Otter Chatter: How do you feel about daylight-saving time?

“I appreciate I having an extra hour of sleep. I actually like it because it makes me feel like the actual winter and fall is here. I don’t see the practicality and pointlessness of the institution, but I appreciate it makes you feel seasonal.”

Maggie Allen-Young, Senior HCOM major

“I hate the darn thing. Daylight-saving was about farming and what not. We have a lot of farmers and it’s important for them. Ironically, we don’t abide by farming schedules, so I don’t see the point. Honestly, I like it when the sun is out longer. Seasonal depression and lack of motivation due to lack of sunlight is intense”

Mayra Rodriguez, Senior Liberal Studies major

“I used to really like daylight-saving time growing up because the idea of ‘changing time’ was exciting for some reason. I don’t care for it much now because it throws off my sleep and I feel tired earlier during the first two weeks.”

Sebastian Mireles, Junior HCOM major
