undreds of students filled the Atlantic Dining Hall to take advantage of the free late night breakfast Wednesday night.

The event took place as part of the annual Up Owl Night promotion put on by FAU’s Supplemental Instruction, which also held tutoring sessions in the Student Union’s Silver, Queen and Sugar Palm rooms during the day. Food options included everything from eggs, sausage and potatoes to coffee, fruit, doughnuts and orange juice.

“The food was good, I got some doughnuts,” freshman accounting major Dominique Samedi said. “It’s basically like the caf’s normal breakfast, but with a few twists.”

Sophomore social work major Nadia Johnson went to the late night breakfast last year and said the two events were pretty similar, but that it was much more crowded this year.

“Last year, I don’t remember them having a DJ, I just remember music playing from the speakers,” she said. “There’s also a lot of people, I just feel like there’s more people than last year.”

For Samedi, the meal served as a break from her studying in preparation for an accounting final.

“It hasn’t been that stressful,” she said. “My first final is on Saturday, so basically I’ve had a whole week to study.”

Johnson said that after she ate she was going to study for her finals at the library, but she was also dealing with some problems outside of her coursework.

“I actually have to go to the library because my laptop just crashed,” she said.

Samedi said she believes taking a break from finals would help other students who stress.

“There’s a lot of stuff put on by FAU you can attend,” she said. “I did the yoga yesterday, so try to look around for things like that.”
