The Institute for Chocolate Studies (ICS) student club, established in October 2012, is the University's first student-run chocolate manufacturer. The 16-member group makes its own chocolate from "bean to bar" in the University Bake Shop, which means ushering raw beans imported from far-flung locales such as Venezuela or Peru through a process of roasting, shelling, mixing, melting and cooling. The club hosted a booth in May at Reunions 2013 and has permission to sell their treats at the C-Store in Frist Campus Center.
