I never really had friends in my major until I joined HKN. It was a great decision.

A hidden gem on campus. This student-managed oasis is perfect for a fast bite or chilling out. The right place to go if you are really hungry and on a budget. Expect affordable coffee, fruit, packaged snacks, and, the best idea ever, popcorn! If you are lucky you can play old school Gamecube/xbox. BTW music is good.
