Students enjoy traditional late-night break from finals
Riverside, Calif. (April 27, 2018) – Hundreds of students took a break from preparing for final exams on the evening of April 26 to enjoy a late-night breakfast served by California Baptist University faculty and staff.
The breakfast, 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.
“It was such a good pause in the night,” said Christian Salley, an undeclared freshman. “I had been studying for hours, so it was a much needed time with friends.”
Dr. Wayne Fletcher, associate provost, said volunteering at the breakfast was important to him.
“They see us taking time out of our schedules to come and serve them. That’s what we want to communicate, students are the heart of what we do at CBU,” Fletcher said.
Austin Boaman, resident director of Smith Hall, enjoyed seeing students in a more relaxed environment.
“I also love seeing the seniors right before they graduate. It’s a great way to celebrate their achievements,” said Boaman, who greeted students and served beverages at the event.
For Hannah Wolfe, a public relations senior, this was her last time to take part in the tradition.
“It was a little bittersweet, but just another reminder how amazing CBU is and how big of a blessing the faculty have been,” Wolfe said.
