Matthew's Tips:

✔️️ Use the campus dining website to find list of places that might have food suited for you.

✔️️ Email and use dining services employees to help guide you to the correct dining locations or food types.

✔️️ Be aware of all the food you and people around you are eating, no one else will be aware of your allergies.

✔️️ Be proactive before choosing a meal plan to see what plan best works for you. 

How has Ohio State helped accommodate your food allergies?

They make accommodations in the dining halls for students with allergies and also have a good website and dinning employees to aid students with eating restrictions.
