(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – This weekend, Mustangs prepare to set their clocks back from daylight savings time. Ending at 2 a.m. on Sunday, November 1, students will be able to thank Benjamin Franklin while enjoying an extra hour of sleep and earlier sunsets in the evenings.
Some households may actually rejoice on Monday morning when their alarm clocks go off an hour later.
“I think the time change is a good thing,” said junior Jared Aker. “I get an extra hour of sleep and I don’t mind that it gets darker later.”
However, there are some who aren’t looking forward to this change.
“I personally have a hard time adjusting to the change,” said freshman Bella Barbalato. “I usually end up sleeping in too much. Plus I can’t go for a run with my dog at night like I usually do because it gets too dark too early.”
Regardless of one’s opinion on the time change, be sure to set clocks forward.
