Fall may have officially started yesterday, but we all know that summer unofficially ended when your Webmail suddenly had fifteen unread messages from Princeton director of this, coordinator of that, and person in charge of making sure you do that other thing.
Here at The Ink we thought it was time to get to know the people who fill up our inboxes daily. We’re rounding up some names were sure you’ll recognize — but probably not really know— for a special series of 21 questions.
Kickin’ it off is Director of Dining Services Mr. Stuart Orefice — or as most know him, simply Stu.
