No Common Hour Exams for 300 level and Higher Courses
I propose that 300 level and higher classes should no longer have Common hour exams. I am involved in many organizations on campus and I can't tell you how many times I have had to miss a professional event that would have greatly benefited me and increased our schools reputation just because I had a test scheduled for that night.
I believe that when a student is at the point of taking 300 level classes, they should not only be focusing on schoolwork but also creating a professional life outside of classes. Having multiple common hour exams every other week limits a students ability to do this tremendously.
I understand at this point some classes are still large and common hour exams are held to prevent cheating, but at this level of classes I believe we should be considered responsible enough that this shouldn't be an issue. Also holding common hour exams seems pointless when the majority of classes give the next day off anyway.
