Is Our Winter Break Simply Too Long?

Posted: February 4, 2015 in Uncategorized

Six weeks of winter break and one week of spring break; something doesn’t seem right. While some students utilize the lengthy break better than others, many would forgo a week or two in exchange for a longer spring or summer break. Although it is a difficult policy to correct, it should be taken into consideration because what may seem like a blessing to some, is a curse to most others.

After the fourth paragraph: “If DU is so concerned with students getting internships, why let them out so late in summer that it is nearly impossible to find an internship that they are qualified for relative to availability?”

After the seventh paragraph: “It seems a little odd to me that DU, with easily one of the highest tuitions in the U.S., would require the long six week break as a monetary policy.”
