Summary

This study attempted to assess use of the campus "free hour" (Tuesday, 12-1) inaugurated in the fall 1974 semester. During the "free hour," classes were not scheduled so that various campus clubs, committees, and special presentations could be scheduled without conflicting with classes. A brief questionnaire was sent to members of the day faculty; 145 faculty members, about 40 percent of the total, responded. Thirty-eight (26 percent) of the respondents indicated that they had participated in some way during the semester. The most common activities listed were meetings--departmental, committee, staff, and administrative. Fifteen faculty members indicated that they had sponsored club or other student activities. A question asking whether or not the respondent favored discontinuing the free hour evoked some strong statements on both sides of the question. "Yes" responses outnumbered "No" responses by more than two to one. The major objection to the free hour was clearly the scheduling of classes beginning at 7:45 a.m. with resulting student tardiness, loss of instruction time, and lowered enrollments. Of those supporting the free hour, many felt that it had not been given an adequate test, that the time of day was not the best, and that it was not given enough publicity. It was recommended that the "free hour" be re-evaluated at the close of fall 1975. (Author/AH)
