Who doesn’t like pancakes? They don’t just make our tongue water but they also make us happy and usually create happy moments!
Last week was the first week of the Winter Quarter at Globe University in Minneapolis and the staff decided to help put the students at ease with some good old fashioned pancakes!
Students were flooding onto campus and their minds were filled with many questions, like, “Where is my marketing class?” and “Am I going to be able to handle this business class?” and of course the silent question, “When does this accounting class end?”
Our solution to these questions and fears? Serve pancakes with a warm and welcoming smile.
Most health experts will tell us more reasons than not why eating pancakes are bad, but they will all agree they are a hearty option. Pancakes provide a high quantity of carbohydrates and a range of vitamins and minerals, BUT…(here is the but)…pancakes are relatively high in fat, calories and sodium.
The staff at Globe in Minneapolis has four reasons why we think pancakes are good for students the first week of class:
- Students have the opportunity to meet the staff;
- It eases fear;
- Students connect with other students;
- It shows our students that we really care about them.
Food experts and critics alike can agree on one thing – food brings us together. We have some of the best conversations and go deeper in our relationships over a meal.
Globe University student, Bill Cloak, who is majoring in criminal justice, said, “I had so much fun laughing with other students – it was a great way to start my quarter.”
And just for the record, there was a suggested two-pancake maximum per student so we didn’t break any health rules…of course we are joking!
Bottom line is that Globe University-Minneapolis cares about students – we are family and we put your education and your career first!
