Classes end on the 17th, and normally we'd be off starting the 24th, so in between it's just regular work stuff - no students on campus, faculty turn in their grades, and we just mop up before break. If they close up shop, we'd just have the whole week off instead of coming in M-W (21-23). I work in the Library, and we'd normally be open those days, but it's not that big of a deal to close instead. There are a few units on campus that wouldn't be able to close early (Registrar, Academic Services) because they have to do stuff before we leave for break and can't do it in 1 day, but they'd get those days off some other time.

I think it's ostensibly to turn off the electricity/HVAC on campus early, so even though we'd still get paid, it'd be saving the state some money.

i was also gonna say: not that im against more vacation time. hope you get it. i cant wait for this semester to end. we, unfortunately, dont end til mid january. were semestered but final exams and final papers are due after christmas break and in the 2nd week of january. then we get a week and a half off and come back on feb 1st for the spring semester. trade offs.

Ouch. Still, at least you get time off! :) It wasn't until I started working in higher ed that I started to get the whole week off from Christmas to New Year's, so having a full 2 weeks would just be totally awesome. :D
