Students deserve and need a normal length spring break! We are still doing classes and course work, it’s just a different format and that shouldn’t change the length of our only time for relaxation and catching up to school work. Also, we are in the middle of a global pandemic, everyone deserves a week to mentally recharge and put their health first.

I'm signing this petition because I think that this is a drastic and ridiculous decision at this point in the school year. It seems to me like Becky Blank is more concerned with planning Spring semester rather than trying to keep Fall semester afloat. One day off in the spring is not enough to help the students who are stressed out of their minds all semester. Many students use that week to catch up on classes and to study for upcoming exams. AND to actually have some relaxation before classes start back up. If you're going to just tack the break on to winter break than you might as well just end spring semester a week early so we can escape this bullshit university early.

Thanks for adding your voice.
