Extend Winter Break at UBC

This petition made change with 7,371 supporters!

As we all know, this term has been more difficult for most of us due to the pandemic. Most of us have struggled in different ways, and our mental health has been affected negatively due to reasons like general anxiety about the disease, losing jobs, suffering personally or having a family member suffer from COVID-19, and less socializing. 

Many universities have extended their winter break this year in order to give students more time to relax and prepare better for the following term. UBC students deserve this too, we have all been working very hard this term. Many students could use this extended break to visit their families, and international students moving to campus can have an easier time quarantining during the break, rather than when classes have started. Also, arguably, this would help instructors prepare better for the following term. 

UBC is a top university, and one thing they can do to be better is to show that they care about their students’ mental health. We all have been working very hard and we deserve this break in order to focus on ourselves and regain the energy to start term 2.
