It was well worth it, though. The food was great, and it was free. You should never argue with free food, in my opinion.
It was also nice meeting some other people around here. Other than my roommates, I still only know a few people here, and life is rather boring. I beat Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver the other day, after having just gotten it less than a week ago, but I still love that game. One of the best I've played.
