GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) - Students at Bob Jones University will get to do something next year that no one in the school’s 88-year history has ever done.

The Greenville News reports (https://grnol.co/1JpqLTX) that President Steve Pettit has told students they will get a spring break in 2016, which will be scheduled around Easter.

School spokesman Randy Page said spring break was something Pettit wanted to look at, and after being at the school for almost a year, he felt it was important for students to get a break. The announcement was made on Tuesday.

The conservative Christian university historically has held a one-week Bible Conference featuring a variety of speakers during a week off of classes for students each spring. The conference will now last four days and will be held in February.
