Some students on campus said they're happy to get an "early" start to the holiday break, but others were concerned for those who rely on-campus resources to work on assignments.

"I do wish there was at least one place where all the windows are shut, all the doors are shut, you can have good air conditioning, and students can study," said David Horowitz.
