Guest Post: Don’t Overlook The Food

About the author: Rohan graduated with a full International Baccalaureate Diploma in 2012.  He moved from Northern California to Ohio for college at Case Western Reserve University.  He’s currently majoring in Biomedical Engineering and plans to attend medical school.  So, in the following post where he discusses what to eat, take his words to heart.  Studying Advanced Calculus can be even more difficult on an empty or dissatisfied stomach. For those of you interested in Case Western Reserve University specifically, his suggestions for places to eat near campus can be smart stops on any campus visit to learn more about the local area as well as soak up the student culture.  

Food is such an important thing. There are two main dining halls on campus, Fribley and Leutner. They accept the meal plan and you can also use the meal plan at the Denny’s on campus, the Jolly Scholar, the university’s pub that has amazing milkshakes, and Grab It and Bag It, which are like mini-dining halls. Most fast food restaurants near campus (Chipotle, Panera, Starbucks, etc.) also take what’s called “Case Cash” which you can have in addition to your meal plan and can also be used on vending machines on campus. Also, take advantage on Little Italy, it is so close to campus and has so many good restaurants like Mama Santa’s or Presti’s Bakery. Other locations near campus you should check out are Mi Pueblo, Indian Flame, and Mitchell’s Ice Cream (they all take Case Cash as well). Peanut butter chocolate pretzel yogurt at Mitchell’s is an experience.

In part one, Rohan discusses the “weather” and learning to live in snow.
