For 26 years Midnight Breakfast (held at 11 PM) has been a Westminster tradition. Now, many colleges are following suit. Trisha Teig, Assistant Dean of Students, says, “I haven’t been at a college campus where they haven’t had a late-night breakfast for finals weeks,” she said. “It’s a positive tradition at a lot of institutions.” Midnight breakfast, held in Shaw, has faculty and staff members line up to cook and serve students breakfast from 11:00 PM to midnight. Dean of Students Mark Ferne says, in the past, over 600 students have come to Shaw for the Midnight Breakfast. He says it’s the second largest school sponsored event, next to the dances.
Diane Foster-Burke, professor in Nursing and Health Sciences, has been participating in Midnight breakfast for about 20 years. She says she enjoys serving breakfast because it gives her a break from being a faculty member to greet and serve students in a more casual atmosphere.
