This post is an updated version of Sam’s update which was an updated version of wilk’s Eating and Drinking orientation article.
This is part of our 2021 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. This year Wesleyan is ranked #15(we were demoted from #7, sad) in college food on Niche out of all the colleges in the U.S. so you know it’s going to be good. Wes has many options for dining that you can enjoy regardless of your dietary orientation. We’re even ranked #2 by One Green Planet for Most Vegan-Friendly Colleges. There’s a plethora of 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 the part of the orientation series where we remind you to eat your veggies.
so ~springy~ amirite??? (photo courtesy of Bowen He ’21)
Despite what the layers of ice and snow blanketing the campus may signal, it is indeed spring break! Some of you may be jetting (or ride-begging) off into warmer climes, but for those staying
in this wintry wasteland on campus, you’ll need sustenance (even if you’re planning on hibernating through long stretches of break).
Lucky for you, we’ve outlined below what’s going to be open and what’s going to be closed and at what times the open things will be open. Just look for the place you want to eat at and then check the hours. Hint: if the place is not Weshop it probably won’t be open. If you feel like you need to see this information in chart form you can do so on the websites of each place here: (Bon Appetit, WesWings & Red and Black, Libraries).
Last night, on my way to my 7PM class, I saw someone carrying beers to the back of Skull & Serpent. The person tried their best to look nonchalant—coughed, scuffed their feet around, etc., but my interest was already piqued. Something was definitely going on.
On the way home from class, around 10PM, our beloved writer Jackson announced that he wanted mozzarella sticks. On our way to Usdan to retrieve Jackson’s favorite late-night junk food, we noticed something strange: the door to Skull & Serpent was wide open.
Jackson insisted he didn’t want to go inside, because there were mozz sticks waiting for him up in Usdan. But I and our friend Misha absolutely needed to know what was going on. We spent about five minutes creeping to the door and then backing away, unsure of what to do.
