Philadelphia has some pretty polite college students, according to GrubHub, who recently released a report of its Top 10 college campuses that had the highest percentage of orders with special instructions containing the words "please" or "thank you."

Grubhub is an online food-ordering service. Users enter their address and see a list of restaurants that deliver to their addresses. Users can place orders through the website and get delivery right to their doors. Through online orders, users can add special instructions. GrubHub — along with Spoon University — determined the friendliest college campuses that requested delivered food. Philadelphia schools took four of the 10 spots.
