Grad students don’t have semester break

At my school, graduate students (in particular, PhD students) are expected to not have semester breaks (Fall break and Spring break). Usually, they work over the break, trying to finish a paper or a presentation for a coming conference, or grade mid-term exams or homeworks (that’s what I am doing now). This fact is popular among universities in the US, not only at my school, as reflected in a comic strip on phdcomics.com.
