Feeding 6,000 students with different tastes and needs is no piece of cake. But Baylor's four campus dining halls aim to please.
"Memorial's really good, they have a good salad bar and a lot of good food," says sophomore Catherine Cribb.
"They usually have plenty of options and they're probably as fresh as a dining hall can get," agrees freshman Lydia Schaffer.
Now they're taking on a growing diet request: gluten free. That means avoiding foods containing wheat flour.
"We offer anything from gluten free bread and pizza crusts to different pastas. Gluten free soy sauce for our stir fry station," said Lori Johnson with the Baylor Catering Dept.
Best Colleges Online recently named Baylor the most gluten free-friendly campus in the nation.
People intolerant to gluten usually stay away from breads, cakes, cookies and even many sauces.
"They hurt a lot after they eat those products in their digestive tract, their small intestines have a lot of pain, a lot of discomfort," explains nutrition sciences professor Dr. Janelle Walter.
But with gluten free options on the table students and staff can avoid the problem. Something many students say is an easy change to swallow.
"I'm actually a transfer and last year the school that we went to it was like you got one option and if you didn't like it than you were outta luck," said Catherine.
"If they're paying for a meal plan they might as well offer things they can eat," said Lydia.
The Memorial dining hall is known as the best for gluten free options on campus. They even have a grab-n-go refrigerator with completely gluten free options that students can access whenever they want.
