Help me understand… why two am?
August 11, 2011
There were a series of presentations today on student services and I noticed the same phrase being used over and over. And it’s a phrase I’ve heard in other meetings.
Students do things on their own, on the computer at 2 am.
I’m not shocked about the concept of students logging in and checking grades or planning classes or using any number of student systems. I even get that they do it at odd hours. But every single time this concept is brought up the time they mention is two. Why not midnight or 1 am?
According to Karen they actually get emails from students time stamped at 2 and that’s where it comes from.
But it still seems strange to me. Maybe because I am immune to the zeitgeist of 2 am.
And I must say that I’m okay with missing out on this phenomena.
