Would you attend your college classes during hol hamoed? We don't write in hol hamoed, but I can't imagine skipping an entire week of classes, though Hashem comes first of course, so I want to do the right thing.

Is it not mechubad the chag to attend classes on hol hamoed? Yes, I will ask, but what was your experience?

I went to college on Chol Hamoad. I even took tests. I also went to work.

I did.

I remember once having to ask a shaila about attending chemistry lab on chol hamoed Pesach in case some of the ingredients I was going to be working with were chametz. Luckily it wasn't an issue.

I went because they took off from your grade if you took off too many days and I already was missing because of Yom Tov. I always handed in work early (everything seemed to be due on Pesach and Succos) .

If it's davar ha'aveid (meaning, something that will incur significant loss) then the general rule is that you are allowed to go.

You can ask a shaila about writing.
I work in a medical office and write on chol hamoed when I work.

I would definitely go. Most people work during chol Hamoed. This is no different.

I always went to college classes and to work on chol hamoed. I had to take off so many days for actual chag that I could never afford to miss more days.

No writing on Chol Hamoed? I've never heard of this. What's the problem with writing?
