Finals week is approaching quickly, and the coffee machines are already whirring.
As late-night study sessions at RBD and all-nighters in Mell inevitably normalize in the ensuing days, with them comes a growing number of coffee cups clutched in the hands of heavy-eyed students as they walk to and from class, study rooms and, for some lucky students, bedrooms.
Students shouldn’t fear for a shortage of caffeine in Auburn, however, especially with Auburn’s Annual Coffee Crawl hosted by Auburn’s flagship chapter of Universities Fighting World Hunger.
“I think what makes the Coffee Crawl enjoyable is that it encourages people to try out different coffee shops in the area, and it provides something useful for finals week — coffee,” said Meg McCalley, the organization’s president and a senior in French.
From Dec. 1–14, UFWHIAuburn will host the Auburn Coffee Crawl with all proceeds going to benefit the Campus Food Pantry to provide support to food-insecure students on campus.
“The Campus Food Pantry is unique because they don’t require those who use it to prove financial need, making it accessible to students and employees, even if they need it for just a short time,” McCalley said.
Students can purchase tickets for $5, which will get them a drink as well as discounts to participating coffee shops throughout Auburn, including Ross House, The Bean, Coffee Cat, World Cup, Mama Mocha’s, Whimsy Beverage Bar and One Bike Coffee.
