Hearing the sound of the student’s footsteps coming down the ramp into the cafeteria. Students sit in booths on their phones and laptops, finishing up final essays. They munch on today’s menu of egg sandwiches, beef biscuit, “South of The Border” pizza, and hash-browns.

“I have a headache, but other than that I am rolling with the punches,” a freshman said when questioned about how she felt about the last weeks of the semester.
