We boast a 91% student satisfaction rate thanks to programs and options like offering at least one vegan entrée at every meal, labeling our vegan entrées and desserts and offering an all-vegan station and nondairy milk. Additionally, we include vegan members on our student advisory board. Kent State has been named one of the top 10 most vegan-friendly campuses by PETA and consistently scores an A on PETA’s vegan friendliness report card.
