For those of you who did not read or receive the e-mail called “New Lincoln Park Campus Course Schedule Beginning Autumn 2009” I will give you the low down of what you are normally familiar with that is about to change in Autumn Quarter 2009. In my four years at DePaul the course schedule has not changed once until now, which I feel is kind of a big deal for those of you students that are used to the regular set schedule of classes. In the e-mail it says that, “Beginning in autumn quarter of 2009, there will be a new schedule for most courses that meet at the Lincoln Park Campus. The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the College of Communication, and the School of Education will follow the new schedule; the Theatre School and the School of Music will not.”
As a commuter student from Lincoln Park to the loop it was always hard for me to schedule my classes so that I can make the next one on time. For example, if I have a 1:30-3 in Lincoln Park there is no way I can make a 3:10-4:40 in the loop on time, which means I have to eliminate taking a class because of the travel time. The new schedule will create a better alignment with classes that are in the loop so that you can get there on time. I also noticed that most classes will only meet twice a week, which means a lot of students will have Friday’s off! On the front cover The DePaulia there is a whole page dedicated to schedule changes having students shout, “Thank God it’s Thursday!” Check it out. Also night classes will be offered on Fridays now, and most night classes will start at 6-9:15 pm. I will copy the new schedule that they posted in the e-mail to this post so that you can all have a glance at it:
Lastly, I just received another e-mail about new classes that were recently added to the 2008-09 Spring Quarter Course Schedule that may help some of you, those classes are:
-MCS 351 Sec 902 Topics in Television Studies with Dr. Michael DeAngelis is offered on Thursdays from 5:45-9:00PM in the Loop Campus.
-MCS 349 Sec 901 Topics in Film Studies: Latin America Cinemawith Dr. Luisela Amelia Alvaray offered Mondays from 5:30-9:30PM in theLoop Campus.
-AMS 395 Sec 901 American Studies Topics: 1970 American Cinemawith Dr. Jay Beck is offered Wednesdays from 5:45-9:00PM in the LoopCampus.
Hope this post was somewhat useful those of you who will be here next year, and in the spring. Good luck with finals everyone!
