What Students Are Saying

3.90 Average Rating
food is good. after a certain time you get used to it, but that what you are going to hear from every school if they give you a honest answer.
guadalupe from chicago, il
There aren't too many dining options on campus, but each one offers quite a bit a variety.
Tess from LA Grange, IL
No campus food experience is perfect, but Wesleyan food is definitely the best among the other colleges that students visit. IWU has it all, pizza, pasta, burgers, chicken, mashed potatoes, corn and other veggie favorites, as well as asian cuisine and a variety of desserts and ice cream. Make sure to keep a lookout for IWU's incredible ice cream bars which include the create-your-own or the ice cream that comes with caramelized bananas! Students also do not want to miss the chocolate fountain or Sunday Brunch, which has students waking up early on a weekend just to get a taste of personal omelettes, Belgian waffles, fresh fruit, and much much more. The amazing Saga Dave makes sure that our Thanksgiving and Valentines Day dinners are memorable by creating an atmosphere similar to fancy restaurant, fully equipped with themed foods and goodies. Wesleyan also has outdoor picnics with free food, as well as breakfast-at-night events. One of the favorites is definitely Carnival Night, where students are served up carnival-style food such as chicken strips, hot dogs, burgers, fries, funnel cake, ice cream, popcorn, cotton candy, and snow cones. IWU even hires balloon artists from Funbelievable Balloons to create anything the students' inner child desires.

For such a small campus, it is surprising how many options students have to choose from in terms of restaurants and the dining hall. The food is good, and management does a good job paying attention to needs of students with alternative diets and allergies.
Dominique from Mount Prospect, IL
The food options were great last time I visited.
