Why do so many colleges have two super short breaks in the fall?
It is so difficult for students that are not so local. All 3 of my girls currently in college have a fall break of like 2 school days and a weekend around Columbus Day and then again the Thanksgiving break of Wed to Sunday -- which many of these kids spend two of the entire days travelling at the most costly days I might add. Wouldn't it make more sense to have one break of like a week at Thanksgiving. And this year it is so late that they are all going back for like 10 -12 days and it is winter break!!56 replies
