  • Dorm life is awesome! I'm an only child so I was a little nervous going in. But we are all family now.…

    One thing I found interesting about the dining hall was that if you're in a hurry, there is an option to basically do a take-out mean... definitely NOT something I've seen or heard of anywhere else.

    It's just average cafeteria food. We do have a decent selection for buffets though. And the grab and go is nice too. Also, there is a coffee house in the student union that serves really good food!

    It's surprisingly decent when you first get here, but it's mainly the same thing every day and it gets old really fast. (It's called the ROT by many upperclassmen)

    The food is awful. Everyone jokes about it. I do think they are getting a new provider next year.

    Once again, as a commuter, I donâ��t partake in the dining experience on campus, but Iâ��m well informed on the dining situation on campus. Here at Wesleyan, students are offered 25 meals each week, and often times, students arenâ��t able to eat that often if they tried. There is a main cafeteria, affectionately known as â��the rotâ��, which has a very wide selection of meals three times a day. If youâ��re looking for a quick bite, thereâ��s the â��Grab-n-Goâ��, which provides fresh fruit, sandwiches, chips, and muffins for students on the go. But wait, thereâ��s more! If neither of the aforementioned options are open, Wesleyan also has a small caf�© below the rot and around the corner from â��Grab-n-Goâ��, which offers a daily hot meal, sandwiches, a plethora of beverage options, and sometimes candy. The caf�© also has a nice lobby with comfortable furniture for study groups, tables, and on occasion, performances by poets, musicians, and the like.

    The dining hall is awesome. They have a lot of options to pick from and I really enjoy the coffee bar with the grab-n-go snacks.

    3 sororities, 4 fraternities. I was told that basically, if you want to be in a sorority, it's almost guaranteed, given that you go through the entire rush process.

    There are several Greek houses on campus. All very involved in the community and the college itself. Greeks are pretty low key here; little of that superiority you sense on some campuses. Everyone should try Rush, the experience is fun.

    I joined a fraternity and have nothing but good things to say about greek life on campus. No matter what fraternity or sorority it is, we all work together.
