University creates 'allergy-free' zones for afflicted students

Posted: Updated:
ISABELLA COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

The dining halls at Central Michigan University have a slightly different look this fall as students come back to campus.

New this year, the school has what's being called "allergy free zones."

Each campus dining hall has a specific area especially set aside for students with food allergies.

The university has also made iPads available in all of their residential restaurants. Students can use them to look up exactly what's inside each meal.

Students who have questions about their allergies can also meet one on one with dining hall staff members. "We go over all their allergy needs, what their sensitivities are, [and] how we can be most hopeful to them," said CMU student president Marie Reimers.

CMU says their campus retail locations also offer options for students with food allergies.
