During finals week, CDS provides "snake kits" to students. These kits are made by each student from a buffet style table consisting of appetizers, fruit, cookies, nachos, chips, candy and everything else to get students through a hard night of studying.
In addition, CDS offers Midnight Madness one night during finals weeks at the end of terms. On this night, Chandler Café is opened to the students at midnight and provides breakfast fare. In the past, the president of Caltech has even cooked omelets and served students!
