Finals Countdown Includes No Bark, Plentiful Bites


A total of 501 students were served during the spring edition of Dining Services’ Midnight Breakfast this past week in the Keystone Dining Room. The tasty tradition served up a menu that included pancakes, massage therapy and giveaways – including 110 cases of Organic Amp energy drinks that were gone in minutes. Madigan Library renewed a tradition of its own for anxious students: a visit from therapy dogs that tolerate near-endless petting in the name of stress relief.
