It looks like that time of the year has finally come, when the 9am start is just too much for most SoC students and lecture attendance starts to drop off sharply. This mornings SY21 lecture was a prime example with what was a full lecture theatre at the start of term having more empty seats in it than full ones. This is rather worrying considering we are only half way through the term and in many modules the most challenging content is yet to come.

The plus side to all of this is that walking around on campus and in buildings is that much easier as less students means less of a crush, so if you fancied waking up 5 minutes later but didn’t because of the amount of time taken to traverse red route in the mornings, you may in fact be able to get those precious few extra minutes in bed now ;)
