“I had a student last semester in a remote class ask to take the final exam really early in the morning because he was at a ski resort and didn't want to have to come off the slopes in the middle of the day to take the exam. The entitlement if some of these students is insane - and don't go on a ski trip in the middle of a pandemic! (I teach at a university in Florida and he was an on-campus student, so no way it was a day trip and our county had very high levels of covid and I had multiple students test positive that semester). Ugh! I told him it was inappropriate to even ask me to get up super early and do a whole separate test just for him so he could ski an uninterrupted day.”
