You’ve spent hours in the library, downed multiple espresso shots in order to stay awake, and given up on sleep all for one thing. Ah yes, it’s midterm season.

Now that you’ve survived these past two weeks of midterms, hopefully your professors will give you a break. Nonetheless, treat yourself for all your hard work, and stop by Cal Poly’s on campus Starbucks.

Due to the past two weeks, you probably cringe a little at the word. But I promise you, there are no espresso shots or Venti double-shot iced lattes involved.

Instead, try these yummy “Secret Menu” drinks, and give yourself a pat on the bat for your hard work.
