On campus: Of course, the Student Recreation Center, with its state-of-the art exercise facility, is a popular hangout. The CUB has three places to eat, including a Taco Bell. It also includes a Cyber Cafe with a big-screen television and computer stations. The New Holland Library is popular, too, and it includes a graduate student computer lab. There is also the Daily Grind in the Bookie where students can get lunch or coffee and study with friends.
