Spring break plans can be left in tact for students and faculty as California University of Pennsylvania will not be making up lost class time during that week.
Vice President of University Relations Angela Burrows said Wednesday morning the university has no plans to make any changes to the spring academic calendar .
“All spring events (Honors Convocation, Spring Break, Reading Day, Finals Week, Undergraduate and Graduate Commencement, etc.) will be held on their regularly scheduled dates and as per the current academic calendar posted for Spring 2010,” Burrows said.
The university also issued a notice about students about preparing to continue with the class schedules when the university reopens this weekend.
“Regarding any examinations that were scheduled, or reports due on Monday, Feb. 8, we ask that all students expect that same examination or assignment to be due on Monday, Feb. 15, and to be prepared for such in the event the professor decides to take this course of action,” Burrows said.
The university reminds students that professors make the final decisions regarding their course schedules, including what will be done with assignments and tests, for example.
The university is scheduled to reopen on Saturday Feb. 13. Classes will resume on that date and the library will reopen as well.
Students are encouraged to check the university Web site, www.calu.edu, for updates.
