Wake up, you sleepyhead
For this Quick and Dirty, we asked some of our Opinion writers for their thoughts on the new master class schedule. The Editorial Board shared their thoughts in the paper today:
Alex Collazo, Columnist: 8:40 classes are a crime. Friday classes are a crime against humanity. It’s time for PrezBo to face justice in the Hague.
Jim Pagels, Blogger: Classes already start at 9. Is 20 minutes really that big a deal? Props to CU administration for finding a relatively painless solution to a serious space problem.
Noel Duan, Columnist: Since I usually arrive 20 minutes early to my 9:00 a.m. class anyway, I guess I’ll have to arrive at 8:20 a.m. from now on to remain the sycophant that I am.
Caroline Blosser, Blogger: I don’t want to point any fingers, but it sounds like the Early-Morning-Breakfast-and-Coffee-To-Go Lobby (EMBCTGLob) might be behind all this…
Derek Turner, Blogger: Even though I won’t be here, I’m still outraged. This is a prime example of how the students are suffering because of administrative decisions to keep expanding class sizes. They act like they’re doing us a favor by freeing up classrooms, when in fact the problem was created by the University’s compulsion to grow class sizes for financial reasons.
Esfandyar Batmanghelidj, Canon Contributor: There is a simple solution to all this fuss. For classes to start half an hour earlier, homework must also end half an hour earlier!
Emily Tamkin, Blogger: I was excited that this early start time wouldn’t apply to seniors, but then I realized that I’ll be expected to get up even earlier for the class called life.
