Starbucks is here! Starbucks is here! Possibly the last university in the world to embrace a franchise, Stanford has finally welcomed the wildly popular chain to campus. Thanks to the new Starbucks in Tressider, we no longer have to schlep our bags to the El Camino or University Ave locations. But as much as we collectively rejoice a new place to study that doesn’t have that CoHo-smell, the blinding lights of Axe and Palm or the eery quiet of the Bender Room, beware of the potential calorie mine that is the Starbucks menu. Thankfully, we here at Her Campus have scoured the menu and found your favorite drinks made better!

Craving something cold and sweet, but want to avoid the thinly disguised milkshake known as a frappacino? Look no further than the Iced Caramel Macchiato -skinny that is. Lighten up next to any menu on the item by choosing nonfat milk, skipping the whip cream and sugar-free syrup.
