Too much excitement to handle

A lot of our entry discussions involve food. What to buy for snacks and birthday parties, what the candy and condoms jar needs more of (chocolate!), and most important of all, where to eat dinner as an entry.

Dinner occupies most of our debating time, because everyone’s too lazy in the morning to go anywhere but Mission basement for breakfast, everyone’s kind of doing their own thing for lunch, but the entry usually eats dinner together. Things to consider when choosing a dining hall: how far it is, how lazy we are, how good the menus on the dining services website look.

A conversation I had with our JA Ben that is representative of the kind of existential anguish we undergo in attempting to select a dining hall:


It amused me greatly.

Emily and I try to go to Driscoll as frequently as possible, because their food is generally the best.  Unfortunately it’s also the farthest, so we can rarely persuade the rest of our entry to have dinner there, but we usually make it there after calculus for lunch.  Today we had delicious bread with jam and almond butter, plus bad math jokes.  It was, we agreed, very exciting.

Oh, and blame Prof. Adams for the jokes.  He started it.

    What is an entry?

      As a frosh at Williams, you get assigned to an entry, which is basically your family for the year (and beyond?). You live together, hang out together, debate dinner locales together… all under the watch of your junior advisors (JAs). That’s an entry in a nutshell.

        I see. (or, I guess, “I read.”)
