The Diversity Advocacy program will be hosting Study Jams Late Night Breakfast at the Student Services Building (SSB), Room 375, to offer students a study break during finals.
From 8 to 10 p.m. tonight, students can expect to find plenty of pancakes, eggs, bacon and sausage provided by the Bob Evans restaurant in Bloomington.
While Study Jams sessions will take place tonight and Tuesday night from 5 p.m. to midnight in the Student Services Building, students are encouraged to take a study break and take advantage of the free hot breakfast during tonight’s session.
In a time that is typically the most stressful part of the semester for college students, the late night breakfast will offer them a chance to fill up on fuel and find motivation to keep studying for their final exams.
“It’s hard to find a place to study during finals,” Ashley Taylor, specialist for educational programming at Diversity Advocacy, said. “The library is crowded, the Bone Center is packed — [Study Jams] gives students the opportunity to find more space and have more of a quiet environment to study.”
By putting on events like these around finals time each year, Diversity Advocacy ensures that students “don’t have to go hungry while studying,” she said. “This way students can start finals with a hearty meal.”
“It is important that snacks are provided to students to keep their energy levels high,” Brittney Henson, educational programming graduate assistant for the Dean of Students office, said.
“The staff at Diversity Advocacy understands the stressors that students face around finals time,” Henson added. “Because of this, staff members want to provide a quiet and relaxing space for students to study … and want to reward students for their hard work throughout the semester, which is why a free, hot breakfast is provided.”
