Dewies is an amazing place. It is open all the time and just makes life so much simpler. I do not have to worry about grocery shopping, or meal planning. All I have to do is walk in and get my Student ID swiped. A huge variety of food is available all the time, whether it be a crêpe for breakfast in the morning or a cheese burger and fries for a late night meal. After my meal, I don’t even have to do dishes! Also a friend is always in Dewies, so I never have to eat alone. My life as a student is simpler with Dewies. It gives me more time in my day to focus on my studies, or get a few extra minutes of sleep in the morning.Aidan Peck, Class of 2018
