This Week at APSU: Fall Break begins a quiet week at Austin Peay State University

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – The leaves are changing colors (more from a lack of rain than a shift in the season), and as they quietly fall across Austin Peay State University, only a few squirrels and feral cats can be heard scampering through them. That’s because it’s Austin Peay State University’s Fall Break, October 14th-15th. Neither the Clarksville Campus nor Fort Campbell Center will have classes those two days.
