It turns out that eating vegan is more popular than ever on college
campuses. According to a study by food-service provider Bon Appétit,
the number of college students who identify themselves as vegetarian

Alliance hosted the second meeting of iV: the Ivy League Vegan
Conference. The annual iV conference is dedicated to exploring the
academic basis for plant-based diets and building a cohesive community
of activists and advocates.
