A group of 8 babies from the Class of 2018 will be revealed as the test specimens for the first study of the Mustang Dining Hall effects on the Freshmen 15.

The “Hungry 8” as they have been nicknamed by many, were selected at random during the first trimester of their mothers’ pregnancies. For the entire first semester, the Hungry 8 were on a strict diet of three meals a day from the Mustang Dining Hall.

Come out to the Global Resource Center auditorium to see before and after images. Hear from the Hungry 8 on their experiences, ups and downs, and whether they want to continue their unique diets.
