  • Other reviews were saying that the rooms at USF are like prison cells and you want to break out immediately and that may be true but I don't get that…

  • Dorms life is overrated. As stated before, unless you enjoy sharing a kitchenless room with a stranger and a bathroom with 40 strangers (no joke) then go for it. You…

    With a great variety of food and restaurants comes a variety of dinning plans as well. On campus alone you have so many options of breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, coffee, fast food, salads, cafeteria, and anything else you can think of. All of these places are close by and accessible to all your college friends and are the perfect places to meet and catch up.

    There's everything on every USF campus that you could want to eat. As long as I get my Starbucks before class, I'm good.

    Champions Choice by the gym, as well as any other dining hall on campus offers so many food options. There are also are variety to choose from, Moe's, Chick-fil-a, and Boar's Head to say the least. Whatever you're in the mood for, there is something here for everyone.

    The dining hall food was not of good quality by any means during my freshman year, and even made the local news because of it. However, since that incident in the spring of 2013, the food had gotten significantly better. I have not eaten there since, so I am not sure if it has gotten better or worse since. However, I do still eat at other places on campus, such as the food court in the Marshal Student Center, and the food there is excellent.

    There are three dining halls: Champions, JP and Fresh foods. JP is known to be the best however I disagree, yes there are different options but at the end of the day its a college dining hall, the food is cheap but they work with what they have.

    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.

    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.
