What’s up with the Academic Calendar?

Essence Buckman September 22, 2016
Wofford College is known for many things, including its academic rigor, being the home of the Carolina Panthers’ training camp, Greek life, and many other attributes. It is also known for the date of the first day of classes. Since 1999, Wofford has resumed class on Labor Day. To many, this starting date is considered a late one. With school having started on Sept. 5, some are under the impression that an extra week was added to each semester.
