RHA and SGA s proposal will suggest a two-day mid-semester break iunng fall semester. RHA committee member Richard Thompson said the mid-term break was proposed at the same time the academic calendar was changed last year. "I don't know what the rationale was behind them not doing it then," Thompson, Onaway junior, said. A-Senate representative Christa Kamenetsky said she could not comment on the proposal until it is submitted. RHA Chairman Steve Hopper said the break will be proposed between Labor Day weekend and Thanksgiving break. He said the proposal suggests scheduling it on a Monday and Tuesday to create a long weekend. Hopper, Lansing sophomore, said the committee will submit a proposal to the A-Senate regarding when the break should be scheduled Hopper said the school year probably would --.tart or end two days early or late. "They wouldn't shorten the vacations, I don't think." Hopper said. RHA members said the break is needed to alleviate stress from mid-term exams "I think a lot of students would agree th3t something is needed to relieve the stress," Thompson said. Thompson said the stress comes from school, p-eers, roommates, home and financial problems "If you don't take any breaks, the stress will build in you," he said. RHA committ.ee member Tern Campbell, said the break is needed to give students time to rest and talk about problems. Campbell. Northville freshman, said this will help prevent roommate problems RHA St?cretary Michelle Brasseur said a break is needed because students are not able to leave behind their school work like professionals can. "Also, you don't live in a small room with three or four people." Brasseur, .Saginaw junior, added about living conditions.
