North Lake College Is Testing Out Midnight Courses This Summer.
Here's a fun fact: A full 71 percent of all American undergraduate college students hold down a job, and one in five of those students work 35 or more hours per week at said gig.
So maybe this announcement is just a long time coming then: This month, the Dallas County Community College District's North Lake College campus in Irving is introducing a pilot program in which students can sign up for and attend courses that start at right around midnight — or, OK, 11:30 p.m., which is close enough — presuming they can't make standard weekday or weeknight classes already offered by the school.
For this first semester of this late-night course program, the college is offering three classes based on student demand: a GED preparation class; an Android App Development class for beginner geeks; and a warehouse management and inventory class using Excel functions and formulas.
Should demand exist, the school hopes to expand its catalog of midnight classes for the fall semester. Registration for the summer semester, coincidentally, is still underway.
In any case, staying up all afternoon to cram for exams kinda has a nice ring to it, doesn't it?
