Even though the on-campus dining options at The University of Scranton are great – we are ranked #15 in the country for “Best Campus Food” – there comes a point in almost every student’s college career when they find themselves awake at 2 a.m., stressed, trying to finish their paper before tomorrow’s deadline and hungry.
Want to make sure you’re well-prepared for any last minute cravings? We’ve got a list of quick and simple recipes to help you out that can all be made from your residence hall!
