Orlando takes it to a whole new level. Either way, most will find their niche and enjoy it. The only problem is that you might find yourself spending a lot of money while dining out, as well as on gas money to get there.
