Heavens! What luxery! Graduate study at night! Throughout my graduate
study, it was extremely hard to get classes even to run during the day.
The only way to keep on track was to arm twist a professor into a
reading course (independent study). Annoyingly, it was usually the least
interesting courses that acually ran. Things like algebraic coding
theory would draw EE students. (Sigh) Thus the graduate math courses
were filled with students from other departments while the math students
were studying with professors browbeaten into submission. Math students
tended to be rather subdued except when hot on the trail of a professor
trying to avoid graduate students. Professors who had a graduate course
canceled were doomed because 3 or 4 students would stake out the
department and trap him. We were also not above conspiring against the
university by enrolling in more courses than we intended to take. During
breaks, math graduate students were highly predatory and capable of
running in packs.
