Student's Summary Assessment:
Rationale for Grades Given
There were two dedicated allergy chefs in the dining hall who were amazing and very knowledgeable. However, they were not always around, and the rest of the dining hall staff were very hit-or-miss. Within only two months at school, I caught wheat pasta, breaded chicken, and a wheat tortilla being mislabeled as gluten-free (honestly, I am concerned there were more instances of mislabeling that I didn't catch!). I frequently experienced symptoms of gluten exposure. I have a friend with celiac who told me that she was also offered soy sauce (wheat containing) by one of the dining hall staff too,
There are very limited options for food in Gambier. The Village Market and the Bookstore have some gluten-free options but are very small stores. There are decent options in the nearby town of Mount Vernon but it takes about an hour round trip to get there and back on the shuttle that the college provides.
