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

A brief description of the vegan dining program:

All of Virginia Tech’s major dining facilities offer complete-protein vegan meals, whether in one dish or achievable by combing different sides. The best location to eat vegan meals is the exclusively vegetarian venue “Olives” in D2 dining center. This location offers a wide variety of vegan and vegetarian options for lunch and dinner seven days a week. In close second is the a la carte dining center West End Market, with a robust salad venue called “Leaf and Ladle” that also offers proteins in the form of soups, as well as vegetarian/vegan compatible options at most other venues in that dining center. Owens Food Court, another popular dining center on campus, features a buffet-style salad bar with a myriad of choices highly compatible with a vegetarian or vegan diet.
