CHICAGO — Chicago State University is canceling spring break.

The cash-strapped school said Tuesday it has to hold classes during the week of March 14th in order to finish out the semester.

They’re also moving up finals by nine days and commencement by two weeks in an effort to avoid running out of money.

University officials say they’re facing this financial crisis because of the budget stalemate in Springfield.
