Starving Student Guide: Finding Free Food

As the new Director of Student Life, I am coming to realize how much food plays a role in the lives of college students.


The struggle is real, but it doesn't have to be during our campus event days! I have heard that the best way to entice our students is with free food, hence, we love to feed our students! These are some of the events on campus where we offer free food:

1. Welcome Week

Welcome Week

This event takes place at the start of every new trimester for the first three days of class. Come eat lunch, mingle with classmates, staff, and faculty, and learn more about academic clubs and other school groups.

2. Pancake Feed

These take place at the end of every trimester during finals week. From Monday – Thursday, enjoy the most delicious pancakes you’ve eaten in your life. Forget IHOP, you’ll be anxiously awaiting your finals breakfast of champs term after term!
