SMCC planning to start some morning classes earlier

The college aims to provide more options for its increasingly diverse student population and also to help ease traffic congestion on Broadway.

SOUTH PORTLAND — School bells will ring extra early at Southern Maine Community College next semester.

The South Portland school will offer 10 early-morning classes in the spring 2013 semester, with start times of 7 a.m. and 7:30 a.m.

The college says the added flexibility in the schedule is designed to serve two purposes. It will provide more options for the college's increasingly diverse student population, many of whom are working professionals or have family demands.

The change will also help to ease traffic congestion on Broadway, the main South Portland artery to SMCC, during the morning commute.
