According to Inside Higher Ed, the University of North Texas will become the nation’s first mainstream institution of higher learning to open a cafeteria that is 100 percent vegan. Take that UCLA, PETA’s “Most Vegan-Friendly College” in 2010.
The university, located in Denton, decided to open the strictly vegan eatery because of demand rather than attempting to make a pro-animal rights statement but nonetheless PETA is giving North Texas a "compassionate campus” award.
Fantastic news but the most important question begs to be answered, what about the food?
Well if you have images of kale shakes, salads and tofu-a-plenty as the only options available at the new plant-based fare filled cafeteria you would be mistaken.
University officials claim that menu selections like “pizza, vegetable sushi, a panini bar and a variety of Middle Eastern sauces” will keep hungry college students coming back for more.
TDIV applauds the University of North Texas and we hope the “Mean Green” have started a trend that will sweep the nation.
