Editor’s note: We asked students around campus whether or not they planned to skip class next week before Thanksgiving break.
Gloria Li, biology freshman from Sugar Land
Are you skipping class next week? Yes, I am skipping one class next week.
On which days, and why? I’m skipping Wednesday — my economics class — from 1 to 2 p.m. because all of my classes are canceled on Wednesday, and one of my classes is canceled on Tuesday, so I figured I should just go home and spend more time with my family.
Leon Truong, biology junior from Grand Prairie
Are you skipping class next week? Yes.
On which days? I’m going to go home Wednesday, so I’m skipping class Thursday. Wednesday, actually, because Thanksgiving break starts on Thursday. So just Wednesday.
Why? Because I’m carpooling with someone and he has to go home Wednesday, so I have to kind of follow him.
Krishna Suzana, biology sophomore from Humble
Are you skipping class next week? Yes, I am. The only classes that I’m not skipping on Tuesday and Wednesday are classes that it hurts my grade if I miss. But the classes that professors haven’t canceled and it doesn’t matter for attendance, I’m not going.
Lexie Krause, biochemistry freshman from Humble
Are you skipping class next week? I am. My professors canceled class. All my professors canceled class on Wednesday. But Monday and Tuesday I am going to my class, because my grade would suffer if I didn’t go.
Juliana Leon, electrical engineering sophomore from Tomball
Are you skipping class next week? Yeah.
On which days, and why? On Wednesday. One of them, there’s reading for that day, so we don’t have to go to class. We can read on our own. And then the other one is a TA session, and he’s purposely not giving us a quiz when he usually gives us a quiz, so we don’t have to show up for it.
Maddy Burdick, civil engineering sophomore from College Station
Are you skipping class next week? All my classes on Wednesday got canceled, so I’m not going to class.
And that’s just on Wednesday? Yeah, just Wednesday. But I’m going to classes on Tuesday.
Joshua Kendall, environmental science junior from New London
Are you skipping class next week, or have your professors canceled classes? My professors aren’t canceling, and unfortunately, no, I’m not skipping class.
Taylor Kelly, psychology junior from Kingwood
Are you skipping class next week, or have your professors canceled classes next week? My professors have canceled on Wednesday, and I will probably be skipping on Tuesday.
Why? I don’t have much time to be home with my family, so more time is better.
