Finals?

When are finals for your college kiddos? Will they have a long Christmas break? Seems when my boys were in public universities they had about a month off at Christmas but when Jason was at NU and Loyola (private) he only had a couple weeks - they started back right after the new year.

Finals finish the 20th but ds's art classes are more projects than finals.  He then goes back 3 weeks later, which is shorter than normal. (wasn't NU on quarters? When I was an undergrad and on quarters, Thanksgiving was 'finals prep' and we had finals immediately following, so we were off earlier than people on semesters but then did start back earlier and had 2 more quarters before finishing in June)

Jordyn is on the quarter system.  They have finals next week.  I know she has a final in Latin, and a paper due for English, but not sure about her two fresman seminars.  She didn't have mid-terms for them.  The 13th is the last day of finals, but she and the teammates from the dorms are in a hotel and doing practices until the 20th and can't leave until the 21st.  She has a late flight on the 21st, getting into my parents house on the morning of the 22nd.  Not sure what her schedule is that week, hoping they keep them pretty busy, she doesn't need to be spending any more money before the end of the semester.  They start back to classes on the 6th.

Since Chris has all computer multimedia and design classes, his finals are all projects, and he seems to have them well under control.  He just finished turning in his portfolio for review to get into the portfolio class next semester---the final class he needs for his degree.  (to keep his Pell grant, he's taking some other classes, like business for artists, and an art class that he doesn't need but everyone speaks highly of).    I think the last day of classes is Monday, December 16, and the next term starts on January 13.   I know his campus job continues one week past the end of the fall term and starts up again one week before the spring term begins, but he will get a bit of a break.

I know he NEEDS a break. Between taking 12 credits, working 25 hours a week, and  helping his girlfriend take care of their baby, he is exhausted.  Last night, he went to bed at about 9:30!

Finals are this week at Amanda's school. Her classes all seem to be requiring big papers in lieu of exams. Tomorrow her biggest one is due. Since all they have to do is turn it in, she emailed it to one of he sorority sister's who is in the same class and she will turn it in for her. She has 2 more due on Thursday and then she is done for the semester.
