Now listen to two students discussing the article.
Interesting isn't it?
I wish they'd made this change two years ago, when we got here.
The program's going to be much more attractive this way... to lots more people.
It's a question of choice.
See, not everyone likes the same things. The way it used to be, if,
like, you didn't like sleeping in a tent, well you just
didn't participate. Lots of people didn't.
That's true. I didn't go on the camping trip my first year-
hiking and camping isn't my thing-
but you know I did feel I missed out on something.
Right.Plus, the other reason this is going to work
is that you don't have to give up your whole weekend anymore.
There are other things people need to do their first few days...you know, like buy their books, set up their rooms,
prepare for the first day of classes, that kind of thing.
The big time commitment used to get in the way.
