Faculty, staff feed more than 600 during spring 'Late-Night Breakfast'

Students began lining up outside Gilman Dining Hall around 10 p.m. — an hour before the doors opened for the highly anticipated “Late-Night Breakfast” at Marietta College.

When the doors finally opened more than 600 MC students were served food by professors and staff from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m. Sunday, April 24. Other faculty and staff cooked, cleaned and waited tables as students took a break from studying for finals.

“The Late-Night Breakfast is a study break for students who have been studying hard all weekend, and a chance for faculty and staff to step out of their classrooms and offices and interact with students in a different way,” said Melissa Liptak, Director of Student Activities and Greek Life.

Marietta’s “Breakfast” is a long-standing tradition the Sunday before fall finals. But the success of that event presented the Office of Student Activities and Greek Life with an opportunity to carry the tradition into the spring.

Marietta College’s finals week is April 25-29. The 168th Commencement at Marietta is at 1 p.m. May 8.
