Had a burger and onion rings, beer and watched the Olympics on tv with my boyfriend and the bartender (sat at the bar). Had a wonderful night and then retired to my room.

We were able to walk around campus in the pouring rain and find this treasure. A burger is a burger, but the ones they cooked there were FABULOUS! There were some alumni meeting there, but the Bar guy made everyone happy!

For school food, you'll be very pleasantly surprised. There is both hot and cold food, all freshly prepared, and a very good salad bar. And the price is right! Sure wish the Commons had been there when I attended Thunderbird...!
