INCOMING: The shortest month of the year
This year, March has only 11 days of classes, and—in all likelihood—at least one of them is complete by the time you’re reading this. So go ahead and count down the rest on your hands, ‘cause there are only as many days left as you have fingers. Better yet, we’ve got two long weeks of spring break right in the middle. I think I can handle this one. See you in April… It’ll be here quick!
OUTGOING: The longest month of the year
No matter what they try to tell you, February is not the shortest month. It’s not even a leap year, but the calendar lies. With 20 scheduled class days, February is longer than any other month in the academic year. That means it’s got by far the highest ratio of class days to weekend days. And there are no holidays. Seasonal affectedness disorder is real, but at least it’s coming to an end now.
