RIT Midnight Breakfast Enlists Faculty/Staff To Help Students Brave Finals

Follow RITNEWS on Twitter You desperately need a study break, and of course, you have the munchies. As you enter the dining hall, you see your English professor wearing a hairnet and serving scrambled eggs.

The annual Midnight Breakfast at Rochester Institute of Technology, a stress-relieving tradition bringing hundreds of faculty, staff and students together in an informal setting, takes place 10:30 p.m.Ė12:30 a.m., Thursday, Feb. 21, Hettie L. Shumway Dining Commons.

Last year, nearly 1,000 students attended and 100 faculty and staff volunteers served breakfast, bussed tables and cleaned. This year, the crowd is expected to be larger than ever, giving everyone a break from the vigors of finals.

Phil Tam-Al Alalibo, assistant director of residential education for RITís Center for Residence Life, is coordinating the event and says that the RIT community looks forward to this event each year. "The number of faculty and staff who have signed up to volunteer is just astounding. The students love it, the staff loves it and itís one of those events that everyone looks forward to each year."

This event is only open to the RIT community.
