Thought this might give some people hope, and I though it was a nice article. I don't go to this school and I don't plan on going to Northwestern, but it made me happy and gave me hope, and I'd like to share it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><a href="http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2011/11/27/northwestern-tops-list-of-most-vegan-friendly-colleges/" target="_blank">http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2011/11/...ndly-colleges/</a><br><br><i>“The dining services department reports that between <b>35 and 55 percent of students</b> select a vegetarian or vegan entrée every day,” the peta2 assessment said. “With options such as tofu French toast, country-fried seitan steak with vegan mashed potatoes and vegan curried tofu with jasmine rice, it’s easy to see why.”</i>

It's encouraging that so many students are chosing veg*n and I'm dying to know more about this "tofu French toast".

I know a bunch of people who attend there, and it's a nice school, so I'm glad to see this! <a href="http://www.nucuisine.com/" target="_blank">And they're proudly displaying that they won the most vegan-friendly campus over on their dining site.</a> <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

I went to Sarah Lawrence College, which had a vegetarian/vegan dining hall, and vegetarian/vegan options in every dining hall. It was extremely veg friendly.

It just goes to show that when there are vegan options, even typically omnivorous people will choose them now and then. A little bit here and there can make a big difference.<br><br>
I hope this is a growing trend.

I am in Texas and the University of North Texas has a separate dining hall that is entirely vegan! Maybe my son will go there and then when I go visit I won't have to worry about my food!

I know that <a href="http://www.veganchicago.com" target="_blank">Vegan Chicago</a> has leafleted there several times, and I believe MFA does on occasion as well. I think that's partly the reason why so many people choose to eat veg*n there. I can definitely see the number go up even more over time, and with many Chicago-area colleges (tons of awesome restaurants).

At Miami of Ohio, there is a Veg*n dining option in two of the dining halls on campus. They use food-court style concepts a lot in their dining halls, and the veg*n offering is one of the "stores" available. There are also veg*n options at the other concepts as well; that one just has more.
