For about 15 years or so, the only schedule I had to always remember was during the hours of 8 a.m. or 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. or 3 p.m. That constant cycle of six hours of elementary and high school has been programmed to my brain for such a long time, that I wouldn’t have thought it would be any different by the time I reached college. Once I turned 17 and enrolled at Sacred Heart, everything changed. Classes came at so many different times that I had to get accustomed to focusing on which one would work well based on my personal preference. Also, since I had started working an actual job by the time I reached college, it was all about catering to their needs more than it was to cater to my own. One of the results of catering to them was to pick classes that were later in the day to help them during the morning due to a lack of staff, which is why I choose evening classes.
During my experience over the last four years, I’ve come to realize that evening classes perhaps were a bit better than morning ones. This is because I would have much more time to do what I wanted to do in the day such as working, going to the gym, hanging out with friends and just be much more productive. While those evening classes can be dragging due to the fact that you can’t do the things that you want to during the evening, it’s still a change that I had to become accustomed to. I don’t recommend anyone reading this to pick 8 a.m. classes next semester because you want the entire day to yourself. I recommend everyone to just choose what you like best and makes you happy because of a certain class. Take what you want to take. Everyone is different, but having an evening class is something that I feel would be a good recommendation if you wish to have a bit more liberty during the beginning and start of your day.
