This is why Media Services has Photoshop.

Spring Break is approaching and we all know D-Hall likes to repeat menus week after week. Even though putting bread and cheese together takes minimal effort, and is the perfect cop out for “what do we serve to hold the kids over until they leave?”, let’s be real: grilled cheese is the best.

Do yourselves a favor and look at and the (fbook)

And if you’ve got the writing bug, submit your stuff to
