A very common debate that comes up, especially during college is whether or not 8 am classes make students concentrate better or worse.
Since this semester is my first time taking an 8 am class, I find this topic interesting. I have heard different opinions and thoughts from students, some say that it helps them concentrate better; however, many others (including me) think that it is harder to concentrate.
Personally, I find an 8 am class to be harder to pay attention to. This might be because I am not an “early bird” and I cannot stop thinking about taking a nap. However, when I look around the room, I can see some people really engaged in the class while others are half asleep.
I know this question has been asked a million times, so there is a lot of different sources out there that it becomes overwhelming. Something I find interesting is that most of us, started at 8 am every weekday during high school. When we get to college, most of us, tend to push classes towards later times. Why is this? Is this something most people do? or is it the other way around?
I would like to spark up a small conversation and see what you guys think about early classes, to gain more information on this topic.
