          As springtime finally graces the campus of Case Western Reserve University, the warm weather brings along the promise of summer - but also the guarantee of finals week. With all the stress of exams, it's easy to reach for the usual junk food from vending machines only to feel the unhappy growl of hunger a few hours later. Why not reach for something delicious to munch on during study time instead? Thanks to senior Keith Lupton, a Case School of Engineering USG representative, students have a list of the top-rated pizza places on and around campus. Lupton organized the third annual Pizzalympics last October to help students in their quest for the perfect pizza. A panel of judges and students blind taste-tested pizza from several restaurants across the Cleveland area and ranked the pizzas based on smell, taste, visual appeal, quality of toppings, and a myriad of other categories. Here are the results (along with comments from student taste-testers) just in time for finals.
