Introducing GREAT U and Gluten-Free College Chat Tonight
Last fall, I did a series of blog posts about being gluten-free in college. For me, college was a crazy time. I was away from home for the first time and eating in a large cafeteria. My gluten-free safety net (a.k.a. MOM) was not around to protect me. It seems like colleges today are being much more accommodating to their gluten-free students. There is also a lot more awareness and advocacy amongst the students themselves which helps the college to learn from their very own students.

The National Foundation for Celiac Awareness launched a new program last month for college students. It is an interactive resource that helps college students navigate their new world away from home. You can learn more about GREAT U: A Gluten-Free Guide to College Living by clicking here.

Tonight there will be a Twitter chat all about being gluten-free in college. Here are the details from my online college friend Janelle, author of Gluten-Free for a Healthy Me! Follow Janelle during the chat at @gfreejanelle
