A note on the CUNY Calendar: I do not practice the CUNY “Friday is a Monday schedule.” I have three other jobs and my own student duties, so I do not have the flexibility to just swap days. I assume that you also have responsibilities outside of my classroom and cannot just pretend that one day is *actually* another day. The calendar reflects this practice, but this may not be the same for other classes you take at CUNY.
