Bagel Wednesday

The first Wednesday of every month is a fan favorite here at Holy Cross, attracting long lines and hungry students. As a second-semester senior, I can attest that Bagel Wednesdays are the perfect treat and time to chat with friends over delicious bagels! Hosted at the Campion house, bagels begin at 9:30 am until they run out!

The Chaplain’s Office members and HC Student Wellness staff are available to chat and converse with students over breakfast! The feeling of entering the Campion House is welcoming and feels like home. Having warming faces and smiles greet you upon entering the doors is a feeling I will cherish as I approach graduation. Last semester, I remembered running out of my 9 am 50 min class to arrive at Bagel Wednesday before the lines formed! My friends and I would then run to the toaster to secure a spot for our everything, asiago, and gluten-free bagels! In between classes and our busy schedules, it can be difficult to find times for friends to meet up for breakfast. However, since Bagel Wednesday is only once a month, it is the perfect excuse to schedule a meet-up!

This past Wednesday before the break (3/1), the house prepared students for spring break, offering sunscreen and other travel essentials! On the way out, I grabbed a travel-size sunscreen and eye mask for long plane or train rides. Having resources such as the Chaplains and student wellness staff on campus allow students a safe space and opportunity to connect with community members.

The atmosphere is allergen-friendly, offering gluten-free bagels and vegan cream cheese alternatives! Also, separate toasters are available. Bagel flavors range everything from sesame to asiago to plain to everything! Not a cream cheese fan? Butter is also offered, and it is my personal preference.

In need of caffeine? Bagel Wednesday also offers fair trade coffee; just don’t forget your mug! If you missed out on the last bagel break, don’t worry, they happen monthly.
