Looks like September is coming to a close. As Midterms start, consider taking a study break at some of these events and grab food that you don't have time to make for yourself.

Have you taken your professor out to lunch?

Are you in the college (which I presume to be the overwhelming majority)? College Council sponsors the Take Your Professor Out to Lunch program. Enjoy a free lunch (up to $15) in the Garden Room (or another on grounds location) with a professor and one other student. To sign up, go to Monroe 103 and speak with Mrs. French. To top it off, you can do this twice a semester!

This site could come in handy, though I am not positive how up to date it is... You can also follow @CVilleBars for more drink specials.

Lets be charitable

In the spirit of free food, I figured we could provide others with free food by supporting, a non-profit website that is owned by and supports the United Nations World Food Program. For every question you answer correctly, Free Rice will donate 10 grains of rice to those in need. Happy playing (and eating)!
