Annual Pancake Supper Runs Syrupy Smooth Once Again

It was a hit with students in 1994 and remains one 20 years after its debut. December’s annual Pancake Supper is a cherished tradition for students, faculty, and staff alike. The serving-breakfast-for-dinner approach has proven to be a relaxing and quite popular balm during the otherwise stressful period of end of semester finals.
Invited to “Come and see your favorite deans and professors flip,” more than 100 students flocked to the law school’s café on Dec. 3 to be treated to pancakes, scrambled eggs, bacon, and other goodies served up by volunteers from the faculty and staff.
They could go through the line or be served right at their tables - no tipping required. The meal was free to all with a student ID.
“IHOP Comes to CUA Law” also provided a rare social opportunity for day and evening division students to mix and mingle. Its 7:30 pm start time kept many volunteer cooks and servers in the building longer than usual, but that has never affected enthusiasm for the event, which continues to draw eager participants year after year.
