The justification for making an adjustment to the Fall 2020 academic calendar is to allow K-State to reduce the risk for students and their/our families and communities by reducing the need to travel back after Thanksgiving and then leaving again several weeks later for break. Rather than traveling three times in a four-week period, they will only have to travel once.
