The University of Guelph’s proposed fall study break will not effect the University of Guelph-Humber.

Guelph Student Affairs Vice President Brenda Whiteside told the Post that GH is looking at a different option.

Whiteside explained that the email wasn’t sent to GH students as it would have caused “unnecessary angst”, but that Registrar Grant Kerr was made aware.

The University of Guelph is set to start the fall semester of 2018 early and add a day to the study break should the proposal be approved.

While the study break proposal has been a long-lasting debate on the Guelph campus, it is also a deeper issue on the GH campus.

Correction: The Post incorrectly stated in the article on fall study break previous to this one that we had contacted IGNITE student leadership, when we had meant to inform the reader we had reached out to a student Senate representative from GH. IGNITE VP of GH John Kokkoros rightfully pointed this out. We apologize for the mistake and will continue to strive for journalistic integrity.
