CBU faculty and staff serve a late-night breakfast to support students during finals week
Riverside, Calif. (April 24, 2019) – Hundreds of students took a break from final exam preparations to indulge in a late-night breakfast served by California Baptist University faculty and staff on April 23.
The meal, served from 9-11 p.m., is a CBU tradition that gives faculty and staff an opportunity to encourage and serve students during finals week. Students dined on eggs, French toast, bacon, Tater Tots and doughnuts at the Alumni Dining Commons.
Mekari Cogdell, a kinesiology senior, said she appreciated that the faculty members and staff served the students.
“The late-night breakfast means that I am almost done with my time at CBU. It’s been a long couple of years and this is like a celebration of being almost done,” Cogdell said.
Dr. Doreen Ferko, professor of special education, said she enjoyed serving the students.
“It is exciting. It is a good time of year and serving is always fun and gives us an opportunity to show students that we really care about them,” Ferko said.
Ocean Lee, a software engineering senior, said it was a bittersweet moment to share a meal with friends whom he will miss seeing frequently at the Alumni Dining Commons.
“This place is known for good food and community,” Lee said.
