Fall 2006*

The first day of classes for the fall semester normally begins on a Thursday. This results in Finals beginning on a Monday and proceeding through Friday and then Commencement on Saturday. In 2006, the Saturday that would normally be Commencement day is Hanukkah. Since it is institutional practice to make every reasonable effort to allow members of the University community to observe their religious holidays, this schedule has been adjusted to hold Commencement on Friday, December 15. In order to have the required number of class days, the schedule indicates that the first day of classes will be on Wednesday, August 16. In order to provide an equal number of class meetings for classes which may be scheduled for Thursday only or Friday only, it is then necessary to operate a Friday class schedule on Wednesday, December 6, and a Thursday class schedule on Tuesday, December 5.
