    Been here for about a year and though they do list nutritional facts, there are no ingredients lists in their dining halls. Holds no merit except maybe using cholesterol content as a clue. A simple vegan/vegetarian label on each would do, am I right? I’m going to talk to some people this upcoming year and see what can be done! They have vegetarian sections in some dining halls (and gluten-free sections), but no vegan sections. Plenty of options, but I know for sure that if I asked anyone who works there for vegan options they either wouldn’t know what to do and would have to get a manager, or would direct me to the salad sections (and usually no one involved wants to do all of that). Labels could really do all of the talking! I think some of the checkmarks on the side are outdated or vague now. Otherwise, there are plenty of options and it can be easy to put together meals. Will be looking into it all more!

      Hi Maddie, Thank you for your feedback regarding our vegan and vegetarian selections at USF. I am the dietitian with USF Dining Services and wanted to provide my contact information if you are looking for more information and would like to discuss our vegan options in more detail. ([email protected] or 813-468-9368). On each of our nutrition fact cards posted in the dining hall or online at, look for the light and dark green leaf icons. This will let you know if the entree or menu item is vegan or vegetarian. If you stop in the Meal Plan Office in the MSC, you can pick up one of our Vegan/Vegetarian guides for campus which may be helpful! If you have any questions or are looking for more information on ingredients please do not hesitate to email or call me. Have a great day!

    USF paid it’s employees to publicize this vegan contest while failing to provide visible allergen and ingredient labels, and frequently subjecting its vegan students to rudeness from cafeteria staff (who are not adequately educated about vegan options), and ingestion of milk, cheese and butter due to poor labeling, lack of knowledge from employees, and poor attitude from employees. They are holding a focus group with the vegans today (but only after we went public with our complaints on facebook), and if it goes well and changes are implemented then I will be happy. But I have been a USF student for 4 years, and the promise has always been “we are implementing these changes soon”, and then nothing happens. I was not an “uber-satisfied freshman” when I wasted my money on a mandatory meal plan close to $1000, and the service, food selection and vegan options were so poor that I had to spend EXTRA money supplementing my food from locations off of campus. Most vegans who I talk to share this sentiment. USF, if you want the publicity of a vegan friendly college, you have to BE one first.
