Conor Wells, a math teacher, says these cancellations have resulted in combining sections and larger classes in the remaining sections. He also stated that some sections had 34 or more students this year. He says that there aren’t enough seats in some sections or students are sitting together. Wells stated “Some students refuse to attend class because they see how full it is.”
