Move the FoR paper due time to midnight

Admit Weekend this year begins on Wednesday, April 23rd and does not end until Sunday, April 27th. The first Fate of Reason IHUM paper is due Monday, April 28th. Though the FoR team was kind enough to move the time due from 9am to 4pm, most of us have class all day on Monday and will not be much helped by this extension. Even those of us not personally hosting ProFros over Admit Weekend will be seriously effected by the addition of 20-120 students in our living space. It is not unreasonable to assume that we will all have great difficulty getting any work done on our papers over Admit Weekend. As a result, we ask that the online copy of the paper be due at 11:59 p.m. on Monday, April 28th, instead of at 4 p.m., so that those of us with class all day can at least have that evening -- when there will be no more ProFros -- to complete our papers. For those TFs who require hard copy submissions, we ask that those hard copies be due Tuesday morning since the mailboxes will not be accessible at 11:59 on Monday night. Please sign your full name so that our TFs know that the people signing this petition are actually FoR students.

    7 years ago Comments: Please do not overlook the difficulty we face on the grounds that we have overscheduled ourselves and must face the consequences. Those who applied to be HoHos did so last quarter, long before we knew what classes we would take or how responsibilities would fall. Additionally, many of us face midterms on the same day that the paper is due and will be frantically preparing, precluding working to our full potential on either the paper or the exam. Although the 4 pm deadline extension is considerate, it will unfortunately do little to help those of us who will be sitting an exam or in class during the added period.
