Students showed up for a coffee night Wednesday, Nov. 20 at the LAC between Buildings A and E, but most visited the coffee table and walked away.
The Associated Student Body Cabinet’s flier for the event asked students to bring their questions, comments and concerns.
Cabinet President Marco Mendoza, said, “The coffee night was a great success.
We, as a Cabinet, enjoyed interacting and spending time with the students we represent. Through interaction with the students we had the opportunity to hear what was on their minds.” Mendoza added, “We hope that whatever we do, it will be something that will have a positive impact. We will continue to do our best to plan events that will allow us to give of ourselves to the student body.”
Elizabeth Write, 20, a communications major, said, “Free caffeine makes life tolerable. You would have to be from a different planet not to enjoy this. I would like to have some hot chocolate too, please.”
ASB Communications Representative Amelia Bolton said the coffee night was a much-needed opportunity to encourage students to apply for the Spring Cabinet’s appointed positions.
Kennedy Holland, 19, a linguistic anthropology major, said, “When things are free, I am there. Coffee is great right now.
I have a class that will go until 10 p.m. I would like to see this happen again with some tables, chairs and hot chocolate because I love hot chocolate. I definitely would like this to happen again soon.” Student Life Coordinator Maya Cardenas said, “Wednesday’s event was a very successful night.
I heard input from students about many concerns. We did coffee night to hear from students willing to talk about good and bad concerns. Having a coffee night makes the ASB visible to the students. We will be having more coffee nights in the future. The next one will be at the PCC.”
Consuella Judkins, 40, a faculty teacher said, “Coffee is good for night students who work full-time in the day. The server needed better customer-service skills and knowledge about the type of coffee she was serving.”
