Not well educated,

Reviewer: GF4all

Very frustrating as a first year student navigating through the gluten free options. Forced to live on campus (not a problem) but with that forced to purchase a meal plan. The dining halls were a disaster when it came to gluten free options. 95% of the time the server had no clue what gluten free was. Would offer me a pita bread thinking it was gluten free. Almost always never had gluten free pasta. Only had one option for baked goods. I spent more money eating out off campus and rarely used the meal plan. I mainly used the meal plan to feed my friends (:0 I don’t know how CSU made the top 100 on the list of gluten free options of Universities. Spoke to dining services about the situation to no avail. They have a menu that comes out weekly as to the gluten free options at each dining hall. Would chase down specific meals only to be disappointed that the option was not what was stated in the menu. They supplied a refrigerator in the dining hall with gluten free options. It looked like burritos from 7-11 and a packaged salad from the very poor salad bar. It’s no surprise most people gain the freshman 15, gluten free or not. Now, off campus there are ample options for gluten free. Almost every restaurant in the area offers gluten free options. Even pancakes and cookies (no, not the healthiest). Also, there is Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, etc where you could shop for gluten free options and store in your dorm. I purchased a refrigerator/freezer for that purpose. As nice as it was having the refrigerator, unfortunately there were times when I had no time to be shopping or making myself meals- hence, again with no option but quick unhealthy gluten free junk foods easy at hand.
