Veg-Friendly Colleges

PETA2 announces its list of the top veg-friendly colleges in the US.

This week, PETA2, the youth branch of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, released its annual list of veg-friendly colleges. Top honors for the 2009 Most Vegetarian Friendly Colleges went to Wesleyan University and Oberlin College, who placed first and second, respectively. At Wesleyan students dine on veggie chicken red curry, three-mushroom vegan ragu pasta, and barbecue seitan, while students at Oberlin indulge in tempeh and wild mushroom fricassee, vegetable stew, seitan pepper steak, and barbecue tofu pizza. Eligibility was contingent on recipes and photos of vegetarian and vegan meal options in college cafeterias. A formal list of 48 competitors was compiled and students were encouraged to vote for their university to earn a spot in the top 10. A similar list was also compiled for Canadian colleges, with McMaster University coming in first place.
