2010: Year of the Petition.

Last week, we told you about yet another possible Study Days solution: an indepedent proposal submitted by faculty suggesting that our Fall Break be eliminated in order to end classes earlier Fall semester. The 50 comments on that post showed that most of you were none-too-pleased about the proposition, and the councils seem to have caught on. Another Study Days petition was born:  Laura Gabriele and Eugenio Suarez, affiliated with ESC and SGB, respectively, started the petition and joined forces with ESC later in the day. If the petition gets 150 signatures, the motion is automatically sent to the University Senate for revision. As of 11:30 PM on Monday night, the group had 309 members, although not all members seemed to be in support of the petition. Some commented “take my fall break,” apparently preferring the extra days of school in November to getting home late for the holidays.

Check out the petition, and let us know what you think in the comments. The councils are listening!
