In a referendum held on Monday and Tuesday, 83 per cent of voters at Bishop’s University responded “yes” to the question, “Do you agree that the SRC should pursue the addition of a fall reading week to the academic calendar?”
In 2019, current Student Representative Council (SRC) president Enzo Evangelisti ran for election with a fall reading week as a major part of his platform.
Bishop’s University already has one in the winter semester (aka. spring break). They are one of the few Canadian universities without a similar break in the fall semester.
Evangelisti said the purpose of the referendum was to gauge student opinion on the matter. He was happy to see the substantial voter turnout, and the fact that the referendum passed.
