FACULTY & STAFF SERVE
STUDENTS AT LATE-NIGHT BREAKFAST
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.
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."
