Remember those 8 a.m. classes?

Community columnist Jeff Kern wrote one of the columns on Monday's Focus on Excessive Drinking Views page and it's created quite a buzz.

Should there be more 8 a.m. classes at Penn State?

Everyone seems to have an opinion, and you can see the online discussion with the column.

Me? Like many alums, I took my share of 8 a.m. classes and yes, I survived. I even remember 8 a.m. Saturday class one fall semester, cramping my style in attending tailgates. But I went to the class while others slept.

As many point out, jobs start at 8 a.m. or before so a real world experience wouldn't be a bad thing in college. Would it? 

Thanks to Kern and other writers for another great package Monday.
