Over 30 Required Class Exemption? I Think So
I’ve made no effort to hide that I’m a back to school parent. In fact I’m proud to say that I’m a mere three credit hours away from graduating with my first Associates degree. I think that is rather impressive considering it’s only taken me 12 years to get that degree. I do have one issue however.
Of those three credit hours, one of them MUST be a Wellness class. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for being healthy, getting exercise and striving for a more active lifestyle; but to REQUIRE that a back-to-school adult take one of these classes I find it to be a little ridiculous. I’m mean, really. I think if you’re a student that is over 30, you should be exempt from having to take a Wellness class…. either that or offer classes in the evenings so I have options with regards to my potential work schedule.
I was thinking about taking bowling for my wellness credit, until I realized that all the classes were offered at 10:30 in the morning or 1:30 in the afternoon. How can I possibly clear that with a potential employer? I can’t, that’s how. It’s very aggravating to have to try to fit this type of class into a schedule that is already full up with home life, married life and parenting.
Yes, perhaps I’m just on a whine train here and I should be happy that I’m able to take these courses and get a degree… If I had known I was going to need this wellness credit to graduate I would have taken a fitness class when I went to college the first time.
