Twitter Poll: How did your first day of classes go?

(Infographic by Kaylie McLaughlin | Collegian Media Group)

For 24 hours, a Twitter poll asked students how their first day of classes went.

Of the 89 respondents, more than 47 percent said they hadn’t even been on campus yet when they participated. However, more than 23 percent said their first day of classes were great and indicated they were “glad to be back.”

About 16 percent said their day wasn’t going great, and nearly 14 percent said their day had been “pretty OK.”
