Turns out a "Bruin" isn't necessarily a carnivorous beast: PETA has named UCLA "the most Vegan-Friendly College in the U.S." among larger schools, besting 31 others in the process, which was a bracketing system compared to college basketball's "March Madness." PETA2 Director Dan Shannon singles out UCLA as a role model for nutrition education, adding: "More and more young people are learning that the best thing that they can do for animals, the planet, and themselves is to go vegan." Though animal rights are a huge issue at UCLA, their dining halls offer several vegan options for students. (h/t Squid Ink)
