peta2 -- the student wing of PETA -- has released its annual list of the Most Vegan-Friendly Colleges.
According to a study by food-service provider Bon Appétit, the number of college students who identify themselves as vegetarian has risen by 50 percent since 2005, and the number of vegan students has more than doubled during the same period. This has resulted in a dramatic increase in the variety of vegan foods available -- many of which didn't even exist five years ago.
From the sweet and sour vegan meatballs at the University of California-Irvine to the vegan gyros at Georgetown to the dairy-free pumpkin cheesecake at Brown, students are gobbling up vegan meals like never before.
