University closes for Labor Day

August 29, 2013

On Monday, September 2 the University closes in honor of the American federal holiday, Labor Day. All offices will be closed and no classes will be held.

No classes Monday, Sept. 2

The first Monday in September was made a federal holiday in 1894 to acknowledge trade and labor organizations.

The significance of Labor Day and its celebrations have since broadened to pay tribute to all American workers and to symbolize the end of summer.

The day is celebrated in America with picnics, barbecues, sporting, and public art events. Labor Day signifies the summer's end and many Americans camp, fish, or just relax.

In the world of sports, the holiday signals the beginning of the NFL and college football seasons.

Colorado State opens its football season on Sunday, Sept.1 with the 2013 Rocky Mountain Showdown at Sports Authority Field at Mile High in Denver. The game is the 85th renewal of the longstanding rivalry between the two schools. Kickoff is at 4 p.m.

Classes resume Sept. 3
