Perry to enjoy pastries with students

Stephanie White, Entertainment Editor

Students can come and eat pastries with President Bill Perry during ‘Pastries with the Prez’ on Tuesday, hosted by the Student Senate.

The event will be at 4 p.m. at Java Beanery and Bakery in the Martin Luther King Jr. University Union.

Reggie Thedford, the student body president, said this is the first of four events in the series for the semester.

Thedford said the idea is to have one event per month for students to interact with President Perry.

He said there are going to be free pastries along with selected drinks offered by Java Beanery and Bakery.

Students will be able to eat pastries while socializing with President Perry.

The only difference between this semester and the last, besides the events themselves, are the dates and times it will take place, Thedford said.

Last semester, the series occurred on Tuesdays, but the dates will be changed this semester to allow more students to attend.

“Last semester students said they were not able to go (because of) the date of the event,” Thedford said. “It still will be held in the late afternoon and whenever Perry is available, but the days will change so students will be able to attend them.”
