Remember: Tuesday, Nov. 22, is Friday
As announced before the start of fall semester, Tuesday, Nov. 22 -- the Tuesday before the Thanksgiving holiday -- will follow a Friday class schedule. This will enable the University to better balance class offerings and laboratories across each day of the week. For the past several years, the scheduling anomaly had taken place on the first day of the fall semester. However, the timing resulted in confusion for students and faculty as the new semester began. At the recommendation of the University Faculty Senate, President Graham B. Spanier approved a change to the fall semester calendar, making Tuesday, Nov. 22, the day for the schedule switch. The Penn State York academic calendar is available at online.
