Study in the Wee Hours at that All-Night Café

Study in the Wee Hours at that All-Night Café

I happened to drive by a college library in Philadelphia the other night at about 1:00 A.M. And guess what? The place was packed with students. I could see them hunched over reading in almost every window. But hey, this is finals week. Kids are supposed to be burning the late night oil, right?

The next day, I visited that college’s website and found out that, sure enough, its library is open 24 hours a day during finals week.

That made me think about StraighterLine – about the fact that staying open 24/7 is nothing unusual for the kind of iCollege that we have become. Whether you want to study at 4:00 A.M. or 4:00 P.M., that’s up to you. If you’re a soldier stationed halfway around the world and you want to log some class time when you are done for the day, that’s no problem either. If you work unusual hours and need to study at midnight, that’s okay too.

The open-all-night nature of distance learning courses is just one of the great things about it. The hours when you are ready to learn are the right hours for us to be open – and we are.
