Lehigh has an interesting schedule when it comes to breaks in the semester. Some schools will have a week off for Thanksgiving, but at Lehigh we only have Wednesday-Friday off. Instead of having the full week off, we’ll have Monday and Tuesday of the first (usually) weekend of October off. The break comes after the first round of midterms (known as 4 O’Clocks here at Lehigh). So it’s a much needed break, but it seems unusual in the sense of when it actually takes place. Last week my TA for my physics lab, who went to Penn State, was complaining about it being dumb, but I wouldn’t change it. It’s a refreshing break after midterms, especially for first years who are only just getting used to testing at Lehigh.
