Does the institution offer diverse, complete-protein vegan dining options during every meal?:

A brief description of the vegan dining program:

For 2010, PETA2 (the youth arm of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) voted CSU the 7th most vegan
friendly college in North America.

CSU offers a wide range of meatless meals. Diners can find delicious vegan breads and cookies from the in-house bakeshop, kung pao tempeh, Thai vegetable curries,
or vegan stir-fries with seitan, tempeh, or tofu from the Mongolian Grill. Middle Eastern options include the
falafel with lemon-tahini sauce or a quinoa, tabbouleh, and white-bean hummus wrap. Or, students can stick with
a new take on an old classic: vegan chicken nuggets.

CSU keeps the menu current by hosting regular "Veggin' Out" meetings with students to solicit feedback and
network with the many eco- and animal-friendly students on campus. In addition, the Housing & Dining Services dietician offers vegetarian/vegan nutrition and cooking classes for on-campus students.
