This is cool. It’s a list of a the top 14 colleges that cater to gluten-free diets. Sadly, neither of my alma maters make the list.
I was pretty impressed when I was in graduate school last year and checked out the campus center’s food offerings. I never stepped foot in the dining hall, but on days when I had to kill a little time between classes, I was thrilled to find several gluten-free products in one of the campus eateries. Being able to find something like an Amy’s frozen entree was a surprise to me, given what I experienced as an undergrad. While obviously most schools still have a long way to go, it definitely seems like things have improved a lot since I was in college the first time.
I first started getting really sick when I was a junior in college. My options were pretty limited. Until I moved off campus, I pretty much lived off yogurt, salads and plain rice. I haven’t tried eating at SUNY New Paltz since graduation, but my instincts tell me it’s probably a lot easier to be gluten-free there now.
