Study Away: Fall Semester vs. Spring Semester

The College has many more students participating in study away in the spring semester than in the fall semester. This enrollment imbalance has caused significant issues on campus, such as low (or sometimes no) extra housing available (for students who may need to move), difficulty enrolling in courses, and long wait times for Valentine Dining Hall. If departments are able to offer students flexibility in which semester they study away, this would aid in our efforts to balance enrollment across semesters.
