College students are hungry. It is part of the nature of being young, in school and poor of pocket; a cheap meal is a student’s best friend. That is why the issue of local eateries is always a big deal on a college campus, especially if they are near the dorms. Sometimes the local restaurants even cause controversy. Take for instance the case of Boston University and Taco Bell.
Until 2008, the fast food taco joint had a prime location on BU’s campus, in Warren Towers, the second-largest dorm in the nation and home to many of the school’s underclassmen. Despite its convenience for lunch on-the-go or for a late night snack, its time at BU did not last.
