Students write MRU guidebook
As a class project, 30 senior MRU students collaborated this semester to write an insider’s perspective for new and returning MRU students.
Tips and tricks from registering for classes to finding a good parking spot were written to help MRU students easily transition into University. Below is an abstract of the “Where to Eat; On Campus and Walking Distance” chapter:
Tim Hortons has the cheapest full-meal options, but you must be willing to devote at least 15 minutes to standing in line.
Wycked Deli is awesome. It has great cheap lunch options that are made with love. My personal favourite is the grilled cheese with yam fries and sweet sauce for only $6.50. It usually only takes five minutes to get tasty treats.
The vermicelli bowl at Zen will change your life.
If you want to have a healthy sandwich Subway is your best choice.
The Hub serves alcohol and food. Keep in mind seating is limited, but take-out is an option.
-$6 appetizers on Monday and Wednesday nights.
-35-cent wings on Tuesday nights.
Live music and events — see The Hub’s website for more information.
Local 002 has discounts on pitchers for students with proof of identification.
Pita-Pit offers 15 per cent off pitas with a student identification card.
The Tim Hortons south of MRU is less busy than the on-campus location.
