Yes, the dining halls are all-you-can-eat-buffet-style, but there are so many times that you can eat two-hour-old pizza slices, sandwiches, and salads. For the on-campus student, I highly recomment a scaled down meal plan, so that they have a guaranteed meal for the day, but also the option to check out some of the great places on campus, such as the Student Union (including Sbarro, Burger King, Asian Chao, a salad bar, and a market-style place that makes delicious sandwiches and wraps), the downtown area (including Kyoto and Jimmy John's) and University Boulevard itself (which has as many restaurants as you would find in the heart of any college town). With that said, the meal plan also includes the food served in the in-library coffee shop, which includes yummy sandwiches. So it is not terrible, just a bit of a bore when considering the great food in the area.

It is IMPOSSIBLE to be alone on campus. I went to go sit by myself on a bench, and then was instantly approached about buying some sort of makeup.
Orlando Sentinel Sports Reporting Institute – I worked alongside professional sports journalists covering the local scene and reported on events such as the NBA summer league. I had no pay, but it was completely worth it for the experience. The time commitment was brutal. But, again, it was worth it.
Being a Part of Something. Through the course of one's collegiate career, he/she constantly strives to become a piece of a puzzle. Because there are so many puzzles (both good and bad) available to join in on in the college scene, I am beyond glad that I found the Broadcast Journalism group. My peers are both friendly and competative, my instructors are easy to approach and helpful, and my advisor has my best interests at heart.
Not Too Difficult – In order to acquire entrance into the Radio-Television Broadcast Journalism program in the School of Communications, one must maintain between a 3.2 and a 3.5 GPA during their first semester of school, and then apply. There are no other requirements, so, as long as you keep your face firmly planted in your College Algebra book, you will be perfectly fine.
Broadcast Is the Way to Journal – Because of the rapidly changing face of public media, it has become difficult to share information with the general population while managing to capture their attention simultaneously. That is why broadcast journalism is such a useful degree. Not only are the classes clearly useful in the career field, but they help associate the transforming world with changes in technology that are neccessary to reach it.
