Top 10 Tips to Feed Our Addiction to Tasti D-Lite

Photo courtesy of Wikimedia Commons. Our “Top Ten” this week recommends ways to make frozen yogurt more law student-friendly. Listen up, all of you future entrepreneurs!We know the most exciting addition to the Georgetown Law campus is the Tasti D-Lite kiosk.  If you’re like us, you’re continuously looking for excuses to go grab yourself a big ol’ serving of fro yo.  Here are our recommendations to improve the Tasti D-Lite experience for law students:

2. Serve a Rocky Road flavor to remind us all of 1L year.

3. Or maybe serve Chocolate Fudge to remind us of our job search.
