The students have found Semester 2 (the current 2022 Semester) to be particularly taxing in terms of their workloads and clinicals as well as the hours arising from increased coursework. It is therefore imperative for the collective mental and physical health of the student body to be given a break from classes, tests, studying and clinicals as planned on the UB Almanac. This is in fact the primary reason for breaking an academic year into semesters with scheduled and published breaks between.

We are unofficially informed that we would not be allowed to go for the mid semester break due to ongoing clinicals and do not feel this a fair mandate by The Faculty Administration and appeal to our Heads and Supervisors to please consider that the students are exhausted and over worked at present and in dire need of this break. Many of us also use this break to travel home to visit with our children, parents, siblings and extended family.

It is justifiably felt that should the students have been expected to work through the mid semester break then we should have been engaged at a reasonable period beforehand to discuss this matter and to allow for everyone involved to plan accordingly.
