“Unbelievable,” Bemoans Student After Class Doesn’t End Early
TORONTO - The University of Toronto campus is once again bursting with activity. With the highly anticipated return to in-person classes also comes the 10-minute stampede following the end of an hour mark. John Glavine, a second-year, is still adjusting to the in-person shuffle and spoke to The Boundary about his struggles. “Before, you could easily just switch to your next lecture. Now, it’s a whole new ball game. I have to walk, like, seven minutes to get from Vic to Con Hall.”
Glavine’s ire doesn’t stop at long travel times. “Oh the profs, don’t even get me started,” he said, shaking his head. “The other day, in my Introduction to International Relations course, the prof actually used all of the class time. No early dismissal? Unbelievable.” He proceeded on a twenty-five-minute tirade, railing against the perceived “unfairness” he and other students face when walking between classes. “Why is there no shuttle service? Why aren’t classes only a half hour?” Glavine stated that he intends to stage a weekly protest, in between classes, outside Sidney Smith to let faculty know his views.
