Conflicts with School?

Does anyone else have conflicts with Burning Man and school? I'm working full time, but also pursuing a master's degree part time. My semester starts on 8/25, and Burning Man is from 8/30 to 9/6, so I'm going to miss either the first or second week of classes if I go for the whole week, which I need to do in order to setup our theme camp.

I really don't understand what the fascination is with Labor Day weekend. Don't they realize that most schools start classes during that time period? Why don't they just move the date back a week or two so that it's still part of summer break? It's much harder to get out of class than to request a day off of work, and Labor Day is only saving one vacation day.

I guess if I can't convince my professors to work around Burning Man, I'm going to have to work around class. This means I'll have to go in and help setup the first weekend, then leave, and then come back for the final extended weekend. Do you know how hard it's going to be to actually leave once I'm there? I don't know if I'll be able to do it! :)
