by Janet Chao Winter break starts right after the final exams. If you are granted to take leave during the final exam week, don’t forget to take your makeup finals scheduled during 1/16-18. The Spring semester will begin on 2/20. Students who plan to go back to the country during the recess, please come back early to prepare for a new semester. Chinese New Year is one of the most important holidays in Taiwan. If you stay in Taiwan during this holiday season, come and celebrate with Taiwanese!
