That shouldn't be a problem if you live in an Eastern Michigan University dormitory. The school's dining halls have begun offering a range of food for students with food sensitivity or allergies, the Eastern Echo reported.

The gluten-free options are clearly labeled with an orange sign and letter 'G,' making them easy to spot, the article states.

“Showing if something contains gluten or not is a good thing,” freshman Angelica Arriola, a nursing major, told the Echo. “I think they do a good job.”

The University of Michigan also provides gluten free options upon request, according to its website.
