Students at the University of Iowa who party all night Thursday won’t be sleeping all day Friday anymore. At least not if the university has its way.
The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences has decided to pay departments for switching classes to Friday, reports the Iowa City Press-Citizen. Departments that move at least two classes to Friday will get $20 for each student who enrolls in a switched class.
The incentive program is designed to cut down on the number of students who load up on classes earlier in the week and then get loaded on Thursday night, the Press-Citizen reported.
Has the university hit on a way to curb “Thirsty Thursdays” or just a recipe for empty classes? —Elyse Ashburn
