Erie, Pa. – Good news for hungry Gannon University students facing the stress of finals week: Pancakes are on the way.
President Keith Taylor, Ph.D., will be serving up pancakes and other breakfast food to Gannon students at the annual “MidKnight Pancake Breakfast” from 9:30 p.m. until midnight Sunday in Beyer Cafeteria.
The event, free to all students, takes place every year the weekend before finals week and is sponsored by the President’s Office. Taylor and other faculty members will be serving food to students, and door prizes for students will be raffled off throughout the night.
The event routinely draws between 700 and 800 students.
“I look forward to it every year because it’s great food and a good break from studying for finals,” said Alli Hess, a senior Advertising Communications major.
This MidKnight Pancake Breakfast will be Isabella Kennelley’s first. The freshman marketing major said she’s excited to participate in the tradition.
“I am looking forward to the pancake breakfast because I want to experience a Gannon tradition that also includes amazing staff and amazing food,” Kennelley said.
