Day 22: Midnight Breakfast

By on December 10, 2013

Midnight breakfastToday is Day 22 in the Countdown to UTEP’s Centennial Year.

A tradition that is welcomed by UTEP students every semester is the Midnight Breakfast. It offers students a chance to take a break from their studies for finals and enjoy a free meal.

Over 1000 students take advantage of the Midnight Breakfast while also enjoying live music and a chance to win prizes.

Faculty, staff, and student organizations volunteer their time assisting with preparation, serving food, and cleaning throughout the morning.  The Midnight Breakfasts are one of the most popular events on the UTEP calendar.

This year’s Midnight Breakfast begins tonight at 11:30 p.m. at the El Paso Natural Gas Conference Center and is coordinated by the UTEP Department of Residence Life and the Division of Student Affairs, which has been sponsoring the event since 1991.
