    There are many options for dining on campus. In the library, around the campus, and In some other student centers, different dining options are available As an employee of one of the dining facility, I can assure that USF dining does a very good job in maintaining cleanliness and safe food.

    Dining Halls on campus seem to serve the same old stuff everyday so eating there can become very mundane but that is where the restaurants on campus come in handy so that you can taste something different throughout the week.

    The food places are a bit limited. The dining halls pretty much serve the same food every now and then. The popular places like Moes and Starbucks will cost you a bit more and might leave you broke. There's only one bad dining hall which is Fresh Foods but that is being changed.

  • I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    Walking through the eating area of one of the residence halls I didnt really see anything that I would eat because I'm rather picky. I think you should look for yourself.

    I am not part of the Greek life but I have heard it's a great sisterhood or brotherhood to join. I have always been suspicious about the hazing situations but I have not heard anything.

    From what I've seen, the Greeks are extremely nice at USF. They respect non-Greeks, and very welcoming when throwing an activity, and aren't at all the rude jerks you see on movies and television.

    I don't need to buy my friends, so I have no idea what any of this is other than everyone I've met in greek life seems to have a stick lodged up their butthole.
