Turn clocks forward, enjoy longer, lighter days

Hurley Building at dusk

Daylight Saving Time returns at 2 a.m. March 13, giving faculty and staff another hour of daylight on the spring break holiday. The campus will be closed Monday, March 14. Spring break for students will be March 14-18.

Personal clocks should be set one hour forward. As the mnemonic says, Fall back in the fall … and spring forward in the spring. Daylight saving will end Nov. 6.

Hawaii and Arizona (except the Navajo Nation) are the only states that do not observe DST. Territories Guam, American Samoa, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands also do not use DST.

The time change will bring more evening light to campus leading up to the longest day of the year, the summer solstice. Spring arrives at 7:31 p.m. March 20, and the summer solstice will be at 1:16 p.m. June 21 when the sun is at its most northern location in the sky. The summer solstice is the longest day of the year; days then become shorter until the winter solstice Dec. 21.
