PETA’s Most Vegetarian-Friendly Colleges

Wesleyan is in the running for PETA2’s 2008 Most Vegetarian-Friendly Colleges in the Nation, along with 31 other schools competing in a sort-of-geographically-arranged online elimination grid.

Our most immediate competitors are the University of Rhode Island, Brandeis, and SUNY Fredonia. Seeing as how we are the only one among these schools with a significant Internet presence, that much should be in the bag.

PETA2 has this to say about vegetarian eating at Wes:

At a university legendary for its student activism (particularly with issues relating to sustainability, animal rights, and labor wages), the dining halls have responded by giving students what they want—amazing vegan options. With regular meat-free choices available at each dining hall, some of the many standouts include barbecue tempeh wraps, Moroccan-style chickpea and tomato stew, and seared tofu with broccoli over sticky rice.

Fair enough. Even if you love eating meat, who here doesn’t appreciate Wesleyan winning Internet competitions? Vote here, the first round ends on November 6:

    Not taking part. PETA’s objectification of women in their adds and protests frustrates me to no end.

    Oh, come on. There's a hot vegan entree (always with protein, and sometimes especially delicious (tofu lasagna!! shepherd's pie!)) at every meal, plus vegan breads & nut butters, plus vegan pizza, plus vegan side dishes, plus a vegan dessert, plus a nice salad bar, plus veggie hot dogs at kosher, create-your-own-stir-fry, plus usually other vegetarian options (ie. vegetables, pasta, etc) at the other stations. Our options are obviously more limited than if we weren't vegan/vegetarian, but it's tough to complain too much.

    Veggie food here does not deserve recognition or accolades. It’s really not as good as it should be. SUNY Fredonia in ’08!

    come on guys, it’s decent food. The Usdan vegan section has consistently good options compared to what’s at other sections, and the lines are always shorter.

    It may be more an issue of if the vegetarian food is as mediocre as everything else than if it is bad compared to outside the bubble.
