Bold italics indicate a day of religious obligation that falls within our class schedule and that generally requires attendance at services or travel to be with family.  If assignments must be scheduled on these days, please consider a liberal make-up schedule to accommodate our more observant students. As always, students should contact faculty well in advance to discuss any anticipated absence.

* These Holy Days begin at sundown the day before this date.
