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!

Whether you need an early-morning munch or an after-class snack, a warm blueberry muffin is a great (and healthy!) option. All you need are a few simple ingredients, a mug, and a microwave! More here.
