Now that we’re 27 days into the spring semester, you’ve probably had enough time to set up an eating routine, whether that’s anywhere from 0-2 Usdan meals a day or always getting takeout from Weswings or ordering all your food bulk and never leaving your house. And with co-op swipe day coming up this Wednesday, it’s probably a good time to make sure you’re on track with your meal plan.
Wesleying’s Points Calculator is here to help! Just click on the meal plan you have, enter how many meals and/or points you have left, and it should tell you if you’re using more or less than a projected weekly value. (Spring break isn’t being counted, so if you’re going to be here, plan on leaving some extra points for those two weeks.) You can check how many meals and points you have left here.
As always, if this points calc isn’t working, email staff[at]wesleying[dot]org to let us know. Happy eating!

Navigating through thousands of different product descriptions is a pain, but it’s ultimately worth it if you want to maximize what you get out of the campus grocery.
As of yesterday afternoon, all our WesCards are working again. That means that now, I can stroll into any campus dining establishment to use any number of the now 1,827 points I have. 1,827!!! What on earth am I going to do with all these points? Why do I have to pay for them every semester when I know that I’m definitely not going to be able to use all of them? (I am a small person and do not eat very much.) These are not questions that concern you.
What may concern you, though, is that you can use your points to order from the ~*~Weshop bulk catalog.~*~ Basically, if you want things that Weshop doesn’t normally sell in the storefront, like dried beans or 2-pound bags of rice, and if you want them in considerably larger quantities for considerably cheaper than it would be to buy the tiny packages once a week every time you run out, the bulk catalog has you covered.
It remained an elusive paper copy deep in the office annex of Weshop until last fall, when the kind people of Bon Appétit put it online for us to use. kg discovered in 2015 that she could order her diva cups through the bulk catalog. Some other gems include children’s multivitamins, something they’ve labeled only as “DRINK,NATRL STRSS RELIEF,” condoms, and brewers yeast for all you people who try to make your own alcohol.
The full catalog list is HERE, and the order form is HERE. Since the order form is view-only, a good way to fill it out is to copy it to a new spreadsheet in your drive doohickey and then fill in all the values there.
You may ask, “But how do I use it? How do I navigate this list of 24,000 different purchasable items??”

How many times have you heard the phrase, “I’m starving!” before going to eat dinner at Usdan? Is that what hunger really looks like? What about on a global scale?
Are you ready to find out?

The weather remembered it’s fall, your midterms are (possibly) taking a brief hiatus, and football-loving alumni will soon be flooding the campus, reminiscing about carefree days of yore. If you’re staying on campus this break, you’re in luck! There are actually more on-campus dining options open than is usual during fall break.
Perhaps this is to make up for the fact that they have apparently given up entirely on posting break hours of operation on the university website. Lucky for you, Wesleying is on it (and Bon Appétit posted the hours outside of Pi). Usdan heard my wordpress-draft pleas and posted the schedule here. If you are for some reason opposed to the university website, however, check after the jump for the schedule.

It’s not news to me that Weshop has a special-order catalog. Now that I’m in my senior year, I’ve had some time to hear stories of people ordering from the catalog to economize points by buying in bulk, or to buy brands that Weshop doesn’t stock in-store. I first heard about Weshop bulk ordering in 2015 from Wesleying-er kg, who not only knew the ins and outs of the process… but also found out how to bulk order DivaCups. From Weshop.
But back then, ordering from the catalog wasn’t especially convenient — or well-advertised. Those in the know could venture to the back of the store, where they could look at a catalog in the office and place orders. But, this meant you had to go out of your way just to see the catalog options, and you had to know it was there.
That’s why this year is an exciting time — for the first time in Weshop history, students can access the catalog and place orders online.
