Hey I'm in college too, also in a small town, I'm currently transitioning to 811 and this is what i'm doing...
-frozen bananas, lots! --- check if your dorm has a community freezer! i just blend a smoothie in the morning and take it to class
-salads for lunch --- i just buy romaine (cheap), cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, and bell peppers
-some snack type fruits if your on the run, like oranges, plums, grapes
- and for dinner i eat at the dining halls --- they have salad bars and fruits
hope this helps!
p.s. its really convenient to use a filtering pitcher --- you can get one anywhere really --- in college, cheaper and less of a hassle than water bottles
One thing I would really recommend is to be very prepared! I still haven't managed to handle this, somehow. Fruit hunting can take up so much time, especially since most stores around campus don't have very many edible fruits...you know what I mean. ;P Fruit cups and conventional gag fruit just aren't my thing sometimes. There's tasty conventional fruit, possibly, but not at campus stores. :D
Find some time every week to go to the store and buy enough for that week! :) If you're on a meal plan, talk to your dining hall services about ordering bulk fruit such as apples or bananas or oranges ahead of time. Those are usually tasty, because they haven't been out sitting under direct heat lamps yet. ;P What stores do you have nearby? Check out flyers for cheaper fruits and buy what's on sale that week. You should be able to keep a crate of bananas for the week without needing to freeze or refrigerate them, but you can try this and see if it works for you.
I'm also going to college at the end of this month and I really need some help for food ideas. Like ideas for smoothies on the go or something else. Please email me or something.
Peta's Vegan College Cookbook is amazing I think I got it for less than 20 bucks at B&N. Its super quick, easy, microwave friendly, college meals :)
