On April 27, 2003 the Wesleyan
Student Assembly passed (18-5-2) EON's resolution calling for the removal
of eggs from caged, debeaked, or force-molted hens, and also for exclusive
sale of organic free-range eggs in WeShop and the removal of eggs as non-essential
ingredients in other dining facilities.
In addition, the WSA recognized that the consideration of animal well-being
is a legitimate factor in responsible decision making.
WESLEYAN UNIVERSITY IS THE FIRST AMERICAN UNIVERSITY TO HAVE A STUDENT
ASSEMBLY TAKE A STAND AGAINST BATTERY CAGES AND FACTORY EGG FARMING.

Our Campaign Materials
Unfortunately ARAMARK requires eggs to be pasturized to be used in campus
dining halls. Currently, we are unaware of pasterized free-range
eggs. This means that the eggs used in the campus dining halls will
still be battery eggs. In order to reduce the amount of battery eggs
consumed, Wesleyan Student Assembly supports the replacement of products
containing eggs wherever eggs are not essential ingredients, such as replacing
egg noodles with non-egg noodles or using egg replacers in baked goods
until Aramark is able to utilize free-range eggs.
Thanks to the over 750 students
who signed our petition!
The eggs sold
by Guida's Dairy
are produced in the manner discussed on this website. We have been
successful in getting Weshop to stop selling eggs from Guida's!
Read the full resolution.
We may have won our campaign, but the fight isn't over...
Don't buy battery eggs or any products that have battery eggs in them.
Remember that in the United States all eggs and products with eggs
that aren't explicitly labeled as not being battery eggs are produced in
a manner similar to what is explained on this website.
Help change the law. In 1999, the European Union voted to ban the
use of battery cages. Sadly, the US has not followed. Contact
your representatives and demand that they take a stand against blatant
animal cruelty by banning battery cages.
