“I think it kind of was a help, just to have that relaxation period in between. Even though I didn’t get to relax much, because I work. But I think it did help, to catch up on things that I was falling behind on and all that.”

“It was a help for me, because it gave me a chance to actually know “what I want to do with myself. And just get the time for myself, away from all homework assignments, and just have the time for myself. “

“I think that it was probably a hinderance. You take a break, so you’re in the swing of things, then you have an entire week off. Then you come back and you have to get back into the swing of things.”

“It was a hinderance. For example I had an exam due before thanksgiving break, and now I have a lab quiz over the same material over a week later and I think it put a strain on my studying because I wasn’t focuses in school mode for this lab quiz.”
