I am a sophomore at an HBCU in Pennsylvania. I chose to attend the school because since i'm from Philly, it' s not too far from home... but neither is it too close. I have been a vegetarian all my life and my diet was also one of the first concerns that arose when it came time to choose schools. I consulted with administrators and they ensured me that they had accomodations for vegetarians and vegans. For some reason, i was satisfied. However, after after spending two weeks at the school (for the first week no one really had any complaints), i found that i had been hoodwinked. The accomodations turned out to be an almost-always-wilted salad bar, spaghetti, rice and a mixture anything left over that didn't consist of meat thrown together covered with a coating of spaghetti sauce and cheese. Now, i kno that food in college is usually distasteful, but i shouldn't have to stand there for ten minutes trying to figure out what the supposed meal consist of! I tried shopping for myself, but could not get consistant rides to and from the market and i forgot to mention that i'm not rich. The use of hotplates or microwaves are illeagel, bringing a $75 minimum fine if discovered by Resident Advisors. I even gathered a group of vegetarian students to talk to food services. We offered sugesstions and continued to voice concern. Nothing happened as a result. After completeing almost 3 semesters I am honesly tired of eating rice or spaghetti and salad day after day. Please, if you have any sugesstions, let me know ASAP, anything would be appreciated. Peace.
