Work-study is a federal aid opportunity, and you can learn details here. Essentially, work-study jobs are usually on-campus and you can only have one work-study qualified position at a time. I know a number of fellow students that do work-study or just have a regular part-time position on or off-campus, and people seem to be able to maintain a healthy balance between studies and work.
If you’re able to manage your time well, you should be okay!
The closest thing I can think of within USF would be the Saint Ignatius Institute. Otherwise, University Ministry hosts a number of events that may appeal to students interested in exploring their spirituality.
Alternatively, you could always become involved in parish events at St. Ignatius Church, which is right on-campus.
SII is a Great Books Program wherein the students have the option of taking alternative GE courses to fulfill their core requirements. SII students are required to take one symposium class per academic year, and this course is either one or two credits, depending upon the credits you have available for use.
In addition, SII has an optional weekly SII night every Tuesday evening, which involves a casual mass followed by a fun activity planned by fellow SII students (examples being an Alfred Hitchcock night or Bob Ross night).
SII students also have the option of living on the third floor of Phelan (the SII floor). This means that SII students have four years of ensured housing, while all other students only have ensured housing as freshmen.
If you want to see more posts about SII from a current student, look here.
Thisreally varies by professor. In my experience, most professors address this in the beginning of the semester and are usually okay with it, as long as you’re using it to take notes. I have definitely had some professors ban the use of laptops, though, so you should ask your professor what they prefer.
If I had to guess, I’d say that means it was sent.
I haven’t personally used USFrooms in a really long time, and the Office of Admission isn’t the point group to ask about things like USFRooms. You’ll get the best answers from SHaRE, aka Student Housing and Residential Education.
You should call SHaRE (M-F between 9am and 5pm) and ask how to check for replies:

Unfortunately, I can’t give you a more specific answer than that—I’m sorry! Since you’ll need to make a decision by May 1st, it would make sense that you will hear back before then. You still have half a month, so there’s still some time for them to get back to you.
