Freddy’s Wraps and Wings to Go is located here on Main Street in Newark and it is delicious! It is called Freddy’s Wraps and Wings to Go because it literally offers everything you could want to eat. My friends and I love to order here when we don’t feel like going to the dining hall because the wings are amazing and it is totally affordable! Also, one of my really close friends also works there, so we always know the specials. My friends and I ordered tonight and I took some pictures! Below are the buffalo garlic wings and the craisin salad! Yummy!
I just wanted to jump on here and share a little experience I had tonight! I went with some of my friends to an event hosted by Alpha Phi Omega, a service co-ed fraternity here on campus called Operation Warm. Since I didn’t end up joining a sorority here on campus, I have interest in joining this service fraternity and really enjoyed learning and supporting Operation Warm. Operation Warm gives coats to kids living in poverty around the country and especially in Delaware. Not only do they give kids coats, they encourage young kids to go to school warm, eat healthy lunches there, and overall be more productive members of society. I really enjoyed the experience and hope to do more events like this with Alpha Phi Omega.
Here is the truth about college food: it’s not great. It helps if you’re not a picky eater and are willing to eat cereal for lunch. I have taken a picture of my dinner tonight and am going to talk about the Rodney Dining Hall in general. It’s located on West Campus for easy access for kids who live in Dickinson and Rodney. This isn’t my favorite place to eat here on campus, but it is the closest to where I live.
Today for dinner I chose the vegetarian option, the veggie bowl. Once you’ve lived on campus for a while, you start to recognize the rotation of food choices. I actually like this option, which is why I decided to take a picture. Basically, you take a little bowl and fill it up with raw vegetables like asparagus, broccoli, squash, tofu, peppers, onions, and lettuce. Then they steam it, add rice, and you choose your choice of sauce, my personal favorite is the peanut sauce (even though it is pretty spicy!) Rodney has copious amounts of drinks as well, so overall my meal tonight was pretty good.
Stay tuned for my favorite off campus meals! :)
For the past two days I have been rushing for the Panhellenic Sororities here at UD. The best way to describe this experience is overwhelming. It is true what they say, you have to go through it to understand it. It is extremely fun and time consuming but exciting at the same time. I am so happy I decided to rush I think it’s going to be a great journey for me to embark in here at college. Here is a picture of my name tag that I had to make for rush! This is something you have to wear to display your name, major, year, and recruitment number—it’s also a chance to get creative! I will blog more once the process goes on!!!
After a long and relaxing break, I am finally back to my home here at the University and happy about it! Even though my room feels small, the bathroom is always hot, and I am more stressed than ever, I am excited to get back into the swing of things! Today was the first day of classes and I have high hopes for this semester. Ultimately, my goal this semester is to make the dean’s list (having at least a 3.33 GPA) which I hope I can achieve.
Along with a full course load, this weekend I begin rushing for Greek Life here at the University! I am very eager/excited/nervous about this. Even though the schedule looks pretty grueling (by this I mean being at a 7am meeting on a Sunday…) I think the experience will be rewarding. I am going to blog throughout this experience, because I feel like joining a sorority is somewhat a mystery and I would love to share what it is actually like for reference for those who are interested!
Overall, I’m pumped for Spring 2012 and to blog about all the things I’ll be doing until the end of my freshman year!
