That shit happens all the time at my university too. It sucks when they're the long classes too, like 3 classes that are 3 hour lectures a piece. You're literally stuck in a classroom for 9 bloody hours minus the 5 minutes you get to rush across campus.
That's when you start bringing pillows and food and shit with you in your bag. muck textbooks, munchies take precedence.
That is why I loved it when I changed majors. The professors who taught CS had the same philosophy as the students. They didn't want to teach classes before noon or teach on Mondays or Fridays any more than the students in their classes, so they didn't
I had a full year where I had 4 day weekends every weekend. For the most part, I had maybe 1 course which had an 11-12 lecture twice a week (with a 2 or 3 hour recitation in the afternoon once a week). Otherwise I typically had 10 minutes between classes from 1 to 6 Tuesday-Thursday, with maybe 1 or 2 oddball classes with had a Monday lecture/lab/recitation. There was only one professor who liked an early class, but he was really math professor, not from the CS department (although his class was a required class). Most CS majors as a result hated his class (me included). It might also have been his teaching style, with random tests, usually with a 5 minute time limit (which was insane). If you didn't immediately know how to solve the problem using every short-cut method that existed, you were screwed, and he didn't give partial credit for your work, you either had the work with the correct answer, or you had a zero. And as I said, he loved doing that the second his class started to catch anyone who was late because there was no way in hell you could solve the questions if you had even less time (especially since he liked giving the question verbally for which you had to write it down as he said it and if you were not there, well, you didn't know the question even at times, sometimes he would write out some of the numbers equation on a projector so he didn't have to verbally say all of it, but there was almost never enough info there to know what he wanted you to do with it if you missed his verbal component). Man, I really hated that guy, but he certainly did push you to do more/work harder....
Why am I getting lectured about Final Fantasy? Eat shit how about that.
