Midnight Breakfast has been a long-standing tradition on The Hill, bringing faculty and students together in the midst of chaotic times surrounding the end of the semester. This year, Midnight Breakfast will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 3, at 11 p.m. in the dining hall.
Midnight Breakfast is where faculty and staff help cook and serve a late-night breakfast for their students the night before finals start. According to Whitney Mosley, director of student life, there will not only be food at this event, but there will also be “four giveaways raffled off every 15 minutes”
Mosley said that she personally enjoys seeing the fellowship between students and faculty at Midnight Breakfasts.
“I get excited every year when we open the doors to see a long line of hungry students!” said Mosley. “I enjoy spending that time with everyone on ‘The Hill.’”
Ryan Jennings, senior accounting major, said Midnight Breakfast is a “great tradition” that has been one of his favorites during his past four years at Shorter.
Jennings added that he loves being able to spend time with both his friends and professors “in a stress-free environment,” which he added is a rare feature for a college.
“There are not many schools where faculty and staff will come cook and serve you food at midnight,” said Jennings. “It is truly a unique aspect of Shorter. It is a very nice and deserved break for everyone.”
