CBU students take advantage of a late-night breakfast during finals week
Riverside, Calif. (Dec. 6, 2019) – The aroma of French toast filled the Alumni Dining Commons as students lined up to receive their late-night breakfast served by California Baptist University staff and faculty members on Dec. 5.
The Alumni Dining Commons started to serve the meal at 8 p.m. for seniors and 9 p.m. for the remainder of the students. The commons also stayed open until 4 a.m. for students who wanted a place to study. The Late Night Breakfast event is a CBU tradition that allows staff and faculty members to serve, show support and encourage students during finals week.
Hundreds of students showed up for the event and dined on French toast, eggs, bacon, tater tots, cereal and doughnuts.
Ruby Barragan, a sociology senior, enjoyed the opportunity to get her mind off finals and eat a hearty meal with friends.
“I have been working all day so I knew I needed a break. I think it is a great way to end the year, making great memories with friends,” Barragan said.
Angela Stevenson, a sociology senior, said she was grateful for the event.
“I came out to see what it would be like and it is heartwarming to be served by the staff,” Stevenson said.
Anthony Lammons, dean of students, said he looks forward to serving at Late Night Breakfast every semester.
“It is a wonderful opportunity to be able to serve students. I have enjoyed participating for years and years. It is exciting to see those who are graduating and even meet students for the first time,” Lammons said.
