College denies tracking menstrual cycles to put stop to excuses

Taiyuan University of Science and Technology in Shanxi Province have denied that it attempted to keep track of its students' menstrual cycles.

Earlier this week, a female student post a Weibo that had been asked to record the dates of their time of the month after too many students had been using "period" as an excuse for getting out of mandatory morning jogs.

While one female student was reportedly assigned to keep track of her menstrual cycle and reject any excuses that did not line up with the timetable which each student allowed a maximum of 10 days off per month because of their period.

Soon the university declares that the student in charge of the daily runs had come up with the idea of a menstrual cycle register on her own with no orders from school officials. While admitting that the student's method was a bit extreme, the school applauded the industrious menstrual monitor for her good intentions of getting more students to regularly exercise.

The university also added that many of its students were strongly in favor of the mandatory morning jogs, something that netizens found even less believable than the school knowing nothing about the menstrual registry.

Different people have different views about morning jogs. However, in the absence of effective and diversified exercises, many colleges and universities are implementing a unified morning running method to improve students' physical quality.

Although the original intention is good, but, due to individual interest and hobby, personal time arrangement and the difference between work and rest habits, many students don't "buy" unified running in the morning. The resulting conflicts between students and schools occur repeatedly, and can hardly mobilize more students to join the morning jog.
