After a hugely successful inaugural event last fall, Clarion University faculty and staff will reprise the late-night breakfast to encourage student success during finals week. From 10:30 p.m. May 12 to 12:30 a.m. May 13, Clarion University President Dr. Karen Whitney will lead other university faculty and staff in serving breakfast to students.
Last semester’s pre-finals breakfast hosted more than 1,000 students, served by 45 university employees. The menu consisted of scrambled eggs, a veggie egg scramble with cheese, hash browns, sausage patties, grilled ham, French toast sticks with maple syrup, breakfast pastries, donuts and assorted bagels with cream cheese. The meal was free to university students.
"With student success as our top priority, the late-night breakfast was an Eagletastic way to celebrate the end of the fall semester," Whitney said. Now she is preparing to celebrate again, as the spring semester winds down.
In conjunction with the late-night breakfast, other members of the university community are planning events to promote high performance on student finals. The Office of Counseling Services will hold a relaxation session from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. May 8 in Egbert 148. During this time, participants will learn relaxation techniques to help manage the stress of finals week.
The Student Recreation Center, as well, has devised a special finals-week schedule, encouraging students to shake off some stress through various forms of exercise. That schedule can be found by the front desk of the Rec Center.
Be sure to keep an eye out for more finals week activities, and take some time to relax between study sessions.
