Penn State Food Districts Extend Hours During Finals Week

Is there any better way to deal with finals week anxiety, than to stress eat away all of those bad grades? Probably, but they definitely don’t taste as good.

Luckily, Penn State food services have your back on this one. Many of the dining districts around campus have adjusted its hours of operation during this week from hell so you can treat yourself with some of those extra meal points. Here are the adjusted hours, tailored especially for you:

East District at Findlay:

Market East —

open from 7:00 a.m. – 2:00 a.m. Monday (5/1) and Tuesday (5/2)

South Food District:

Redifer City Grill —

open from 7:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. Monday (5/1) through Thursday (5/4)

open from 7:30 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. Friday (5/5)


MacKinnon’s Cafe –

open from 7:30 a.m. until 1 a.m. Monday (5/1) through Wednesday (5/3)

open from 7:30 am to 11:00 pm Thursday (5/4)

open until 2 p.m. Friday (5/5)


Starbucks –

open until 12 a.m. Thursday (5/4)

Hopefully, some of these extended hours will provide you with the energy necessary to power through these next couple of day.
