AACC’s Office of Student Engagement gave free breakfast for students to welcome them back to campus on the first day of spring classes.

Neena Robertson, the program coordinator for events, helped serve a buffet of waffles, bacon, eggs, coffee, juice and water.

Robertson said the hungry students left no extra food behind after the event.

“They were good, I was hungry,” Magdaline Thompson, a second-year creative writing student, said about the food.

“It’s phenomenal, it tastes really good,” said Darius Green, a second-year culinary arts student. He said he heard about the breakfast from SASP– the Student Achievement and Success Program. “[They] just said to go get some free breakfast before it’s all gone,” Green said.

Both students said they were thankful for the food, with Green adding: “I’m thankful, cause I’m one that appreciates things that are given to me.” Green also said he wanted to remind his fellow students to “thank everyone who’s giving you free resources and be grateful that you’re in such a great place.”

Students can expect more perks coming up as classes start up.

CAB, the Campus Activities Board, will hold a Letter Art event on Thursday Jan. 24, in the Careers Lobby from 11-2 and offer free Chick-fil-A in the SUN Dining Hall on Friday Jan. 25 from 12-1.
