Volunteers Sought for Midnight Breakfast, Dec. 13-14
The breakfast, which begins at 11 p.m. on Dec. 13 and ends at 1 a.m. the next morning, gives a break to students studying for final examinations that begin Dec. 15. More than 3,100 students and over 130 faculty and staff participated in the previous two midnight breakfasts. The event, which has become an end-of-semester tradition at UConn, is an opportunity for students and staff to interact in an informal setting before the conclusion of the semester.
To volunteer, contact Tiffany Burkitt by phone at (860) 486-2265 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
