Very early on a crisp, fall morning the silhouette of a massive object can be seen in the distance masked by the fog that hangs slightly above the ground. Rochester College’s campus is simple and unassuming, nothing ever takes an unsuspecting visitor by surprise. Except for this immense profile of an object, seemingly not movable by human hands.
Nearing closer to this thing, the mystery of its identity soon fades as the mystery of what it represents takes center stage. A rock as large as a midsize Mini Cooper sits at the center of campus, painted completely Shrek green.
Introduced in 1976, Midnight Breakfast was developed to provide encouragement to Rochester College students during finals week with a meal cooked and served by staff and faculty at midnight.
This event has evolved into a beloved tradition on campus for students and employees alike. On the Monday during finals week, students are treated to a free breakfast served at 11 p.m. The event allows time for both residential and commuters to come together to enjoy a meal as a community before the semester comes to a close. Students also enjoy the opportunity to unwind before the start of finals week.
