3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Sometimes your favorite place will close up early during the summers, but other than that they have accommodations and available dinar that is accessible at most times.

3 College Senior

Campus Dining: They have a lot of options on campus, but there are a lot more off campus if interested.

5 College Senior

Campus Dining: UCF has HUGE eating options, featuring MANY restaurants on campus!

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: After freshman year no one eats at the dining halls anymore. They're pretty boring. There's always the same five stations with little variety. The quality is decent and I've never gotten sick from any of their food so I'm satisfied. It's the most convenient option if you live on campus.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Dining: It's not the best, most people opt for off campus food.

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.
