Background:
My University boasts 'global' standards. However, the administrators don't consider Good Friday to be a University holiday. Christians are the largest minority group in this University and account for about 12% of the student population. Note that the University declares every major/minor Hindu and Muslim day of faith a holiday.

I am an atheist, but I wrote a letter on behalf of the Christians to the administration which was sidelined. Protests may erupt soon.

Yep, religion is a big deal in India.

TLDR: How secular is your University? Or more broadly, how culturally sensitive is your educational institution?

I attend a public university in America and we don't get Good Friday off either.

The university does allow excused absences without penalties for it, though.

Same. I think MLK and Labor Day are the only "Special" days we get off.

If every religious holiday gets you out of school then you'd be in for about 12 days in a year.

But this is the Friday that Jesus was killed on, so it's especially good.

Why do christians call it Good friday if jesus got killed on it? Seems like something the jews would call it.

I guess because he resurrected and his descent into hell to free the innocent can be seen as good?

I dunno.

I see it as Good Friday because Jesus and two other guys got hammered and didn't know where they were until three days after.

*sigged mentally*

Anyways, like I said, religion is a major thing here. I would prefer if they did away with every religious holiday. But declaring every other religion's sentimental days off and obscuring one is a dick move, not to mention unconstitutional.

We are as secular as to say that the government doesn't determine whether it is de jure a day off.

That said, most businesses except the retail businesses or markets are closed that day, and so are most schools.

Which university is that

University of Northern British Columbia. I guess technically, class "ends" on the 5th, but the entire school is closed Friday and Monday.

Good friday? Around here it's called what translates into "the long friday" and you're supposed to be miserable and every shop is closed.

I don't consider myself devout, but a day off would be nice.
That in consideration, do you really NEED a day off? My uni takes off friday I believe, maybe even Thursday.

Jesus' death leads to his resurrection, which the entire religion is created off of. Pretty good Friday for the Christians.
