@Nathan I was thinking about it but decided against it.  I still love music and play guitar all the time.  What instrument do you play?

Hey hey!  This is great that there is a group for college students going raw.  The dining halls SUCK SO BAD.  It completely does not accommodate to raw vegans that well.  The salad bar is fine, but as for fruit, there are usually three types: bananas, apples, and oranges (pears occasionally).  Not only is that a limited selection, but most of the fruit is NEVER ripe.  When I pick the brown and speckled bananas, my friends think I like to eat rotten bananas.  Anyways, I buy my own :)  It can be socially isolating, but it's a whole lot better than being an unhealthy mess!

Agnes,

I had a friend who wrote to her institution and asked to not have to pay for the meal plan because of 'dietary needs' and they did not require her to pay for it. Maybe next time, you can write a letter to whomever about your dietary needs (maybe you can get an MD to support your cause and give you an excuse) and see if you can get out of paying for that. It is cheaper to pay for your own food anyway. :)

Hey everyone! I am so excited to see that I am not the only one in this age group trying to be a LFRV ! It can be difficult in this day and age especially with social gatherings, if you know what i mean ! In my case, there's not much fruit at the dining hall at my college. It stinks that I have to pay for all the other "junk" food when I don't eat it and they barely provide what I do eat. Anyways, it's so great that I finally found a community of like minded people ! I'm excited and this is very encouraging for me to keep up the lifestyle seeing that I'm not alone ! =)

Hey everyone, just wanted to introduce myself :) My name is Aly and I go to George Washington Univ. in Washington, DC. Nice to know there are other students living raw while going to school, definitely encouraging! :)

Yes, I bow down to buffet cafeterias... may as well put my chair next to the serving tables, lol!

Comment by MerryEllen Ackema on April 2, 2012 at 7:57am

gahhhh! im so excited i found this page. :)

marlene, i normally just bring food with me everywhere and much all the time whether it be 10 oranges or a stalk or celery. my friends think its funny and call me a rabbit, and its fun to joke and play, but as they notice my slim figure, and endless energy, they begin to make changes in their own lives.

Comment by Hannah Amanda on April 1, 2012 at 10:40am

Oh my cafeteria was a buffet.  I usually took a couple apples for a snack each time I went though. I had a meal plan so I was able to eat there whenever I wanted.

Also right now at my new school I do not have a locker, but if you are commuting you could always leave some food in your car and grab it for lunch.
