Cougar Catnip: Block schedule is NOT ideal!


Belen Hibbler

It’s nice only having three classes a day, but this new schedule doesn’t comply with my social needs. Block periods are 100 minutes while regular periods are 54 minutes. This makes sense because the whole point of this schedule is to lengthen the periods. With that being said you’d think that breaks would also be lengthened, well they aren’t! Nutrition stays the same at 15 minutes, and lunch is cut short by 10 whole minutes. It was 40 minutes, now it’s 30. This takes away from socializing time which is heavily needed especially when our periods are so long!!! Ugh.
