Transcript Let it £ How •••• Tust when it seemed as though the fall semester J would never end, the sanity of countless UH students was saved in a flash of brilliance by winter break: a month-long rest period devoid of classes, tests, commuting, or any of the other hassles of college life. The last finals of 2001 were given on December 13th. After that, students were free until the first day of the spring semester: January 14th, 2002. Students used this free time in many different ways. Many students felt that the holidays were a time to be with their families. "This year especially, it was really important for me to be at home with my parents and brother," said Camille Rogers, a sophomore university studies major. In light of the tragedies in New York, Washington, and Pennsylvania, many students agreed that spending time with close family members and friends would be a top priority over the break. Some students spent the winter break at work, saving up money for yet another semester of frivolous college spending. Others took the time to relax, slow down, and unwind before the opening of classes. Skiing was the escape of choice for junior biology major Justin Trent, a native of Colorado who was not used to prolonged absences from ski resorts. "Winter break is my only chance during the year to really get back to what I love to do," he said. Sleep seemed to be a choice very highly esteemed by a number of UH students over the break, their eyes still bloodshot from late nights of studying right before finals. Studying ahead for the next semester, however, seemed to rank low on everyone's list of priorities. No matter how students and faculty members spent their vacations, whether it was with family or coworkers, friends or strangers, everyone agreed that winter break was a great chance to catch up on a little bit of lost sleep, take it easy for a while, and start the spring semester off on the right foot.
