Lewiston, Maine – A good diet often means good grades, and apparently, no one knows that better than Bates College in Lewiston. That’s because after receiving an A on its Vegan Report Card from peta2, PETA’s youth division, Bates beat out some fierce competition—including the University of North Carolina–Asheville, Oklahoma City University, and Framingham State University—to be voted the Favorite Vegan-Friendly Small School in the U.S. It won by fewer than 50 votes, but that was enough to claim the title of undisputed champ.
“With delicious dishes such as tempeh cakes with roasted red-pepper sauce and gluten-free tofu with Maine blueberry sauce, Bates College earned every forkful of its bragging rights,” says peta2 Director Marta Holmberg. “Every year, peta2 meets more and more students across the country who are protecting animals, the planet, and their own health by joining the vegan revolution.”
Sixteen large schools and 16 small schools were in this year’s competition. The 2014 winner in the large-school category is the University of Florida in Gainesville.
Bates will receive several award certificates to display in various places on campus.
