Alrighty. I'll do my research. (: Thanks for the advice!

no you do NOT have to wait to call for information. just go to their websites. often you can call the main switchboard and ask them to connect you to the housing/food service offices if you cannot find a direct link. but you should be able to get those numbers w/ a search of the university page too.

honestly, if they are rude to you prior to going, do you really think they will be any nicer once you are there?

it IS summer break though so you SHOULD take that into consideration. many offices will have limited hours or summer camps running right now so you may need to leave messages. i would give it 2-3 days before calling back.

as for eliminating caffeine - i have to continually work on eliminating it (i <3 my tea) more because of acid reflux than anything else. My understanding is that white chocolate does not contain any caffeine, and that milk and dark only contains minuscule amounts (vs. tea or coffee). you may actually be responding the to the sugar content, the cocoa butter & the milk solids found in white chocolate. (pretty much white chocolate is just made of those 3 ingredients.)



Oh thank you so much! That makes tons of sense. (: I may just start the question process and then follow up once school starts.

I'm with you on the love of tea. That really helps; a friend is actually allergic to caffeine.
I'll try cutting out (well, cutting back...) on sugar rather than all caffeine sources and see if that makes a difference.

Well this is late... But hi. I'm Cassidy; my mom and I are the co-chairmen (chairwomen?) of the local support group. If you get this... We're going to P.F. Chang's on July 14th for the summer Dinner Out. (:

Ooh. So I ask about that before saying yes or no to the meal plan. Thanks (:

One thing to keep in mind ....

The micro-fridges are normally in the suite-style dorms, where the meal plan is required. I was told that even with documented celiac, they couldn't make an exception. They put me in an apartment-style dorm where there is a full kitchen and i can just make my own food.



So I don't get the meal plan, right? (I'm really, really new at the college thing...)
