Many colleges are planning to skip fall break so the semester can end before Thanksgiving, in hopes of avoiding a second wave of COVID-19 expected in late fall.
The University of South Carolina, Notre Dame and Rice are all trying to shorten the semester.
Chapman University in Orange is also said to be considering a similar proposal.
Other local schools, including Pepperdine and Azusa Pacific, are working to bring students back on campus this fall, but have not made any final decisions.
