Northwestern Plans to Change Fall Break and Thanksgiving Break
June 17, 2020
Northwestern Oklahoma State University officials have decided to exchange the two-day fall break for an additional two days during Thanksgiving break for the fall 2020 semester.
On Oct. 15 and 16, students and employees will remain on campus for classes and work. Thanksgiving break will take place from Nov. 23-27.
“We are expecting to limit the number of times students leave for home and return to campus,” said Dr. Janet Cunningham, university president. “This will limit our students’ exposure to COVID-19 and chances of bringing it on campus.”
This plan will leave the greatest flexibility for response as Northwestern officials monitor the developments of COVID-19 closer to Thanksgiving break.
