8.2 Absences Following Athletic Victories

  1. General. The desirability of wholesome interest in and enthusiasm for activities sponsored by the University is fully recognized. If this interest and enthusiasm should find expression in group activities, arrangements for such programs should be made through the proper administrative channels, should reflect the wishes of the entire student body, and should not interfere with regularly scheduled University classes.
  2. Policy. It is the definite policy of the University to recognize only those holidays specifically provided for in the official calendar prepared by the appropriate committee appointed by the President under authority granted by the Board of Regents, State of Iowa. It is contrary to University policy to grant holidays from classes following athletic victories and such holidays will not be approved.
