Pancakes with The President - TONIGHT!

I'm not sure about you, but after all this studying and a grueling job search, I could really use some relaxation. Luckily, tonight all can unwind and enjoy Pancakes with the President at Westview Dining, starting at 10:30 p.m. tonight!

All students are free (even those without meal plans) as long as they show their student I.D. There will be food, fun, prizes, games, and more! President Eisler will be serving food, clearing tables, and chatting with students all night long. The festivities last until 12:30 a.m.

A huge thanks to Student Government and Ferris Dining Services for putting on this event every semester. I can't wait to eat my weight in pancakes!
