Food For Thought
Are you tired of studying for finals and feeling as though your head is going to explode from all the information crammed inside? If you’re getting sick of late nights, subsisting on Ramen noodles and popcorn, then come and join your fellow students, faculty, and staff for three nights of “Food For Thought”. With the semester ending, this will be a last opportunity to visit with your friends and professors before we all leave for Christmas break.
These dinners, held during finals week in the Rusty Musket, are sponsored by Aramark and Student Life, and have long been a tradition at GSC for many years. With all the stresses of finals, this event allows students the chance to relax, enjoy a good meal and participate in some fun activities at no cost to themselves.
The first of these dinners will be after the basketball game on Monday, December 10th from 9:00 – 10:00 p.m. This meal will be a late night breakfast consisting of all your favorite items, from pancakes and sausage, to eggs and bacon. For those who may have missed too many breakfasts due to being caught up in school work and studying for finals, this will give you the chance to enjoy all those morning meals that might have been missed.
Tuesday night’s dinner will start a little earlier, beginning at 7:00 p.m. and continuing until 9:00 p.m. The theme for this dinner is taco night, but this will include other items for those who are not taco aficionados. After dinner, stick around and join in the entertainment following this meal. This entertainment will consist of a board game night featuring such youthful games like Monopoly, Candy Land, and Mousetrap, to the more mentally stimulating games such as Trivial Pursuit and Scrabble.
These dinners will conclude on Wednesday night, December 12 with an ice cream social. This event is also held in the Rusty Musket from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. This is again followed by the continuation of board game night for those who might have missed the previous evening’s entertainment, or for those intense gamers who actually want to finish a game of Monopoly.
So don’t starve your body while over feeding your brain. Take some time off from all the stress of finals week and spend a few hours relaxing and enjoying time with your fellow students. After a short time off from studying, you will find that getting back to your books will be a lot easier and the information more apt to be retained than by sitting and cramming volumes of material with no break at all.
