Molly O’Driscoll, Sophomore

Do you drink any form of caffeine throughout the day?

Yes, I drink coffee.

Where do you get it from?

If it’s from my home, it’s usually just Nantucket blend from a Keurig. If it is from Dunkin’ Donuts, it’s usually just a regular iced coffee. If it’s from Starbucks, it is usually a caramel macchiato.

Do you think it helps your performance in school?

Definitely. It definitely keeps me awake, because there are some days where you just don’t want to get up, and you just don’t want to do anything, so coffee definitely helps with that.

How much coffee do you consume throughout the day?

Usually a cup or two.

Sam Goldstone, Freshman

Do you drink caffeine on a regular basis?

No, because caffeine is really bad for your heart, very addictive like a drug, and just bad for you medically. I don’t need it because I’m already a very energetic person.

Amanda Cosenza

Do you drink any form of caffeine throughout the day?

Yes, I drink a very small 150 mL cup of coffee.

School coffee in the cafeteria.

How much coffee do you consume a day?

I only have one cup every morning, Monday through Friday, and I do not consume it on the weekends.

Do you think it helps you throughout the day?

Yes, because I wake up extremely early to drive here from where I live, and that is why I only drink it Monday through Friday.

 

Jack Cappellucci, Senior

Do you drink any form of caffeine throughout the day?

Sometimes I have an iced tea or soda or something like that, but not often.

Do you drink coffee?

I’ve never had coffee. When I was a kid my parents told me it would stunt my growth, which now I know is not true, but that’s why I didn’t drink it as a kid. I see a lot of people that are dependent on it, and I never want to be one of those people.

Do you wish you drank coffee?

No, I feel that I’m fine without drinking coffee. I’ve found that if I eat right, and keep myself energized then I will be fine.

 

Josh Goodman, Senior

Do you drink any form of caffeine throughout the day?

Every now and then I will get a coffee.

Dunkin’ Donuts.

About a medium coffee per week.

Do you think it helps your performance in school?

No, it probably lowers it, but I don’t care because it tastes good.
