While many offices and services will be closed during the Thanksgiving break, some departments may remain open.
Student employees and supervisors should communicate prior to the break so there is a clear understanding of when departments close and reopen, and what the work needs/expectations are during that time.
Any student employee who works during the Thanksgiving Break must adhere to the 20 hour per week limit, and must report their time accurately. Questions regarding Early Release Pay or payment for hours worked by student employees during the break can be directed to the Student Employment Office at 585-475-2631.
Thanksgiving is also a time where many people give back to their communities as a way of giving thanks. If you are interested in finding a place to volunteer and give back to your community, visit the Center for Leadership & Civic Engagement website for a list of available volunteer opportunities.
