College Gal Cooking: three cheese tortellini with chicken

Nicole Bansen January 27, 2014
It is no secret that college students are less than healthy when it comes to the food they eat. Foods like Easy Mac and ramen are appealing to the average college student's budget as well as to those who do not want to wait around for dinner to cook. But are they good for you? Heck no! I do not know about you, but after a while, I grow sick of that food and look for something with more flavor and nutrients. So, if you are ready to take that step away from typical college food, this dish may be exactly what you need.

Campus recruits non-art students to design event fliers

Nicole Bansen April 28, 2013
If you’ve ever walked around Stony Brook University’s (SBU) campus, chances are you’ve seen plenty of posters and fliers hanging up advertising for big on-campus organizations like the Undergraduate Student Government (USG), the Weekend Life Council and RockYoFace. The posters made by those groups have a very professional look to them that might lead one to think were made by graphic designers, when in fact they’re done by SBU non-art-majoring students.
