Coffee on campus: Where to go

As autumn begins, and the era of pumpkin spice everything is upon us, coffee becomes a tired college student’s best friend.

On campus, there are six coffee shops to visit and fill that hole in the heart that only sweet caffeinated drink can. Here’s a list of the six, and what is worth visiting about each of them.
