Pam Richter – Class of 2011
Nov. 5, 2009
Sitting in class for an hour and forty minutes on Tuesdays and Thursdays may seem like a daunting task for some students. What many students may not realize is that class times weren’t always this long.
In the fall of 1994, Elon College changed from a three-hour credit system to a four-hour credit system after the faculty voted on the change in April 1993. This change was in conjunction with the new General Studies program that was taking place at the time. Some educational departments were forced to rework their entire curriculum, where as others weren’t as drastically impacted by the change.
