R U Reading?

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!


The end of the semester is the harbinger of seasonal term breaks, tearful farewells, the bittersweet closure of classes, and most importantly, the stress of finals week. In light of upcoming final examinations, it is customary for academic institutions to grant students a period to review course material, at some institutions up to a week’s time (i.e. “dead week”). Fall of 2016, Rutgers University set aside a single reading day. The purpose of this petition is to ensure Rutgers University students are provided ample time to study to perform well on their future final examinations. The desired outcomes of this petition are as follows:

At least three readings days prior to the commencement of final exams should be incorporated into the academic calendar. In the case of compensation for the loss of semester days due to inclement weather, no more than one of the three readings days allotted should be sacrificed.

Rutgers University is an institution in which students of various backgrounds, continuing health care providers, parents, reserved military officers, research assistants, credit overloaders, etc. entrust their futures. Rightfully, it claims its position as “one of the most significant and diverse comprehensive research universities in the nation” on the school website. Though Rutgers University acknowledges the richness and abundance of its scholars, the institution fails to consider the student community in their decision making in regards to scheduling final exams. Indeed, resources are available, however without the time to utilize them, their accessibility and efficiency erode.
