April 23, 2018, by Claudia Stagoff-Belfort, Staff Writer. Leave a Comment

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 Cohen, Staff Writer. Leave a Comment

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. Leave a Comment

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 . Leave a Comment

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 […]

Saucing with Spencer: Nighttime Food Options On and Off Campus

March 6, 2018, by Spencer Arnold, Food Editor. Leave a Comment

Let’s face it, Cardinals. Our middle-of-the-night dining options are, at best, limited. We lack the kind of gastronomic choices that our peers at larger city-based campuses take for granted. But don’t despair—I’ve taken it upon myself to compile a list of our best options. Here, arbitrarily and definitively ranked from worst to best, are your resources. […]

Easy Cheesy: Whey Station’s Moskites Wins “Chopped”

On Tuesday, Feb. 27, The Whey Station partnered with NoRA Cupcake Company in Middletown to air a new episode of “Chopped,” in which the food truck’s co-owner Jillian Moskites competed. During the screening, Whey Station served a unique array of gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches as Middletown locals and Wesleyan students ate, watched old “Chopped” reruns, and talked with […]

Saucing with Spencer: Homemade Toffee for a Late-Night Fix

February 26, 2018, by Spencer Arnold, Food Editor. Leave a Comment

There’s something special about college—a certain feeling, one that you get again and again throughout your life but never as strongly as you did while in school. It’s hard to explain, exactly, but it’s the thing that drives you to eat a half-pound of chocolate at 2 a.m. the night before your hardest final. It’s […]

The Argus Abroad: Searching for American Brunch in Spain

February 26, 2018, by Brooke Kushwaha, Foreign Correspondent. Leave a Comment

My host family uses their oven to store coffee mugs. This is perhaps the only thing you need to know about Spanish cooking. There are bakeries, obviously, and bread is a heavy staple in the Spanish diet, but when it comes to homemade Spanish cooking, your options are boiled or fried. I’ll admit that nearly […]

Road Trip: Dos and Don’ts of Eating on the Go

February 20, 2018, by Spencer Arnold, Food Editor. Leave a Comment

Whether it’s driving home at the end of the semester, taking a spring break road trip, or visiting out-of-state friends or relatives, chances are that most of us will eventually spend an extended amount of time in a motor vehicle. With that in mind, given my proclivity for long road trips, I thought I would […]
