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

I’ve only had one major one to eggs and I decided not to let dining services know although I should have.

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


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

Yes, there is a very limited selection of “allergy friendly” options, but not much variety. They have a menu posted online that I find helpful when trying to eat at the dining hall.

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

I would make the allergy free section larger with more options, I would make sure to include labels when and where I could as to what ingredients are in what, I would make sure that if there is an option that is not allergy friendly that I could modify to be similar.

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

My biggest challenge is the options available and having to trust that there was no cross contamination.
