the ultimate food high
Although SU’s basketball team is not in the ranks this March Madness, it hasn’t stopped our appetites from being star players. Kaitlyn Carl, the media relations coordinator at GrubHub, shared some game day statistics with us that are sure to make your jaws drop—enough to ingest copious amounts of take-out, that is.
According to the data from last year’s March Madness, Syracuse University ranks as the No. 1 hungriest school in the nation—take that, Duke.

Losers.
