Campus dining halls are amazing places. Besides a Las Vegas buffet, where else can you find Chinese food, Mexican food, and a pasta, deli, salad and dessert bar all in one room? They are amazing, but amazing doesn’t always equal good for you.

Endless exams and papers, constant guy drama, grad school applications, a dwindling bank account...the day-to-day worries of our college years often weigh us down.

You’ve finished your three classes for the day, you spent an hour catching up on reading in the library and you sweat through 45 minutes on the elliptical. Now its 6:00 and you’re starving.

As The BAC Goes Up, So Do The Stupid Decisions
