Not all students like snow days. Just ask Bennett College commuter students who dealt with several snow days this winter.
Kristina Farrar, a sophomore from Richmond Virginia says that this snow has not benefited her at all, especially with classes still going on at Bennett. The snow caused a lack of transportation, making it a struggle to get to class on time or at all.
“With the buses running every hour and not every 30 minutes, it makes it hard for me to get where I need to go.”
Other commuter students such as Angenae Parker, a sophomore from California questioned if she should even attempt to go to class at all.
“It was definitely difficult trying to figure out whether or not to go to class because being out in the cold is not okay with me, especially when I have a long commute just to get to Bennett.”
One student, Loretta Richardson, a sophomore from Washington DC, says that she was unprepared for this snow day.
“The snow has definitely impacted my food source because I didn’t get a chance to make it to the store to stock up on food and there are a minimum of fast food restaurants that are still delivering.”
One Bennett Belle placed snow days into the proper perspective for commuter students.
“Snow days were only fun days in high school,” says Loretta Richardson.
Bennett College cancelled or delayed classes multiple times this winter season due to inclement weather. The college asks students to sign up for the Belle Alert system in order to receive the latest announcements dealing with the campus schedule when inclement weather is forecasted.
