Bowling Green State University opens vegan concept

Shoots will be open for lunch and dinner, Monday through Friday, at The Oaks dining hall.

BOWLING GREEN, Ohio — With the summer comes many changes and that includes dining services.

One significant change is the introduction of new vegan menu options coming to The Oaks.

The vegan concept “Shoots” will provide vegan fare for both lunch and dinner Monday through Friday.

Junior Cassandra Mitchell knows people who have struggled with vegan options on campus in the past and said the introduction of vegan food to The Oaks is positive.

“It’s good that we’re trying different things and trying to be more accomodating,” she said. “Two of my friends challenged each other [to be vegan] ... they struggled very hard when they went to the Oaks.”

Senior Mariah Burks thinks the new vegan options are a great idea and the new the “Shoots” concept can benefit even those who aren’t vegan.

“I love having the choice of trying other food,” she said. “That way you don’t feel so stuck.”

Also being introduced this semester is the “Late Nights at the Sundial” concept, changing the Kreischer Sundial’s hours of operation to 5 p.m. to midnight every day.
