Coffee and caffeinated beverages are a staple in many college students’ daily routine. The Waynesburg University Student Activity Board hosted the first Coffee House of the fall 2021 semester, providing a relaxing environment for students to work on classwork while sipping coffee.
Free iced and hot coffee were provided to the students free of charge by the SAB. Along with the coffee, free cookies and supplies to make hot tea were available.
Eve O’Sullivan, a frequent attender of the SAB Coffee House, said the event always provides a good atmosphere to get work done.
“Coffee House is a great time to get work done in a more relaxed setting,” O’Sullivan said. “It always helps me be productive in a less stressful way.”
After signing in to Coffee House, students were given a ticket to hold onto until the end of the night. At the end of the event, students were able to turn the ticket back in to an SAB member in exchange for a free coffee mug.
Live music was provided by local singer Matt Sky, a former contestant on “The Voice.” He was on season five and was a part of Team Adam.
According to Sky’s website, he originated from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania before relocating to Los Angeles, California.
“Originally from Philadelphia,” the website states, “he moved to Los Angeles in 2015, where he’s written and self-produced music that blends modern and retro sounds. His lyrics are relevant and clever, and his melodies are timeless.”
Being able to perform for the college crowd at the coffee house was important for Sky.
“Thank you so much for having me at the Coffee House,” Sky said. “It’s been over a year now since I’ve gotten to play live at colleges, and it’s really nice to come out. Great turn out tonight. It was really nice to just play for people, meet new people and get back to it… hopefully I’ll see you again soon.”
