During fall 2016, the Campus Calendar and Registration Committee surveyed our campus community for feedback on a number of questions related to the academic calendar, including our practice of flexing observance of certain state holidays to accommodate other calendar priorities. Community feedback strongly supported observing the Memorial Day state holiday on Memorial Day, rather than the Tuesday after Easter, as we have been doing to accommodate a four-day Easter break.
In response to the feedback from the survey, Appalachian State University will observe Memorial Day on Monday, May 28, 2018. Tuesday, April 3, 2018 will not be observed as a state holiday for employees, as originally published. The academic schedule is not impacted by this change and the remainder of the 2017-18 academic calendar remains intact as published.
