Editor’s Insight: This article in a student newspaper indicates that the students will have healthier options with the new snack vendor, but it doesn’t specifically state what products, if any, will now be available that weren’t available under the previous operator.
The article does not explain the reason the school made the switch, which is something that the newspapers’ readers would probably be interested in knowing. 10-11-11 By Elliot Maras
