Annual 'Late-Night Breakfast' kicks off finals week

More than half of Marietta College’s student body began finals week with a full belly.

More than 600 students filled up on scrambled eggs, sausage, pancakes and steak as the College held its annual “Late-Night Breakfast” from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Sunday night in Gilman Dining Hall. Students also feasted on freshly made waffles and omelets, and donuts, cereal and hash browns.

Students also won prizes from Pepsi, including one winner of an X-Box game system.

“It was obviously another successful ‘Late-Night Breakfast’ because it was clear the students had a great time,” said Kasey Drennen, Staff Assistant of Student Activities. “This has become one of the favorite activities of our students.”

Around 50 members of the faculty, staff and administration — including President Jean Scott and Provost Sue DeWine — gathered at 10:30 p.m. to begin cooking and preparing for the onslaught of students. Two hours later more than half the student body was fed and off to study for finals.

Marietta College’s finals week is Dec. 13-17.
