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

I didn’t report it because they don’t claim to be gluten free so they would just say they’re not liable

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

Yes but not for celiac

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

I’m not sure, I’m president of Stufents For Disability Justice and there are a few celiac in the group and we talk but pretty much all agree nothing is safe on campus really

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

More packaged food avaiable that is allergy friendly

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

Finding food during long days when I don’t pack enough

Advice for Incoming Students:


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


Dining Halls:

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

Make your own goodness in your dorm, the new allergy friendly station at C Street is suspicious because it still made without so I don’t know the level of contamination but it’s at least somewhat an option

Meal Plans:

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

Required around $1500 per quarter for the first two years then I got a commuter meal plan of $400 and lasted the wholeness year from it the next two


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

Go to the grocery store, the night hawk will take you to two!

Getting Started:

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

Expect to make your own food, try to get in a dorm with a kitchen on your floor


Advice on managing parties or dinners out with friends?

They don’t really exist here lol


Any other advice or comments?
