Unofficial Orientation Series 2017: Eating and Drinking at Wes

This post is an updated version of the Eating and Drinking installment of last year’s Orientation Series.

 

This is part of our 2017 Unofficial Orientation Series. A quick reminder that you can check out the welcome post here and past years’ series here.

Eating and drinking is a necessity for all living beings, even during your hazy college days. While we all have to adjust our food standards from delicious home-cooked meals to university food, trust me, it could be worse. Wesleyan has many options for dining that you can enjoy regardless of your dietary orientation. Although we were only ranked #9 for Most Vegan-Friendly Colleges, we still have awesome vegan food and our friends at the Mongolian Grill are always willing to cook up a chicken tortilla topped with cheese if it’s protein that you want.

This is a part of the Unofficial Orientation Series 2016 to remind you to eat your veggies.

Fundraising Week at the Star and Crescent

In the wake of the election, we at the S&C want to extend an invitation to anyone feeling scared, frustrated, or outright angry.  We have always endeavored to try and make the restaurant a safe, comfortable space that promotes dialogue and discussion over some tasty food.  But, it is more important now than ever to make a concerted effort to support the marginalized communities most affected by recent events.  Therefore, this week, we will be collecting donations for a different charity at every meal (of course, any and all contributions to these fundraisers are optional and left to your discretion). If you cannot make it to one of the week’s fundraisers, but would still like to contribute, we will post links to the sites where you can donate to the organizations directly.  We hope you will join us in breaking bread and spreading awareness about a few wonderful causes.

Descriptions of the organizations and their websites are listed at the bottom.

Hell Night at the Star and Crescent

Hey there spice fans,

We are happy to announce the Star and Crescent’s first ever Hell Night! Inspired by the famously fiery feasts of the Cambridge restaurant East Coast Grill, we hope to bring together Wesleyan’s lovers of spicy food for a truly special meal. While we guarantee we can challenge even the most seasoned heat-eaters with our spiciest options, there will be something for almost everyone (with that being said, all options will be at least mildly spicy, meaning there will not be non-spicy dining options). So if you like your food to have a kick, this is the meal for you!

Wesleyan Hunger Banquet

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?

Join us for a Hunger Banquet sponsored by the Hunger and Homelessness Program, and the Interfaith Council!

A Hunger Banquet is an interactive simulation of global inequality related to food, hunger, and income. Attendees will share a meal and participate in a discussion facilitated by fellow Wesleyan students.

Tickets or non-perishable items are required for admittance. Tickets will be available for a minimum $2 donation at Usdan during lunch on 10/27, 10/31, 11/1, and 11/2. You can also RSVP on Facebook.

Will you be one of the lucky ones? Or will you leave hungry?

Date: Wednesday, November 2
Time: 5:00-6:30 PM
Place: Albritton 311
Cost: $2+ donation or non-perishable items
