As of Friday, March 25, 2022, the second social season of “Bridgerton” has begun.

Hopefully at least one of these alternatives can give club sports teams some money.

An Ode to the New HUDS Salad Bar

After two weeks (but what felt like a month) of grab ‘n’ go dining, we walked back into the dhalls, hearts full and stomachs empty. We were met with a glorious sight: the New Salad Bar — and yes, it does merit capitalization, it’s that life changing. Red pickled onions, flaked parmesan, fresh olives and peppers, what more could one wish for?
