With SUBWAY®, students at a Michigan community college enjoy nutritious food as they study and socialize

Between classes, students at Jackson College, a community college located in southern Michigan, tend to gravitate to the Jets Hangar. The recently renovated student center serves as a gathering, studying and entertainment spot for the institution’s more than 7,000 residential and commuter students.
