Gluten Intolerance

Student's Summary Assessment:

College Dining:


Surrounding Area:


Rationale for Grades Given

As a college commuting student, I have found that the options available for me are very limited. Our snack shop is very limited in gluten-free options- sometimes none are available- and I am unable to visit the dining hall as I don't have a meal plan. I usually have to go off campus to get something gluten-free friendly.

Lots of options with an abundance of restaurants in downtown Naperville.

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

Gluten sensitive. I can have a small amount and just be bloated but anything more is not a good day. I choose to be completely gluten-free to avoid any issues. It has been about a year since I have started this diet.
