Street Interviews: Should NIU have a fall break?

January 22, 2023

DeKALB –While NIU engages in a Thanksgiving break every November, the university does not have fall break, as some other schools do.

Whether or not to implement one is a debate that continues, but the issue is tricky. While an extra day to sleep in is always worth celebrating, adding a fall break may have financial consequences or require time to be taken away from winter, spring or summer breaks.

Would two autumn days off be worth the cost? NIU students hold a mix of opinions.
