Do NOT let others discourage you. It's great that you're even thinking about these issues. You are doing more for animals, the environment, and yourself than most people.

If you have to, take the transition slowly, which is what many vegans do. Maybe it wouldn't be *too* hard to be lacto-ovo, even with cafeteria food. Then, like you said, you can go vegan once you've graduated and have a place of your own. Contrary to what your cousin said, being vegan is not "way too hard" to do. Frustrating at times, but possible, and, as you learn, it becomes much easier over time.

Good luck!! :)
