To help all students during that never-easy exam period, Leeds University Union gave out a whopping 3,987 free exam breakfasts, stayed open for an additional 140 hours in Common Ground to provide students with an alternative 24 hour revision space; and put on almost 20 wellbeing and Light Cafe events which included bringing the infamous Pepper and Fidget our very own therapy dogs into the Union.
Leeds University Union served up five times more free breakfasts than last year’s 800, proving the growing hunger for these free perks.
The free exam breakfasts went down a storm once again, and the results are in on which of the breakfasts on offer were the most popular pick with students to get them started for a day in the library or exam hall.
In total, 3,987 free exam breakfasts were picked up from both Common Ground and Old Bar with 133 bowls of porridge warming your mornings, 1,148 pastries snapped up, but the overall winner being the hot sausage, bacon, or veggie sausage sandwiches which students consumed 2,706 of.
Welfare Officer Chloe Sparks said:
“I’m pleased to see so many students took us up on our free breakfast to keep you fueled and focused for your work. As a Union we’re always looking for ways to support you with all aspects of student life and if a sausage sandwich helped to get that essay sorted then we will continue to put resource into the things you want.”
This is the third year Leeds University Union has provided the infamous free exam breakfast during the exam period and will be looking to dish it out come the summer exams.
As always, the Union strives to offer exam and academic support all year round, and will, if your exam didn’t go as well as you hoped, their dedicated LUU Advice team can help you here.
