Did you know that President Spanier has a blog? He keeps it on the Chronicle of Higher Education website.

We’d like to post two lists from his blog that are quite interesting. He asked one of the on-campus convenience store managers to provide him with the the top ten best selling non-drink items and the top ten best selling drinks. What follows is quoted from his blog.

1. Dannon Light & Fit Strawberry Yogurt
2. Bagel Bites 3 Cheese
3. Stouffers Mac & Cheese meal
