Lazy Student’s Sweet Potato Pancakes

October 29, 2018, by Brooke Kushwaha, Features Editor. Comments Off on Lazy Student’s Sweet Potato Pancakes

Perhaps you’ve been here before. Hungover, tired, and unwilling to lug yourself all the way to Usdan or Swings to get some food in your belly. After a night of socializing, very few are content to eat a bowl of cereal in the morning, but even fewer are brave enough to attempt to make their […]

Cardinal Cravings: A Wesleyan Food Bucket List

May 7, 2018, by Spencer Arnold, Food Editor. Comments Off on Cardinal Cravings: A Wesleyan Food Bucket List

There’s a lot to accomplish here at Wesleyan. From your academic expectations to your extracurricular hopes and dreams, many of you will have a list of goals to get through before you kick the proverbial Wesleyan bucket. A bucket list, if you will. A lot of us want to be able to receive our diplomas with […]

Saucing with Spencer: Saying Goodbye to the Food Section

May 7, 2018, by Spencer Arnold, Food Editor. Comments Off on Saucing with Spencer: Saying Goodbye to the Food Section

There comes a time in every person’s life when they have to give up on their dreams. At least, some of their dreams. We can’t all be astronauts, and we, unfortunately, can’t all be cowboys (cow-people, perhaps). And we certainly can’t all be the Food Editor for the nation’s oldest bi-weekly non-wartime college newspaper. That’s […]

Saucing with Spencer: College Kitchen Essentials

April 30, 2018, by Spencer Arnold, Food Editor. Comments Off on Saucing with Spencer: College Kitchen Essentials

As we progress through our short time here at Wesleyan, we are expected to start becoming “responsible” people—people who can, for instance, cook and clean for themselves, people who don’t call home anytime they have to boil some pasta. Being responsible is hard. I’m not very good at it in most cases. I have, however, picked […]

For the Carousing Cardinals Among Us: The Top Five Bars in Middletown

April 30, 2018, by Emmet Teran, Camille De Beus, Editor-in-Chief and News Editor. Comments Off on For the Carousing Cardinals Among Us: The Top Five Bars in Middletown

It’s times like these, when the semester is on its last kegs, that some reflection is in order. After crawling through a range of bars in downtown Middletown over the past five months, at different levels of sobriety and jollification, we decided it was high time to rank these haunts. These mainstay Forest City watering […]

Usdan Survival Guide: Breakfast Sandwich Supreme

April 23, 2018, by Claudia Stagoff-Belfort, Staff Writer. Comments Off on Usdan Survival Guide: Breakfast Sandwich Supreme

Usdan Hacks is an ongoing column helping you navigate the ins and outs of dining at Wesleyan. Not everyone is cut out for Usdan brunch. It takes a certain amount of dedication to interrupt a deep Saturday or Sunday slumber, pull yourself out of bed and make the trek to Usdan University Center. So, for […]

The Only ED That Matters: Earth Day Prompts Reflections on Consumption Habits

April 23, 2018, by Spencer Arnold, Food Editor. 2 Comments

For those of you that missed the memo, this past Sunday was Earth Day. Earth Day is, of course, celebrated annually by college students who make fun Facebook posts and take those extra few steps to the recycling bin. This year, though, we should all strive to carry through with our positive changes all year, not just […]

Usdan Survival Guide: How to Make a Yogurt Supreme

April 17, 2018, by Sasha Linden-Cohen, Staff Writer. Comments Off on Usdan Survival Guide: How to Make a Yogurt Supreme

Attending a university whose campus barely makes up half of a square mile and whose student population falls just below 3,000 makes it is easy for me to feel as though I’ve seen every face, learned every pattern, and run out of new experiences. But when I shake up my routine, I find that fresh faces and […]

A Dirty Leaf-Eating Bird’s Guide to WesLunch

April 17, 2018, by Spencer Arnold, Food Editor. Comments Off on A Dirty Leaf-Eating Bird’s Guide to WesLunch

Wesleyan is, perhaps not surprisingly, fairly easy to navigate for vegetarians. There are a decent amount of options—especially compared to the dining choices at a number of other colleges that I’ve visited. That being said, we over here at The Argus love ourselves a good list (myself especially), so what follows is one campus vegetarian’s […]

Crêpe-A Diem: The Joy of Really Thin Pancakes

April 9, 2018, by Erin Hussey, News Editor . Comments Off on Crêpe-A Diem: The Joy of Really Thin Pancakes

First things first: it’s pronounced crehp (rhymes with step) not crayp (rhymes with tape). I make this clarification for two reasons. First, my original pitch for this story—“can I write an article about how everybody pronounces crêpe wrong?”—aside from being totally obnoxious, was far too short to sustain an actual article. Nonetheless, I would still […]
