Fine Dining at Schools That Aren’t Wesleyan

NYTimes does a feature on colleges which draw in students with delicious dining menus – pictured above is one of Virginia Tech’s dining halls – chandeliers! Does Star and Crescent have that many chandeliers? Clearly chandeliers are a mark of a superior dining facility.

Here is what looks like a fancy version of WesWings at Virginia Tech:

Bowdoin is the star attraction in the article, but Wesleyan gets cited for its commitment to organic food:

Food was definitely on Jenna Gruer’s agenda last fall as she visited colleges coast to coast. Jenna, an 18-year-old vegetarian from St. Louis, Mo., was particularly impressed by Wesleyan University.

“I heard a lot about organic food co-ops and the little organic store where you can use your dining card, and those things are important to me,” she said of its offerings.

Food alone might not be a reason to apply, she said, but it might eliminate colleges with lesser dining halls.

Great, organic food, but I can’t help being a little disappointed by a typically lackluster Salisbury steak from the Usdan Classics bar when I see meat like this available elsewhere:Full article: Latest College Reading Lists: Menus With Pho and Lobster

    VT has different dining plans depending on how wealthy you are: rich students can afford higher quality meal plans/food/dining facilities.
