Northwestern kicks NYU’s ass.
NYU has canceled its monthly vegan night at Hayden Dining Hall. They’ll still offer some monthly vegan options alongside their regular dining hall food; apparently they missed the part where those of us disgusted by animal cruelty tend to lose our appetites in the presence of animal corpses. Not to mention that the only reason we flocked to eat their crappy dining hall food was the novelty of being able to eat everything.
NYU’s got some kind of stupid excuse about “accomodating everyone,” as if it’s a burden for the poor omnivores to be served food that is better for their health, animals, and the environment for one night a month in one of many dining halls. According to NYU animal rights club SEAL, you can tell NYU how dumb this is, and ask them to bring back vegan night, by calling 212-995-3030 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org .
Not surprisingly, NYU didn’t even make the list in peta2′s poll of the most vegetarian-friendly colleges. #1 was Northwestern; see the whole list here.
