Rice ranks high for health and super tastiness

HealthyRice University ranked No. 2 on a recent list of the top seven healthiest college campuses, according to Neon Tommy, the 24/7, multimedia online news publication sponsored by the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism at the University of Southern California.

The article highlighted Rice’s sustainable dining practices, including using locally grown ingredients, trayless dining, fair-trade coffee and variety of vegan and vegetarian options at every meal.

“It is also well-known that not only is the food at Rice from a sustainable source, it is also super tasty,” the article said.

The article also mentioned Rice Wellness Center, which is “open to all who want to better their health and wellness.”

The list was compiled by a student reporter who used information she gathered from each school’s dining website and elsewhere online, including the Huffington Post and College Prowler. Topping the list of colleges was Washington University in St. Louis. Others on the list were Bowdoin College, Stanford University, Oberlin College, University of California at Berkeley and Cornell University. Read the article at http://bit.ly/Lz3zcQ.
