    Majority of the students do not find the food very appealing, but it is definitely edible, but pricey. The sandwich booth is great and the soup section. They opened up a crepe booth recently, but it seems to change. I love the breakfast toast your own bagel section with an assortment of cream cheese section.

    Non-existent again for this program. Since it's located in the Presidio, nothing is around. You will need a car to drive far into the Marina District to find affordable and quick food that isn't restaurant-style table service.

    Good food and several dining locations. I'm never without food. And there are lots of student oriented restaurants in the nearby neighborhoods.

    Cafeterias are cafeterias. But I do have to say that USF's cafeteria is a lot better than many other colleges I visited. They have a good diversity and try to keep things organic and healthy which I love.

    I have been told that USF has better food compared to other universities, but since I haven't lived on any other campus to compare it I would simply describe the cafeteria food as simply 'okay'. USF provides food from Bon Appetite who are known for ethically preparing their food, however pickier students tend to get tired of the food quickly and find it overpriced. If you don't like the food in the cafeteria, there's a grocery store nearby USF and a variety of great restaurants within the city.

    The food on campus is quite diverse and surprisingly tasty for a college campus. That being said there really are no financial incentives to eat on campus as a majority of the food options are quite pricey (changes are in the works though). Either way you will find yourself eating on campus at one of the two main cafeteria areas and you will be happy that you have access to such an eclectic menu that actually tastes pretty good. Since USF is located in the middle of San Francisco (or just about) there are an innumerable amount of local restaurants that you can check out, some of which have the best food in the world!

    In the main cafeteria, there are various sections that have different dishes. There are some sections that remain consistent with the dishes - such as the pasta section or The Grill -whereas there are other sections â?? like the Global section or Classics- that change dishes daily. Unlike many universities, the cafeteria does not function on a meal points system but rather Flexi Dollars. Flexi is money incorporated into your tuition that can only be used to buy food on campus and is mandatory for all on-campus students. In addition to the main cafeteria, there is a Crossroads Grill/Market and Peetâ??s Coffee counter that is open until midnight. Lastly, there is a small grocery section in Lone Mountain where frozen foods, and other pantry foods are sold. The company that provides all of the food on campus, Bon Appetite, has undergone lots of criticism from students. Many students believe that everything served is highly overpriced and the quality of the food is not satisfactory. Some students even claim Bon Appetite to be a monopoly and corrupted business. Although meals may be overpriced, the cafeteria does provide different options for their students every day.

    For the price you pay at this school, it leaves a lot to be desired about the quality of the food, and service. The cafe staff are pretty slow at serving you over priced under cooked meals.

    At first, the food is amazing because it's stuff most people don't eat on a daily basis. Then it feels repetitive. Even then, for college food, it's pretty tasty.

    There is Greek Life at USF, but Greek houses do not exist. Most sororities and fraternities either center around service work or preparing students for future careers.

    Not much of a Greek life at USF. There are about five societies that I know of that range from business to leadership in the community but they have no houses or special areas. Therefore, USF Greek life is not the strongest.

    USF's Greek Life is service-based. These students represent their organizations on and off campus and actively network with other Greek Life organizations in the Bay Area and beyond.
