As the fall semester comes to a close, many students are thinking about their fast- approaching finals. Finals week runs from Tuesday, Dec. 10 to Saturday, Dec. 14 on a special class schedule that can be found on Millersville’s website. Once they finish their finals, students can celebrate the beginning of winter break.
Many will spend the five weeks of winter break at home with family and friends. However, some students will remain at school to take classes during the winter session. Millersville offers a variety of winter classes, which can be taken on campus and online from Monday, Dec. 16 to Friday, Jan. 19. All residence halls are closed during winter break; if students are in need of housing accommodations over break, they should contact the Department of Housing and Residential Programs at (717) 872-3162.
Students who live in the area or choose not to return home for the break have the opportunity to attend events hosted by the Ware Center, as well the many athletic events located here on campus.
