DJ replied to Cyndi's discussion Mini-fridge in DNC dorms?
"I'd call their HR and ask if they have one, or if you can bring one. I bought this Danby one a few summers ago while living in Aramarks Parkside dorms in Denali. It worked out great for the summer, and as it was rather cheap (with the free…"
