March 6, 2018, by Spencer Arnold, Food Editor. Comments Off on Saucing with Spencer: Nighttime Food Options On and Off Campus

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. […]

February 26, 2018, by Spencer Arnold, Food Editor. Comments Off on Saucing with Spencer: Homemade Toffee for a Late-Night Fix

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. Comments Off on The Argus Abroad: Searching for American Brunch in Spain

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 […]

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.

February 19, 2018, by Emmet Teran, Camille De Beus, Editor-In-Chief and News Editor. Comments Off on Early Birdies Divulge the Truth Behind Usdan Breakfast

At a school replete with both visible and invisible social structures, Usdan breakfast stands in solidarity with its weekly nighttime counterpart Keg Co-op as a temporary space in which the hierarchy dissipates. The main difference between the two is that every Thursday eve, Keg Co-op draws in the partiers of each friend group, while every weekday […]

February 12, 2018, by Théo Storella, Contributing Writer. Comments Off on Loving Late Night: A Thank-You From the Heart

Late Night holds a special place in the hearts of many Wesleyan students, including mine. It’s become my go-to place for dinner when I’m too lazy to cook and too tired to deal with the raucousness of Usdan at dinnertime. Late Night doesn’t feel as much like cafeteria dining even though it’s in the same […]
