    Unfortunately, this has to be the worst aspect of attending Wesleyan. The food is not the greatest, but I can genuinely say that the cooks really try hard to take opinions and criticisms to heart to improve our dining experience.

    Food and dinning needs an upgrade. It can be good sometimes in the dinning hall, but there's always Catz Claws and Sunny Bucks when it's not. Some student go to fast food restaurants outside of campus or sheetz.

    The cafeteria offers great choices in food, but the hours are sometimes not suitable. Almost the whole student body is signed up for a meal plan and everyone eats together. During the times when the cafeteria is not open, there are places to get food, but the hours are also limited. Sometimes a drive to Walmart or Sheetz (with great made-to-order food) is necessary.

    I felt they had the same things all the time and were not geared to college athletes who want to eat healthy. Their hours of operation did not match with a college athletes schedule.

    A cafeteria that is without complaints is a rare find wherever you may be, and Wesleyan is no exception. But in all fairness it has improve from one year to the next and does offer a fairly wide variety of foods. It is all a matter of finding something you like.

    The food is a different experience to say the least. There might be digest-ants in the food for the foreign kids to help them break the food down. It'll run through you but they do have the days where they hit the food on the head and its great.

    Greek life has easily been the best part of coming to Wesleyan! I have made so many friends not just within my sorority, but with other Greek members as well! The best part of Greek Life is taking part in the philanthropy, and knowing you have helped others.

    Greek Life is a huge part of the college, with more than 25% of the students being a part of it. They are also highly respected in the community because of the many philanthropy events that are undertaken. If Greek Life is not for you, there are many other organizations to become involved in.

    There are plenty of fraternities and sororities to get into on Wesleyan's campus. There are plenty of Greek week events such as jump week and spring sing. Also frats and sororities get involved in the community which is also great.
