Sometimes, you just gotta get some munchies or soda, but the Hungry Slug is mysteriously closed. Or, it's 3:30 in the morning in Engineering 2 and you finally remember that, even though engineering majors often take on superhuman qualities, they do need to eat occassionally. Where can you go? Who can you trust? Vending machines! Sticks of gum go for $.60, regular candy for $.85, bags of chips for $1.00, large candy for $1.25, water bottles for $1.00, and soda for $1.50. Other items vary in prices.
