Dear People that write the student calendar for my university:
Hello. I have been privileged to attend your lovely university for the past 2 1/2 years. As someone halfway through her junior year, I feel like I am fairly knowledgeable about the way things in the university work, which is why the calendar puzzles me so.
In what universe does it make sense for us to go back to school on a Thursday, attend our regularly scheduled Monday classes and then go to our regular Friday classes on Friday (which, chances are, are the same as our Monday classes, thanks to MWF scheduling)?
The answer to this question is that there is NO universe where this makes sense for us to attend the same classes two days in a row. I think that the answer that makes the most obvious sense is for us to start our regular TUESDAY classes on the TUESDAY after Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
But what do I know?
