The meal was as cheap as it was simple, and I enjoyed the satisfaction of cooking it. So, in search of a carton of eggs and milk, I went to the West campus convenience store — only to realize that there weren’t any there.

Now, the Blue Devils will look to close out the season strong in order to finish 8-4, an identical record to last year.

Studying abroad is meant to be a time of self-discovery, and this restriction not only adds stress to the student body but also promotes an elitist socioeconomic culture and a Western superiority complex.
