Typically, the average life of a college student involves a lot of coffee and a lot of late nights studying/doing homework. If you fit the stereotype and do like to drink coffee then I have some great news for you.
Monday through Friday mornings there is free coffee in the Student Life office located in the Penguin Union Building (PUB) 160. I am guilty of stopping by everyday (if I am on campus) because they also have hot water, microwaves, a fridge, utensils, a sink and basically everything you need in the mornings. They use Boyd’s coffee and carry a wide selection of creamers and sugars to allow you to cater to your personal taste. Additionally at the beginning of every term they offer free coffee tumblers; what else can you really ask for?
I would say the only downside to this excellent free service is that they only operate in the mornings. With that being said, the fridge, sink and microwave are there for use at all hours. Something that you want to keep in mind when using the fridge is to label, label, label! I made the mistake of not labeling my food the first time that I used the student kitchen and my food was unfortunately thrown away/eaten/stolen. I will never really know happened to those hot pockets… Nonetheless the student kitchen is still a great benefit.
However, if you are not near the Penguin Union Building, there are still other places to buy coffee around campus. Buildings with coffee shops in them include Joan Stout Hall (located in AA complex), Hanna Hall, the Bakery (located in Gaiser Hall), Bauer Hall and the Bookstore (located in Gaiser Hall). Below I have included a table of these locations’ hours.
