Members of Dynamic PR, Stevenson's public relations club, teamed up with the "Faculty in the Halls" initiative to serve free coffee, donuts and juice to the residents in the three first-year residence halls, Western Run, Patapsco, and Susquehanna, on Monday, Dec. 8, at the start of finals week. Students woke up to the scent of Dunkin Donuts coffee and delicious Munchkins to start them off on their first finals week.
