SHIPPENSBURG- Dining options can be tough for vegans when they are away from home. Shippensburg has improved the vegan and vegetarian options over the past four years and the feedback the University has gotten back is all positive. Nick Iula, director of dining services, is vegan himself and is proud of all the hard work Ship has put into their vegan food and serving at least one vegan entree at every meal. Ship got a grade A from the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, commonly known as PETA, in its ranking of vegan offerings at colleges. Shippensburg is among 1,100 other colleges in the United States to earn an A grade.
