He is sympathetic to fac-, ulty and students who want smaller classes, but does not see an easy solution to the problem. "It seems that everyone ; wants to go to their classes in the mornings, and take the af-; ternoons off," Romesburg said, j As an example, 1,100 students i attempted to register for one f morning freshman English class. In contrast, many after- noon classes have less than 15 students per class. Romesburg said that he has always been proud that UVCC was able to offer a small class size, but "it is a shame that demand is such that the state, with its limited resources, can- not afford to build enough space for all the students who want to go to school in the i mornings."

Student response has been mixed. Some students feel that the class increase is okay. Teachers have told students that they will be cutting down on papers and tests because of the increase which seems to be all right with most students, but some feel concern that the personal attention they have received in the past will not be there anymore.
