Nebraska state colleges to continue spring semester as normal
The Nebraska State College System has approved the 2021 spring academic calendar, with a normal semester including a five-day mid-term break. Wayne State College, Peru State College and Chadron State College’s spring semesters will begin Jan. 11 and end May 7, according to an email from Paul Turman, NSCS chancellor.
A five-day mid-term break will be run from March 8-12. This will allow students to travel off-campus, which was a concern during the fall semester for NSCS administrators. But Turman said the college is looking into other ways to keep students on campus.
“The college leadership teams are confident that the collective efforts of each college during this fall term to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 will continue to serve the state colleges during the spring 2021 term,” he said.
