Can you recommend any colleges for vegetarian and vegan students?
I'm trying to help a reporter looking for schools that go beyond offering a salad bar. Whether
it's a special dining hall facility, a school program or class, or anything else vegetarian-friendly, or if there is something unique a college is doing ...
Thank you for your help.
I don't know how unique it is, but the dining hall at the Claremont colleges (http://www.claremont.edu/) has a section/island thingy of just vegan stuff. Everything is labeled too, and the selection has been good every time I've gone.
peta2 has a contest on best vegan friendly colleges, you can check that out!
SoCal only, or beyond?
UC Davis has (decent?) vegan options, although I was only there for a few days for a conference.
Humboldt State University has vegan options - like Tofurkey and vegan cheese at the sandwich bar. I never ate at the J while I was in school there, though.
A few years ago, my son looked at going to Portland State. I noticed several vegetarian options in every eating area (I confess I was not even thinking vegan at the time) There are restaurants lineing the streets around campus and I know several cater to vegans.
