How Have You Been EPPIIC During Covid-19?

Millersville University has a set of core values that every student and faculty members should know. These core values are: Exploration, Professionalism, Public Mission, Inclusion, Integrity, and Compassion (EPPIIC). It is important for students and faculty to remember these values while facing all the uncertainty and chaos of Covid-19.

Housing and Residential Programs wants to showcase students and staff who are out there representing Millersville University’s EPPIIC Values. Anyone who is working or donating their time to help others and normally lives in the residence halls can comment below about how they are being EPPIIC.

The comment needs to include your name and a description of what you are doing and how it fits into Millersville’s EPPIIC Values.

Let’s show how we are being EPPIIC during this difficult time.

Barista Picks My Drink for a School Week

I am a coffee-addict and coffee has become a staple in my everyday routine. But, sometimes I never know what to get, so I resort to buying the same drink every time. So instead of trying new things, I buy a medium , hot or iced depending on my mood, vanilla latte with almond milk. This week I wanted to experiment with one of this season’s trends on Youtube, so I asked the baristas everyday of this week to make me their favorite drink or a random drink and to see what I would be given. These drinks can range from any type meaning they could be a latte, frozen drink, hot chocolate or iced coffee and so on.

This is a fun and different experience that opened me up to trying new drinks and seeing what other people like to drink. So every time I bought coffee during this week, I documented the name of the drink I got and I also took a picture of the drink. I went to the Starbucks on campus and Saxby’s so, I will also say which place the drink is from.

Day 1 – White Chocolate Maple Pecan Latte 

Starting the week off, I went to the Starbucks in McNairy Library. When I ordered the drink, I asked the student worker what her favorite drink was and she said she recently has been getting this drink because the Maple Pecan is a seasonal flavor. My first sip of this drink was interesting. Overall, the drink was delicious and tasted like a french toast hot chocolate. I would definitely recommend trying it.

Day 2 – Raspberry Caramel Macchiato

The next day, I went to Starbucks once again. This time it was a different barista that gave me a drink idea. This time I was recommended to try a caramel macchiato but add in a few pumps of raspberry. This was a unique drink because it tasted like a fruity dessert. I thought it was delicious and it was also a cool experience because the raspberry syrup tints the drink a pink color.

Day 3 – Iced Chai with Almond Milk and a Pump of Caramel

This drink may seem complex ,but it was worth the lengthy order. I went to Saxby’s for this drink. The barista said that she liked this drink a lot and that it was good iced or hot. Once I tried this, I loved it. I usually love chai, so it was a great twist and added an extra nutty taste from the almond milk.

Day 4 – Vanilla Iced Latte with Almond Milk

I thought that it was ironic that the drink that was recommended to me because it just so happens to be my favorite drink to order. I ended up getting this drink from Starbucks. I recommend this drink to anyone because it tastes good hot or iced and has a very unique taste! I was also very excited that our library had the new cup lids that do not need straws.

Day 5 – Marshmallow Mocha

On the last day I went to Saxby’s. I asked the barista to make me her favorite drink. She had to think about that , but then asked another barista what her favorite drink was. The second barista said her favorite drink was a marshmallow mocha. I thought this drink sounded so good and interesting. As soon as I tasted the drink, I loved it! It tastes just like a s’more in my opinion, I would definitely give this one a try .

Overall this has been a very cool experience and I recommend trying it for yourself. My favorite part about doing this experiment was seeing what someone else’s favorite drink was and seeing them get excited about it. If you try any of these drinks, make sure to share it with us on Twitter or Instagram. Our username is @villehousing.

Happy sipping!
