Students won’t have to hustle to return to school next week after enjoying Thanksgiving weekend with their families.
The first fall reading week at Brock starts Tuesday, Oct. 15 and runs through Oct. 18.
The addition of the mid-term break is part of a three-year pilot project by the University, following recommendations in its mental health strategy to create a fall reading week to help students alleviate stress. The addition of the break is also supported by the Brock University Students’ Union.
Several other universities have also already adopted a fall reading week to support student success and mental health.
