Dining Services to help with stress cravings

by Chasity King

With just a few classes remaining in the semester, it is beginning to look a lot like finals week. While many students are ready to ditch their book bags for holiday shopping bags, they must first survive the week of cumulative exams and lengthy research papers. Luckily, Armstrong Dining is hosting a few delicious events to keep your hunger satisfied during the last week of school.  

Between Monday, Dec. 7, and Saturday, Dec. 12, the Galley plans to feature three different events that are sure to satisfy stress cravings.

“We feature elements necessary to help our customers relieve some of the stress that is typically associated with exam time,” director of operations for dining services Stacy Callis said.

For those needing a break from studying, the Galley will serve their annual late night breakfast  Monday, Dec. 7, from 8–10 p.m. Waffles, pancakes, eggs and bacon are just a few of the items on the menu.

Carnival Night will take place Tuesday, Dec. 8, during dinner service hours. Students will find music and disco lights as well as items such as a chocolate fountain, a pretzel bar, a hot dog bar with plenty of toppings and more.

To end the week, the Galley will host an ice cream eating contest Wednesday, Dec. 9. In order to participate, students must sign up inside the Galley. Contestants will receive a giant bowl of ice cream and whoever eats the most in one minute will receive a goodie bag full of treats.

Callis noted, “These events are designed to offer students a chance to blow off some steam with good foods and fun activities with their friends while not consuming a huge amount of time so they can get back to studying.
