First, I might be a student at COMP...maybe or maybe not. And yes this is my first post...with this name....because at COMP you learn quickly that you don't F with the administration.
This is an FYI to the prospective students.
FYI, today the Dean announced that there will be MANDATORY attendance and a new PROFESSIONAL DRESS CODE. That's right sports fans. Where you attracted by Western's laid back students and promises of Apreso? Well it may all come crashing down. Why? WE DON'T KNOW!
Let's just say that a few students are um, upset, about the announcement. Some of the students like Apreso and came to Western because of the technology that makes learning more dynamic. For those who learn better at higher speed or like to pause lectures to take better notes, Apreso is a better learning experience. The truth is, we don't all learn best by sitting in the classroom and the motivations of the administration to fill that big room every day with well dress students seems less about our learning and more about some kind of school glamour.
So, if you are thinking about going to Western you should know that this may be the policy
. If you are given an opportunity to voice a polite opinion, you may wish to mention that the attendance policy and the dress code are not your favorite things. We certainly NOT asked so you probably wont be either. Had this been the policy a year ago....there are some who would have explored other opportunities.
Thanks for reading
