Off-Campus Dining: Trying to recollect from memory.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There's so much variety off-campus, lots of options within walking distance and most everything is local, organic and all house-made from scratch. Daily Eats is my favorite, Captain Crunch french toast with oreo crumbs and chocolate chip cookie dough pancakes are the best.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There is a great variety of nearby dinning spots. Local but excellent burger and pizza spots as well as organic and thai infused cuisine are just a few of the many around campus.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Because the school is private the options are UT are very delicious but sometimes its nice to have a change up of what is not on campus. Plenty of places deliver to the dorm rooms around campus. There's places like pizza places, Jimmy Johns, and a Chinese place. Close by there is Walgreens and a grocery store Walmart and then a bit further is Target and Super Walmart. I don't know any places unfortunately that do any student discounts. There are plenty of bar/restaurants around along with there is a breakfast restaurant around. Usually everything is fairly priced and there is really good deals if students search for it.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of options, so you don't have to the same places every day. The population at the restaurants is very diverse

If you are in Tampa and feel the need to have international cuisine, just look around! Tampa is filled with many different, international choices for good eats. Indian, Vietnamese, Colombian, Venezuelan, Cuban—you can find any type of food. For students who are going out on a date, for those who have relatives in town, or for those international students craving some food from "home," Tampa and its different restaurant varieties will do the job. And if you don't want to eat out at a restaurant, you can always go to an international market and pick up the necessary ingredients to make your own favorite dish.

The value of what you get for what you pay is unbelievable. You can have your favorite international dish for as low as $2 in some places. Tampa is definitely a great place to go out and enjoy a nice meal, no matter the ethnic food. And for those who are more organic, there are also different healthy and vegetarian options available around the city.
