Thanksgiving's coming early this year

I work at a university library, and this gives me a front row seat of the habits of today's college student. It used to be that the university had classes right up to the Wednesday before Thanksgiving (I had even been told that some universitys will count Wednesday absences as double). However, this year, the university is bowing to the reality regarding usual college student behavior, and there won't be any classes on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving.

Of course, as I've said, knowing the usual behavior of the typical college student, this only means that most students will be skipping Tuesday instead of Wednesday. ;-)

In other words, next week is going to be basically a one-day week!

(and no doubt, a few students will probably be skipping Monday as well...)
