This just in. Seven, count ’em, SEVEN new dining options are opening for the new semester. Canyon Pizza Co. in the Student Union has created a big buzz, offering slices for a thrifty $2.75 with fresh ingredients.

The Grill also rolled out some new menu items, such as Country Nachos and the Sriracha Burger, which it introduced to about a dozen food bloggers on Tuesday evening as part of the first Food Blogger Night.
