It an end of an era at Rutgers as officals get rid of so-called "fat" sandwich truck

Some Rutgers University students call it an end of an era.

The grease trucks that have sold calorie-laden so-called "fat" sandwiches for years will be displaced from Lot 8 on College Avenue in New Brunswick to make room for student housing.

Rutgers officials expect to disperse the vendors around the New Brunswick and Piscataway campuses.

Rutgers spokesman E.J. Miranda tells The Star-Ledger of Newark ( ) the school has been in discussions with the food truck operators, who are expected to begin relocating next Thursday.

Some food truck operators will be invited back to set up outdoor stands in a plaza that will be created for the new housing complex.

Food trucks began showing up at Rutgers in the 1960s and were moved to Lot 8 in the 1990s.
