Trinity faculty and staff stayed on campus later than usual Tuesday, December 9, helping to ease students' stress levels during finals week by serving them a meal in the dining hall.

Known as "Late Night Breakfast," this annual feast, coordinated by the student development office, encourages attendees to wear pajamas or other casual attire. This year's menu featured tacos, mini-pizza, popcorn, bagels, ice cream, and other finger foods.

President Steven Timmermans read from the book "The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey" as the college students sat cross-legged on the floor, captivated by the animated illustrations that accompanied the narrative. Later, they joined in singing Christmas carols that led the group into a praise and worship service in the Ozinga Chapel.

"This was a terrific evening," Timmermans said. "I want to continue strengthening the connection between faculty, staff, and students, and our willingness to help them relax a bit during finals serves that purpose. It's important for students to know that we support them, particularly this time of year."
