Midnight Breakfast

Monday, December 12 | 9 PM | University Student Center

Midnight Breakfast is a great opportunity for you to take a break from studying for final exams, grab FREE food, and relax with friends at the end of the semester. When you enter the University Student Center on Monday, Dec. 12 it will look like you’ve wandered into a “sweet dream,” with inflatables and giveaways, including a limited number of t-shirts and tote bags! Got a bit of a sweet-tooth? Midnight Breakfast has you covered with sweet treats, too! All students are welcome!
