BATON ROUGE, La. (LOCAL 33)( FOX 44) – It’s a sound no LSU student wants to hear at nine in the morning and certainly not on a Saturday. But today some students didn’t have a choice.
Cara Ramos, an LSU sophomore, said she wasn’t exactly thrilled about having to come to class today.
“We just kept going through our lecture notes and on to the next chapter just like a normal day,” Ramos says.
Ramos is one of several LSU students that had to come to a 9:30 class today. She says she wasn’t too surprised when LSU added two extra days to the calendar after the school closed for the national championship game two weeks ago.
“I mean it’s not the best things that’s happened to me all week,” Ramos said. “I’m more relaxed now that we don’t have to cram a lot into that class.”
This Saturday was the first of two that students have to make up. The university chose these days to make sure the minimum number of required class days met the school’s standards and keep kids from missing out on the other breaks ahead.
“The stem stuff, they’d be like..We need more time.”
But instead of dwelling on chemistry homework, Ramos and her friends decided to make the best of it.
” It gave me the opportunity to paint and hang out with my friends so I’m excited.”
