Remember way back in the day, when we walked down that little path past the Nics into a giant spaceship for crappy food? Oh, you do? Well then you’re probably in the Class of 2010 and in the minority at Wesleyan. The sad(ish) truth is that our class was the last to dine in Mchonghyeueyhg Hall ( I never knew how to spell it), which the rest of you might know as that weird structure over by the Nics/Hewitt or as the site of the Waste Not! sale earlier this semester. Once we graduate, no one on this campus will know what went down back when MoCon was the place to be for brunch, lunch and dinner. Unless…
It’s time to put our memories together through photos and anecdotes about the dining hall we loved to hate. And that is why Wesleying is having its MoCon Retrospective. Woohoo!
Now I KNOW some of you must have nice pics of the greasy food and crowded eating area. Or you might have pics and stories of Grandma, or the meat guy, or… the other people. See, dammit, I already forgot them! This is terrible! Before Wesleyan became the sterile, beige-colored place it is today, we had MoCon. Whether the food sucked or not, the place had so much of the character that is lacking in Usdan. Let’s remind the young’uns that the dining experience does not have to be as organized, clean, and dull as what they’re used to. Let’s challenge the institutional memory that the mainstreaming administration in many ways depends on running in 4-year cycles.
Submit whatever you have to staff[at]wesleying[dot]org and we’ll run a nice little series on MoCon. Please put MoCon Retro in the subject line and have fun!
