is northwestern a vegetarian friendly campus?

<p>i know evanston has many good restaurants for vegetarians, but does anyone know if northwestern is veg friendly or not? is there a particular dining hall that is better for vegetarians than others? most college campuses aren't too veg friendly, so i'm hoping northwestern is. thanks for any advice you can give!</p>

<p>This ranking is probably not very scientific but PETA ranked us one of the top 10 most-vegetarian friendly colleges nationwide in its most recent ranking:</p>

<p>Most</a> Vegetarian-Friendly College Contest 2009 | </p>

<p>We're pretty veg-friendly in any case. Allison is most veg-friendly, I'd say.</p>

<p>thanks for the advice. anyone else have anything to input?</p>

<p>Too friendly some would say, but I've not had to eat in the dining hall for almost a year now so my input may be outdated.</p>

<p>You have nothing to worry about. NU is so vegetarian/vegan friendly that some "non-veg" students complain that there isn't enough "normal" food for people who eat meat!</p>

<p>Besides the abundance of fruits/vegetables/tofu for use in salads, there are usually a couple vegetarian and/or vegan main dishes at each meal. At Hinman (I can't speak for the other dining halls) there is also a vegan soup as well as a vegan dessert at most, if not all meals.</p>

<p>So don't worry, you're covered. :)</p>

<p>Yup I've eaten at the campus many times and there are lots of good options!</p>

<p>As others have said there certainly are a lot of vegetarian/vegan options in the dining halls, and they always seem to have good variety (i.e. not the same boring entree every day). </p>

<p>The only other thing I would say is to be careful if you are extremely strict vegan. The so-called 'vegan pancakes' at Plex (at least in the past) have been made with a pre-made mix that included eggs -- so do your due diligence.</p>
