The fall semester is almost over and, let’s be honest, while we love Café 101, sometimes the students at Pace University need a little spice to their lives when it comes to campus dining. With Flex dollars, this is possible! If you don’t already know, you can use your Student ID and get food at places around campus.

Experience New York City cuisine or some comfort food you miss from home. Depending on your meal plan, you can frequent these amazing restaurants when you’re just not feeling what’s in the cafe. You might be wondering, where’s the best place to go? Where can you spend the least amount of money? Where is the best tasting food?

Well, the answers are in folks. A poll was recently taken on twitter, and the results are in.

1. You might be able to guess it, but Chipotle takes the win!

This crowd favorite is comfort from home and to be honest, you can always use some chips and guacamole. Fair priced, and good-tasting, Fulton Street’s Chipotle is always a good choice when you’re craving something different.

2. Not a fan of Mexican food? No problem, because Melt Shop takes second place!

Nothing says good food like a classic grilled cheese. Come out to Melt Shop on Fulton and try their classic grilled cheese, or be adventurous, they have anything you could think of, like loaded tater tots!!

3. Want some classic New York City Pizza? Well, we have the place for you!

Rosella’s Pizza is one of the closest Flex locations to the main building and holds the hearts (and wallets) of many Pace students. Delivery is an option here, so you could have a slice of Buffalo chicken pizza, or Baked ziti pasta pizza waiting for you downstairs in minutes! Insights from students also report that their cheap garlic knots are the best thing in the world. Check it out!

4. Taking last place in the poll is Red Mango

Don’t take it the wrong way, this sweet destination has the goods for any ice cream fan. Frozen yogurt with all the toppings you can imagine? Yum!

While these may be the favorite Flex locations, you would be surprised by the other spots we have available near campus.

Imagine; it’s a typical morning, the café is jammed and all you want is a muffin on your way to class on Williams St. Well, right next to Rosella’s Pizza, you’ll find a quaint diner called Dante’s. The service here is really nice and most importantly, they have muffins, and they accept Flex. They also have a breakfast buffet and other interesting meal options during the day.

Speaking of breakfast food, Flex also hosts Denny’s!This is a perfect place to sit down and get a meal with friends. The food is full of comfort and affordably priced, however, students have recently complained about the service, so make sure to go during a less busy time of day.

Au Bon Pain is also a great Flex location because of its quick service and high-quality food. Whether it’s a panini or a cup of coffee, this dining spot has got it all! It’s quick and it’s cheap, what else could a college student want?

Craving that classic burger joint? Bareburger has this very burger with an eloquent twist. Modernly decorated and hosted with friendly service, this burger joint will give you the best burger you can get, but it may also be the most expensive burger you’ll buy. Don’t get us wrong, it is a perfect place when you’re willing to splurge after a hard day’s work.

Pace offers some really great food options outside of campus and these are not all! Check out all the amazing options at the website below and keep flexing those dollars!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
