As Norcross trudged through a long rainy spout, even the weather seemed to reflect the mood of all Wesleyan’s students and faculty as they said farewell to a loyal and much-beloved companion, the Table of Room W180.
Wesleyan super fans, while fond of Friday night lights, go out of their way to support other athletic and artistic endeavors. Whether it is witnessing the girls’ volleyball team ace Parkview, enduring the sauna-like heat of the natatorium to cheer on the Water Polo Wolves or congratulating cross country runners for a race well run on an early Saturday morning, these people give their all to show athletes the true meaning of community.
Each Friday night, Wesleyan super fans crowd Henderson Stadium to watch another battle between the Wolves and their opponent.

Bigger named restaurants such as Chipotle or California Pizza Kitchen are always full of Wesleyan members, but there are many places that not many people have even heard of. Places like Hog and Ale, Dagwood’s, Gino’s Pizza and Pita all surround the Wesleyan bubble, yet people rarely go to them (so I thought).
As I conducted a poll from the current junior and senior class, I came to realize 35 seniors and 27 juniors have all eaten at one or more of the restaurants listed above. Due to that unexpected number, I decided to take matters into my own hands and eat, observe and critique each place.
