Colleges offer gluten segregated safe zones
Idiots on Parade
A lack of Gluten may account for a burst
of stupidity in colleges.
(Campus Reform News) - Forget differing opinions and mean people, safe spaces on college campuses are protecting students from a new enemy: gluten.
Two liberal arts colleges in Pennsylvania currently provide segregated areas where gluten-free students can take refuge from the protein.
Bryn Mawr and Haverford College—both located in the suburbs of Philadelphia—allow students diagnosed with Celiac Disease and those who’ve adopted the gluten-free lifestyle to dine in peace in designated rooms.
The safe zones were first introduced at Bryn Mawr in 2013 by Bernie Chung-Templeton, the school’s executive director of dining services. The following year, Chung-Templeton instituted the program at Haverford.
Signs posted outside the gluten-free rooms warn students not to bring food from the school's cafeteria or other locations inside in addition to a number of other guidelines.
According to the English House Gazette, baked gluten-free goods such as “breads, pastries and tortillas” are available to students inside the safe spaces.
