College Dining:

passing grade: they do feed us, although the food tends to get dried out in the warmers, and at breakfast, I have found the trays bare or forgotten at times.

Details About this Student's Food Restrictions

How many years ago were you diagnosed with food allergies or celiac disease?


If you indicated celiac or gluten intolerance, how sensitive are you to gluten?

["Very: React to small amounts"]

Add details to help us better understand your food restrictions (e.g. sensitivity level, potential reaction, need for EPI pen)

Completed original celiac survey which did not ask about other food allergies

Details About this Student's College Dining Experience

Does your college handle food restrictions as you expected when you decided to attend?

Somewhat what I expected

Have you had a reation from eating in your dining hall?


If Yes, describe each incident and how your school responded

not much happened. I ate from the wrong line and was a little gassy. I didn't say anything

Did you register your food restriction with the disabilities office? If yes, describe

no. I did get a doctor's note to eat from the gluten free section in the kitchen

Are there resources to help with nutritious, safe dining (e.g. dietician)? If yes, describe

not that I know of. we get options in the kitchen.

If you were in charge of dining, what would you change? Would your school be open to suggestions?

Add a cook your own station in the kitchen, where it won't be covered with breadcrumbs or sauces.

Describe your biggest challenge managing your food restrictions at college and how you deal with it

I get very little variety in meals because we only get one small section. I eat out every now and then, but it gets expensive

Advice for Incoming Students:


Did your food restrictions impact your housing decisions?  Any dorm recommendations

the Townhouses have their own kitchen and you aren't required to have a meal plan if you live there. you can make your own food.

Dining Halls:

Any advice for managing dining halls?  Favorite dining halls? Any to avoid?

Stinger's (The Hive) has no options. get your doctor's note in so you can eat from the safe section in the back.

Meal Plans:

Describe your meal plans over the year(s). What's mandatory? Any suggestions? 

block 180 plan, block 170 plan. both are two meals per day in either the dining hall or campus fast food place.


Any advice for eating in the dorms? Favorite snacks? Places that deliver? 

Colonial Pizza delivers GF crust. I'm not sure how the cross contamination is for those more sensitive. I love the gluten free lemon wafer cookies you can buy from walmart.

Getting Started:

What should students do before school starts or when they first arrive?

Get a job so you can afford to eat out. You will quickly find yourself wanting some variety. Also, the student workers serving you likely don't prep the food. look for a manager for questions.


Advice on managing parties or dinners out with friends?

It's a dry campus and a dry town. Just don't.


Any other advice or comments?

There are very few options in the tiny town. If you go to Xenia, Wendy's usually has decent options.
