Morning classes or Night classes?

Early morning classes, a student’s worst nightmare, at least for a majority of us. When choosing classes, especially when it comes down to our final couple semesters the options of what times you can take a class can be limited. Either because the course or courses one needs being offered are limited, coordinating with your work schedule and for many the distance they travel to get here.

For some having a morning class is a great way to be done early and have the afternoons for homework or hang-out with friends, leaving their evenings free. Although I’m going out on the limb, I’d say a vast majority would prefer to take classes no earlier than 8:30am; but maybe that is just my opinion. How it used to be when we were young.

I often think back at how when growing up I couldn’t wait to be older and move on from elementary school. Now I feel the opposite, the days of recess and getting out of school at 2:30 or 3:00pm are gone and missed. Instead there are the early mornings, late nights of studying and for many trying to squeeze in a part-time job while going to school full-time. Not to mention finding time for family and friends.

So if one had to choose, would it be taking an early morning class at 7am or a later class around 8:30 or 9am? The sacrifices we all must make to attend college and further our education. Just know that once you’re finished it will be worth it and working full-time is a lot easier than going to school. I’ve done both and working full-time is much easier. But you need a certificate or degree to get the right job, don’t settle for just anything.

Until next time!
