MWSU is my alma mater, but if I had to count on living on campus and taking a meal plan, I would go hungry. I recently took high school students on a tour of this campus which included eating at the dining hall. I anticipated not having many/any GF choices and packed a lunch; however, I inquired about what I might be able to eat just in case. I was informed by management that they were not aware what was gluten free and what wasn't, so they couldn't tell me either way. The majority of the food was pasta, stir fry, and cheeseburgers - definitely not GF. Their food service manager wouldn't even look up their salad dressing or give me a brand to investigate myself. I decided to break out my packed lunch but wasn't allowed to go into the dining hall to even supervise my high school students. I had to stay outside and could watch them through the glass. Honestly, I wouldn't have even trusted their drinks but they wouldn't let me in. This even bothered the students I brought. High school juniors and seniors didn't think it was right that they singled me out.

This was very disappointing from my alma mater! I loved the education I received and take great value in where it has taken me today, but I was very disappointed with food services. I would highly recommend living off campus (as I did in college) and skipping the meal plan. In general, St. Joseph is littered with fast food that isn't gluten-friendly. If I eat out at all, it's at Chipotle; otherwise, we cook at home and entertain a lot. Keep that in mind if MWSU is on your radar.
