Staff editorial: Breaks help students learn and relax

The Hatchet’s editorial board calls for GW to better distribute the days of school over the semester so that students have more breaks, and an opportunity to recharge.

For many students, these next few days of classes before Thanksgiving are markedly different than the rest of the semester. Even though the University has made classes today and tomorrow mandatory for professors and students, chances are many seats will be empty. Professors will probably end up re-teaching the material once students return next week. This speaks to the idea that GW needs to re-evaluate its current academic calendar in a way that would prove beneficial for students.
