Default Spring Break Closing

Is anyone else annoyed that dorms close at 7:00 on Friday? If you don't live relatively close, chances are you are going to have to miss classes to travel. I don't understand why dorms couldn't stay open until Saturday (well, I'm sure there is a reason but it's inconvenient) or why classes couldn't just be canceled. The former would've been a more viable option. It just puts people that live far away in an awkward predicament and it doesn't seem like there was much thought put into that fact.

Yeah, I know it is annoying. Though I don't have classes on Friday, I have work and I have to skip a day of work in order to travel to southern VA. It'd be a lot better for everyone to close the dorms on Saturday, but they assume around here that everyone's from the tri-state area.

Yep, I agree. They could at least give everyone until noon on Saturday. I'm stuck missing classes on Friday to travel back to North Carolina, there's no other option for me since leaving after 2:20 puts me on a train getting home past midnight - and as an out-of-state student I don't have a car to get myself to the airport at my own convenience. It's fucking annoying to have to sacrifice my academics, which is why I've wasted my money on this school in the first place, just to get home before the dorms close.

I hate to steal this from kanye but Drew University doesn't care about students

It's true, but they've taken enough of our money they could at least pretend to give a shit.
