For several years NJIT gave all employees Fridays off until the third week in August. The university saves $200,000/year in energy costs by closing on Fridays. Things were very slow today in the library and on campus in general. I guess there are certain offices like the registrar, financial aid, admissions and graduate studies that are getting busy with classes starting on September 2nd. So I will have to get used to two day weekends again. Working in academia does have its perks with 20 vacation days, 3 personal days, and the week off between Christmas and New Years. How could I go back to a corporation and get only 2 weeks a year vacation.
