Bacon, eggs, and slices of white and wheat bread are being gathered in preparation for Penn State York’s free late night breakfast set for 8 to 10 p.m. Monday, May 2, at the campus. Members of the faculty, staff and alumni will sharpen their culinary skills, along with some help from the head chef in the campus’s dining area, and prepare egg sandwiches for hungry students needing a break from studying for finals. Coffee, donuts and soda complete the menu for the evening.
The event is free to members of the Penn State York community and takes place in the Lion’s Den of the Joe and Rosie Ruhl Student Community Center. The late night breakfast has become a popular event on campus and provides a way for faculty and staff to connect with students and help them relieve some stress as they study for finals.
In addition to the food, students can show off their vocals skills and take part in an open microphone or karaoke. Members of the Penn State York Alumni Society also will be on-hand to present graduating seniors with a small gift and provide information about the activities and events available to alumni.
