Food is More Intimate Than We Think

Taking the time to explore St. Louis’ culture could mean a multitude of things for college students. For instance, food is an important aspect of a city as it provides a tasteful tour of the region.

A Definitive Ranking of St Louis Pizza Places by Someone Who is Kind of From St Louis

As a budding social worker on an accelerated graduation track, I take all opportunities I can to delve into conflicts throughout my community. St Louisans are nothing if not extremely opinionated and as someone who lived here for almost four full summers while she was attending boarding school on the East Coast, I consider myself […]

Fun during Finals! Reading Week Events

The Campus Life office offers great ways to do that through it’s Reading Week events in the Danforth University Center (DUC)! A huge fan of this programming myself, I made sure to attend every one. 

Korean-Mexican Fusion? Surprisingly Good!

A few weekends ago, my friends and I decided to get dinner at Seoul Taco on the Delmar Loop. We had heard many people rave about it, so we thought we’d go and see if it lived up to its reputation.

Fun Dorm Activities: Baking!

When I first visited WashU, my favorite thing about the 40 was, and continues to be, the community I’ve found there. There’s so much to do, whether it’s running to Bear’s Den to grab a meal and staying for hours talking with friends, buying candy at the student owned and run Bear-y Sweet Shop, or having a karaoke night with my floormates in the common room. This semester, one of my favorite features of residential life has been the kitchens in my dorm building.

Food Hacks on Campus

A bunch of my friends are studying abroad in Europe right now, and I see their Snapchat stories of dripping gelato cones, mouthwatering pasta plates, and rows of decadent sweets. Although I admit I am jealous, it only makes me more determined to eat the best food here at WashU. Our food, as it happens, is rated #1 out of all the colleges in America.

[Spoiler alert: Salt and Smoke is the name of a restaurant, not some new recreational activity that all the WUSTL students are doing these days. ] In case I wasn’t spoiled enough, things in St. Louis just got even better. Tonight, after weeks and weeks of anticipation, I finally made it out to Salt and […]

My suitemates and I decided that the right way to start this new semester and year was to spend some quality bonding time during the first weekend back in St. Louis. And what better thing to bond over than our love for food? We decided to check out a restaurant called ‘Half & Half” in […]

Food Diaries – Crepes etc.

I might have just found heaven on earth. Or at least something pretty close. Crepes etc. is a small French-style restaurant in the heart of the Central West End in St. Louis that serves a variety of breakfast and lunch crepes, along with other winter staples such as hot chocolate and coffee. I’ve already been […]

Food Diaries – Charlie Gitto’s on the Hill

As promised, I’ve continued my food adventures around St. Louis to report back about some of the most delicious food I’ve ever eaten, and this restaurant is now one of my absolute favorite Italian places I’ve ever been to. This restaurant, Charlie Gitto’s, is located in the Hill, which is home to the Italian section […]

Food Diaries – Mai Lee

WashU is known to have some of the best on-campus food, both in terms of taste and options. But there’s a huge food culture in St. Louis, that I didn’t really begin to explore until most of the way through my freshman year. Since food is obviously something everyone can relate to, I’m going to […]
