Fort Myers Coffee Cup a quaint, comfy getaway

If typical coffee shop chains are losing their appeal with their congested lines and over-crowded study spots, then I have uncovered your new addiction. Recently, I have found myself becoming aggravated with mainstream coffee chains such as Starbucks, with their never-ending lines, limited seating, and in-and-out atmosphere. Going to a coffee shop should be a relaxing experience that takes your stress away, rather than causing anxiety with their constant hustle and bustle. Here is my solution  — visit the Coffee Cup.

Snack break: healthy food for a healthy mind

Eating right is important, but eating healthy is extremely important. College students tend to be always busy, with hectic schedules and little free time on their hands. Whether we are busy attending to back-to-back classes, work, practice, or any other commitment, we all end up spending most of our time on campus or running from work to class or vice-versa. This is why many students don’t have time to cook or plan their daily meals, which leads them to microwaved and processed foods like the famous Ramen Noodles and Pop-Tarts. To avoid gaining the “Freshman 15” or any unwanted...
