I have to say that I am really happy that SUNY Oswego recognizes holidays of other ethnicities, not just the “standard” holidays such as Christmas, Easter, and so forth, and this isn’t just because of the days off from classes. These holidays should be recognized and not just because of college being more diverse than high school, because when I was in high school, I knew many different students of different ethnic backgrounds; diversity is everywhere. It therefore only seems to make sense to recognize other holidays as well. For example, if a college such as SUNY Oswego is going to recognize Easter and Christmas, both typically observed by those of Christian faith, then it only makes sense to recognize holidays such as Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. I am very excited and encouraged by the strong sense of recognition of the different ethnicities and the diversity here at SUNY Oswego.
