The COM LC barbecue lives on

For a busy college student, not much is better than having the opportunity to get free food and bond with friends, classmates and laid back professors after a long day of classes.

In the morning, it is the waffles and french toast sticks. In the afternoon, it is the buckets of freshly cooked french fries.
