GlutenFreeTravelSite Gives College Students a Place to Review the Availability of Gluten-Free Food on Campuses
Our sister website, GlutenFreeTravelSite, just announced the addition of a feature on its site that enables gluten-free college students to review colleges and universities for their degree of "gluten-free friendliness." Reviewers simply follow the steps for Submitting a Review as they would for a restaurant, store, hotel, or resort, but they choose "college" when prompted for the type of establishment they're reviewing.
By adding colleges as a choice of venues to be reviewed, GlutenFreeTravelsite gives college students a way to share their feedback -- both positive and negative -- with current and prospective students who follow gluten-free diets.
If you'd like to stay in the loop about new gluten-free college reviews as we receive them, please "Like" us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, or sign up for our free monthly e-letter (or do all three!). We plan on sharing news of new reviews though those channels. Of course, you can always Search Reviews of colleges by going to our Search/Mapping page and entering the town or zip code of the college in the search box. If that college has been reviewed, it will come up in the search results.
But please be patient...since we just launched this feature of our site, reviews may be limited for a while. But you can help us speed things up...
If you know any gluten-free college students, by all means, please encourage them to submit feedback about the college they attend. It is such a HUGE help to other students, especially those embarking on their college selection process. These students have a whole other dimension to think about when it comes to campus life.
Some helpful information to include in a review would be...Does the dining hall stock plenty of gluten-free options for its students? How good are they about food handling and avoiding cross-contamination? Do they have an area for "self-serve" food preparation? Are there other places on campus to get gluten-free meals, and if so, what would you recommend? What is the process prospective students should go through to best articulate their needs before starting school?
You can read a review of Georgetown University from a the perspective of a recent gluten-free graduate here. And don't forget...you can always search gluten-free reviews of restaurants located near your campus or check out the Gluten Free Restaurant Menus list of chain restaurants offering gluten-free menus on GlutenFreeTravelSite.
