Cogswell College (The University of Silicon Valley) is a private school located in San Jose, CA. This school is dedicated to nurturing students with creative dreams into becoming professionals in the entertainment industry; however, it provides unsatisfactory breaks for students and faculty in between trimesters. 

After a trimester of fifteen weeks, students are provided breaks, a minimum of one week and a maximum of two weeks. These short breaks are not enough time for students to unwind, especially for students that are employed, after stressful and exhausting weeks of working on assignments/projects and outside responsibilities. It is not enough time for students to readjust their sleeping schedule after all-nighters from midterms and finals and it is not enough time for students to spend time with family, especially students that are far from home. 

If students receive longer breaks then faculty will receive longer breaks as well. Longer breaks will provide faculty more time to unwind and prepare for the new trimester, as well as provide more time to integrate students’ feedback on how to better the school. Instructors will have enough time to unwind after weeks of teaching students and exhaustingly grading their assignments/projects and will have more time to prepare and improve their lesson plans. Representatives will have more time with family and friends after stressfully aiding each individual student with financial plans, scheduling classes, as well as other things. 

By signing this petition, it could result in Cogswell College rearranging the trimester system providing students and faculty with longer breaks (an additional week on each break) that would be well-deserved after a long and stressful and exhausting trimester. Thank you.
