Clocks to be adjusted for Daylight Saving Time

March 10 change requires the personal touch

Every clock on campus, including this one in Loretto Hall, will be adjusted on March 10 as most of Indiana switches to Daylight Saving Time.

When the time changes (spring forward, remember?) at 2 a.m. on March 10 and most of Indiana goes back to Daylight Saving Time, that will mean dark mornings but later light in the afternoons and evenings.

It also means the school’s more than 100 clocks have to be changed. But unlike most of the clocks at your house that have to be adjusted individually, every clock on campus can be changed at once.

According to Chief Information Officer Mr. Rolly Landeros, the time change has to be entered into the school’s master control clock manually, and when this happens, all the clocks on campus will be updated. In an email, Landeros wrote, “Unfortunately, (the change) cannot be done remotely or through a computer. It must be done at the master control console.”

That means either Landeros or Vice Principal Mr. Jere Kubuske will have to make a trip to campus on March 10 to make this change, but Landeros said that all the clocks on campus will be correct when students, faculty and staff arrive on the morning of March 11, perhaps even more bleary than usual after they lose an hour of sleep over the weekend.
