To college students, time and food are perhaps the most valuable things in life.
Now, students have access to a quick, easy and delicious breakfast. In the campus bookstore, Daylight Donuts and coffee are now available for students until Dec. 6.
“We saw a need for students to grab something quick on their way to classes,” said bookstore staff member Jacqueline Eaton. “So far, we’ve sold 100 percent of the donuts we provide, and about 70 percent of the coffee. It’s been so popular, we are discussing bringing it back next semester.”
Currently, only students who are on a meal plan and live on campus have access to a breakfast provided by the college in the dining hall. A few years ago, there used to be a café inside the library that sold coffee, smoothies and baked goods, but it has since gone under.
However, students seem to be pleased with the donuts and coffee provided in the union.
“I think it’s a good thing for students that need a quick boost in the morning” said HutchCC student Dylan Kramer, McPherson. “I haven’t been down there yet, but I’m excited to try it.”
Should the donuts and coffee prove popular, more options could be on the horizon.
“The campus store staff had discussed offering frozen breakfast sandwiches, cereal, milk and a whole number of things but finally settled on coffee and donuts because of the cost to our students,” Eaton said. “As long as there is an interest in this by both students and staff, we would love to expand this. Into what yet, we are not quite sure.”
