      [University of Virginia The Cavalier Daily]

      University students teamed up last week with peta2, a young adult
      division of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, to draft a
      petition seeking the expansion of vegetarian and vegan options
      available through University Dining.

      The students exceeded their goal of obtaining 400 signatures the first
      day, receiving a total of 497 signatures. Fourth-year College student
      Ashley Chappo, an opinion columnist for The Cavalier Daily, helped
      mobilize support for the petition through her column “A fur-vent
      debate,” which encouraged students to become more educated about
      animal rights. Shortly after Chappo’s column was published March 2,
      Peta2 contacted her about founding a student organization for animal
      rights at the University. Peta2, headquartered in Norfolk, Va., sent
      its campus outreach team to Charlottesville to help students write the
      petition.
