It’s late arrival. You saunter to class late as usual, claiming that your bus ran behind schedule. Sheepishly, you hide your pumpkin spice latte behind your back and scurry to your seat. For the next ten minutes, many of your peers mumble similar excuses.

We may save an hour of sleep on late arrival mornings, but we often sacrifice a productive school day. The current arrangement fosters frustration. There should be a more efficient alternative.
