LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – While students are enjoying time away from classes over the winter break, EOU will follow suit and close Dec. 19-26.
Closing the week before Christmas will save the university $450,000 in utility costs and is part of the broader sustainability plan Bob Davies, EOU president, announced in June and updated this fall. Essential services such as campus security will continue to operate during the break. The university will reopen for business on Tuesday, Dec. 27. Monday, Dec. 26 is a recognized state holiday.
EOU will also close Monday, Jan. 2 for the New Year’s holiday. Winter term classes begin the following week, Jan. 9.
