  • Midnight Breakfast call for volunteers

    At the start of finals week each semester the Student Housing Association (SHA), APB and Sodexo hosts a Midnight Breakfast at The Loft for students to partake in as they prepare for their finals. This year, the Midnight Breakfast is scheduled for Tuesday, April 29th  from 9:00pm-midnight.

    Traditionally, we like to make a call for volunteers who would be willing to assist with various tasks at the event. We will need greeters, servers, and people to help bus tables as the night progresses. If you would be interested in volunteering at Midnight Breakfast, please reply to Karen Huseman at kahuseman@usi.edu  and specify how long and what you would like to assist with that night. We have three shifts to choose from (8:45 – 9:45, 9:45 – 10:45 and 10:45 – midnight). Midnight Breakfast is an event that our students enjoy very much, and it will be great to have you take part in this program and support our students as they prepare for their final exams! Don’t forget to mark your calendars for the night of Tuesday, April 29th!

    Students register online via myUSI (my.usi.edu) according to the total of their earned plus currently enrolled hours, and are encouraged to register on their first day of eligibility.
