It’s not mom’s cooking—but it’s close. And it’s probably healthier than what you’d make for yourself. The entres, salads and soups on the dining hall buffet and short-order sandwiches, etc., at the Hub diner are delicious and nutritious. And maybe even more important for your health: Meals are a great time to relax and be with friends.
