- As colleges look ahead to the spring term, several are announcing they intend to cancel spring break.
- The decisions continue a trend of institutions adjusting their academic calendars to reduce travel to and from campus.
- And they come as schools offer more details on campus operations and instructional modes for the spring term.
College officials are looking for ways to limit students’ travel to and from campus, including by eliminating spring break. While many students spent the break from classes at home or picked up extra hours at work, some made headlines last school year for partying in spite of the pandemic.
This academic year’s spring plans come soon after many schools said they would wrap up in-person instruction before Thanksgiving and eliminate fall breaks.
