Community Café Returns on Fall Stinger Day

The Hillsdale Commons was transformed into a community café called Buzzworthy Brews on Nov. 17. The café is a student-run project of Caleb Paull’s entrepreneurship class. The students served their classmates and faculty on the Hillsdale Campus with coffee, hot chocolate, and baked goods while they admired artwork made by Lotspeich students.

The pop-up day for Buzzworthy Brews coincided with a Stinger Day. Students decorated cupcakes, made friendship bracelets, wrote notes of gratitude to teachers, and decked themselves out in their class colors while preparing for the dodgeball and cheering competition. The senior class won the student dodgeball tournament and then defeated the teachers in the final round.
