These should be listed alphabetically. No one is looking for a specific time. People are looking for specific programs, which are hidden at the end of the sentences. Bad.

If you're really that concerned about schedules, maybe you should try getting your info from the KU website rather than a short article in the paper.

Why don't you just use 'Ctrl' + 'F' and find the correct program? Quicker than whining.
