It’s not paranormal. It’s just ‘Friday Afternoon Lights.”

Staff Reports , Staff Reporter

Some Friday afternoon students and instructors got a surprise, at least on the third floor of the Mesa Building on Aug. 25 during the first week of school. First, the hallway lights went out. Then the classroom lights went out. Soon after, the classroom lights came back on but the hallway stayed dark. The mystery was solved when one instructor explained that the staff offices will be closing early on Friday which was the same as the summer schedule. It is partly so that students can go to offices Monday through Thursday before and after work.

The University offices will be open:

  • Monday through Thursday, from 7:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. with a 60-minute lunch period.
  • Friday from 8 a.m. until noon.

This schedule was previously announced to the UTPB Community in an email, but still, the lights being switched on and off was a bit unexpected for some.
