Over the past two decades, the Emerson community has gathered around the kitchen to indulge and refuel before final exams. 

"It has been going on for so many years, that we have difficulty trying to pinpoint the exact year the event began,” Dave Haden, associate dean, said in an email.

The Late Night Buffet traditionally serves breakfast in December, prepared and served by college faculty, staff, and administrators. For the spring, students can look forward to an ice cream sundae bar, sausage and pepper subs, grilled bratwurst subs, a chicken wing bar, a french fries and nachos bar, peppermint stick milkshakes, popcorn, and soft pretzels.
