The Student Government Association at Savannah State University hosted a midnight breakfast on Dec. 3 at 9 p.m. in the King-Frazier café. More than 750 students showed up in support of the Student Government Association’s Monday night event.
When asked the mission of the midnight brunch, senior global logistics major and SGA President Malik Bradley said, “The mission of the midnight brunch was to facilitate a stress-free environment for students during one the most stressful weeks.”
Traditionally, the midnight breakfast takes place during registration, not during the week of finals. However, the night party gave students a chance to relax before a hectic week of exams.
“The midnight brunch is a traditional event that could be revamped," Bradley said. "The brunch was better than expectations, having a turnout of over 750 students.”
Music could be heard playing outside the walls of King-Frazier until at least midnight. Music for the midnight breakfast was presented by DJ Highlyfe and DJ Rook.
The cafeteria served grits, eggs, French toast, bacon, sausage, and cereal until 11 p.m. Several of the Divine Nine sororities and fraternities made appearances at the event including the Delta Eta chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated, and Gamma Upsilon chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated.
Though an overwhelming success in the eyes of SGA, not all students who attended said they had a great time.
Jordan Clay, a senior visual and performing arts major, said they wished that the environment was more conducive for studying.
“Savannah State wonders why so many students struggle with academics when the focus is consistently put on partying and turning up and not on education," Clay said.
