Vegan food is more popular than ever on college campuses. We surveyed thousands of colleges and universities across the country about how well they're keeping up with the demand for vegan options. And the results are in! See which schools made the grade, and let us know how satisfied you are with the vegan food on your campus using the thumbs-up or thumbs-down buttons.
Since the beginning of this school year, I haven’t found a proper vegan or vegetarian entree in the dining hall I eat at (Foster-Walker Complex) yet. The main courses have been meat dishes with vegetable sides, but unlike in previous years, there were no tofu alternatives, and when I asked the chefs what I could eat, they told me to resort to eating potatoes and rice or whatever vegetable happened to be a side for that meal.
Northwestern used to be very good to its vegetarian and vegan students, but I’m afraid it seems as though our campus has a different agenda now.

I think there’s a substantial difference between vegan “entrées” and vegan “options.” There are fruits and vegetables, and occasionally something beyond that (rice, maybe), but I haven’t seen anything this school year that qualifies as a vegan entrée. With some effort (and varying levels of success), I might be able to throw together something that resembles a vegan meal, but it’s nothing filling.
Hinman’s okay for breakfast. I ate lunch and dinner at Sargent in previous years but don’t see any reason to now. I don’t even bother with Foster-Walker Complex.
To give an analogy, it’s like the dining halls are saying, “We have something for every meat-eater,” and then only offering Bagel Bites and finger sandwiches.
