Student's Summary Assessment:
Rationale for Grades Given
There is a completely gluten-free/top allergen-free dining hall ('Thrive' at Owen Hall). This dining hall is completely free of gluten, dairy, nuts, and some of the other top allergens. This is great because it lets people with many different types of allergies have a safe place to eat. It's open Monday - Friday for lunch and dinner. The cost of the meal is the same as all of the other dining halls on campus, even though it's gluten-free. Thrive is closed on the weekend, but a few of the other dining halls have gluten-free options. For instance, Brody dining hall (open on the weekends) has gluten-free bread to make sandwiches, along with a separate toaster and microwave just for GF students. It also has gluten-free cookies and bagels.
Lots of gluten-free options at restaurants & many gluten-free products at local grocery stores.
