  • "Let's just say you don't have to twist my arm to get me to Bruff every day for six weeks to eat with them. I really enjoy eating in our freshman dining hall- there are some great options, and Tulane's dining staff goes to great lengths to ensure that there is variety, freshness and deliciousness in all of Bruff's food."
