Eating and Drinking on Campus

Have you ever complained about the food on campus? Take a trip back to the early days of campus dining (or lack thereof!) with the June/July Archives display and find out how much the dining options have grown since the 1960s.

More pictures of Archives displays are available at the Kraemer Family Library's flickr page.
