4 College Junior

Campus Dining: there are a lot of options available to students like burger king and pizza

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: My favorite dining option we have is our on campus Dominoes

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: From my experiences dining at UCF, they have some pretty decent choices. They offer some healthy choices, which is rare to find. But I have not stayed late at night on campus, so I am unsure about how their late night hours go. I know that on the regional campuses, their late night options are terrible and basically non existent! But I'm sure main campus is different.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: Their is a variety of options on campus for dining but the prices are not in a college student budget. The dining halls are okay if you buy the meal plan which is a lot of money and you better hope the good chefs are working. the worst is entering the dining hall and all you smell is burnt food. They have few variety in the dining all you have 3-4 options usually but they like to rotate these options weekly.

College Senior

Campus Dining: I do not dine on campus so I do not know about the options.

You'll never go hungry while living on or visiting the UCF campus; there's enough variety for everyone. Conveniently, you can find tons of fast food all over the campus. There really is every type of food, ranging from hotdogs to Mexican. By majority vote, Wackadoo's is the top choice of places to eat on the UCF campus. This popular bar and grill aims to please the students and has a friendly menu, featuring things such as the "Fat Ass Burger," for the hungry student. Many students meet up and work on group projects while taking advantage of the food establishments on campus.

The dining hall can hold its own and receives praise from students. Although it doesn't seem to be a place to eat every meal, it provides students with easy eating and a huge variety everyday. If you live on campus, getting a meal plan is a good way to go.
