Current academic calendar only provides students will a 2 day break, 80% into fall semester
Purpose: to implement a fall break the first Thursday and Friday of October
Students would increase productivity if given the opportunity to catch up after the first round of midterms
The academic calendar will extend 2 days more into December
Status: Committed to student affairs
Thoughts: why not add more days to Thanksgiving Break so that out of state student get more of an opportunity to spend time with their family, but the argument is not to add more days off, but rather to add “productivity”
It really will not increase productivity because of TX/OU weekend...it will just start the party sooner.
The idea is that it would be a break after the first round of midterms
