Representatives from an animal rights group visited Youngstown State University on Friday.

PETA set up a barn-like tent to encourage students to become a vegetarian or vegan.

Students could also watch a video on the meat industry.

They also were invited to try samples of vegan foods, and take recipes and other educational information.

“When we saw the barn we knew it was for PETA, we knew we had to come and support it because the way (the meat industry) treat animals is absolutely horrible,” said YSU junior biology major Jamielynn Doyle. “We want to make sure that we get people into the cause and get them educated on why beganism is better for the environment and for your health.”
