Best Vegetarian / Vegan-Friendly Options
For many college students, the biggest issue they face in school doesn’t involve finding a major, but simply finding something to eat! Especially if you’re a practicing vegetarian or vegan, the pickings can be rather slim in the dining halls.
If you’re a vegetarian or vegan, you may want to check out College Prowler’s “Best Vegetarian/Vegan-Friendly Options” ranking, with an eclectic top 10 of schools from around the country, from Bowdoin College (no. 2) in Maine to Lewis & Clark College (no. 10) in Oregon.
And what’s the no. 1 school? Pitzer College in Claremont, Calif. In fact, in addition to Pitzer, California has three other schools in the top 10: Pacific Union College (no. 6), Stanford University (no. 7), and University of California – Davis (no. 8).
What makes these schools friendly toward students with strict dietary needs? Options!
Pitzer College often offers organically grown vegetables, nuts, grains, and fruits, and works with Bon Appetit’s Farm to Fork initiative to buy local produce from farmers who use sustainable practices.
