Recently, Seattle Pacific University was ranked as one of the top 10 most vegan-friendly colleges by INSIDER. In addition, PETA2, a subset of PETA which focuses on youth animal rights, has given SPU an A+ rating on their Vegan Report Card Grade, with a student satisfaction rate of 86%. So, what makes SPU so appealing to those students seeking a vegan or vegetarian diet?  

       For starters, Seattle Pacific University seeks to create a comfortable environment for all students, regardless of special dietary needs and restrictions. The variety of vegan options here on campus extend from the dining hall to retail dining locations. In Gwinn Commons, students can find that they can request vegan pizza, and check out the plant-based friendly station, which includes healthy vegan options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Students can also find an extensive salad bar with local seasonal ingredients, and vegan and gluten-free pastries baked fresh from the Flying Apron, a local bakery in Fremont. Looking for something to-go outside of the dining hall? The C-Store has a vegan snacking rack available, and students can also find dairy-free options at Common Grounds and Academic Perks as an add on to their quick pick-me-up.  

      Seattle Pacific University is an institution here to serve students of various lifestyles in their dining experience. Regardless of your dietary need or restriction, SPU has convenient, healthy and delicious options available to you.
