1 Leggett Anslee Leggett Dr. Bray WISe 101 28 November 2018 Dining Hall Options: Variety and Change The dining hall is a place where everyone should be free to eat what they want. College kids are always hungry, but what some people don’t realize is that some people have dietary needs and restrictions. Not only are there dietary needs and restrictions, but others also have personal and religious beliefs and restrictions, making it hard for them to find foods they can eat. The dining hall tends to have many food options, but there doesn’t seem to be enough options for the few students that have dietary restrictions or personal and religious beliefs. The dining hall should provide many different options that would accommodate all students dietary needs. Who wants to eat salads and french fries for every meal? As there are many different options daily in the dining hall, there just never seems to be a fulfilling meal for students who are vegan. For the dining hall to make accommodations for vegans, the workers need to understand that vegans do not eat anything that comes from animals; this includes anything from eggs to meat. After surveying other students, it was evident that there are many vegan students who feel like there are not enough options for them daily. First year student, Anneliese Balfour suggests,” [The lunchroom staff should] plan full meals for vegans, leave animal products out of veggies, stick to basic food safety rules.” This will help make sure that vegans get get the right amount of nutrition per meal daily, and they would not have to worry about cross contamination with animal products.

Vegans that eat on campus will be happier and at ease with their decisions. It is true that vegetarians have way more options than vegans. Vegetarians diets are different; their diets only excludes meat. Vegetarians eat products from animals, just not the meat itself.” Again the survey showed that there could be improvements for vegetarians, even though there are several more options for them. First year, Amonica Kirkland suggests,

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
