A new tradition may be born this weekend at Fort Hays State University along with the already-traditional "Late Night at the Library" during finals week.
The "Late Night at the Library" will begin at 6 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 9, in Forsyth Library, with pizza available for the first 200 students with ID. Apples, oranges, cookies and water will also be available and from 6 to 7 p.m., coffee and cappuccino will be free.
At the "Finals Feeding Frenzy" there will be pancakes available at 11 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 9, and running until 1 a.m. Monday, Dec. 10 in the Memorial Union.
Robert Duffy, coordinator of the Drug Alcohol Wellness Network, encourages faculty and staff to attend the student appreciation event as a way to interact with students outside of a classroom setting.
"Preparing for finals can be a difficult time and a simple meal break can be meaningful for our students," said Duffy.
Faculty and staff servers are still needed for the event and faculty and staff can sign up for shifts from 11 p.m. to 12 a.m. or 12 a.m. to 1 a.m. by contacting the Kelly Center at 628-4401 or e-mail Duffy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The event is sponsored by Student Affairs, the Memorial Union, Forsythe Library, Residential Life, the Residence Hall Association, Chartwells and the Kelly Center.
