Kansas State students have another week to catch up on homework, projects and partying thanks to President Richard Myers, who canceled the next week of classes to make a second spring break.

“I am told there has not been a snow day in three years, so we are making up for that now,” Myers said in a statement today. “We could all use another week of spring break.”

“You have to promise to use this week wisely. Do homework in the mornings, group projects in the afternoons, take a nap, then party in the evening. You will catch up on everything that way.”

Myers did not say whether this cancelled week of classes means an extra week will be added at the end of the semester.

Snue Angel, senior in meteorology, said he has been disappointed by the lack of snow days.

“We had two my freshman year,” Angel said. “I told my roommate that if we did our homework, we’d have a snow day, and that if we didn’t do it, we wouldn’t. We both did our homework, and we had two snow days in a row.

“Ever since then, I’ve made sure to always do my homework whenever it’s looking like a storm is approaching, and even though we’ve had snow, we just never get a snow day. I’m glad Myers is making up for that.”

Bre Ache, freshman in architecture and leadership studies, does not support Myers’ move.

“I did all my work over spring break, just like I was supposed to,” Ache said. “It’s everyone’s own fault if they didn’t do their work when they had an entire week to do it. This is just encouraging their bad study habits.”
