This semester, Questrom changed its start time for evening classes from 6:00pm to 6:30pm. This hasn’t been a popular decision for part-time students. Students (and sometimes professors) were baffled by the decision to change the class start time. Part-time professors thought students wanted it, but students don’t want it at all!
