Students Ease Pre-Finals Jitters at ‘Midnight’ Oasis

More than 600 students – 601, to be exact – were served when Dining Services’ long-running Midnight Breakfast tradition was held this past week in the Keystone Dining Room. Timed each semester to help relieve the dread and panic of Finals Week, the free event serves up a yummy blend of food, music, massages and other giveaways.
