when i was in school there 20+ years ago, the dorms would practically clear out on weekends. never could understand that, but i guess times haven't changed much. my own nephew spends more weekends away from campus than he does there. but i had a lot of fun staying in town for the weekend and went home very infrequently -- mostly holidays.

Similar situation for me. I wanted to get away and break the Tech/Angelo traditions of my school. I went to SWT because it was known as a party school... little did i know i would actually come out with a good education...

Yeah, I came with a gf and there was a steady digression. At first I would load up and leave thursday night and stay till sunday night. Soon, I would leave Friday nights and come back Sunday morning. By 2nd semester fresh year I was just hitting up the ole hometown strange every other holiday.

What will kill attendance the most this year is the fact that most classes will be M-W or T-Th. Starting in Fall there will be very few Friday classes. This was set up so that Friday's could be used for Faculty meetings, student group meetings and the like. However it will just lead to students being on campus Monday through Thursday and getting a head start on the weekend, which means fewer around for the games on Saturday.

thanks to myspace, facebook, cell phones etc its a whole lot easier to keep in touch with your old friends these days, people dont graduate highschool and grow apart and see each other on holidays and during the summer anymore.

i suppose MW and TTH classes work fine if you want to be (or are) a commuter school. but it's a bad idea if you want to a truly residential school where students stay engaged with the campus. of course, i did everything i could to avoid scheduling friday classes anyway when i was in school. but i stayed in SM for my three-day weekend.

Yeah I think that a LOT of these new Freshmen will be going home for labor day. If you would see how badly they are molly-coddled bye their parents, you begin to wonder how long they will make it at school here. I don't know if it's just me or does this Freshamn class (the Rising STARS of 2011, lol) seem a lot more juvenille.

Blah.

Freshmen were like that when I started in '98 too, though.
