NC State for Reading Days
For years, NC State University has implemented a \"dead week\" policy that is vague and ineffective in allotting students ample time to prepare well for final examinations. As a result, the Student Senate has decided to push for the implementation of reading days on campus. This will be a policy of ending class on Wednesday, rather than Friday, and giving students a Thursday thru Sunday break from all formal classes and assignments before final examinations. The University Calendar Committee will be setting the next three year calendar Tuesday, February 5 at 3:00pm. In order to convince them of the plausibility and need for reading days on this calendar, we need student support. Amber Joyner, chair of the Senate Academics Committee, will be taking to the committee a presentation on the need for and benefits of reading days as well as this petition of student support.
