Student government executives have fulfilled one of their campaign promises to students by pushing final exam times from 7 to 7:30 a.m.

Students in the past have had difficulty making their 7 a.m. finals since Transfort buses do not arrive on campus before 7 a.m. The Associated Students of CSU said pushing final times back 30 minutes allows students to arrive on time and relax before their test.

Associated Students of CSU President Cooper Anderson worked out the agreement with Transfort so that buses running this semester will arrive on time for student to make it to their finals before the switch next semester.

“The first (Transfort) arrivals will be at least 15 minutes early,” Anderson said.

The passing periods between final exams will remain 10 minutes long for the spring semester.

With this new finals schedule, students who have morning classes will also have morning finals; the same goes for afternoon classes, according to ASCSU Director of Academics Shadi Barzideh.

Final exams will run until 10:30 p.m. with the new schedule.

“This is a major success for ASCSU by accommodating the transportation needs and time concerns for students during a crucial and stressful time in their academic career,” Anderson said in a press release.

ASCSU officials said this is a major accomplishment but that the organization is still looking for a bigger solution.

“This is a temporary compromise,” Barzideh said.
