EAT
Teak Neighborhood Grill
6400 Times Square Ave.
407-313-5111
teakorlando.com
Located in MetroWest just off campus the Teak Neighborhood Grill is a fantastic alternative to the less-than-stellar food served in the campus cafeteria. With a decent-sized menu focusing on burgers and sandwiches, this pub is a great place to go for lunch or dinner after class. The rotating list of craft beers on tap sure helps digest that two-hour calculus lecture.

DRINK
Universal Orlando CityWalk
6000 Universal Blvd.
407-363-8000
citywalk.com
After a full day of classes all you want to do is unwind, relax and maybe down a drink. Or two. Or three. Lucky for Valencia students, just a short drive down Kirkman Road from your campus, you’ll find one of the biggest nightlife destinations in Orlando. Universal’s CityWalk hosts five separate and unique bars. You can dance to electronica and hip-hop at the Groove, chill at Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville, listen to dueling pianos while sipping a hurricane at Pat O’Brien’s. Whatever your mood, you’ll find something to suit you here.

SHOP
Orlando Premium Outlets
4951 International Drive
407-352-9600
premiumoutlets.com
There’s no better way to blow off finals-induced stress than splurging at the outlets! Well, there probably is. But if you’ve got your shopping addiction under control, Orlando Premium Outlets is very conveniently located to campus, and it’s got all the stuff you love: DKNY, Polo, Vans, Saks Fifth Avenue, J.Crew, Gap and way too many to list here.

CHILL
Achilles Art Café
2869 Wilshire Drive
407-704-7860
achillesartcafe.com
Just a four-minute drive off campus, Achilles Art Cafe and Coffee Shop is the perfect place to relax during that long break you have between classes. They serve coffee and sandwiches and they’ve got free wifi – it’s an oasis of comfy couches and caffeine, two things every college student needs.

STUDY
Campus Lab
The campus labs have course-specific software, writing assistance programs, research guides and more that you’ll find very useful when you’re finishing that last-minute assignment and you just need to find that one last thing that’ll take it from being a B paper to an A. Check in here often.

EAT
Dexter’s
558 W. New England Ave., Winter Park
407-629-1150
dexwine.com
After your first few weeks on campus, you’re going to want a dining hall alternative. (“I’m so tired of this omelet bar!”) Fortunately for you, right down the street from campus is Dexter’s of Winter Park, and by the food’s simple elegance, you would never expect the vibe to be so down-to-earth and the prices to be so college-friendly. Sunday brunch is a local festivity, and most nights offer in-house live music. And with a 12-minute walk to and from campus, the trip is convenient and the taste is guilt-free.
