4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are many restaurants near Wesleyan College.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is just a lot of fast food or chain restaurants in the area

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is a variety of different restaurants, and there are some that are right across the street of the college.

1 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Definitely not a lot to choose from. Wesleyan is located more in Forsyth than in Macon proper, so unless you feel like driving a ways off, the main things available are fast food and a couple of other chains. I gave it a D+ because the prices are affordable, and the froyo place gives a student discount.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Wesleyan is located is a great area of Macon, GA! Within five to ten minutes walking or driving, a person can get awesome cupcakes and delicious sushi, or go to downtown Macon for some quintessentially Macon cuisine. The area has pretty much any food to quell any hungry!

A student's access to a variety of good food depends on whether or not she's willing to explore the nearby areas. There are a few restaurants within walking distance of campus, one of which offers a discount to Wesleyan students. Kroger is also in the same shopping center, which is wonderful, especially when someone needs to purchase groceries at the last minute. If an individual limits herself to these three resources, however, she will not experience the dining experience that Macon has to offer. Fast food, Japanese, Mexican, and American-style options are located on Zebulon Road, which is only a few minutes away from the school. When seeking a better selection, it is best to check out the restaurants downtown, even if it requires an extra 15 minutes in the car. Fine dining, Southern style, Thai, Greek delis, Vietnamese, Chinese, seafood, Italian, and much more await hungry customers. Prices vary, but any type of Asian, Greek, or Italian cuisine usually has college-friendly meals. 

It is easy to find one's favorite meal, as long as an individual does not limit herself to a two-mile radius. Tom Hill Sr. Boulevard is another road with a few good food choices, but occasionally, it gets overcrowded. In regards to keeping kosher, students may be able to find something on a menu in Macon that is edible; however, the kosher section in grocery stores is the best option if she does not want to take chances.
