Gluten-Free Dining at College: Syracuse University and University of Maryland

This recent article explains the struggle with gluten-free and casein-free dining at the University of Maryland at College Park. The student featured in the article is also a vegetarian, which further reduces her food options.

On a more positive note, this video from Citrus TV at Syracuse University shows many gluten-free options and mentions that a celiac support group will be forming on campus.

this is a wonderful post. I just posted the video on my blog with my own impressions of going to college as a Celiac. I linked back to your blog on it. Hope you like my post: http://bit.ly/8RqAH.

Unfortunately, this is not happening so far this semester at SU. Very limited variety, and few employees available to help.
