On Monday, Dec. 4, SEA Board will host Crunch Brunch from 9 p.m. to 12 a.m. in the University Center Pit. Crunch Brunch will serve students free breakfast cuisine like fruit, cereal, pastries, eggs and bacon as a break from studying during finals week.
Kristen Bingham, vice president of traditional events for SEA Board, explained that Crunch Brunch is a way for students to do a little relaxing instead of just studying for hours on end.
“You need that ‘you’ time in order to study effectively,” said Bingham. “It can’t just be all working, you need to take some time out of your work schedule and just relax, focus on you and have fun.”
On top of food for students, SEA Board has been looking into having additional activities that may also help students de-stress from exams. Bingham said she has been working on booking massage therapists and potentially even an oxygen bar as fun and creative ways for students to relax, but nothing is set in stone yet.
In the past, Crunch Brunch has offered karaoke, but SEA Board is looking to omit that this year. Many students study in the UC during finals week, so SEA Board would like to respect those who need to work and keep the noise down.
Crunch Brunch happens at the end of every semester, right before or during finals week, and has always been an NSU student favorite.
“I really enjoyed the Crunch Brunch last year and it was definitely needed during finals week,” said Carly Dickinson, a sophomore biology major. “It was so nice to just take a break from studying and enjoy some warm, delicious breakfast food. It really freshened me back to life to study and retain that info.”
Crunch Brunch is free to attend for all students with presentation of their NSU I.D. or their N number. Bingham urges all students to come out for the event, even if they feel like they need to keep studying.
