    The food in JP dining hall was really good in the beginning, but it's really gone down hill now. I like how convenient it is because it's directly in my building but the food isn't consistent and the dishes aren't always clean.

    I will say that if you can get away from a meal plan, do it. The food is horrible and sometimes not eatable. I would mostly eat hamburguers or pizza because the rest of the food is terrible. Champion's choice is the best dining hall option because of the athletes but it still not worth the expensive price of having a meal plan. You can cook for yourself and go out to eat at least once a week and pay half the price that you would pay for a meal plan.

    You name it, and they got it. USF has stocked up on all of your favorite fast food and casual dining restaurants. They have everything from Chili's to Subway to about six Starbucks'. If on the off-chance they don't have what you are looking for, it's more than likely no more than three or four miles off of campus.

    I have a lot of food allergies and restrictions in my diet and it isn't difficult for me to find a variety of food on-campus.

    For the most part the dinning halls are pretty good, but be wary of the juniper dinning hall. As long as you don't eat there everyday then you'll be very content with the food on campus.

    BEST, BEST, BEST! Healthy, fresh, and many vegan/vegetarian options available. But, rest assured that there are also some non healthy options too for those nights where you just want to indulge on buffalo wings! (We have a Beef O' Bradys on campus)

    The food is great and they try to keep things interesting. The staff is always great too. I would get to know them.

    The dining halls are fantastic. There are quicker options throughout campus, primarily in the student center, like Chick-Fil-A, but the dining halls are the best part of the food on campus. The workers in there are friendly, and there is always good food at each hall. There's also vegetarian friendly options which is lovely.

    The food is typical public school food- it tastes awful and makes you fat. Since I've stopped eating here and starting bringing food from home, I lost five pounds. The chain restaurants on campus are awesome, though. Just avoid meal plans- gain weight on food that doesn't even taste good.

    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.

    Greeks life is very big at USF. There are a lot of fraternities and sororities that you can join. A lot of them have frat parties and activities that are always fun!

    It's not the best. They have houses on campus. However, the office of Fraternity and Sorority life are way too strict and make everything a joke. Fraternity's snitch on each other for no reason.
