New! Lunch @ the Library!

Have you ever wanted to just grab something to eat quickly on campus?  Is the vending machine not quite satisfying enough, and the nearest fast food too slow for your mid-marathon study session mini-meal?

The first food truck day is April 25th, and they'll be in the parking lot serving food at 11:00am.  They will not be here after the spring semester ends, and will most likely be coming back when the fall semester starts in a few months.
The current schedule is:
Keep watching here, and our shiny new Twitter feed for updates on when your favorite food truck will be rolling in to make your lunchtime more delicious with less travel time.  :)
