Students Warm Up to Another Semester

Encouraging students to shake the winter blues, Student Life and Activities hosted the “Warm Up to Another Semester” event in the Student Life Center on Thursday, January 23. All were invited to indulge in a variety of foods, drinks and leisure activities. 

Students could not hide their smiles as they saw a complimentary latte and hot cocoa bar set up right in the middle of the Martin Luther King Lounge. Lines formed to add marshmallows, whipped cream, chocolate sauce and caramel drizzle to their favorite hot drinks. Neon signs emphasized “Free Smoothies” by Maui Wowi Hawaiian Coffee & Smoothies and students were not shy about coming back for seconds. 

As if that was not enough, free massages were offered to students on their way to and from classes. Harpist Elizabeth Morgan-Ellis also helped students relax with live music.
