Students support animal welfare

In honor of World Animal Day, the Campus Activities Board held a vegan breakfast event Monday, and asked students who attended to take a pledge to improve animal welfare by signing a big white board. 

Around 60 students attended the event in Sneaky Park. 

It featured a food truck with free vegan burritos and reusable tote bags.

Danyelle Jacob, junior communications major and CAB philanthropy chair, organized the event.

“I decided to go with a plant-based option for food (and to) eliminate plastic use that harms animals,” Jacob said.

Many students pledged, and the white board was filled with their names by the end of the event.

“I love the vegan breakfast burritos because it’s something I’ve never had before,” Madeline Ruiz, junior political science major, said. “It’s cool that we get the opportunity to try something that you can’t get every day.” 

World Animal Day, Oct. 4, was created in the 1920s by German writer Heinrich Zimmermann, who was publisher of the magazine Mensch und Hund, which means Man and Dog in German.

The first World Animal Day was March 24, 1925. In 1925, it was moved to Oct. 4.
