TBT: The Last Stretch Towards Fall Break

Happy Early Fall Break Wildcats—you have this under control! 

We know you’re probably drained from all the exams this week, but don’t worry, Fall Break is just around the corner, and you have the student body of 1985 to thank! 

In the 1986 issue of The Villanovan (our TBT today) a columnist pushes to keep Villanova’s Fall Break that had been established just a year prior in October 1985 after three years of student advocacy in favor of its inauguration. 

Now that the University has challenged the status of Fall Break once again, the students were not ones to give up so easily. It is because of consistent student activism and support that the university decided to continue Fall Break for its students and why we, in 2023, still reap the benefits of a strategically placed break right after midterms.  

So after your exams are over, use this time over break to rest, relax, and have fun. Don’t let Fall Break go to waste!
