The best time for class is really never, but that unfortunately is not reality for college students. There are different groups of thought when picking classes; some think to start early and finish early, while others prefer the nightshift. The best class period is 11 a.m.–12:15 p.m. Eleven a.m. affords the opportunity of being able to procrastinate the night before and still get a well-rested night sleep. Another benefit of an 11 a.m. class is avoiding the morning rush of traffic and leaving before the rush hour returns.
The best aspect of this class period is that it does not destroy a day, unlike an 8 a.m. class that kicks anyone in the gut to start the morning or a 3:30 p.m. class that gives the pleasure of arriving to a commuter campus with rush hour and leaving with it as well. The entire day is still ahead when class finishes at 12:15 p.m., which is so crucial in students’ hectic schedule.
A great aspect of picking classes is the control; before selecting “register for classes,” anyone can see when it starts and what building it’s in. Register in April for an 8 a.m. class that begins in August and the fall semester could get off to a rough start. The reality is that the 11 a.m. class period was tailor made for students, the class anyone can procrastinate and still sleep in for. When it’s time for the next login to UCD Access to register for classes, make sure to take an 11 a.m. class.
