Let’s be real: How many hours have you spent dreaming that your campus would open up an all-vegetarian or -vegan market? Well, for students at Oakwood University in Huntsville, Alabama, that dream is a reality—and that’s why peta2 is awarding the school with a Compassionate Campus Award!
Alabama may not be the first place that comes to mind when you think about vegan eats—but Oakwood is proving that being vegan is easy anywhere. The market will be offering up faux-chicken sandwiches, veggie burgers, veggie hot dogs, and pizzas with vegan cheese!
Oakwood University is smart: There’s been a 50 percent increase in the number of college vegetarians nationwide since 2005, and the number of college vegans has doubled in the same period! Undoubtedly, the market will be packed with students looking for compassionate, healthy, and delish eats!
