College of Marin students will soak up the Spring Break sun for the last time this April. Starting next year, COM will be doing away with the week-long break in April. Instead, students and faculty will be joining Marin’s schoolchildren and high schools, and taking off for what traditionally has been called “Ski Week.”
Additionally, the winter recess will be extended by a week, giving students four full weeks away from school, testing, and classes. Students are ambivalent about the subsequent short time between vacations, to be implemented in January and February of 2015.
