    It will do the job to feed you and keep you well-nourished but you will quickly get over the food.

    On-campus dining is expensive. The meal plan is a little over $2000 a semester and some people still run out of money before the semester is over. They choices they have in the dining halls are good, but can get a little repetitive. However, the off-campus dining is amazing. Everything you can think of is within a few blocks, whether you want sushi, burgers, pizza, pho, or anything you crave, it's probably within walking distance of the campus.

    We don't have a McDonald's or Panda Express or anything in our cafeteria like our schools. It's kind of sad, but I would get fat if we did so I guess it's good we don't. The school, like the city, is health-conscious. The cafeteria has a contract with this food company so they make our food and run the cafeteria. There are different booths for different appetites you may be having. An american food section, special section, mexican food section, italian food section, vegan section, salad section, a pastry/coffee section, a little market section, and a asian food section. We also have another cafeteria in the University Center called the undercafe, the floor under the cafeteria with a lounge and the bookstore and a market/grill which is open when the cafeteria closes for those late night study people or owls. They sell a lot of healthy stuff, but also a lot of other food so I guess you can say it's pretty balanced. But, besides cafeteria food to use your meal plan, it is really cool because you can use your meal plan for non-food the school market sells! That is how I get washing powder, dish liquid, toothpaste, shower gel, etc. Then, you can't forget about the amazing food off-campus all over San Francisco.

    Sometimes it gets pretty repetitive of what food is served in the cafeteria, but the food and drinks that are sold are always high quality and taste delicious! There is a lot to choose from and usually, there are different foods served each day at certain stations. Even when your tired of eating from the same 4 dining areas on campus, there are so many different places to eat in San Francisco that are easy to access, since we get a free bus pass with tuition! You can go out to the city with your friends and eat everything from Greek, to Chinese, to Indian food.

    There are multiple cafeterias on campus. One on the upper campus and another one the lower campus and yet another in near the law school. The food is catered by Bon Appetite and is, lets say, normal food. There are more healthy option here at USF than there are at many other schools, but the variety of food differs day to day. Typically there are two salad bars, a pasta/pizza section, regular cafeteria food, sandwich corner, breakfast stop, fish section, a stop and go store style inlet, and a rotating option section.

    There's so much available if you want to eat out but if you're on campus, your options are limited. Many of the food choices on campus are overpriced, but I would say they're around the same cost as your everyday restaurant. If you live on campus and are required to have the meal plan, you will be paying more than you should.

    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 am a member of Pi Kappa Phi and I can say Greek Life on campus is the best at USF. I have made friends in all of the sororities and fraternities. We all support each other and it is like a family at USF.

    There are a few sororities and fraternities on campus and from what I've seen they seem to be very close-knit and like family. They have lots of events that members can participate in and sometimes other people can attend as well.

    The Greek Life is not large like it is at other schools, but it is still present on campus. I am not in a sorority, but one of my roommates is and she tells me all about it. They still had to do the rush week I think it's called and they still had to be accepted into the sorority/fraternity. They still have fees and activities. They just don't have housing. Although small at USF, it still gives you connections, the Greek Life label, and everything else any other school's Greek life can give you.

    Greek life isn't like most traditional colleges that have a Greek Row or special housing. Some people are very involved in their social frats/sororities and you can see people on campus wearing shirts or other merchandise showing off Greek letters. I've been only in an academic fraternity, and they're different from social fraternities/sororities so I don't have much more to say.

    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.
