The University of Windsor is considering adding an autumn reading week.

School president Alan Wildeman said the idea has pros and cons.

"It would work like the reading week in the winter semester. At the appropriate time, the students would be given a week to regroup, to help relieve the stress of the semester," he said. "But we also have to look at it through the lens of being able to complete the semester and all the work that faculty want to see done."

Wildeman says the University of Windsor is one of a few in Ontario that does not have a break in the fall term.
