Concern for Policy Regarding 24/7 Library Hours

Published by Dipa Barua

Q: This is a comment regarding the policy to stay open 24 hours during the last few weeks of each term. I have strong objections to this policy. I am a master's student in counselling psychology and am very concerned about the impacts to students' mental and physical health when an institution not only condones but encourages staying up all night to study. I see SFU as extremely irresponsible regarding this decision. Many students are young and impressionable and may believe that, if the library stays open all night, they need to stay there all night to study.
