Default Why is Drew A Ghosttown Saturday and Sunday Mornings?

In what alternate universe is it ever a good idea to open at 1:30 on the weekends? Yes, a lot of kids do sleep until then... but what about the large number of other students (myself included) who don't... Whose brilliant idea was it to open the commons at 1:30? Or to have the McLendon convienience store open 6 days a week starting at 4?? A lot of schools have their convenience stores open from 7am to 4 am every day! (that is seven days a week for the guy whose idea it was to open the commons at 1:30)

In sum, it's really good that you at Drew have tried to be "hip" and "cool" and adapt your schedules to fit those of your students, but we are not ALL like that, please, oh please open something, (the UC, the commons, the convenience store) some way of getting food and/or other edible materials before 1:30!

I don't know where you got your information from, but the Commons opens at 11:30 on weekends. It's still a little late, but not entirely unreasonable.

I think the commons closes around 1:30 for brunch on Saturdays and Sundays -- not opens. The snack bar opens sometime after that.

But Still - I had a class that started at 9:00 on Saturday - I ended up having to go into town to get breakfast - which I meant I lost an hour of prime prep/study time before class! I know that Saturday classes are not the norm - but what are students that want to get an early start to their day - without needing to leave campus - supposed to do for breakfast ????

I am diabetic, so when I was a student, I made sure to have cereal and milk in my room in case I was hungry for breakfast on the weekends. I would recommend filling out a comment card so that they are aware of the interest in weekend breakfast options, and get as many other people as you can to do the same. They might open the snack bar, since opening the commons would involve changing the whole meal points scheme. Keep in mind that they can only open if there are enough people giving them money to make it worthwhile.
