Jedi Mama recently discovered night class. If one is a working adult but also a student, one is familiar with the night classes at the community college or at the university. I've attended night classes at UT as well. One semester, I had an Anthropology class in the bowels of the football stadium. That was fun.
When I was working full time, night classes were my best friend. It seems as if the community college's night classes are 95% adult students (nontrads) and 5% regular students who are only taking the night class because all the day classes in that particular subject were filled and they were left with no alternative. At the university, it seems as if there is a smattering of adult students in the night classes, but the classes are mostly filled with regular students who, again, were left with the night class because all the day classes in the particular subject were filled.
I enjoyed night class. Most of my night classes were more relaxed and it seemed as if my classmates participated more. Of course, it is not fun when you have to compete with the basketball crowd for a parking space or you have to pay to park in a lot you have a parking pass for because of an athletic event. "Blessed are the flexible . . ."
Night classes are a good alternative to the day classes. However, there is one drawback - getting used to the schedule change for me is like getting used to the time changes in the fall and spring. It takes me a while to adjust (sometimes I have a hard time staying awake!).
If you're a night classer, hang in there! Been there, done that, have the bags under my eyes to prove it! Buy a round of Starbucks for your classmates . Stay tuned . . . .
