Xpress Yourself: Daylight Savings

Students share what they’ll do with the extra hour of sunlight from daylight savings

March 13, 2022

Daylight savings comes around twice a year in the United States. The clock either moves forward an hour, or back one. But what that means for students at SF State is either losing an hour of sleep and sunshine, or gaining one. On March 13, the clocks will be moving forward an hour and San Franciscans will be gaining an hour of daylight.

Staff at Golden Gate Xpress asked SF State students what theyre doing with the extra hour of sunshine.
