After two months of photocopying documents and faxing reports for senators, congressmen and lawyers at your internship, it’s time to treat yourself to a weekend of down time. D.C. puts shore-goers in driving distance of several beaches in Delaware, Maryland and Virginia. Each will give you the sun (hopefully) and sand you’ve been waiting for, […]
Surprising many students, the University extended Aramark’s food service contract for 10 years. Along with this extension comes Aramark’s $4.5 million investment in a completely remodeled J Street.
