Yes, college food can suck -- but sometimes the school actually notices and takes action. After students gave poor reviews to a food vendor in the Auraria student union, administrators asked for proposals for a replacement -- and Infinitus Pie, a local, family-owned pizza chain, won the slot third location in the Tivoli Student Union on the Auraria campus.
But its pizzas aren't the only aspect of Infinitus to make the grade. Instead of the typical tip jar, IPIE has a jar that raises funds for the $180 Million Dream Fund, to "give back to the community by helping educating future generations." Infinitus's dream is to turn IPIE into a national chain that could fund major scholarship program. But in the meantime, anything dropped into that jar will be shared with students.
