Hundreds of California Baptist University students enjoy a late-night breakfast served by university faculty and staff at the Alumni Dining Commons on Dec. 11.
Riverside, Calif. (Dec. 12, 2017) – Students took a short break from finals preparation to enjoy a traditional late-night breakfast served by California Baptist University faculty and staff on Dec. 11.
The breakfast, served from 9-11 p.m., gives faculty and staff an opportunity to encourage and serve students during finals week. Students were offered a hot spread of eggs, French toast, bacon, Tater Tots and Krispy Kreme doughnuts at the Alumni Dining Commons.
Madelyn Bradley, an exercise science freshman, came out for the food and community.
“The food gives me energy, and energy equals brain power,” Bradley said.
Sage Zbinden, a graphic designs freshman, said he appreciated the evening.
“I really enjoyed the faculty and staff serving us and putting our needs first,” Zbinden said.

Dr. David Pearson, dean of the College of Health Science, enjoys taking part in the tradition at CBU.
“This event gives me a great opportunity to spend time with students who I normally wouldn’t get to interact with,” Pearson said. “As a dean, it’s really cool to surprise students by doing things like serving them or picking up trash. I love seeing their smiles.”
