New food options on campus!

There are a couple of new spots on campus for a quick snack or a beverage and I've tried them both! Last week, the new “Grab n' Go” in Lincoln Residence Hall and a new "Juice Bar" in the TRAC opened to long lines of hungry students. The “Grab n Go” has a nice variety of ethnic and specialty items (including fresh wheat grass) and the “Juice Bar” has some unique offerings as well that include Island Oasis smoothies (good for replenishing energy after a workout)! A special thanks to our international students who made recommendations for preferred food items. I couldn’t resist buying a Pease’s caramel apple at the "Grab n' Go (Pease's is a famous Springfield candymaker) and I also sampled the smoothies at TRAC. Its nice to have a couple new places to take a break! Thanks UIS Food Service!
