A Shorter Winter Vacation? University of Montana Students Weigh-In [VIDEO]
Will University of Montana students be having a reduced winter break? According to KGVO: University of Montana Provost Perry Brown is asking the campus community to weigh-in on a proposal to shorten winter break.
Brown says the UM has one of the longest winter Breaks in the U.S.
"If people are on a quarter system like the west coast schools, they are back in school the second or third of January, so they have, basically, a two week break," Brown said. "If you are in a semester school you have about a four week break. But ours has been as long as seven and about as short as five and a half."
Brown proposes shortening the vacation to about four weeks. He says a shorter break might make UM graduates more competitive when it comes to finding jobs in the summer
