Does Yale-NUS College care about students’ dietary preferences in dining halls?
It does, one hundred percent! I am proud to say that our school and many students here continue to actively support vegetarians by offering more vegetarian meals. Both the university and the student body are trying to achieve harmony among students with a huge variety of dietary preferences. At the same time, we do not forget about important environmental issues and are trying to reduce the meat consumption at the university.
However, I would say that meals are somewhat repetitive, so, one might quickly get used to them. Moreover, I am a meat person. So while I realise the reasoning behind the proposal to reduce meat consumption, I would prefer a bigger range of meals with meat. There are also four halal options for every meal (breakfast, lunch, and dinner).
