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.

    The new one is smart and funny and action-packed, and it’s bigger and better and sleeker.
