‘Late Night Breakfast’ helps relieve stress of finals week
An NDSU finals week tradition continued as the annual “Late Night Breakfast” was held Dec. 12, from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. Faculty and staff helped serve the meal to all NDSU residence hall students at the Residence Dining Center.
“This is an effort to lighten the mood for the many on-campus students who are experiencing their first finals week. Since finals week can be incredibly stressful for students, this is a way to reach out to new students and ease their transition,” said Deanne Sperling, assistant to the vice president for student affairs and university conference coordinator, noting NDSU finals week ran Dec. 12-16.
Becky Bahe, assistant director for leadership and community development in Residence Life, organized this year’s effort. She said the event attracted 1,200 to 1,500 students who dine on French toast, cinnamon rolls, bacon and orange slices.
“This is an opportunity for us to give students a break from their studies, and they get a chance to interact with fellow students, faculty and staff,” Bahe explained. “We typically have students lined up at the door, waiting for us to open.”
