Traditional Pancake Supper Brings Hungry Students Flocking

Who needs IHOP?  The law school’s traditional end-of-the-first semester pancake dinner for students immersed in finals drew a large number of healthy appetites to the Law School Café during the evening of Dec. 6.
There, students were served up piping hot pancakes, eggs, bacon, sausage, and breakfast potatoes by faculty and staff volunteers, no tipping necessary.

Not listed on the menu was the “three-dean special,” which featured law school Acting Dean George Garvey and Associate Dean Mara Duffy in the serving line; while Dean-designate Daniel F. Attridge, whose appointment as the next leader of the Columbus School of Law was announced in late November, attended and personally greeted each and every student.  
Now in its 19th year, the Annual Pancake Supper is a cherished seasonal tradition that allows hard-working finals students to relax and fortify with a good meal, while faculty and staff members good-naturedly take a turn flipping at the grill and checking out their look in aprons.
The Pancake Supper is organized by the Office of Student Life and Special Events through the efforts of Patty Davila, Rachel Porter, Kate Petersen and Director Joan Vorrasi.
