Algonquin College to run classes until 10 pm

March 9, 2009

Starting this fall, full-time programs at Algonquin College will be expanded to 10 pm Monday through Thursday and to 6 pm on Friday at its Woodroffe campus in Ottawa. The college decided to extend class hours in order to address increased demand and limited space. The move comes as a surprise to the leader of Algonquin's faculty union, which has grieved the decision. The student union's president says some students are already concerned about the plan, raising issues about safety and availability of services at night. Ottawa Citizen
