While Starbucks is the most obvious choice for a tasty drink on campus, do not put Peet’s Coffee and Tea under the table.

Peet’s has two convinent locations on campus: on the first floor of the Fretwell building and in the lower level of Atkin’s library.

With similar drink options to Starbucks for half the cost, Peet’s Café is the place to go for a two o’clock pick-me-up or a quick drink between classes when you don’t have time to make it to the union.

This week’s Drink of the Week is the Strawberry Passion smoothie, a deliciously pink blend of fresh strawberry and banana.

Healthier than some of the other options on the smoothie menu, this drink is filling and gives a boost of needed energy in between classes.

For an even lighter option, ask them to hold the whipped cream.
