New dining hall at USFSP is open to the public

New dining hall at USFSP open to nonstudents, too

The new University Student Center at USF St. Petersburg includes a dining hall called the Reef that is open to the public for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. It will serve Red Mango frozen yogurt, which Zagat named the number one smoothie and frozen yogurt chain in the country last year. The L.A.-based company has 190 locations in North America. It must have some health merit because the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Md., will also start serving Red Mango smoothies and yogurt this month.
