With finals and studying going on eating a good meal is the last thing on most college students to do list. Students at Southeastern enjoyed a good breakfast Tuesday provided by dining services here on campus. Students and faculty members volunteered their time to help assist in serving breakfast. Earl Thomas a student and police officer at Southeastern said,
“I volunteered because I like helping out whenever I can and I had some free time and I why not go and volunteer.”
There were students filling the staircase; there was even a line that extended into the union to enter the cafeteria. Students had to use their meal plan or pay $7.36 to enter the cafeteria. Grits, sausage, eggs, biscuits, and pancakes are just a few of the food items that are available for students to chose from.
Brittney Gonsoulin a Junior Criminal Justice major at Southeastern said,
“I’ve been coming to late night breakfast ever since, I was a freshman. It is a chance to take a break from the studying and socialize with friends.”
The cafeteria was packed with students some students even took the time to study while enjoying breakfast. Brianca James a Senior Kinesiology major at Southeastern said,
“I look forward to the late night breakfast because I don’t have to worry about what I’m going to eat that night.”
The volunteers were friendly to students as they come up to their stations to get breakfast. Leia Turner a Sophomore Early Education Major at Southeastern said,
“I like coming to late night breakfast because I don’t have to worry about spending extra money on food because I could just swipe my ID.”
The lines were long in the beginning, but as time passed fewer people were waiting in line. Students could barely move around in parts of the cafeteria because they were so many people. Terrimeeka Albert a Sophomore Criminal Justice Major at Southeastern said, “It reminds me of Waffle House, but it is free.” Some students were even skipping line to get breakfast.
Amryi Davis a Freshman General Studies Major here at Southeastern said,
“This was my first time experiencing late night breakfast and I liked the break it gave me from studying.”
