“Stop Day Brunch was a great chance for students to take a break from stressing out about finals and to recharge with good friends and good food,” explains Melissa Kingston, KU Hillel’s program director. “We are here to support the students in any way we can.”
“It was a really good chance to rejuvenate before finals,” agrees senior Nikki Multer. “We were able to see everybody and eat before going back to studying.” Besides providing a well-deserved study break, the brunch also gave students a chance to see all of their Hillel friends before heading home for the summer.
KU Hillel’s downtown location was also open to students all of finals week. This was especially useful as libraries and coffee shops filled up quickly during the busy study time. “It’s nice to have a place to study that is reliably available and always has snacks,” KU Hillel junior Ally Levine explains.
