Even though we're just five weeks into the semester, y'all are already running out of dining dollars. But it may not be because you're eating too much. To survive in this cruel world, you have to dine smarter at Stony Brook University. Follow these hacks and you may find yourself with extra dining dollars by the end of the semester.

1. SAC sides

Head over to the Southern BBQ station in the SAC food court and you can order just a side! From mac and cheese to mashed potatoes to baked beans, you can get a small plate for about $2. It may not be a meal, but it's a steal.

Total price: ~$2.50

2. Rice or noodle bowl for the soul

You know that Jasmine in the Wang Center burns a hole in your pocket every time you buy two sushi platters and an acai lemonade bubble tea. So next time, you can order a small bowl of rice or noodles from the Chinese food place. And maybe pair it with some kimchi or avocado slices.

Total price: ~$2.50–$6.00

3. Happy-tizers

If you're not too hungry, Jasmine also has really good appetizers like tteokbokki (spicy rice cakes) or croquettes (potato-filled goodness).

Total price: ~$3.50

4. Swipe in and don't look back

Swiping into West Side or East Side Dining may seem ridiculous for people with dining dollars, but hear me out. You can eat all the food you want and do work in the dining hall ALL DAY. Unlimited meals for the day for one price. Oh, yes.

Total price: $6.75–$9.95

5. Pay less, eat more

Swiping in after 9 p.m. at dine-in saves you a couple bucks. And if you swipe during breakfast hours, you can get in for just $6.75!

Total price: $6.75–$7.95

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."

I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

God, What's Next?

What you're probably asking yourself during your season of waiting.

God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.
