Volunteers Needed To Help
During Midnight Breakfast

Faculty and staff are invited to cook, serve, and clean up after a Midnight Breakfast for students that will take place in the South Campus dining hall and ballroom December 7-8.

Volunteers are asked to arrive between 9:45 p.m. and 10 p.m. in the All-Purpose Room on the first floor of Rome Hall, Building D of the South Campus complex, to receive their assignments.

The breakfast, which begins at 10:30 p.m. on December 7 and ends at 12:30 a.m. the next morning, gives a break to students studying for final examinations.

About 20 volunteers are needed to stay an additional 45 minutes after the event to help clean up.

The event, which has become an end-of-semester tradition at UConn, is also an opportunity for students to interact with faculty and staff in an informal setting.

Last year more than 4,000 students and over 100 faculty and staff participated, including University President Philip E. Austin and Provost John D. Petersen.

To volunteer, call 860.486.3426 or send e-mail to:, by Friday, November 21.
