For most of us Labor Day is a company holiday, a bank holiday, and a day off school. But someone in college told me they had classes on Labor Day. Isn't that weird? Did anyone else have class or did you have it off?

My school always starts the Wednesday after Labor Day but my brother (who is in college) told me he had school on Labor Day this year.

Weird. My university was always closed on Labor Day. It was a great break from the stress of starting a new semester/schedule. You know, a time to regroup and reflect...read: catch up on sleep and goof off.



Are the colleges that hold class private instutitions only? Seems that any publically funded school would have the day off since its a federal holiday but private schools would not have to comply.

No, I've never had classes on Labour Day. I went to orientation day at my university today, and I have my first class on Thursday (I think classes start Wednesday, but I don't have any classes on Wednesdays.)

We didn't have class either. Maybe I shouldn't have called her a liar.

I worked on Labor Day, but it was by choice. (I don't know why, but I like lurking about the office on the weekend. I actually get more work done than I do during the week, and it makes me feel productive.)

my best friend had school on labor day, but its because she goes to a college founded by quakers, and they don't believe in holidays. So apparently the only holiday they get off is MLK day

we usually started on labor day. My college recognized no religious or national holidays aside from Thanksgiving. We had a long weekend in October for "study days," a long weekend for Thanksgiving, a month for Christmas, two weeks for Spring Break (this made up for all the other days schools were closed, and lets face it, its better to have the days all in a row!) and that was it.
